‘A Nation That Spits on Its Heroes’: Russian Media Laughs at Our Wokeness in Swapping for Brittney Griner and Leaving Paul Whelan to Rot

Yesterday’s announcement of the prisoner swap between Russia and the United States that sent WNBA star Brittney Griner home in exchange for Viktor Bout, known as the “Merchant of Death, prompted both applause and criticism for the Biden-Harris regime. But the biggest concern is that alleged “spy” Paul Whelan continues to rot.

According to CNN:

Griner was released in a prisoner swap that involved Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout. The exchange, however, did not include another American that the State Department has declared wrongfully detained, Paul Whelan.

“She’s safe, she’s on a plane, she’s on her way home,” Biden said at the White House Thursday morning alongside Griner’s wife, Cherelle. “After months of being unjustly detained in Russia, held under untolerable circumstances, Brittney will soon be back in the arms of her loved ones, and she should have been there all along.”

Biden acknowledged that Griner’s release was occurring while Whelan remained imprisoned, saying that Whelan’s family “have to have such mixed emotions today.”

Russian media has some ideas about why this happened. Paul Whelan is a “national hero” who was allegedly working for his country. He is also a White heterosexual male who isn’t a drug addict while Griner is a Black homosexual female who couldn’t travel go a day without her THC. And they’re laughing at us over it. Watch:

They’re not wrong.
