Joe Exotic has limo waiting as he expects presidential pardon from Donald Trump

The Tiger King star is serving a 22 year sentence.

Joe Exotic, the man we all became temporarily obsessed with while trying to get to grips with living in a lockdown and then completely forgot, is anticipating a presidential pardon from Donald Trump on his last day in the White House.

In fact, he is so sure Trump will set him free, that he has a limousine parked outside the prison where he is currently serving a 22-year sentence for trying to hire a hitman to kill his rival Carol Baskin, as well as numerous animal abuse charges.

With Joe Biden's inauguration taking place tomorrow (20 January), Trump has just hours left in the Oval Office and is expected to dish out around 100 pardons.

And private investigator Eric Love, who is leading Exotic’s case, is certain his client will be exonerated.

"We’re going to be celebrating," Love, told Metro.co.uk.

"We have good reason to believe it will come through. 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.

"I’ve got make-up, wardrobe, the whole unit that will come up. The first thing Joe wants to do, he wants his hair done. He hasn’t had his hair done in two-and-a-half years. That’s the first order of business. Then we’ll probably go and get some pizzas, steak, maybe a McRib."

Joe Exotic's team have reportedly already shot a video thanking Donald Trump in anticipation for the former zoo keeper walking free.
