Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) wore a “Let’s Go Brandon” mask on the House floor Monday.
“Let’s Go Brandon” has become a viral anti-President Joe Biden saying following a recent NASCAR race, where an NBC reporter claimed fans were cheering on the race winner, Brandon Brown, when they were actually chanting “F*** Joe Biden.”
“Spotted at House votes: GOP Rep. Jeff Duncan of SC wearing a mask with a phrase that Republicans are using in place of F*** Joe Biden,” tweeted POLITICO reporter Olivia Beavers.

In South Carolina, Oconee Democratic Party chairwoman Jody Gaulin was fuming mad at Duncan.
According to Newsweek, Gaulin told The Seneca Journal, “Not only does Jeff Duncan not deliver for the people of the third district—I cannot think of a thing he has truly done—he now sports a vulgar slogan on his mask and walks off the floor!”
“The hypocrisy of the Faith and Freedom BBQ is exposed!” the Democrat raged.
Though the phrase “Let’s go Brandon” has become pretty widespread, a White House official recently told The Washington Post he has “never heard” of the saying. The Daily Wire reported:
The White House is claiming they are unfamiliar with anti-Joe Biden chants, such as the blunt and ever-popular “F*** Joe Biden” chant, and the more recent “Let’s Go Brandon” meme.
“Administration officials sought to downplay the phenomenon, and at least one claimed to be unfamiliar with the ‘Let’s go Brandon’ chant or its cruder cousin, though they are now chanted everywhere from football stadiums to concert arenas to local bars,” The Washington Post reported Saturday.
White House spokesman Andrew Bates claimed, “I had never heard of that chant until you explained it to me.”
Mocking the anti-Biden sentiment as fringe, Bates added, “I guess I’m not spending enough time on 8chan or whatever.”
The anti-Biden expression has even popped up in hit songs.
For example, rapper Bryson Gray’s “Let’s Go Brandon” song, despite being banned from YouTube and Instagram, became the number one most-downloaded on iTunes, according to PopVortex rankings on Sunday morning.
Another song aptly titled “Let’s Go Brandon!”, this one by rapper Loza Alexander, has earned success, too, reaching the number one spot on iTunes hip-hop chart, earlier this month. Here’s a sampling of the lyrics:
And I say it wit’ a passion
As I pull off in the Aston
Don’t nobody like his ass, huh?
Tried to cover up, but tell the people, go Brandon
But we know what they sayin’, though
You can hear thе chant in every post
Don’t nobody want this commie ‘causе we not in China
Everybody hated Trump, and now they out to catch a body
That’s what they get for treatin’ us like we in Squid Game
Dream light, mandate like he’s insane
These times, people wakin’ up to e’erything
Go Brandon, but we all know what the sayin’ mean
