Southwest pilot says anti-Biden joke ‘Let’s go Brandon’ over intercom: report

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.

An AP reporter, Colleen Long, was aboard the Houston-Albuquerque flight — and was “almost” removed from the plane after asking the crew to open the cockpit, so she could ask the pilot for comment, she tweeted.

A Southwest rep told The Post: “The Southwest team takes pride in providing a welcoming, comfortable, and respectful environment for the millions of customers who fly with the airline each year and behavior from any individual that is divisive or offensive will not be tolerated.”
