The phrase became an internet sensation last month 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!”
的 “F–k Joe Biden!” chants at sports venues across the country have now been 取代 with the significantly cleaner “Let’s Go Brandon” chants. 然而, the chant’s popularity has infuriated the left, resulting in an onslaught of angry tweets, columns and hot takes from liberal pundits. “Let’s Go Brandon” has been labeled “庸俗,” “矾” and has even been compared to declaring “Long live ISIS.”
The outrage from the left over the PG, anti-Biden phrase has caught conservatives by surprise after liberals spent five years using actual profanity to criticize Biden’s predecessor. Here are some memorable moments that showcase liberal hypocrisy surrounding the “Let’s Go Brandon” 现象:
Madonna gave profanity-laced speech, said she thinks about ‘blowing up’ White House
Shortly after Trump’s 2017 就职典礼, pop music icon Madonna told the crowd at the Women’s March in Washington that she thought about destroying the president’s home.
“I am angry, yes I am outraged. 是, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” Madonna said, before adding that she knows this “won’t change anything.”
后来, Madonna urged the crowd to chant “we chose love” and predicted that “好” would eventually prevail.
“It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort, that justice would prevail and that good would win in the end,” 她说. “好, good did not win this election. But good will win in the end.”

Macklemore led crowd chanting ‘F–唐纳德·特朗普’ at Arizona concert
Rap star Macklemore made it clear how he felt about then-President Trump during an Arizona concert in October 2017. He led the crowd in a “F–唐纳德·特朗普!” chant at the Marquee Theatre in Phoenix, a venue able to seat 2,500 人.
“We should be welcoming and encouraging everyone to live the American Dream,” Macklemore told his fans.
A concertgoer told Fox News that almost the entire crowd, packed with twentysomethings and college students, “was holding up their [中间] fingers with Macklemore unanimously.”
The song Macklemore performed when the chant broke out — “FDT (F–k Donald Trump Part 2)” — was released in summer 2016 by YG and features G-Eazy and Macklemore. The song’s music video included footage of anti-Trump rallies and boasted lines such as, “How’d he make it this far? How the f–k did it begin? A Trump rally sounds like Hitler and Berlin.”
New York Times published ‘fantasy’ about Secret Service helping Russian assassin gun down Trump
纽约时报 came under fire in 2018 for a fictional account of Trump being gunned down by a Russian assassin with a Glock belonging to his own Secret Service in a short story dubbed “assassination fantasy” by critics.
A short story titled, “How it Ends,” by Zoe Sharp – was a chilling tale about a drunken Russian’s plot to murder the president with a Makarov pistol. Sharp’s particular story didn’t mention Trump by name, but it was no secret as the collection of stories was headlined, “Five novelists imagine Trump’s next chapter.”
“The Russian waited until they were a few steps past before he drew the gun. He sighted on the center of the president’s back, and squeezed the trigger,” Sharp wrote. “The Makarov misfired.”
Then comes the twist in Sharp’s fantasy, as the failed assassination attempt resulted in the disappointed Russian would-be-killer tasting failure and waiting for the Secret Service to intervene.
“He closed his eyes and waited to pay the cost. It did not come. He opened his eyes. The Secret Service agent stood before him, presenting his Glock, butt first,” Sharp wrote. “’Here,’ the agent said politely. ‘Use mine…’”
当时, the Times defended the story as a “work of fiction” that was as part of a package penned by a range of spy and crime novelists.
