"Biden's vaccine mandate is unconstitutional. Period. Texans shouldn't be forced to choose between their livelihood & a vaccine. I'm confident the Lone Star State will win any legal showdown my Executive Order may bring." Texas Gov Greg Abbott

This week Texas Governor Greg Abbott shared a clip on his Twitter account from an interview he conducted with news outlet Breitbart about vaccine mandates.

The interview with Abbott was conducted in an empty Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium and raised eyebrows from some concerned Longhorns fans who were not happy that Abbott was using their stadium as a backdrop for the interview.

Of even more interest was when Gov Abbott followed up with another tweet criticizing President Joe Biden and in this post used a phrase that has been trending on social media this week.

"Let's Go Brandon! From the record levels of inflation to the crisis at our southern border, Americans are fed up with Biden's dangerous, liberal policies." Texas Gov Greg Abbott

So what does Let's Go Brandon mean?

It refers to an interview that was held with NASCAR racer Brandon Brown who had just won his first Xfinity race. During the interview, fans started chanting in the background, and it appeared that they were chanting, "f*** Joe Biden.”

The reporter, however, claimed the crowd was actually chanting, “Let’s go, Brandon.’

You can determine for yourself what the crowd was saying by watching the interview below.

Ever since the interview, social media has lit up with memes popularizing the "Let's go, Brandon," chant and now it seems that even Texas Governor Abbott has jumped on the bandwagon.

Texas readers, what do you think of Gov Abbott using this phrase? Do you think it is appropriate for Abbott to use a condescending phrase that is linked to obscene language? Or are you glad that he is using a trending social media phrase?
