Caller tells Biden 'Let's go Brandon' — and the president says it right back

“Let’s go, Brandon” has become a popular anti-Biden insult on the far right. But when a caller used that insult during a Christmas Eve Day broadcast, President Joe Biden was unfazed and said it back to him.

In MAGA World, “Let’s go, Brandon” is code for “Fuck Joe Biden.” The caller told Biden, “I hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas as well. Merry Christmas, and let’s go Brandon.”

The president, with First Lady Jill Biden sitting next to him, responded, “Let’s go Brandon. I agree.”

When Fox News’ David Marcus wondered if Biden knew what that insult meant, journalist Yair Rosenberg tweeted:
