In the past few weeks, President Biden has accomplished more than most of his own voters had imagined.

Disgraced former zoo owner Joe Exotic, who starred on the infamous Tiger King documentary, hopes for one more thing.

From prison, he gushed over 90 Day Fiance alum Jesse Meester in a bizarre social media post.

Jesse has reciprocated. Is Jesse’s, um, “star power” enough to help Joe secure a pardon? He sure hopes so.

Joe Exotic will likely remain in prison for the next couple of decades. But he’s still finding ways to stir up controversy on the inside.

Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, starred on Tiger King.

He is now serving a 21-year prison sentence for horrific animal cruelty and for an attempted murder-for-hire plot.

In recent years, he has tried to capitalize upon his Netflix fame to escape justice.

The saga of Joe Exotic has captured the hearts of a quarantined nation. Now, Cardi B is working to ensure that Joe gets the happy ending he deserves.

Very publicly, he appealed to disgraced former president Trump when he was in office, seeking a pardon.

He even reached out to Kim Kardashian, who advocates for people who shouldn’t be behind bars, to intercede on his behalf.

Neither of those worked. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Joe Exotic is now looking to Jesse Meester, an infamous 90 Day Fiance alum whose vanity and narcissism know no limits.

“Meet my amazing dear friend Jesse Meester, actor, model, and so much more,” Joe Exotic gushes on Facebook and Instagram.

“You will see him around on my stuff more and more,” he wrote ominously.

Tiger King star Joe Exotic, real name Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, shared his love for 90 Day Fiance villain Jesse Meester in this Facebook post.

“As he is going to help me get a voice to the White House,” Joe explained.

He said that Jesse will advocate “for President Biden to sign my pardon before November of this year.”

Joe then invited his fans and followers to “Show him some love. Love you, Jesse.”

90 Day Fiance villain Jesse Meester voiced his support for Tiger King star Joe Exotic, real name Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, in this Instagram Story post.

Jesse boosted the post, hilariously adding “Real recognizes real.”

“Let’s unite,” he invited Joe Exotic and his fans.

“Free Joe Exotic,” Jesse tagged the post. Awful idea, but kind of hilarious.

Jesse also left a public comment under Joe’s post.

“We love you too Joe!,” he wrote. This begs the question, who exactly is “we.”

“People close to you turned their back on you,” Jesse accused, “but not us.”

Joe Exotic is going through yet another breakup. The Tiger King has called off his engagement to a fellow inmate.

“You helped many people through [COVID-19] lockdown,” Jesse generously claimed.

“And we should never forget the truth and authenticity you lived your life with,” he added.

“It’s sad that the backstabbing and lying has become the norm [in] this society,” Jesse wrote.

Jesse then declared that it is “Time to unite and fight back to get you out.”

This exchange is downright farcical on multiple levels. Joe is desperate and Jesse is wildly vain.

People remembered also that Jesse interviewed Dillon Passage, Joe’s estranged husband, just last year.

People also cannot help but think of two things.

One, that Jesse loves attention, and used to vie for Trump’s attention on Twitter.

Two, that Joe Exotic has a history of ending up with men who, at least initially, identify as straight.

However, Jesse and Jeniffer Tarazona seem to still be in a relationship.

In the past few days, they have appeared together in social media photos.

So their romance is still as real and authentic as it ever was — take that as you will.
