Anthem-hater Brittney Griner probably wishes she could stand proudly with her hand on her heart, and sing the US national anthem, right about now. The WNBA player, who spent so much of her time and energy trying to get the national anthem thrown out of all WNBA games, just learned her fate from a Russian judge. Brittney was arrested on drug charges after she smuggled marijuana into Russia, which is illegal. Brittney has pled guilty and begged a judge to go easy on her. Well, today is the day she found out her sentence, and the judge did NOT go easy on her, at all. She sentenced Brittney to 9 years in prison.
TMZ reported that Joe Biden has just slammed the ruling … calling the sentence “unacceptable” — and vowing to do everything in his power to get Griner home soon.
“I call on Russia to release her immediately so she can be with her wife, loved ones, friends and teammates,” Biden said in a statement released by the White House on Thursday.
“My administration will continue to work tirelessly and pursue every possible avenue to bring Brittney and Paul Whelan home safely as soon as possible.”
8:26 AM PT — Griner has just been sentenced to nine years behind bars in the case. She was also slapped with a 1 million rubles fine (about $16,300).
She will have the opportunity to appeal.
In all likelihood, Griner won’t serve the sentence in its entirety. U.S. and Russian officials have been negotiating a prisoner swap that would reportedly include a Russian arms dealer nicknamed “The Merchant of Death.”
Great, so the Russians get a guy called “Merchant of Death” and we get an America-hating woman who legitimately broke the law in a foreign country?
Sounds like a “fair trade” right?
Brittney was on video, as she heard her sentence.

If you ask me, they should force her to serve out her sentence. It’s not like she was “unjustly” arrested. That’s the law of the country, and she should have known that, and she likely did, and broke the law anyway.
Why does she deserve some preferential treatment? Because she’s a “liberal” who hates America? Do you think Biden would bend over backward to help a Trump supporter who was wrongly imprisoned?
No, he wouldn’t. Just ask the January 6th prisoners he’s locked up like animals.
