QUOTE OF THE DAY: Saying ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Is Like Burning the Flag

State Rep. Gloria Johnson, a Tennessee Democrat, said Monday that chanting the anti-Biden rallying cry, “Let’s go Brandon,” is akin to burning the American flag.


“As a friend said, I think it should be equated with burning the flag, in essence, that’s what they are doing,” Johnson tweeted in response to a Twitter user who likened saying “Let’s go Brandon” to “chanting ‘overrated!’ at a team even after they kicked your ass.”

In a subsequent tweet, Johnson clarified that her position was a personal opinion, “not a legal take.”

  • Both burning the flag and saying “Let’s go Brandon” are “protected speech,” Johnson acknowledged.


“Let’s go Brandon” has become an inside joke on the right inspired by a NASCAR broadcast in October.

NBC Sports’ Kelli Stavast was on the track interviewing driver Brandon Brown at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama when the crowd erupted in a “F*ck Joe Biden” cheer.
