Someone asked Trump about a Joe Exotic pardon

Donald Trump held another coronavirus briefing on Wednesday and during the question and answer session one reporter asked the president about the popular Tiger King documentary on Netflix and a pardon for Joe “Exotic” Maldonado-Passage.

“I’ll take a look,” Trump told New York Post reporter Steven Nelson when asked about the case and his son’s support for a pardon during a White House briefing.

“Which son? Must be Don — what did he do?” Trump said of Donald Trump Jr., and then asked about Maldonado-Passage.

“I know nothing about it … he has 22 for what? What did he do?” Trump asked.

Once explained what Maldonado-Passage was in for, Trump asked if the reporter thought he did it.

“Are you on his side? Are you recommending a pardon?”

He then asked CNN’s Jim Acosta for his thought, “Would you recommend a pardon?”

“I’m not weighing in on Tiger King,” replied Acosta.
