Why is everyone saying “Let’s go Brandon” and how did it start?
For the last year, at least, people have been proclaiming “Let’s go Brandon” but there are still quite a few people who don’t know what it means or how it started.
We’ve got those answers for you.
What does the phrase “Let’s go Brandon” even mean?
The phrase has become an anthem for people who are anti-President Joe Biden. You’ll often see the phrase on TVs, political signs, and other various places as a way to protest against the current administration.
It’s really a code for “f**k Joe Biden” which, I know, seems like a stretch. Who is Brandon, and why are we rooting for him.
Where did “Let’s go Brandon” start?
People have been chanting “F**k Joe Biden” at sporting events from pretty much the start of his Presidency but it wasn’t transformed into “Let’s Go Brandon” until Oct. 2, 2021.
It started when NBC reporter Kelli Stavast was interviewing a racecar driver at the 2021 Sparks 300 at Talladega Superspeedway. She heard the NSFW chants and thought they were saying “Let’s Go Brandon” since she was interviewing driver Brandon Brown.
And that’s how the chant was born.
