If there’s one person who knows exactly what exotic animals need and which ones belong in cages, it’s most definitely Carole Baskin. The former Dancing With the Stars contestant is feeling pretty elated that her enemy Joe Exotic did not get a presidential pardon from outgoing President Donald Trump. While Joe Exotic is certainly upset about the ordeal, Carole is feeling quite elated. Here’s what you need to know.
Trump issued more than 100 pardons and commutations early Wednesday as one of his last tasks at the White House ahead of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ inauguration ceremony. For Carole Baskin, she believes that the Tiger King deserves the same treatment that he once gave animals.
Carole Baskin Says Joe Exotic Totally Belongs In A Cage
She told Buzzfeed News in an interview, “I think only Joe’s team and the media were ever even thinking about a pardon for Joe. There is no benefit, other than a feeble attempt to deflect attention, for anyone to pardon someone who walked up to five tigers and shot them in the head in order to clear cage space for the circus, who was going to pay him to board their tigers during the offseason.”
Meanwhile, it doesn’t seem like Joe Exotic is going to let this go. Joe’s private investigator, Eric Love, told Fox News that his client is not guilty of his convicted crimes.
“140 million Joe Exotic fans had a hard time getting out of bed this morning. We are as disappointed that [Trump] did not sign Joe’s Pardon, as we were confident [Tuesday] that he would. It is only because of you 140 million fans that Joe’s Pardon was even a possibility. Since his trial, the evidence has made it clear that Joe is not guilty but, rather, he is a victim of the persons he trusted most,” Love said in a statement.
