‘When you look at the Brandon administration’
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, becoming more and more of a player in national politics, has slapped a new nickname on the White House run by Joe Biden.
“The Brandon administration.”
And the crowd at an election integrity news conference on Wednesday erupted in cheers.
“If you look at all the things that are going on, you see Big Tech, you see the corporate media — although they weren’t too happy with Virginia last night. If you look at that. If you look at what’s going on with some of the big corporations with their woke agenda,” he said.
It was just hours earlier that Glenn Youngkin, a Republican, had been declared the next governor of Virginia, beating longtime Washington insider Democrat Terry McAuliffe.
“When you look at the Biden — when you look at the Brandon administration,” DeSantis said.
The energized crowd erupted, cheering for a long period before the “Let’s go Brandon” chant started.
Eventually someone whistled the crowd to give the podium back to DeSantis.
Fox explained, “The meme of ‘Let’s go, Brandon’ took the country by storm after an NBC reporter mistakenly used the phrase to describe a NASCAR crowd that was chanting ‘F— Joe Biden.’ Since then, the phrase has become a popular way of playfully expressing displeasure with the Biden administration.”
The theme has spawned T-shirts, coffee mugs and a chart-topping rap song.
