Per Joel McHale, Alleged Document On Don Lewis Doesn’t Exonerate Carole Baskin
Joel McHale says the alleged document on Don Lewis doesn’t exonerate Carole Baskin.
According to TMZ, who managed to catch up with John McHale at LAX, their camera man asked what everyone is wondering, whether the document that suggests husband Don Lewis is still alive, exonerated Carole Baskin of his death/disappearance. Joel McHale says – nope, not so fast.
Joel McHale’s Different View On Carole Baskin
Joel, who hosted the ‘Tiger King’ post-show special, says he sees things a bit differently and actually convinced the TMZ cameraman who caught up with him to agree, per TMZ. Joel says that, assuming the document is even credible, and Don Lewis is actually alive and breathing in Costa Rica, it still doesn’t clear Carole Baskin of any wrongdoing – even more so if she’s known about it all this time.
But, for Carole Baskins part, she seems to have been unaware of the alleged Department of Homeland Security document and maintains that she did her part in trying to find her husband. Otherwise, she still claims she had nothing to do with his disappearance in 1997.
The actor and television host doesn’t believe any of this paints her in a good light and maintains that, assuming he’s still alive, it’s just really suspicious how Lewis could have remained alive for so long. The former Soup host doesn’t believe Baskin has any sort of retribution coming but he doesn’t think we should be calling her a saint either.
Tragedies Connected To ‘Tiger King’
