Trump’s campaign team sent an email Thursday offering “Let’s Go Brandon” t-shirts in exchange for any campaign donation of $ 45 or more.
The email reads in part: “You’ve probably heard it sung anywhere patriotic Americans gather. Well, now, President TrumpDonald Trump Night Defense and National Security – Presented by Boeing – Milley Warns of ‘Sputnik Moment’ for China WSJ Releases Letter from Trump Continuing to Allege Election Fraud in PA Oath Keeper, Who Was on Capitol Hill Jan.6, Runs for the New Jersey State Assembly MORE has put America’s new favorite phrase on a custom t-shirt. That’s right. President Trump just authorized the launch of his new limited edition ‘LET’S GO BRANDON’ T-shirts. “
The email goes on to say that the shirt is in “high demand” and is indicated in the email as “low stock”. The email announces it by saying, “Whether you’re at a concert, a soccer game, or just walking in the park, you’ll probably hear someone say ‘LET’S GO BRANDON.’ Now you can have a matching t-shirt. “
The viral phrase “let’s go Brandon” first became popular at a NASCAR race in Alabama, according to ABC 4. It was initially used in reference to NASCAR driver Brandon Brown, but when people sing or write “Brandon,” they are generally not cheering for the NASCAR racer, according to ABC 4.
The phrase went viral after Brown was interviewed by Kelli Stavas. In the background of the interview, the crowd in the stands shouted a political statement: “F — Joe bidenJoe BidenBiden to Meet House Democrats Ahead of Europe Trip: Report 21 House Democrats Call for Removal of IRS Bank Reporting Proposal from Spending Bill Overnight Health Care – Presented by Altria – Vulnerable Democrats Push Drug Pricing Plan MORE“, Reports ABC 4.
However, that was not what Kelli Stavas heard, according to ABC 4.
“How can you hear the chants of the crowd: ‘Come on, Brandon,'” Stavas stated incorrectly while speaking to Brown, reports ABC 4.
Since then, the meme has taken off, spread on social media, and been mentioned by high-ranking politicians.
