During a televised phone call to children on Christmas Eve, US President Joe Biden lost his mind on Friday morning when one of the parents dropped the “Let’s go Brandon” line mocking the president.
Biden wished the kids a Merry Christmas during his annual phone call while he was following a Christmas event with wife Jill. Things went wrong when a family man identified as Jared, Oregon, ended his call by wishing Biden a “wonderful Christmas” and adding, “Let’s go Brandon” .
The US President replied:
“Let’s go Brandon, I agree.”
“Let’s go Brandon. I agree.”
In early October of this year, an American sports journalist mistakenly played the phrase “Fuck Joe Biden”, which some spectators shouted at a sporting event, as “Let’s go Brandon”. The phrase immediately became popular among Biden’s critics, who used it to express their disapproval of the president and mocked him. It has since been used as a slogan, written on protest signs, and even used by some Republicans in speeches in Congress.
A video of the incident has since surfaced on social media. It’s unclear whether Biden understood the meaning of the phrase, but he calmly and approvingly responded by saying, “Let’s go Brandon, I agree,” “Let’s go, Brandon. I agree”. The president then asked the caller if he was from Oregon, but he was already off the line.
Additional footage later surfaced allegedly showing the other side of the call, which features a man talking to Biden on the phone who appears to be struggling to suppress his laughter while saying the now famous sentence directly to the president.
