‘Let’s Go Brandon’: Why are Trump supporters using this meme to mock Biden?

Earlier this week, a video from a NASCAR race at Alabama’s Talladega Superspeedway went viral on social media after a reporter claimed the crowd were chanting ‘Let’s go Brandon!’ when they were actually shouting ‘F*** Joe Biden.’

The awkward and quite frankly hilarious moment, occurred when NBC reporter Kelli Stavast was interviewing Brandon Brown following his victory, so you can see how easily this mistake happened.

Yet, the internet being the internet, has latched on to this unfortunate moment and created a meme out of it and as you can probably guess it’s become a favourite of the American right-wing who are using it to mock president Biden.

You’ve only got to search through Twitter or look at the replies to any of Joe Biden’s tweets to see the phrase pop up.

Here are a few examples:

Some people are going to pretty epic lengths for the gag.

Even Ted Cruz couldn’t resist getting involved.

Donald Trump Jr, a man who is a living, breathing meme, inevitably got involved.

How funny you will find this depends on just how mature you are and whether you want to keep company with Trump’s MAGA gang but like all memes, it’ll soon get boring and become a cliche that somehow sticks around far too long.
