Lady Gaga says she is incredibly honoured to be asked to sing the Star Spangled Banner and sent out a hopeful message of peace on Twitter last night.
I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls. Love, from the Capitol 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/fATHiJHCq0— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) January 19, 2021
As outgoing President, Donald Trump had the chance to pardon a bunch of convicts serving sentences in jails around America. Joe Exotic, aka Tiger King, was so positive that he would receive a pardon for his 22 year sentence for conspiring to murder Carol Baskin, that he had a limo waiting for him outside the prison. Not just any limo. A 38ft "Monster Ram Truck Limo".
Joe Exotic's legal team tell me they are "100% confident" Trump will pardon the 'Tiger King' from his 22-year criminal sentence. Here's the 38ft "Monster Ram Truck Limo" they've reserved to pick him up. They plan to grab some McRibs immediately after. pic.twitter.com/mK69eGLiBV— Greg Walters (@thegregwalters) January 19, 2021
