President Donald Trump never shied away from surrounding himself with miscreants and often seemed tickled by the most brazen attempts at criminality, seeming to deem them almost a form of counterculture, thumbing one’s nose at the man. As such, it seemed 100 percent plausible that this president would pardon Joe Exotic, the star character in the Netflix docuseries Tiger King, who was convicted of trafficking and killing tigers, not to mention trying to do the same to nemesis Carole Baskin. It didn’t happen for Joe Exotic (yet). But Trump did pardon former campaign chair Steve Bannon and dozens of others fraudsters.
