Joe Exotic has been criticized by the Libertarian Party for the 2024 presidential bid
Joe Exotic He is being dragged for his recent announcement of his presidential bid, but it didn’t happen Carol Baskin — instead, by the party he says he’s running with.
Angela McArdle, president and spokesperson for the Libertarian Party, told TMZ… “We stand for personal and economic freedom, we are not a landing pad for former reality stars and D-list celebrities.” Ouch.
She says the “Tiger King” star hasn’t been shown to have a full understanding of the party’s ideas, and is even calling for him to run for governor in 2018 as an Oklahoma liberal — saying the bid was “just tigers and glamor.”
She adds that she is very sympathetic to people “who are mistreated in prison”, but points out that this does not mean it is right to support someone who has made “bad choices”.
Anyone can run for libertarian office, Angela tells us, and there’s not much the party can do to stop him — instead, she urges people to send libertarian literature to Joe while he’s locked up. In her words, “If he’s going to talk about libertarianism, he might as well learn about it.”
Aside from understanding his party’s platform, there is a not so small issue of 20 years left for candidate Joe in prison!
As we reported, Joe recently spoke with us on a file Exclusive prison interview …and tell us why he put himself on the ballot.
