While visiting the storm damage in Kentucky on Wednesday, President Joe Biden was met with “Let’s go, Brandon” shouts.
Biden was visiting the damage caused by a recent tornado storm that left dozens of people dead and billions of dollars of damage.
As Biden walked by, one video caught bystanders shouting “Let’s go, Brandon” at him.

“The anti-Biden phrase became an internet sensation in October after an NBC reporter at a NASCAR Xfinity Series race incorrectly reported that fans in the stands were chanting ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ following a victory by driver Brandon Brown, when they were really shouting, ‘F–k Joe Biden,’” Fox News reported. “It has since become a wildly popular anti-Biden rallying cry, breaking out at concerts, sporting events and even churches.”
NASCAR President Steve Phelps is triggered over the phrase, threatening to sue people who sell “Let’s Go, Brandon” merchandise with the NASCAR trademarks.
The Associated Press reported:
Phelps … said NASCAR will pursue action against any illegal use of its trademarks on merchandise boasting the slogan. Retired baseball star Lenny Dykstra posted a photo on Twitter this week of a man eating breakfast at a New Jersey hotel wearing a black “Let’s go, Brandon” shirt alongside NASCAR’s trademarked color bars.
“We will pursue whoever (is using logos) and get that stuff,” Phelps said. “That’s not OK. It’s not OK that you’re using our trademarks illegally, regardless of whether we agree with what the position is.”
