Biden Says 'Justice Has Been Delivered' After Drone Strike Kills Al Qaeda ...
Remember the Let's Go Brandon meme taking over timelines last year? Yep, it's still pushing through, but this time liberals have put a spin on it to support Joe Biden.
For context, the coded catchphrase was birthed at a NASCAR race in October. Driver Brandon Brown had received his first Xfinity Series race victory and was being interviewed by an NBC Sports reporter. Mid-interview, the Republican-heavy crowd erupted into chants which the interviewer passed off as "let's go Brandon", but it became increasingly clear they were yelling: "F*** Joe Biden".
It has since spread among right-wing circles, with Republican Rep Bill Posey of Florida ending a House floor speech with a fist pump and "Let’s go, Brandon!" South Carolina Republican Jeff Duncan sported a "Let’s Go Brandon" face mask at the Capitol, and Ted Cruz posed with a "Let’s Go Brandon" sign at the World Series.
There has since been a spin-off version under "Dark Brandon", often accompanied by edited depictions of Biden as an evil villain.
While it appears to have started amongst conservatives, Biden supporters have given the meaning a new lease of life by turning it into something more positive.
On Monday (August 1), the Biden administration announced it killed Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in a drone strike over the weekend. Social media was soon flooded with "Dark Brandon" memes to acknowledge and celebrate what is said to be the biggest blow to the militants since Osama bin Laden was shot dead over a decade ago.
