The parent uses the right-wing slur during a Biden call with the NORAD Santa tracker

The slogan "Let's Go Brandon" is popular in the right wing. ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !


President Joe Biden was attacked by a food donor against Biden during a pre-Christmas call with Norad's Santa tracker.

Biden and his first wife were talking to families across the country who called the North American Aerospace Defense Command to receive a review of Santa's location when one parent concluded the conversation by saying: "Let's go Brandon."

The president did not seem to notice that the word was used in the right wing as the slogan "f --- Joe Biden," and replied: "Let's go Brandon, I agree."

The slogan came from ordinary circles after NASCAR driver Brandon Brown interviewed NBC Sports reporter Kelli Stavast about his victory at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama in Oct. 2. The crowd that followed the interview began to sing harsh words directed at Biden, but Stavast responded: "You can hear the songs from the crowd, 'Let's go Brandon!'"

Since then, the euphemism of "Let's go Brandon" has been repeated by many prominent people on the right and members of the Republican Congress have even shouted it from the floor of the House. When the president leaves, he is often greeted by protesters with placards reading "Let's go Brandon". During a campaign rally for Terry McAuliffe, a candidate for the Virginia Democratic presidency earlier this fall, protesters disrupted the president's speech with "Let's Go Brandon" songs.

Jill Biden spokesman Michael LaRosa called the use of the slur just before Christmas "illness, tastelessness, lack of class, disrespect, youth, and horrible behavior on the part of the parent (any senior commander)," in a statement posted on Twitter weekly.

"However, no Democrat is scared," LaRosa said. "Thank you @POTUS and @FLOTUS w / dignity and class who set an example for our children (and parents)."

Asked in early November what Biden had done to the popularity of the phrase, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said: "I don't think he spends too much time focusing on it or thinking about it."

NORAD has told children it has been tracking Santa for more than 60 years, providing families with a website to track Santa as he travels and distributes gifts around the world and opens a call center on Christmas Eve so families can inquire about Santa's location.

Presidents and first women often participate in NORAD Santa tracker calls.

NORAD said it did not pre-select callers in advance, but preferred children who called the NORAD Tracks Santa phone number.
