Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons offered some criticism for President Joe Biden’s decision to exchange WNBA star Brittney Griner for convicted arms dealer Viktor Bout–better known by his moniker “The Merchant of Death.”
Shortly after President Biden tweeted about the exchange earlier this morning, Parsons offered a single sentence response to the news:
“We still not voting for you!”
Parsons also showed particular outrage after finding out that tetired Marine Paul Whelan would remain in Russian custody, even as the basketball star was released.
After Parsons’ comments went viral, the Cowboys linebacker offered an apology.
“Just spoke to some people that I respect and trust,” Parsons tweeted. “I should have been more educated on the topic and not tweeted out of emotion for my family and other who have served. For that I apologize.”
