The slogan is the code for insulting Biden among supporters of Biden's predecessor Donald Trump: When he got thrown at him by a caller on the phone on Friday evening, he probably didn't realize that he was insulted.
The incident on Christmas Eve took place during a conference call between the US President and children who were watching Santa Claus travel around the world live on the Internet.
Joe Biden only replied to the slogan “Let's Go Brandon”: I agree. Meanwhile his wife rolled her eyes.

With the sentence “Let's go Brandon”, which stands for “Fuck Joe Biden” in right-hand circles, a caller said goodbye to the US President on Friday evening.
He replied with: «I agree».
It is not entirely clear whether the President understood the implication or not, but the First Lady rolled her eyes.
A caller insulted US President Joe Biden live on TV on Christmas Eve – and he even agrees. Biden had been on the phone with some families on Friday when a caller said goodbye with the words “Let's Go Brandon” (in German, for example: “Let's go, Brandon”). The slogan is the code for insulting Biden among supporters of Biden's predecessor Donald Trump.
Biden reacted unmoved and said: “Let's go Brandon, I agree”. It was unclear whether the president had understood the allusion, but his wife Jill Biden, sitting next to them, giggled uncomfortably and rolled her eyes.
The slogan stands for «/Fuck Biden» h3>
The slogan stands for the vulgar abuse “Fuck Joe Biden”. It has its origins in a television incident in early October when a journalist for NBC interviewed a car race winner, Brandon Brown. While the fans were clearly singing “Fuck Joe Biden” in the background, the reporter said they were singing “Let's Go Brandon”. The sentence spread like wildfire in right-wing circles.
The Christmas Eve incident occurred during a conference call between the US President and children who were watching Santa Claus travel around the world live on the Internet. The US Air Defense Command Norad has specially made a website available for this.
“Merry Christmas and Let's Go Brandon!”
Caller “Jared” revealed himself to Biden as the father of four children. Biden spoke briefly to the children, asked them what presents they wanted for Christmas and told them to be in bed before midnight. He also mentioned that he and “Jared” both had sons named Hunter. At the end of the call, Biden wished “Jared” a “wonderful Christmas”. He replied: “Merry Christmas and Let's Go Brandon!”
Norad's Santa Claus tracker dates back to 1955. Back then, a newspaper ad in Colorado gave an incorrect phone number to connect children to Santa Claus. Instead of Santa Claus, they ended up on the hotline of the air defense command.
