Traveling to Minnesota to tout his spending-spree, alleged infrastructure bill, President Joe Biden wasn’t given a lot to build on when he was met at the airport by people carrying signs that said “FJB” – short for “F-ck Joe Biden” and “You suck” along with other less flattering signs, reported the New York Post.
“At least one person wore a shirt reading ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ — a slogan used as a bowdlerized stand-in for ‘F–k Joe Biden.’ The same message appeared on signs and at least one large flag,” said the Post.

The outpouring is to some extent an expression of the unmitigated anger not just at the president, but anger at the media bias that infects our press, who previously lived quite easily with the term “F-ck Trump” but seem outraged by chants of “Let’s go Brandon” as a more polite way of expressing displeasure for Trump’s successor, Joe Biden.
During the Trump administration, liberal fantasies of murdering Trump were quite common with one New York play featuring a Trump-like actor appearing as Julius Caesar being assassinated in a park.
“Such fantasies [about Trump] are all over the internet, dismissed as the raves of the ignorant, the crazy and the foolish, but beginning to seep into respectable conversation, so called,” said the Washington Times when reporting on the Shakespeare play.
So perhaps heckling Biden as something of a cottage industry is an improvement.
The New York Post noted that last week a man in Nantucket flipped his middle finger at a Biden motorcade as it passed him.
“In September, North Jersey residents heckled Biden and also gave his motorcade middle fingers. ‘Resign, you tyrant!’ one man shouted as Biden toured a storm-damaged neighborhood,” said the Post.
American are upset with Biden on a wide range of issues from inflation, the never-ending COVID restrictions, and putting social issues above the economy after he campaigned on a presidency to unify all Americans.
“A President Joe Biden, we were told, would be a moderate president, one who could unite Americans and competently lead our nation,” opined USAToday.
