Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is joining in on the viral “Let’s go Brandon” trend that is anti-President Joe Biden.
A video showing Cruz saying, “Let’s go Brandon,” was reposted by the Texas senator. Cruz added in the repost a shoulder-shrugging emoji.

The trend began when an NBC reporter misheard an anti-Biden chant, “F**** Joe Biden.” She thought the crowd was cheering for NASCAR race winner Brandon Brown, as IJR reported on.
“As you can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go Brandon!'” she said. However, those were not the words the crowd was shouting.
The video went viral, and the chant has since became a huge trend among conservatives.
