In an episode of HBO’s The Shop, anti-American basketball blowhard LeBron James spoke up about Brittney Griner, the WNBA star languishing in a Russian jail on drug charges, saying if he were her, he might not even want to return to America.
“Now, how can she feel like America has her back? I would be feeling like, ‘Do I even want to go back to America?’” he said, responding to the claim that the Biden administration has not done enough to get her out of her Russian jail cell.
Griner was in Russia playing for a Russian basketball team during the WNBA off-season. When she tried to leave the country, she was arrested in February for having a vape cartridge infused with CBD in her luggage. She was arrested and charged with possession of an illegal drug in February and has spent every day since in a Russian jail.
She pleaded guilty, but wrote a letter last week to the Biden administration pleading for help to get her out. This is the same woman who publicly refused to stand for the national anthem at games, because she holds the same racist ingratitude for America as LeBron.
