Biden parrots ‘Let’s go, Brandon’ back to caller during TV appearance

In recent months, the expression “Let’s go, Brandon!” has become a rallying cry for opponents of President Joe Biden, who have used it at concerts, sporting events, churches, and even on Capitol Hill as a more family-friendly way to share how they really feel about the man in the White House.

That’s why many Americans were left shocked — and shaking their heads — after a viral clip of Biden showed unwittingly using the words himself.   

According to Fox News, the incident happened while Biden was participating in a televised call-in event on Christmas Eve with personnel from the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).

Clueless Biden: “Let’s go, Brandon!”

Though NORAD has been tasked with providing logistical support to Santa Claus for over six decades, it became apparent that one caller wasn’t focused on the mission.

Instead, an Oregon man, identified only as “Jared,” concluded his family’s call by telling the president “Let’s go, Brandon” and hanging up. For his part, Biden appeared to be unaware of the phrase’s significance, replying, “Let’s go, Brandon, I agree.”

The incident came just over a week after Biden was confronted by Trump flags and chants of “Let’s go, Brandon” while viewing tornado damage.

In a tweet she put out on Dec. 15, BBC News correspondent Tara McKelvey described watching the awkward scene unfold in Mayfield, Kentucky. “I’m with the president in Mayfield. Looking at destruction. There is a Trump flag and when Biden got out of the motorcade someone called: ‘Let’s go, Brandon.’ They said it twice,” McKelvey wrote.

From stadiums to the House floor

Fox News explained that the “Let’s go, Brandon” phenomenon had its genesis at a NASCAR Xfinity Series race held in October at Alabama’s Talladega Superspeedway.

When many of those in attendance began chanting  “F*** Joe Biden,” an NBC reporter falsely claimed that fans were chanting “Let’s go, Brandon,” in honor of victorious NASCAR driver Brandon Brown.

Since then, the reporter’s words have gone from being chanted in stadiums to appearing on merchandise and even being taken up by elected officials.

On Oct. 21, Florida Republican Bill Posey used the phrase after speaking from the House floor about attempts by Democrats “to rush through a radical agenda before the midterms.”
