    This one had to be explained to me. How do these things get started?

    I just asked DH about it, and he knew all about it being the .trumpster that he is.

    Apparently it is code for “F U Biden”.

    It started at a sporting event where the crowd was apparently shouting. “ F U Biden” and a news reporter heard “Let’s go Brandon” and that is what he reported.

    As I understand it, it's recently become popular at various sporting events (initially starting at college football games I believe) for the crowd to chant "F*** Joe Biden" over and over. When a recent NASCAR crowd did the same last week at the same time that an NBC reporter was interviewing a driver named Brandon, the reporter announced on air that they were chanting "Let's go Brandon" when obviously they were not.

    I find it interesting hearing where these things come from.

    Iíve heard a lot of explanations for ďokayĒ, for instance. My favorite is that it came from Martin Van Burenís nickname, and got picked up by telegraph operators as a useful abbreviation. But I also heard it attributed to copy editors and a similar sounding Choctaw word.
