Dan Dakich said it Tuesday, and he said it again on Wednesday — if former President Donald Trump was in office, Brittney Griner would be out of the Russian jail she’s been held in for months.
While Dan is aware that Griner is alleged to have committed a crime in Russia, he said those who are making comments about the WNBA star online are “inhumane.”
BRITTNEY GRINER STILL HELD IN RUSSIAN PRISON? DAN DAKICH RESPONDS
“Now, look, I get it. You break the law. You break the law,” Dan said. “But four months seems like a pretty hefty sentence to me for what she did. It’s time to get her out. I mean, it just is. It’s time that we don’t have a week *ss President, it’s time that we don’t have a weak country. It’s time that we are a little bit respected, a little bit feared, and we only get her out. Not saying we use force. I’m not saying we bomb places, but however you do it diplomatically …”
Prosecutors in Russia were granted another extension Tuesday in the case of the American women’s basketball player, which many outlets report is a procedural move that was expected and should have little effect on negotiations for her release, according to several experts.
“Now, look, there’s no guarantee she gets out there. None. But I got to tell you, the idea from you folks out there that say, well, she didn’t stand for the anthem, but she’s getting what she deserves is absolutely asinine,” Dan said. “I mean, it is absolutely incredibly asinine. I mean, this is a human being, whether you agree with their politics or not. And again, I don’t even know that she did it because I’m going to sit here trusting Russia. I’m not. You’re not. We aren’t in other areas. Now, all of a sudden we trust Russia when it comes to this? And yes, when she got arrested, I did say, ‘how dumb are you?'”
Here’s everything Dan had to say:

I agree…she may be an idiot but she’s not their idiot to harass.
She sure af is if she is in Russia and they decide they want some political prisoners to hold because the country she originates from technically declared war on them. Lmfaooo I love when Americans are like HEY AUTHORITARIAN AF RUSSIA SHOULD BEHAVE JUST LIKE US IN TIMES OF WAR! Yeahhhh that’s not how this shit works home skillet. War is war and everyone is fair game in a country like Russia once they declare you an active combatant. Any means necessary Brittany Griner was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Perfectly said. Fuck Griner, anti American, White hating bigot.
Look on the bright side. She does not have to hear the United States National Anthem.
You go get the America hating dope smoking c**t out I say gulag bitches
Notice what I had to do to insert that C word above OutKick is now censoring posts folks just sayin
News flash….NOBODY GIVES A FUCK DAN! lmfao she’s a political prisoner now wtf did people think would happen as high profile American citizens in Russia when we essentially declare war against them. Do people not remember how the soviet union behaved in all of the other wars involving us??? You all should just be happy she is still alive tbh.
Lol there is only one way Brittany Griner is coming “home” and that’s if Biden and the rest of the rere gang of NeoCons finally leaves Ukraine. I can guarantee you that is the only thing Putin will find acceptable in order to release her.
