The Biden White House is doing damage control for the president yet again – claiming to be unfamiliar with a viral anti-Joe Biden movement that has been plastered all over the internet in recent weeks.
The White House claimed to have no knowledge of anti-Biden chants such as the ever-popular “F*** Joe Biden” chant, and the more recent “Let’s Go Brandon” meme which went viral after 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.”
“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.
White House spokesman Andrew Bates claimed, “I had never heard of that chant until you explained it to me.”
Attempting to downplay the anti-Biden sentiment as some sort of fringe movement, Bates added, “I guess I’m not spending enough time on 8chan or whatever.”
Reacting to the White House denial, Donald Trump Jr. posted a screencap of the Post article and snarked via Instagram, “If they’re not familiar, let’s keep it going until they are.”
The Washington Post even admitted that President Joe Biden himself has addressed the phenomenon.
In one example a clearly rattled POTUS reacted to hundreds of anti-Biden protesters and “F*** Joe Biden” signs and chants during a visit to Michigan on October 5.
The Daily Wire reported at the time:
“An irritated President Joe Biden on Tuesday evening reacted to his chilly reception in Michigan, boasting to his hundreds of protesters — many holding “f*** Joe Biden” signs — that he won the 2020 election with a record 81 millions votes.
“They said it was time to build an economy that looks out from Scranton, Pennsylvania — where I grew up as a kid — instead of looking down from Wall Street. Notwithstanding some of the signs I saw coming in … that’s why 81 million Americans voted for me,” Biden said, emphasizing that he has a mandate to implement his “Build Back Better” agenda. … “The largest number of votes in American history — a clear majority!””
Not surprisingly, however, given the Post’s full blown left wing bias, the outlet complains that the criticism of the president is too “harsh,” before suggesting that its linked to the “norm-breaking and vulgarity of the Trump era” adding that Biden pushback is “on another level” and “far more vulgar and widespread.”
The Post states, “Yet the anger also demonstrates how a political party or cause often needs an enemy, a target of vilification that can unite its adherents — and, in this case, one refracted through the harshness, norm-breaking and vulgarity of the Trump era. … The current eruption of anti-Biden signs and chants, however, is on another level, far more vulgar and widespread.”
While the Post attempts to shrug it off as some deeply partisan movement occurring in Republican strongholds, they fail to mention that the viral chants have been heard in places as blue as Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Boston, Massachusetts, and most recently in New York City as thousands of municipal workers marched to stop the spread of vaccine mandates.
