GOP Lawmaker Ends House Floor Speech With Anti-Biden Catchphrase

Share

A popular euphemism to register displeasure with President Joe Biden has made its way into the halls of Congress.

As Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.) wrapped up a floor speech on Thursday night, he said Americans were “understandably frustrated” with Biden’s proposed $3.5 trillion spending package.

“Actually, they’re very angry. And they’re not going to sit back and take it much longer,” he added.

Finally, Posey said, “Let’s go, Brandon!”

The phrase “let’s go, Brandon,” has been used as a euphemism for “f*ck Joe Biden,” which had been used by spectators of sporting events.

The alternative phrase began to gain momentum after an NBC reporter interviewed NASCAR race winner Brandon Brown. The crowd could be heard chanting, “F*ck Joe Biden.”

However, the reporter said, “As you can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go Brandon!”

Since then videos have surfaced online of spectators and elected officials using the phrase:

The incident in the interview with Brown was also remixed and made into the “Let’s Go Brandon Theme Song.”

As The Washington Examiner noted, “The song topped Apple Music’s hip-hop/rap chart at No. 1 and came in at No. 2 on the Apple Music top songs list across all genres on Wednesday. It was only beat by Adele’s ‘Easy on Me.'”

The use of the phrase has gained popularitiy as Biden’s approval rating has declined. FiveThirtyEight’s average of polls finds that 50.0% of Americans do not approve of his job performance while 43.7% approve.

The outlet’s Geoffrey Skelley explained, “Biden has lost support among Americans of all stripes — men and women, Black voters and white voters, Zoomers and Baby Boomers. Even Democrats writ large are more disenchanted. But two groups with whom Biden has lost support stand out: independents and Hispanics.”

“Independents have soured on Biden to the extent that his approval ratings among this group approach the strongly negative ratings they gave then-President Donald Trump at the same point in his presidency, while increased disapproval of Biden among Hispanics could signal they are moving further away from Democrats after they shifted somewhat toward Trump and the GOP last November,” he added.
