Two days ago Junior suggested this to troll the media.
NBC News reports:
During the White House briefing on the coronavirus pandemic, a reporter asked President Trump if he would consider a pardon for Joe Exotic. Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, is the centerpiece of the Netflix viral documentary “Tiger King.”
The 57-year-old is currently serving a 22-year sentence after being convicted in a murder-for-hire plot, but he claims he’s been wrongfully convicted. “I know nothing about it,” President Trump said. “22 years for what? What did he do?”
After the reporter briefing explained the murder-for-hire plot, the president began asking other reporters in the room if they would recommend a pardon. “I’ll take a look,” he said.

The media is so addicted to sensationalism that a journalist at the Coronavirus Press Conference literally asked Trump whether he will listen to Donald Trump Jr.’s suggestion to pardon Tiger King Joe Exotic for hiring a hit man. We have a broken government and a broken media.

WTAF: A reporter wastes our time by asking Donald Trump if he’ll pardon Joe Exotic, saying he’s the only one getting ratings as high as Trump’s press conferences.
How many Americans will die today?

“Will you pardon Joe Exotic?”
