A crowd of people gathered to listen to remarks by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) erupted into chants of “Let’s go, Brandon” on Wednesday after DeSantis referred to the Biden administration as the “Brandon administration”

“If you look at that, if you look at what’s going on with some of the big corporations with their woke agenda, when you look at the Biden, the Brandon administration in terms of what they’re [doing]–” DeSantis said as the audience burst out into laughter and cheers.

For the next several moments, DeSantis stood back as the room erupted with chants of “Let’s go, Brandon!”

“Do you know how that started?” DeSantis asked the audience. “Like it was, you have the media, their hand wringing over this, but, you know, it was at a NASCAR race, and they’re doing an interview with a driver, I guess his name was Brandon. And the crowd starts chanting very colorful language about Joe Biden.”

“And it was obvious that [that’s what] they were doing and, you know, it is what it is,” he continued. “First of all, they said way worse about Trump for four years. We know that. But so they’re chanting this, and so you have a reporter from NBC, who knows that’s what they’re saying. And she’s trying to cover for Biden, so she says, ‘Yeah, they’re chanting, let’s go, Brandon.'”

“And that was a lie. And it was a lie,” he added. “And so this chant, I think, has taken on a life of its own because it exposes the dishonesty of these corporate reporters and what they do every day to try to lie. And so now you see it.”

[laughter and cheering]

AUDIENCE: “Let’s go, Brandon!”

DESANTIS: You know, I don’t even know like, do you know how that started? Like it was, you have the media, their hand wringing over this, but, you know, it was at a NASCAR race, and they’re doing an interview with a driver, I guess his name was Brandon. And the crowd starts chanting very colorful language about Joe Biden. And it was obvious that [that’s what] they were doing and, you know, it is what it is. First of all, they said way worse about Trump for four years. We know that. But so they’re chanting this, and so you have a reporter from NBC, who knows that’s what they’re saying. And she’s trying to cover for Biden, so she says, ‘Yeah, they’re chanting, let’s go, Brandon.’ And that was a lie. And it was a lie. And so this chant, I think, has taken on a life of its own because it exposes the dishonesty of these corporate reporters and what they do every day to try to lie. And so now you see it. But bottom line is, we’ve got a lot of things that we’re facing.
