We all remember that WNBA star and entitled brat Brittney Griner got released from a Russian prison in the most lopsided prisoner exchange in American history - the one where we released the most infamous arms dealer of the past 50 years to get back a clueless social justice who didn’t know Russia’s rules on weed possession.

Putting all that aside - and the fact that we left behind a former U.S. Marine and a school teacher - Griner is back in America and enjoying life. Perhaps unironically, her perspective on America has changed after the Biden administration made sure she didn’t have to face nine-and-a-half years in a Russian prison.

Before Griner and the Phoenix Mercury played their preseason game against the Los Angeles Sparks on Friday (the game that no one probably watched), Griner was in awe of how powerful the singing of the “Star Spangled Banner” was.

“Hearing the national anthem, it definitely hit different,” Griner said. “It’s like when you go for the Olympics, you’re sitting there, about to get gold put on your neck, the flags are going up, and the anthem is playing, it just hits different.”

Well isn’t that funny, because in 2020 she couldn’t be bothered to even be on the court for the national anthem before WNBA games.

"I honestly feel we should not play the National Anthem during our season," Griner said. "I think we should take that much of a stand. I'm going to protest regardless," she said. "I'm not going to be out there for the National Anthem. If the league continues to want to play it, that's fine. It will be all season long, I'll not be out there.”

My oh my, America sure looks pretty good to Griner now that we got her idiotic self out of a Russian prison. Gosh, what a difference that makes!

Maybe Griner - and all her self-centered, America-hating peers - will shut up and realize that they have it pretty good on American soil. Maybe they’ll be more appreciative fo a country that allows them to act like spoiled children and make more money than the average American playing a sport. I guarantee you countries like Saudi Arabia, China, and Pakistan wouldn’t put up with their bullcrap.

But knowing Griner, she’ll likely hop back on the social justice train soon. She’ll just needs some time.
