‘Absolutely not!’ says the narrator. Carole Baskin has ruled out running for political office in the future.
CAROLE BASKIN confesses she has no plans to enter US politics or run for government in the near future.
The 60-year-old sprang to prominence last year during the outset of the pandemic, when his Netflix comedy Tiger King drew over 64 million viewers.
“It was one of the bizarre questions that one of the producers of Tiger King, Eric Goode, asked a hundred times during the five years he was filming it,” said the CEO of Big Cat Rescue in response to rumors she may one day get into politics.
“Don’t you want to run for office, don’t you want to do something?” he continued asking.
“I was like no, no, no,” Mrs Baskin said. “I care about the political sphere in terms of Big Cats and their protection, but I don’t even want to think about dealing with people’s healthcare, the economy, or anything like that.”
Joe Exotic, 58, previously attempted but failed to run for President of the United States in the 2016 election.
Exotic also ran for Governor of Oklahoma for the Libertarian Party in the 2018 primary election, but was unsuccessful.
Joe Exotic is presently serving a 22-year sentence for attempting to hire two different persons to assassinate animal rights activist Carole Baskin and for breaking wildlife regulations.
There are still about 7,000 tigers in zoos and private collections in the United States, which is approximately double the number of wild tigers on the planet.
Mrs. Baskin has worked to get individual ownership of big cats prohibited in the United States.
The Big Cat Public Safety Act would make individual ownership of big cats illegal in the United States.
“It ultimately passed with a two-thirds majority in the House last year, but it was in December and we just couldn’t get it on the Senate schedule in time,” she remarked when questioned about the bill’s status.
Mrs. Baskin is optimistic that the bill will pass this time. “We presented it in January, and when we debuted it in the Senate, it was the first time we got bipartisan support,” she continued.
“That gives me hope that we will get this done this time; we now have 198 cosponsors in the House, so things are moving quickly.”
Mrs Baskin told “Brinkwire Summary News” how she would like to be remembered one day.
