Dallas Cowboys Star Slams Brittney Griner Prison Swap after Biden Left Marine Behind: ‘Hell Nah’

Dallas Cowboys superstar Micah Parsons has slammed the prisoner swap that saw WNBA star Brittney Griner released after it emerged that Democrat President Joe Biden left a U.S. Marine behind in the deal.

As Slay News reported earlier, Biden agreed to exchange Griner for dangerous Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, who is known as the “Merchant of Death.”

Parsons fired back with an angry response to the news on Twitter.

“Wait nah!! We left a Marine?!! Hell nah,” he said.

“My last tweet was no shot at Brittney Griner,” he added.

“I’m super happy she’s back home as she should be.

“I just have family who have served and it’s crazy to me the President wouldn’t bring him home too.

“I’m the furthest thing from a Trump supporter but I’m not a fan of Biden either.”

Cherelle Griner said:

“Over the last nine months, you all have been so privy to one of the darkest moments of my life.

“Today, I’m just standing here overwhelmed with emotions, but the most important emotion that I have right now is just sincere gratitude for President Biden and his entire administration.

“Today my family is whole, but as you all are aware, there’s so many other families who are not whole.

“Brittney and I will remain committed to the work of getting every American home, including Paul Whelan, whose family is in our thoughts today.

“We do understand that there are still people out here who are enduring what I endured the last nine months of missing, tremendously their loved ones.”

Steve Zissou, Viktor Bout’s lawyer in the US, said:

“As I have urged for some time, given the fifteen long years that Viktor Bout has been in custody since the United States government targeted him in 2006, his exchange for Brittney Griner, who has only been in custody for a few months, is fair.

“Viktor Bout has been reunited with his family, just as Brittney Griner is with hers,” he said.

“The people of Russia never gave up on him during the fifteen years of his wrongful incarceration, just as the people of the United States never gave up on Ms. Griner.

“Hopefully, this is just the first of many reasonable agreements between the U.S. and Russia that will lead to better relations and a safer world.”
