What began as an NBC reporter’s attempt to suggest NASCAR fans shouting “[email protected] Joe Biden” were actually saying “Let’s go Brandon!” – has been a viral sensation for a month and a half.
Fans at football stadiums across the country have chanted “[email protected] Joe Biden” to voice their discontent with the president.
The speed at which “Let’s Go Brandon,” a coded vulgar insult towards the president, has spread throughout stadiums and social media has been astonishing.
One can buy “Let’s Go Brandon” t-shirts, Christmas ornaments, stickers, and other merchandise to express how they feel about Biden. Even a “Let’s Go Brandon” rap recently made it to the number 1 rap song on iTunes.
“[email protected] Joe Biden” or “FJB” for short has also made it to the sky. On Nov. 10, a pilot operating a Cessna commuter plane with the tail number “N23508” was recorded by flight-tracking website FlightAware. What’s unique about this plane’s flight route is that the pilot drew FJB and a middle finger.
The pilot was at an altitude of 2,500 to 3,500 feet near Pheonix, flying around 85-100 mph for 37 minutes last week while they created their masterpiece in the sky. Here’s a playback of the flight.
Vulgar insults directed at the president show an ultra-polarized country ahead of next year’s midterms. So how long until the FAA interviews this pilot?
