As President Trump released the long list of pardons in the 11th hour, Lil Wayne’s name made the list of over 140 names.
Remember Lil Wayne faced ten years in jail after pleading guilty to gun possession last year. He had traveled with a loaded handgun from California to Florida in 2019. On October 29th Lil Wayne posted a picture of himself alongside the president and wrote about a “great meeting” he had with President Trump.
Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done. 🤙🏾 pic.twitter.com/Q9c5k1yMWf

Other names included former advisor Steve Bannon and Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez. One name not on the list? Joe Exotic. That’s right, Joseph Maldonado-Passage, aka star of Netflix’s “Tiger King” Joe Exotic, will remain behind bars despite his very public plea.
Maybe next time?
