The liberal media has finally discovered the chant ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ and they are not happy about it.
For four solid years, people on the left said every vile thing they could think of about Trump and the media had no problem with it, but now they find ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ offensive because it means F Joe Biden.
It’s just stunning to witness such rank hypocrisy.
This is from the Associated Press:
How ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ became code for insulting Joe Biden
When Republican Rep. Bill Posey of Florida ended an Oct. 21 House floor speech with a fist pump and the phrase “Let’s go, Brandon!” it may have seemed cryptic and weird to many who were listening. But the phrase was already growing in right-wing circles, and now the seemingly upbeat sentiment — actually a stand-in for swearing at Joe Biden — is everywhere.
South Carolina Republican Jeff Duncan wore a “Let’s Go Brandon” face mask at the Capitol last week. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz posed with a “Let’s Go Brandon” sign at the World Series. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s press secretary retweeted a photo of the phrase on a construction sign in Virginia.
The line has become conservative code for something far more vulgar: “F—- Joe Biden.” It’s all the rage among Republicans wanting to prove their conservative credentials, a not-so-secret handshake that signals they’re in sync with the party’s base.
Americans are accustomed to their leaders being publicly jeered, and former President Donald Trump’s often-coarse language seemed to expand the boundaries of what counts as normal political speech.
This weekend, a pilot for Southwestern used the phrase on the plane intercom before takeoff and this has some journalists really angry.
On a Southwest flight from Houston to Albuquerque, the pilot signed off over the public address system with the phrase “Let’s go, Brandon” (GOP code for “Fuck Joe Biden”) to audible gasps from some passengers.

Vulgarity stand-in from @SouthwestAir cockpit: “On Friday morning on a Southwest flight from Houston to Albuquerque, the pilot signed off his greeting over the public address system with the phrase, to audible gasps from some passengers.” https://t.co/fYgDsCFGcT

If @SouthwestAir doesn’t do anything, every passenger on that flight has standing to file a complaint with the @FAANews and they should do so. Southwest will then be compelled to investigate or defend him. Have fun with that. No messing around in the air. Bright line rule. https://t.co/L7VlZWJ0SU

TFW you’re trying to go on vacation and then the pilot says the very thing you’re working on over the loud speaker and you have to try to get him comment but then almost get removed from plane. https://t.co/xZI5FtLzJB

They’re actually offended by this.
Did these people sleep through the entire Trump presidency?
