'Tiger King' Might Be Pardoned By Trump Today And A Limo Is Already Waiting Outside Prison
On Donald Trump's last day in office, he is expected to spend the day issuing around 100 pardons or commutations, but it is not yet known who will be receiving them.
Now fans of the hit Netflix documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness are theorizing the "King" himself, Joe Exotic may be on the president's list.

I think the president has sided with us and I believe it will take most of the limelight away from president-elect Joe Biden.

Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, owned a wildlife park in the small town of Wynnewood, Oklahoma before he was arrested in 2018 for wildlife violations and a murder-for-hire scheme to kill rival zoo owner Carole Baskin, which landed him a 22-year prison sentence.
But that may be cut short if Trump decides to pardon Exotic, and Eric Love, the lead Exotic's case, is confident the president will do so.
"We’re confident enough we already have a limousine parked about half a mile from the prison. We are really in action mode right now," Love told The Metro.
The limousine is, of course, a vehicle built for a Tiger King, as it is an all-black extended Dodge Truck.

Love has also discussed what Exotic wants to do in his first hours if he is released from prison.
"He hasn’t had his hair done in two-and-a-half years. That’s the first order of business. Then we’ll probably go and get some pizzas, steak, maybe a McRib," Love told The Metro.
Though the Netflix documentary became wildly popular, many would like to see Exotic stay behind bars.
