Tiger King Joe Exotic ‘a really big Donald Trump supporter’ and is ‘excited president might be looking at pardoning him’ – The Sun
TIGER King's Joe Exotic has said he's a "really big Trump backer" and that he is "excited" that the president might be looking at pardoning him.
The Tiger King's husband said in an interview on Wednesday that the president looking into pardoning his beau is "kind of a big deal".
Dillon Passage, Joe's husband, said on UK talk show This Morning: "It's kind of a big deal to have the president address something like that.
"Joe is a really big supporter…
"So when Joe heard that Trump was going to look into it he was really excited to see what could possibly happen."
On April 8, Donald Trump has announced that he will "take a look" at Tiger King Joe Exotic's murder-for-suicide conviction.
The president was asked his opinion on the popular Netflix show during a press conference.
When asked about the felon's conviction, Trump said: "I know nothing about it… he has 22 for what?
"What did he do?"
The president then turned the question on the reporter, asking: "You think he didn't do it?
"Are you on his side? Are you recommending a pardon?"
The Netflix star is serving a 22-year jail sentence after being found guilty of paying a hitman to kill animal activist Carole Baskin, and of killing tigers to make room for more exotic cats in his animal park.
Exotic has reportedly filed a $94 million federal lawsuit against the government for alleged civil rights violations.
