“Let’s Go Brandon” is spreading through the House Republican caucus.
Last week Congressman Bill Posey (R- FL) ended a fiery speech with the phrase, and on Monday another Republican wore a “Let’s Go Brandon” mask on the House floor.
Congressman Jeff Duncan (R- SC) wore the mask on the House floor, Punchbowl News’ Jake Sherman tweeted. Politico’s Olivia Beavers posted a photo of the mask in question.
South Carolina @RepJeffDuncan just walked off the floor with a “Let’s Go Brandon” mask on.

“Let’s Go Brandon” has become a coded catchphrase of sorts for critics of the president to say “Fuck Joe Biden.”
A sports reporter misheard “Fuck Joe Biden” chants from NASCAR fans as “Let’s Go Brandon,” and so Republicans have embraced the latter as a means of implicitly stating the former.
