Joe and Jill Brandon took NORAD Christmas phone calls from families at the White House Friday. One dad closed out the call with a cheery “Let’s go Brandon!”, a phrase that has become a euphemism for the profane protest chant “F*** Brandon.”
Jill giggled while Joe said, “Let’s go Brandon! I agree.”
Brandon to dad named Jared: “I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.”
Jared: “Yeah, I hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas as well. Merry Christmas, and Let’s go Brandon!”
Brandon: “Let’s go Brandon! I agree. Hey, by the way, are you in Oregon? Where’s you’re home?”
No response, Jared probably hung up or was disconnected.

POTUS exchange on NORAD call with kids/parents tracking Santa’s progress.
Jared: “I hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas as well and let’s go Brandon.” (a right-wing euphemism for ‘f*** Brandon)
Brandon: “Let’s go Brandon, I agree.”
