Joe Exotic Makes New Claims In Desperate Plea For Pardon From Joe Biden
"Tiger King" star Joe Exotic apologizes to President Joe Biden, claiming that he may face multiple cancers at the same time and must be released in order to receive proper care.
Exotic, real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is serving a 22-year prison sentence for attempting to hire a killer to murder Carole Baskin, the founder of Big Cat Rescue, whom he considered his nemesis, as well for violations of federal wild animals. But in a series of messages posted on Twitter, he claimed, as in the past, that "city cops" and the US Department of Justice were "out of control" because of corruption.
Biden, he said, could "correct this and sign the pardon Trump left behind so I can go home and get the right medical care and the right food."
Exotic and his lawyers had apologized to then-President Donald Trump and were so optimistic that he would receive one that a limo was waiting to get him home from prison. When the pardon never occurred, Exotic Trump struck because he had instead given "his corrupt friends" pardons.
Now, Exotic said his PSA levels were high and he could have prostate cancer, he has mouth pain, he is losing weight and several medical exams are planned:
Joe Exotic and his entourage instantly became celebrities last spring when the documentary series "Tiger King" appeared on Netflix shortly after the first coronavirus shutdowns began. However, several personalities from his past said that anyone who felt sympathy for him after watching the series was under the wrong impression.
Rick Kirkham, who worked with Exotic on his own series until the footage was destroyed in a suspicious fire, called him "pure evil".
"He enjoyed seeing people and animals injured," Kirkham told The Daily Beast last year. “He enjoyed it. He figured it out. "
A juror on Exotics' trial said the "Tiger King" was convicted on strong evidence, including details not seen on the series.
"Don't believe everything you see because there's so much more to it than what they show you," the judge, identified only as Kristin, told Fox Nation's Nancy Grace.
