“It was a joke.” When we hear that, we know we are looking at a sad excuse for ugly words, not a joke. When the last guy who lived in our White House was in office, he said that phrase a lot. And it was never funny. Now, look at who imitated him.
The dreadful message saga all started on Christmas Eve. President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden updated us about NORAD tracking Santa’s progress. They took several calls from young people in the military families, when all of a sudden what did they hear, but one of those ugly phrases “Let’s Go, Brandon.” Oooh. That was so not nice. Did that guy find a chunk of coal in his stocking?
The guy who called in that comment, Jared Schmeck, is an electrician living in Oregon. He said, according to The Tennessee Holler:
‘[I meant] no disrespect. [It was] joke. [And Schmeck was being] attacked for utilizing [his] freedom of speech. I understand there is a vulgar meaning to “Let’s go, Brandon,” but I’m not that simple-minded, no matter how I feel about him, It was merely just an innocent jest to also express my God-given right to express my frustrations in a joking manner.’
Take a look at how it all went down in this AP video:
