By now you’ve probably seen memes or comments with the phrase “Let’s Go Brandon”. But who’s Brandon? And what’s the significance of this whole “Go Brandon” thing we’ve been seeing?
It all began when a crowd chanted “fuck Joe Biden”. The reporter tried to play it off as “let’s go Brandon”, as the person she was interviewing was named Brandon.
The media has been under criticism for this behavior of ignoring negative crowd chants of Biden. Similarly, the press has been under similar attack for lowering crowd noise in broadcasts at stadiums or events where Biden is jeered. So instead of swearing on news networks, where they would definitely be censored, people say “Let’s Go Brandon”.
The entire situation is a meme at this point. It’s used by average people and politicians on social media, television, and even printed on merchandise.
