Tomi Lahren, the conservative media commentator has been tough on WNBA star Brittney Griner on twitter after she got sentenced to nine years in Russian prison this week after Russian officials found THC oil in a gym bag.
They found cannabis oil
After Brittney Griner gave a heartfelt plea in court she was sentenced to nine years in prison after she pleaded guilty to drug possession in July. She was initially detained in February of this year when she entered the country and the airport officials found an electronic vaporizer pen with less than one gram of cannabis oil.
Joe Biden demanded her release
Right after Russian authorities gave out her sentence, President Joe Biden publicly made a statement demanding her release immediately. The WNBA league was also displeased with the court’s ruling since it was said to be very severe.
This is what no justice looks like
And as soon as the news of Griner’s sentence was known, Tomi Lahren tweeted that her situation was a “cautionary tale” while saying that if Griner thought that the United States of America was “oppressive” she’s now finding out what “No justice looks like”, while also using sarcasm as a grinding tool she also mentioned it was “too bad too sad”.
9 years without a hearing the National Anthem
And if that was not enough, Lahren continued sharing her opinion about the matter by saying that that least the basketball star “won’t have to endure our National Anthem for 9 whole years!”, and she doubled down by saying that this was a win for Griner.
It’s not over yet for Griner
The Griner case is still ongoing since it has become a political affair between two of the most powerful countries in the world who have very opposing views on drug policies and law enforcement, while the US has legalized Cannabis in many states, Russia has made stronger laws against those who consume cannabis or any other psychoactive substances.
