Russia traded a low rated athlete (with a patriot problem) for an arms dealer that cares less who is injured with what he sells. The current clown administration is patting itself on the back for the trade, and Russia is laughing.
To put it in perspective: Russia needs money, and now they have one of the most successful arms dealers at their beck and call. They get to sell arms, and if he gets out of line, they quietly take care of their problem forever.
The United States gets an athlete that not only despises her country, she is vocal about her displeasure. She has no use to anyone, except the media, which will pay the big bucks to sell her story. That, and the publishing houses that will clamor for her to sign a book deal.
There are patriots in jail in Russia, that will remain for now. They are of no importance to the current group of traitors in the capitol, since they're working to destroy the United States. May they suffer tremendously for their actions, and may they televise their misery.
