Here’s How Conservatives Are Sticking It to the Media for Ignoring the ‘F*ck Joe Biden’ Chants

“Let’s go, Brandon,” has become the right’s subversive new rallying cry against the media and President Joe Biden.

SO WHAT

The liberal elites can’t “cancel” a meme.

THE MOMENT

While being interviewed by “Fox & Friends” weekend co-host Will McCain on Thursday, a South Carolina man chanted, “Let’s go Brandon,” a reference to a viral moment at last week’s NASCAR race in Talladega, Alabama.

“I watch Fox News because it’s America. It’s my America. It’s a real station telling the real truth everyday,” the man said. “And by the way, ‘Let’s go Brandon!'”

  • In honor of Fox News’ 25th anniversary, McCain spoke with several patrons of the Carolina Drive In Restaurant in Greenville.

A MEME IS BORN

On Saturday, NBC Sports’ Kelli Stavast mistook the Talladega crowd’s “F*ck Joe Biden!” chant as a cheer for NASCAR driver Brandon Brown, whom she was in the middle of interviewing.

Biden critics interpreted Stavast’s gaffe as yet another instance of the media running interference for the establishment.

A MOVEMENT GROWS

“Let’s go Brandon” has quickly become an in-joke on the right and a way to stick a thumb in the eye of the powers that be.

  • Google searches for the term have skyrocketed in popularity over the past week.
  • During an interview, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas praised footage of Stavast’s interview with Brown, saying “it captures everything about ‘fake news’ all at once.”
  • Scott McKay, a contributor the American Spectator, wrote that the “Let’s Go Brandon” chant is “a seminal moment in American political history.”

SAME ENERGY

The phrase “Epstein didn’t kill himself” went viral on the right in 2019 as an expression of skepticism that disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein took his own life in jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
