All about Let’s Go Brandon Meme
In the past few months, you might have come across many people wearing caps and T-shirts saying “Let’s Go Brandon”. You’ve probably seen it all over Facebook and social media too.
On seeing it, the very first impression is created in your mind is regarding its reference to a person called Brandon. But who is this Brandon, and why are they trending?
It is referring to the inability of Joe Biden, the 46th US President in managing North America’s legislative and administrative agendas and is more to do with his critics and the Republican Politicians.
Where and when did it start?
The logical foundation to “Let’s go Brandon Meme” started in September 2021 when some critics of the current president chanted “F$%k Joe Biden” at a sporting event and it soon turned into a regular political slogan to chant at various events.
On October 2nd, 2021, during an interview with NASCAR Xfinity Sparks 300 Race Winner Brandon Brown, it captured the media’s attention as the NBC Reporter Kelli Stavast misinterpreted the chant as “Let’s Go Brandon”, which sparked the actual beginning of the meme, thereafter.
It is unclear whether Kelli purposefully tried to change the message or might have misheard it from the crowd.
What is the Let’s Go Brandon song?
Now the phrase has spread to the music world, where a lot of pop singers are seen using the meme phrase to offer some hit numbers that are fetching high on the record charts.

He wore the said mask and published a picture of him wearing it on Facebook, saying “The American Citizens are Furious”, referring to the current mindset of the American populace unhappy with the way Biden was handling the Administration of the U.S,A
