Southwest Pilot Signs Off With Let’s Go Brandon & Blue Checkmarks Heads Go Boom!

Twitter can’t handle it.

According to TheNewYorkPost:

A Southwest Airlines pilot speaking over his plane’s public address system reportedly told passengers, “Let’s go, Brandon” — an anti-Biden inside joke, according to a report.

The unidentified pilot signed off with the phrase Friday, on a flight from Houston to Albuquerque, according to the Associated Press.

The phrase is a PG stand-in for “F–k Joe Biden,” and has been popularized in recent chart-topping songs.

It was birthed when a network television reporter misheard a NASCAR crowd, which was repeating the more R-rated version.

Southwest was forced to cancel thousands of flights earlier this month. While the airline blamed the weather, many speculated the schedule snarl-up was in fact due to a wildcat strike by pilots resisting the impending COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Days later, the airline’s CEO blamed President Biden and said he personally was against vaccine mandates.

President Biden mandated federal contractors to get the COVID-19 jab.

On Oct. 27, a federal judge rejected the pilot union’s attempt to block the company from imposing a mandate.
