Just about every American is by now familiar with the rousing cheer “Let’s go, Brandon!” Everyone also knows what it really means, or what the original chant was before an inventive sports reporter decided to interpret it as “let’s go, Brandon!” Apparently, there is at least one American, however, who is not in on the joke. Ironically enough, that man is the target of the joke: Joe Biden. On Friday morning, Biden demonstrated his cluelessness on national TV, but the media is already trying to spin it as something different.
As Joe and Jill Biden made the traditional phone calls to wish American children a happy Christmas, one father ended his call with “Merry Christmas and let’s go, Brandon.” Judging by the look on his face, Mr. Biden had no idea what the father was referring to but, without hesitation, he replied, “Let’s go Brandon, I agree.”

Reporting on this hilarious gaffe, Business Insider attempted to make it appear Biden is in on the joke but was simply being polite. “Biden allowed the insult to slide,” the report claims.
Um, no, it seems obvious that our sharp-witted commander in chief is not, in fact, up to speed.
