“The hypocrisy is egregious in this country”: Joe Rogan Goes Ballistic Against VP Kamala Harris For Her ‘Fake Concern’ Over Brittney Griner’s Russian Imprisonment, Says She Herself Put Thousands Of Americans In Jail
A professional basketball player for the Phoenix Mercury of the WNBA, Brittney Griner. She was named AP player of the year and The Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four in 2012. In addition, Brittney Griner holds two Olympic gold medals in her professional career. Because she had entered a Moscow airport with vape cartridges containing cannabis-derived oils, the American athlete was detained in Russia in February. With a lot of major roles in the White House and other celebrities attempting to come to some sort of deal to let the athlete come back to America, Joe Rogan points out how ridiculous the situation is on his podcast with guest comedian, Andrew Schulz.
Brittney Griner imprisoned in Russia for carrying drugs
WNBA star, Brittney Griner, may be used as a “high-profile hostage” by Russia, according to some experts. On July 1st, 2022, her trial in Russia commenced. Brittney Griner has acknowledged that it was a genuine error on her part to have packed the cannabis oil cartridges without paying heed to it. Her attorneys have produced the prescription for the cannabis oil she was given to relieve her discomfort. On August 4th, 2022, once the trial was over, she was given a 9-year prison term. A prisoner exchange between the USA and Russia is conceivable. According to recent reports, US President Joe Biden has pledged that his team is making every effort to repatriate Brittney Griner.
Joe Rogan calls out Kamala Harris for fake concern
The host of The Joe Rogan Experience was recording a podcast with comedian Andrew Schulz. When the topic of Kamala Harris and Brittney Griner came up, he stated
“That’s why the hypocrisy about the Brittney Griner situation was so egregious in this country.”“Where Kamala Harris is talking about how horrible it is that Brittney Griner is in jail. Well, you put people in jail. You did. Thousands of people in jail for marijuana. Yeah, it’s crazy.”
Joe Rogan continued. This was obviously referencing the fact of how many people are currently serving a sentence in prisons due to the possession of marijuana when it was still an illegal drug to keep on a person without a proper prescription.
Joe Rogan went on to further bash Kamala Harris and the promises she had made.
“How come you guys didn’t exonerate people that were in jail for marijuana when you said you were going to? They said that they were going to make marijuana federally legal. They said they were going to exonerate prisoners who were in jail for non-violent drug offenses. This is what they said. None of that has happened.”
Clearly, Joe Rogan has nothing against the WNBA star, Brittney Griner, the host is just shining a light on a much larger concern that can finally be in the spotlight after having one celebrity go through the same injustice as thousands of others are still facing today.
