President Joe Biden was greeted in Seattle by a protester who mocked him for getting confronted by the Easter Bunny earlier this week.
A woman holding a large Easter Bunny head shouted:
“Where’s the Bunny?” when the presidential motorcade passed and then shouted:
“Let’s go Brandon!” along the street.
Outside of Biden’s second speech in Washington, a woman holding a large Easter bunny costume head shouted WHERE’S THE BUNNY as the motorcade arrived and then, naturally, “let’s go Brandon” as she walked along once it rolled in. pic.twitter.com/fcsP0dDy6O— Josh Wingrove (@josh_wingrove) April 22, 2022
One reporter traveling with the president recorded a video of the incident and shared it on social media.
The protester was referring to the viral moment when a staffer dressed as the Easter Bunny interrupted Biden at an Easter event to redirect him away from reporters.
As the president drove by, a crowd of anti-Biden protesters kept up the “Let’s Go Brandon” chant.
The anti-Biden phrase became an internet sensation in October after an NBC reporter at a NASCAR Xfinity Series race incorrectly reported that fans in the stands were chanting ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ following a victory by driver Brandon Brown, when they were really shouting, ‘F–k Joe Biden.
It has since become a wildly popular anti-Biden rallying cry, breaking out at concerts, sporting events, and even churches.
After the NASCAR Xfinity Series race in October, "F*** Joe Biden" chants could be heard from fans as an NBC reporter interviewed Brandon Brown.
The reporter did damage control by claiming the chants were "let's go, Brandon," which backfired and became a viral anti-Biden phrase.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed Biden does not “spend much time focused on” or “thinking about” the “Let’s go, Brandon!” slogan,
“The president said when he came into office on Inauguration Day — he said he was going to help get rid of the ‘uncivil war’ in this country. So I guess, through that lens right now, does the president think there are things that he can do differently?” the reporter asked.
