The notorious "Tiger King" and reality TV personality Joe Exotic is competing for the presidency in 2024. Exotic is determined about getting his point over while being incarcerated in a federal jail for animal mistreatment and planning to kill his competitor, Florida-based animal rights activist Carole Baskin.

Exotic, whose true name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, became well-known in 2020 when Tiger King, a Netflix docuseries about his peculiar life as a tiger trainer and zookeeper, became popular. He pleaded with People to ignore his legal issues and pay attention to his platform in a rambling campaign message posted on his website.
The former operator of the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park is a libertarian who advocates abolishing the IRS and reforming the criminal justice system. He thinks that politicians are stealing Americans' hard-earned money via taxes and handing it to other countries for nothing in return.
Exotic made a bid for the presidency in 2016, and she's determined to win this time. He thinks he can use his global platform to force leaders to pay attention to American problems and provide solutions.
However, Exotic may not be the only presidential contender in 2024 to run from prison. There are rumors that a grand jury in New York is getting ready to charge former President Trump with paying Stormy Daniels hush money.
Joe Exotic is obviously committed to speaking up despite his legal issues. Many conservative Republicans may support his stance of criminal justice reform and abolishing the IRS. Yet it's still unclear if Exotic will be able to beat the odds and win the presidency in 2024.
