Supporters of former President Trump and Americans dissatisfied with Joe Biden have turned the chant “Let’s Go Brandon!” into a massive social media viral trend that has surfaced at sporting events, airports, memes, all the way to the former president’s Saturday convention in Iowa.
It started as a profane anti-Biden song at football games in college, but went to a new level last Saturday when NBC reporter Kelli Stavast interviewed NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Brandon Brown after capturing his first victory at Alabama’s Talladega Superspeedway.
During the interview, Trump supporters and Biden critics took a page out of the book by other sports fans across the country at fairs “F *** Joe Biden,” which could be clearly heard on NBC’s cameras.
Stavast, in an apparent attempt to steer the interview away from politics, reported that the crowd really sang, “Let’s go Brandon!”
At that moment, the new viral sensation was born.
Memes, jokes and comments immediately began to spread across the internet posted by Trump supporters mocking NBC’s coverage during the interview.
At an airport in Chicago, a man tricked an airline worker into saying the phrase “Let’s Go Brandon!” through the paging system.
President Joe Biden could not escape the chant on a visit to Michigan next week and was met by protesters on the side of the road and sing the viral message.
And “Let’s Go Brandon!” billboard was even discovered where President Biden ate an ice cream cone.
Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., has fun with President Biden several times using the phrase “Let’s Go Brandon!” including in a Twitter post of a video in which protesters outside the New York State Department of Education sang “F *** Joe Biden.”
“Let’s go Brandon!” Trump Jr. tweeted.
On Saturday, #LetsGoBrandon trends on Twitter, and a plane was spotted over a planned Trump rally in Iowa behind a “Let’s Go Brandon!” banner.
Trump is set to speak with his supporters in Iowa on Saturday night, where many expect “Let’s Go Brandon!” crazy to continue.
