Twitter comforts BBC reporter troubled by hearing ‘Let’s Go, Brandon’ at Biden’s visit to Kentucky

A British Broadcasting Corporation correspondent covering President Joe Biden’s Kentucky trip to get a first-hand look at the deadly tornado damage on Wednesday expressed concern about what she saw and heard there.

“There is a Trump flag and when Biden got out of the motorcade someone called: ‘Let’s go, Brandon.’ They said it twice,” Tara McKelvey tweeted from Mayfield, Ky.

The BBC, which is funded by an increasingly controversial license fee charged to U.K. households, is roughly equivalent to America’s PBS, and with a similar ideological editorial approach.

The LGB chant or meme, as a playful substitute for a more profane slogan, has a history of triggering liberals in the corporate media. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, during one public appearance, even referred to the Biden administration as the Brandon administration.

So far, there are 74 confirmed deaths in Kentucky alone, plus many more unaccounted for in hard-hit communities like Mayfield, as a result of the destructive storms that hit the area over the weekend. The storm wreaked havoc in multiple states causing millions of dollars in damage in addition to the tragic loss of life. The administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) blamed the devastation on climate change.

Biden, who described the extent of the damage as “beyond belief,” announced as part of a presidential disaster declaration that the federal government will provide 100 percent of the funding for emergency-relief work for 30 days. Tennessee and Illinois are also subject to the federal disaster declaration.

“Mayfield was the hardest hit of several western Kentucky communities in the 200-mile…path of a twister that turned cities into piles of debris that are now being hauled away by work crews and National Guard troops. The city of 10,000 is under a boil-water order and accounts for more than one-third of the state’s 14,000 power outages,” Reuters reported.

FEMA “has sent search-and-rescue and emergency response teams to Kentucky, along with teams to help survivors register for assistance. FEMA has also sent dozens of generators into the state, along with 135,000 gallons…of water, 74,000 meals and thousands of cots, blankets, infant toddler kits and pandemic shelter kits,” the news outlet added.

Ironically, McKelvey may have departed from the approved narrative and triggered her own colleagues when she reported earlier this month that the POTUS dined at a D.C. restaurant without wearing a mask, which is not the first time that he was spotted in close quarters without a facial covering.

Social media users are reacting to the BBC correspondent’s on-site reporting from Kentucky.

“Hopefully you’ll get through this trying time,” quipped conservative influencer Stephen L. Miller.

“Imagine going to a disaster zone and thinking you’re the victim,” observed Angela Morabito of Campus Reform.

“They thought the tornado was bad, but then someone said ‘Let’s go, Brandon’ and eclipsed the horror,” joked Ian Haworth of the Daily Wire.

Many others are also weighing in about the reporter’s news judgment or the equivalent:
