CARTOON: Who is Brandon?

| December 1, 2021 1:00 AM

For readers who did not understand your cartoon printed Nov. 17 referencing “Let’s go Brandon,” they were not watching a NASCAR race Oct. 2 at Talladega or seeing it on the internet.

A reporter was interviewing NASCAR driver Brandon Brown and the fans broke out with the chant, “F—Joe Biden.” This chant is already commonplace at sporting events. The chant went out over the airways and the interviewer’s surprised reaction was to say, “The fans are chanting, ‘let’s go Brandon.’” I was at the MMA matches at the Coeur d’Alene Casino Nov. 18 and the audience would chant, “Go Brandon go” between matches.

The ACLU is suing the Biden administration for separating the illegal immigrant families at the border and the Biden administration is willing to pay $450,000 to each illegal family member to settle the lawsuit.

Perhaps confidence in the president’s administration’s generous policies deserves this disrespectful chant. Even Bill Maher on his show said the chant.

Editor’s note: In November the Biden administration announced its rejection of any such payments to immigrant families who were separated at the border during the prior administration. The Department of Justice may make settlements in cases of pending lawsuits, according to reports.
