The POTUS seemed unperturbed by the phrase he was addressed with, simply inquiring where the caller was from.
US President Joe Biden has ended up saying the phrase that has of late been used as a thinly-veiled insult aimed at him. The moment came during the NORAD Santa Tracker event at the White House on Friday.
The incident occurred when POTUS and his wife, First Lady Jill Biden, were virtually conversing with kids and parents from across the country. One purported father named Jared from Oregon greeted Biden with the phrases "Merry Christmas" and "Let's Go Brandon" – the latter phrase being used as a slogan employed by Biden's detractors and a euphemism for "F*ck Joe Biden".
"Let's Go Brandon, I agree", Biden replied.
The US president seemed unperturbed by the way he was addressed and inquired conversationally where the caller was from.
Many social media users, however, seemed amused by the development, tweeting their feelings.
