It’s been widely reported that Joe Exotic’s defence team submitted a 257 page request to President Trump requesting a pardon for his part in trying to have Carole Baskins killed. Perhaps you missed this “news” because the mainstream media is too focused on Covid-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement around the world but let’s be honest, this is the kind of news we signed up for when Trump was elected.
I hope Trump does pardon him. I hope they then mash the brands together. Maybe an Apprentice: Tiger King edition? Let Joe Exotic train a bunch of hillbillies on the proper technique for raising wild animals and have Trump come out and fire them at the end. Who wouldn’t watch that? The ratings would make the Super Bowl look like an old Full House rerun.
And there’s reason for optimism that this could happen. Trump loves attention and ratings and “Tiger King” was a HUGE success for Netflix. Plus the former star of Home Alone 2 is about to be unemployed. Maybe, just maybe, if we all wished hard enough (And voted!) we could make this happen!
