Recent polls have shown that President Joe Biden is experiencing a sharp drop in popularity, with a Quinnipiac University survey published last week giving him an approval rating of an embarrassing 38%.
However, Biden’s difficulties aren’t simply showing up in the latest polling data. A growing number of Americans have found a very loud and public way to voice their displeasure with the president, using the phrase “Let’s go Brandon” as code for what they’re really thinking.
According to Breitbart, attendees at sporting events across the country have begun chanting the phrase “F*** Joe Biden,” with the latest example seen at a football game over the weekend between the University of Mississippi and the University of Arkansas.

Breitbart noted that others have begun using the more innocuous-sounding phrase, “Let’s Go Brandon.” That trend started when CBS Sports reporter Kelli Stavast claimed fans at a NASCAR race were saying that seemingly harmless phrase instead of “F*** Joe Biden,” which is what they were actually chanting.
Supporters of former President Donald Trump were heard using the “Brandon” at a rally he held in Iowa on Saturday, with at least one person sporting the hilarious new phrase on a hat.
Meanwhile, an airplane was observed pulling a “Let’s Go Brandon” banner that also promoted the alternative social media platform GETTR. Another plane promoted the slogan that same day over Auburn, Alabama.
Fox News reported that “Let’s Go Brandon” has begun to regularly appear in memes and was used by anti-Biden protestors when the president visited Michigan earlier this month.
Biden sees his worst jobs report of the year
The chant’s popularity appears to be another example of what Fox News guest host Raymond Arroyo recently called “the collapsing presidency of Joe Biden.”
“Biden’s free fall,” Arroyo said as he filled in for host Laura Ingraham on Friday. “If this week revealed anything, it is the catastrophic troubles the Biden administration has caused for itself and the country.”
“The Biden policies, no matter how well intended, are leading to ruinous ends for the American people,” Arroyo continued. “His vaccine mandates coupled with the bloated welfare state that he means to grow even more are wiping out jobs.”
As evidence of this, the host pointed to last week’s monthly jobs report from the Department of Labor that revealed only 194,000 jobs were added in September, far short of the half-million jobs that had been predicted. “If that’s progress, I hate to see what failure looks like,” Arroyo quipped. “They’re the worst job numbers of the year.”
