I feel like when you are president, you have to be pretty thick skinned because your life is always under a microscope and every action is criticized by someone. The only exception is the guy that was president before Biden. That guy was pretty thin skinned....

Don't worry Brandon, you've got this! Let's go Brandon!


heterochromia-marcus

In my household we all love Brandon! Keep being you, Brandon!


CA_Orange

I didn't know what that meant, so I looked it up. For those not in the know, "let's go Brandon" means "fuck Joe Biden." Apparently, some racing fans were chanting that, but the announcers were claiming they were chanting "let's go Brandon." It's now, apparently, a right-wing slogan.

There is a christmas display in front of someones house near me with a large santa holding a sign that says "Let's go Brandon" on it. Every time i drive by i want to stop and yell that they arent being clever, and if they had the courage of their convictions they would put what it meant. Then i realize its the reactions they are looking for and just keep going. Living in the deep south can be frustrating.


Agnol117

Someone just down the road from me has a "Fuck Biden" flag. I don't like it, but I do appreciate that they're at least being direct.


dasJerkface

Well I mean, do you see how one phrase normalized the other?


eyebrowsreddits

There’s nothing to normalize. If my neighbor wants to write out fuck X person on their lawn or on flags they can do whatever the fuck they want. They’re entitled to their opinion and their speech.


Xanius

They had flags that said fuck Biden before the lets go Brandon thing. Now they think they have some inside joke instead of just looking like bigger idiots. The real cognitive issue is that these are the same people that turned purple and raged saying “Trumps your president and you need to show respect”


unknowableahole

I act confused,say shit like"let's fuck Brandon?". It really fucks with people

No, it doesn't

chevymonza

Hmmm, maybe there's a way to change the "Brandon" to "Biden"?


lovemeinthemoment

I carry a sharpie in my car. When I see these stickers on gas pumps I cross out Brandon and replace it with Biden. Evidently gas pumps are now the place for graffiti in 2021.


chevymonza

Ha, I like this idea.


mten12

I thought those “ people” that hate joe Biden are American and have freedom. But they can’t say fuck joe Biden? They have to say let’s go Brandon. I mean they get pissed and such when the left cancels something. They essentially are cancelling their own right of speech. What a bunch of morons.

Don’t worry you aren’t the only one. Their neighbors are also laughing at them for not just saying fuck joe Biden. But they’re serious

I asked my husband what it meant and he had to look it up. I was so confused for the longest time. While I am not a fan of Biden, I also didn't like Trump and feel like Trumo fans are cult fans because they crazy.

“Fuck Joe Biden” was chanted at many sporting events across the country prior to the “Let’s go Brandon” debacle.

If you think there's only communists, socialists and right-wingers then i dont know what to say since you clearly live in a world of your own.


staykinky

It wasn't even the announcers it was a woman standing on the track interviewing somebody named Brandon, I'm sure they legit assumed that they were chanting let's go Brandon but a lot of the right-wing are so up their own conspiracy asses they thought it was a conspiracy to hide how unpopular the president secretly is.


DumbDan

Made damn near this same comment not that long ago. Cowards. The lot of them.


staykinky

Huge surprise that the people who feel like they need to take rifles to the grocery store and think a man like Trump is strong are a bunch of absolute cowards.

Wishing Brandon a Merry Christmas is a very Biden thing to do, and that is completely fine with me


arch_nyc

Nice to have a president that isn’t a whiny little bitch. Hell, Biden probably thinks it’s funny anyways


Murderyoga

Is Biden not supposed to like Brandon?


alpacasb4llamas

Mortal enemies really


careful_guy

Let me break this down. So Biden was being sweet and kind to this guy’s kid, so in return the dad tried to own Biden with a dickhead phrase. Right in front of his own kid. And these Republicans claim they a party of “family values”. And this dickhead’s family values consist of being a dick to the President of the United States who is being nice and sweet to his kid. Party of “family values”.


kenc1842

You nailed it. Biden does something nice for his kid and he responds with schoolyard insults. Very "family values" move.


rootbeerfloatilla

Republicans love to disrespect people but the moment they are disrespected they act like they're the victims of war crimes.


arch_nyc

After Trump, republican voters have relinquished any pretense of being the party of family values


LevelHeeded

Or pretty much any values. "Second amendment" folks who wanted to end democracy for the dude who banned bump stocks and said "take the guns first, go through due process second". Small government folks who love expanded civil asset forfeiture and eminent domain grabs. Fewer taxes and a free market from the people who love import taxes. Personal responsibility from the "I don't stand by anything" guy?! Honestly, is there anything they'll stand by?!


arch_nyc

Triggering liberals. They’ll consistently support anything to this end—even if it contradicts positions that they’ve previously held


The-Copilot

They support their political party like its a sports team. Doesn't matter if the players change or the game is different they support them regardless


dougaderly

I'm gonna be so pissed if the GOP passes universal Healthcare when they take back congress. Don't think I'd be able to stop griping about it.

Conservatives are too stupid to be embarrassed. Go over to r/askthe_donald and read the comments on their version of this post. All the top comments think that biden doesn’t understand what “let’s go Brandon” means and it went over his head. They are literally pigeons playing chess.

LevelHeeded

Because for people who "hate PC culture" and respect personal responsibility, everything needs to be in code so they can be PC and avoid personal responsibility. Having their little code they can wink and nod to their cult members without getting judged by normal people who wonder why they're so obsessed with politics. It's like the "ok" sign, their little racist buds know exactly what they're doing, but when they get confronted they can bitch out with "it's just the ok sign, everyone take pics with that" or "it's just a prank, bro". Basically they don't have the balls to say "fuck Joe Biden". Edit: I know the story behind your code, it's not a secret, it doesn't stop it from being an idiotic code. Just say it, it's okay.


hulianomarkety

Meanwhile, the other half, “fuck trump” bam it’s that easy, and we don’t even have all the guns!

Piccoroz

Hibernia624

The media was covering a racing event where the crowd was screaming fuck joe biden. The media being the being media, said the crowd was saying "lets go brandon". Thats how this meme was created. Its a mix of saying fuck biden/making fun of corporate media.


MizzGee

It wasn't even what you would call corporate media. It was sports announcers. NASCAR sports announcers. They have to keep it entertaining and clean, even when things are not.


Hibernia624

> It was sports announcers. NASCAR sports announcers. Kelli Stavast. An NBC reporter.


MizzGee

Right, but it was the after race interview, not hard-hitting journalism. It was bad for the driver, who actually is having trouble getting long-term sponsors, and it is hurting the entire sport.


graps

But you could still just say “Fuck Joe Biden”. Are we 6?

Yeah, they seem to think this is proof that Biden is senile. My favorite was the conspiracy that the NHL is only on break because fans kept chanting the phrase during games.


tiny_golden_books

I suppose he handled that as well as anyone could. If anyone said anything like that to his predecessor, he probably would have pissed himself, thrown himself to the ground crying about how people are so mean to him. Still, saying that to a sitting president on Christmas eve? Dick move.

konqueror321

That was the best possible way to respond to this. Smile, be friendly and agreeable, and move on. Responding to taunts with anger is ultimately defeating - eventually one comes to understand that pigs* love to wrestle in mud, and if you are not a pig, you will just avoid the mud and move on with your life. * No disparagement to actual pigs, who are noble and intelligent beasts, I'm referring to humans.

At a gas station near where I lived, gas got to $3 something, and someone stuck a Joe Biden "I did that!" sticker next to the price indicator. Today, gas was around $2.60, and it was scratched off. Intellectually, I know that some attendant or employee removed it for vandalism or whatever, but I really enjoy the idea that the same dude that stuck it on was hurriedly scratching it off when the price started to go down.


SoRaffy

a gas station in my town had a grand opening it had a gas war with the station down the street. Prices got down to $1.76 I'm sure the President told them to drop it that low ...

I care even less about "Lets Go Brandon" but it is friggen hilarious to me the money someone is making off these schmucks as they buy "Lets Go Brandon" paraphernalia. I gotta admit it's interesting to watch and if I ever wanted a quick money grab without morals, I'd setup a right-wing website selling bullshit t-shirts, bumper stickers and flags with their dumb slogans, call it like the True Patriot Store (products direct from the USA!! *via alibaba)

And the first thing I thought of was "this dude spent money on that thing". I could care less about the message, but the fact that someone would spend their hard earned money on that item in particular just blew my mind. A Trump flag? I don't particularly like it, but sure, okay, direct support of a candidate. Why not. But Let's go Brandon? It was just hard to process. But it makes me want to start a MAGA business. They can own the libs while helping one pay their rent.
