WATCH –– Caller to the Bidens: “Merry Christmas and Let’s Go Brandon”

A man who called into the North American Aerospace Defense Command’s (NORAD) annual holiday Santa tracking program wished President Biden and first lady Jill Biden a Merry Christmas on Friday before saying “let’s go Brandon,” a slogan that has become popular among supporters of former President Trump as a veiled insult toward Biden.

A father, identified as Jared, called into the NORAD line and had a brief conversation with Biden. He was calling on behalf of his four children, according to CNN.

“Well, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas,” Biden told the man.

“Yeah, I hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas as well. Merry Christmas and let’s go Brandon,” the man said.

“Let’s go Brandon, I agree,” Biden responded.

WATCH:

The slogan went viral following an October NASCAR event. During an interview after the event, an NBC Sports reporter mistakenly said the crowd was chanting “Let’s go Brandon,” in support of NASCAR driver Brandon Brown, when in actuality they could be heard in the background chanting “f— Joe Biden.”
