Trump’s last full day in office is today and The Tiger King, Joe Exotic, is so sure he’s getting a presidential pardon from Trump, he rented the ultimate redneck limo and plans on getting his hair done BEFORE he gets home from prison.
I’m told this is the limousine that will be waiting to pick up Joe Exotic if he receives the pardon tomorrow.
The lead advocate of Team Tiger tells me they’ll be taking him to a secure location. He says Joe doesn’t want anyone to see him until his hair his done. @koconews https://t.co/SICtee1AIl pic.twitter.com/AZATiyleig

Source: At some point on Tuesday—Donald Trump’s last full day in office—the president is expected to unveil a list of more than 100 pardons, and one familiar face has perhaps got his hopes too high. Joe Exotic, whose entertaining yet ultimately criminal exploits kept the nation distracted in the early days of the pandemic, has reportedly hired some kind of hideous limousine/pick-up truck hybrid to collect him in the expectation of a Trump pardon. Perris Jones, a reporter KOCO5 in Oklahoma City, posted a photo of the truck—as well as the detail that Exotic will be immediately taken to a secure location upon his release to get his hair done before photos can be taken. Jones reported that Exotic’s team is “absolutely confident” that Trump will come through for him before he leaves office tomorrow.
Nothing says ‘I got a Presidential Pardon’ like riding around in a rented converted Dodge Ram super stretch limo truck AFTER you get your mullet dyed and styled down at the local salon before posing for prison release pictures.
If you watched the series, Joe is easily one of the most unlikeable character’s in TV history. He’s a greasy southerner who was sentenced to 20+ years after being found guilty of hiring a hitman to kill Carol Baskin. Had the hitman he hired decided to kill Carol instead of getting drunk on the way to the murder, Joe wouldn’t be getting a pardon and Carol wouldn’t have been on Dancing With The Stars and we’d be none the wiser.
I predict a NEW reality show for Joe. A behind the scenes, post prison themed series where Joe tries to pick up the pieces of his disgusting old life.
They could follow Joe around as he buys a new fifth wheel while frequenting pool halls for 25 year old fella’s who love old guys while capturing the finer details of Joe trying to piece together what looked like the worst life ever.
I know I’m in.
It’s a big day, kids. These Pardons are going to be fucking hilarious.
