The Phoenix Mercury star and her wife accompanied CBS News to the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. The Griners were seated with "CBS Mornings" co-host Gayle King, "CBS Evening News" anchor Norah O’Donnell and "Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan.

The Biden administration worked to free Griner from a Russian penal colony on Dec. 8 by way of a prisoner exchange with Russia for arms dealer Viktor Bout. CBS News, who is hosted Griner in Washington, was first to report the swap.

  1. Really? Honored for what? I just want to know… he just praised someone who did nothing but going against another country’s law, someone who would use drugs. So what is she honored for?

  2. Honoring gay what? Next usa 🇺🇸 president president Donald Trump real president

  3. So we can be honored for breaking another country’s laws. But because that country is our adversary it’s ok. And we trade a war lord for a basketball player and give her praise and awards. Makes sense 🤔

  4. We gave away a dealer of destruction of global magnitude for Ms Griner. While I am glad to see freedom given, some humility for the one sided deal for the other side would be refreshing. Maybe thank you America, maybe it’s not so bad living here? it’s ok at least?

  5. So… who is this guy?
    And the WNBA is still a thing? I thought they went bankrupt,
    Is this guy a coach or something.?

  6. Maga tears make me 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
