WNBPA Executive Director ‘Overjoyed’ By Griner’s Return

Published

on



WNBA star Brittney Griner is back on U.S. soil after a harrowing 300-day nightmare in Russian custody. Terri Jackson, Executive of the Women’s National Basketball Players Association, joins Andrea Mitchell with her reaction. “We are overjoyed. Overjoyed. And our prayers have been answered,” says Jackson. Asked whether Griner will return to her basketball career, Jackson says, “I don’t even know that I care. I wanted her back. I want her to be whole. I want her to be taken care of inside and out, top to bottom. I want her physical fitness and mental wellness and fitness to be where it needs to be. And if basketball brings her joy still, we are welcoming her back to the fold.”

    I'd think about PAYING WOMEN players on the WNBA as much as the NBA players…that is if you don't want to see more leaving for Russia only to become hostages.

    If you were sitting in a foreign prison, the media & the Biden administration wouldn't even be talking about you. If you were convicted of domestic violence, convicted of drug charges, were anti national anthem, etc. do you really think people would be fighting to get you freed? Biden said "The idea we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick," but then he released the Merchant of Death. A thirty year career politician & a two time vp & this is the best deal he can make? UAE? Dont they have prison cells & the death penalty for homosexuals? Maybe the Biden administration can work “tirelessly” for the rail workers. After all he is a man for the unions. What an insult to the men & women that really did work tirelessly to bring the Merchant of Death to justice. Most people have trouble finding a job after being released from prison but I’m sure Russia will find plenty of work for him in ukraine. This is just another failed political stunt like Biden’s student debt forgiveness. Hopefully Brett Favre can stay out of a jail cell.

    WHERE IS MSNBC on the latest Twitter email files dump Friday night? Elon Musk has uncovered a MASSIVE censorship conspiracy involving Twitter and federal government agencies like the FBI! Democrats talk about preserving democracy when they and their allies in the media censored conservative speech to promote Democratic candidates AND INFLUENCE A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION! Twitter also censored doctors in the pandemic who raised concerns about shutting down health facilities and closing schools! THIS IS UN-AMERICAN AND THE MEDIA CONTINUES TO IGNORE A STORY BIGGER THAN WATERGATE!

    Joe Biden doesn't care about your safety when it comes guns. Trading a America hating basketball player. For a arms dealer who's Nickname is the merchant of death!

    Piece of s**t should have been left to rot! Did she stand for the Russian anthem when it was playing? The only loser in this trade is America!p
