Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis plans to take a jab at President Joe Biden over vaccine mandates by signing the state’s anti-mandate legislation in the city of Brandon, a name that has come to symbolize opposition to the president.
Biden critics have adopted the phrase “Let’s go Brandon” to register their displeasure with the president. The chant is a euphemism for “F*** Joe Biden” and originated from an NBC reporter who misheard the expletive-laden chant during an on-air NASCAR interview with driver Brandon Brown.
“You can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go, Brandon!’” reporter Kelli Stavast said during the Oct. 2 interview.
DeSantis will appear in Brandon to sign into law a bill passed by the Florida Legislature
