On Sunday, before the Daytona 500 started people were using the “Let’s Go Brandon” chant while saying the “f*ck Joe Biden slogan.

In a live broadcast of the NASCAR Cup Series motor race held at Daytona Beach on Sunday, NASCAR fans were asked by a Fox 35 Orlando reporter what he was going to say on the finish line.

“What do you think I’m going to sign? I’m going to sign ‘F–K Joe Biden,’” the fan said with emphasis.

The reporter quickly turned away, telling his audience, “That’s the risk we have here when we broadcast live.”

Oh, but the reporter’s troubles were not quite over. The next fan was no less forthcoming than the first.

“I love the American flag shirt,” the reporter said to a fan wearing just such a shirt. “What are you going to sign on the checkered line?”

“Um, I just did. Would you like to see what I wrote?” the man replied.

“Just tell me,” the beleaguered reporter asked. “is it clean?”

“It is not clean,” the fan warned.

It’s unclear what the man really wrote, but a woman narrating the shocking moment speculated: “F*** Joe Biden,” she said with a laugh.

The “f*ck Joe Biden” chant was prominently heard at many sporting events last year, but the expletive-laden phrase was replaced by “Let’s Go Brandon” in October, originating at a NASCAR race. Fans were chanting “f*ck Joe Biden after NASCAR’s race at Talladega when NBC reporter Kelly Stavast misheard the insult during an interview with winning driver Brandon Brown.

The Daily Wire also reported Mike Rowe’s explanation in December about the real meaning behind the highly-popularized, “clever,” and “hysterical” chant:

 “The times that we’re living in right now are forcing lots of people on both sides of the aisle to look at a thing, or hear a thing, and be told that what they’re seeing and what they’re hearing is not real,” Rowe said. “And you can’t do that to people indefinitely and expect them not to push back somehow. You can’t tell people that the border is secure and then show them images of tens of thousands of people flooding over it. You can’t tell people that the evacuation of Afghanistan was a success and then show them people falling off of a plane. … And you can’t ask people who are watching a NASCAR race at home, who clearly hear the crowd yelling ‘F*** Joe Biden’ to pretend that what they’re really hearing is ‘Let’s Go Brandon.’”

“I think what’s happened is people have just become sick and tired of being told that what they’re seeing and what they’re hearing is not what they’re seeing and hearing,” Rowe emphasized.

“And this is the perfect trope,” he continued. “I don’t think people who yell it are necessarily enemies of the president. I think they’re enemies of being told that what they’re seeing and what they’re hearing isn’t real, that it’s somehow a figment of their imagination. People are sick of that.”
