Micah Parsons must have received the text like all of us this morning that the United States swapped prisoners with Russia. The problem is the United States left a prisoner behind. Not just any prisoner a Marine Paul Whelan who is closing in on his fourth year in Russian custody. That triggered Cowboys pass rusher Micah Parsons, and he posted this tweet that is getting a lot of social media love.

Parsons quickly followed up with this tweet.

Parsons apologized but I don’t think he needed too. He said “Just spoke to some people that I respect and trust. 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. Also if what I’m told about the attempts to bring Ret Marine Paul Whelan home are true then the best outcome was accomplished. I pray Mr. Whelan comes home but am extremely happy for Brittney and her family. I am not too prideful to admit when I’ve made a mistake.”
