WATCH: Trump Asked if He’d Consider Pardoning Joe Exotic of “Tiger King”

During a lighter moment today, President Trump was asked if he’d consider a pardon for Joe Exotic of “Tiger King.”

Reporter:

One of the biggest rating hits of the coronavirus, aside from these briefings, has been a show on Netflix called ‘Tiger King,’ and the man who’s the star of this is a former zoo owner who’s serving a 22-year prison sentence. He’s asking you for a pardon, saying he was unfairly convicted. Your son yesterday jokingly said that he was going to advocate for it. I wonder if you’d seen the show, and if you have any thoughts on pardoning Joe Exotic.

President Trump:

Which son? Must be Don….I had a feeling it was Don. Is that what he said? I don’t know. I know nothing about it. He has 22 years for what? What did he do?

Reporter:

He allegedly hired someone to murder an animal rights activist, but he said that he didn’t do that.

President Trump:

You think he didn’t do it? Are you on his side? Are you recommending a pardon?

Reporter:

No, I’m not advocating

President Trump:

As a reporter, you’re not able to do that, you’d be criticized by these reporters.

President Trump then turned to Jim Acosta and asked if he’d recommend a pardon.
