  1. Why does this drug dealer get away with crime?

  2. Until 5:00 I though your guest's analysis was brilliant. It's the US that made the prisoner swap proposal and politicized this particular case.

  3. el chapo,Viktor Bout(merchant of death) for Brittney Griner

  4. Only wnba star gets traded back home but the US marine stayed in prison.

  5. Do not give up the Russian murderer and arms runner to get back Griner!! Anyone regret our getting back deserter Bowe Berghdahl? Among the Gitmo 5 we gave up to get him was Khairullah Khairkhwa, who planned the Taliban's return!!

  6. they gave her 9 years just to play people to push the prisoner swap.Really exchange a basketball player against a weapon seller. That s terrorist moves by russia.

  7. The miscarriage of justice it trading a dope smoking fool for someone who has murdered good decent people. He will resume murdering people mothers and children for this potheads freedom

  8. I think that the US government SHOULD bring Brittney Griner home—after she has served her nine-year sentence. But she should still have to pay for the plane ride. Boo-hoo!

  9. Celebs get help but no names go to jail. Not fair. Pot charge for murderer is not fair exchange.

  10. Swap merchant of death for the two us veterans…

  11. Let her rot in jail, she did the crime and she should do the time.

  12. So if she is let go in the exchange will she have to serve TIME here in the US ?? …You know she has to be debriefed so she not going to her house right away or playing ball in the near future so I just wanted to know what yall think

  13. She lgbt blk jailed in a women prison in Moscow. She seems happy.

  14. Thank you for sharing this video with me.

  15. Russia:
    Drugs are bad..
    Killing hundreds a day Good…

  16. Start a count:

    How many persons will be charged each day in the US for possession of the same type of vape cartridges???

  17. Miscarriage wtf you Americans are delusional it’s illegal your diplomatic processes

  18. No we will not he is ours now stop pretending and hopeless assumptions we will not give him back until 2031

  19. She can barely dunk .. No deal

  20. caught up in politics

  21. Um… no leave her in there. Dont swap prisoners.

  22. Thank you President Biden❤ Finally we have a President who cares about the American People.

  23. Only someone as despicable as Biden, would be trying to bring back an American traitor

  24. Ha ha the USA lost.

  25. Is it a man is it a lady what is it Aerosmith said it best Dude Looks Like A Lady Russia can keep her we got enough freaks in America

  26. Leave the girrafe in jail! Bring the Marine home dammit!

  27. ridiculous if they swap out government is corrupt!!! #Clearly

  28. do the crime do the time!!!

  29. Biden says its unacceptable???

    Then He should release ALL Cannabis prisoners in USA.

  30. So Trump gets 20 hostages back at no cost to the United States turn his presidency. Biden might trade one and he's a hero? Insane.

  31. Do this mean we can smoke now. Why she free she still broke the law

  32. Gonna be heartbreaking when she gets home to learn a pack of frothing racists condemned her.

  33. Why didn't they just make it 9 years 11 months?
    Kids don't do drugs. 💯😂

  34. Florida ranks as the state with the harshest marijuana penalties. In fact, the state's laws call for five years of imprisonment and a fine of $6,000 for possession of merely one ounce. Based on this, it seems to me she actually got a fair sentence.

  35. Brittney Griner broke the law; and the law won.

  36. SHE'S NOT ENTITLED

    ONLY OBVIOUS YOU DON'T BRING CONTRABAND WITH YOU WHEN TRAVELING TO AND FROM RUSSIA

    HER OWN FAULT SHE'S THERE

    OTHERS HAVE BEEN THERE LONGER THAN HER BRING THEM BACK FIRST

    TRADE A "MERCHANT OF DEATH" FOR HER ???

    NO WAY NOT FAIR

    HER FAULT

    DON'T DO THE CRIME IF YOU CAN'T DO THE TIME
