Joe Exotic, also known as Joseph Maldonado-Passage, has announced his run for the 2024 presidential bid.
On Wednesday, the Tiger King shared the news on social media with a link to his campaign website.
“Thank you for your interest in my Campaign. Yes, I know I am in Federal Prison, and you might think this is a joke, but it’s not. It is my Constitutional right to do this even from here,” Joe said.
“The only thing I did was put five very old, crippled tigers to sleep in the most humane way possible, and it was approved by my USDA Inspector, so it’s time to get over it. PETA kills thousands of animals a year. Carole has killed over 226 big cats, and most of you eat some kind of animal every day, so it’s time to move past this issue,” Joe states in his campaign message.
“So put aside that I am gay, that I am in prison for now, that I used drugs in the past, that I had more then one boyfriend at once and that Carole hates my guts. This all has not a thing to do with me being able to be your voice,” Joe states. “The best thing you have going for supporting me is that I am used to fighting my whole life just to get by. I am broke, they have taken everything I ever worked for away, and it’s time we take this country back.”
