“Let’s go Brandon” is a code phrase conservatives have adopted that means “Fuck Joe Biden.”
“Let’s go Brandon” started at a NASCAR race held in Alabama on Oct. 2.
Brandon Brown, a 28-year-old driver who races for a team owned and operated by his family, won his first NASCAR event. While getting interviewed after the race, a crowd formed in the stands behind him and started chanting “Fuck Joe Biden.”
Mishearing the crowd — or, if you believe the conservative conspiratorial origins, intentionally trying to cover up the message — NBC reporter Kelli Stavast said during the interview, “You can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go, Brandon!’”
