NBC reporter’s confusion goes viral

You’d think the crowd would be cheering for the winner but it seems some of them were chanting “f*** Joe Biden” as an insult to the US president.

The NBC reporter said: “You can hear the chants from the crowd – ‘Let’s go Brandon,’” but after a few listens, it does sound like the insult!

Since the interview there has been debate on what the crowd were truly saying – even Donald Trump Jr tweeted about the blunder.

Yahoo reports “f*** Joe Biden” chants have been cropping up all over the US, presumably from Trump supporters.

However, it’s the phrase “Let’s go Brandon” people seem to want on their merch. Here’s what we’ve found.

Where to buy ‘Let’s go Brandon’ T-shirts

There are several T-shirt options on eBay, ranging in price from $14.95 to $23.95, while this seller offers the shirt in several colours.

If you’ve got friends who are in on the joke, you can save money by purchasing several at once.

Shirts aren’t your thing? Other eBay sellers have transferred the chant on to stickers so you can plaster it on everything you own.

As winter approaches, a hat is a must, especially this one featuring the chant.

There’s also a coffee mug, which would surely start an interesting conversation at work!
