It seems as if Joe Exotic‘s pardon by President Donald Trump is an upcoming reality. Such a good one, that the “Tiger King” legal team have a limousine parked near the prison — including a beauty crew ready to clean up the feline’s master.
“This time tomorrow, we’re going to be celebrating,” said Eric Love, who is heading the Exotic’s release, , told Metro.co.uk.
“We’re confident enough we already have a limousine parked about half a mile from the prison. We are really in action mode right now,” he said of a stretch limo near the Federal Medical Center in Fort Worth in Texas.
Aside of Exotic, many others seek for President Trump’s pardon. According to Esquire, there is Dr Salomon Melgen, an influential eye doctor in Palm Beach, who was sentenced to 17 years for healthcare fraud. And rapper Lil Wayne who carried with illegal weapons possession while on a private jet.
But for Joe, the pardon case is an exceptional one. The limousine is almost on, and ready to pick the King Of Tigers and get him ready to be put back on life, Love said to The Sun.
“We are not going to have any cameras with us. It’s going to be a very private moment,” Love said — but purely because Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, wants to be glammed up first.
“Joe is a very flamboyant person — Joe is a colorful personality. And if you look at someone when they’ve been incarcerated, they don’t look like that when they’re coming out,” Love said.
“So Joe’s got to have that platinum done, and well that’s what we got — hair, wardrobe and makeup. We’ve got the best in the business,” he said.
Telling Metro that the “Tiger King” star’s hair was “the first order of business,” Love said they would then “probably go and get some pizzas, steak, maybe a McRib.” They then plan to house him in a ranch just outside Fort Worth.
Love said they believe Trump will issue the high-profile pardon in part to “take most of the limelight away from President-elect Joe Biden” — and said they already have a thank-you video recorded.
Love also went a step forward with President’s pardon, by saying, “Last night, I shot a congratulatory video thanking Donald Trump so we have it queued up and ready to go,” he told the Metro.
Maldonado-Passage is a year into his sentence.
Trump previously said he will “take a look” at the pardon request.
