I see it as mocking the media instead of Biden.

That's the excuse.
But "Let's go Brandon" is a fairly sharp arrowhead aimed squarely at Biden

It seems meaner to the senile old man and to the United States, to have put him in the position of running this nation. The main thing about the stunt, was his reaction to it as another example of how out to lunch he is. When it comes to the position he's in as the most powerful man on earth, I didn't think we can be all that charitable regarding his apparently declining mental capacity.

I got hundreds of reports of unsubstantiated "trumped up" lies about Biden peddled by GOP sympathisers.

The "Let's go Brandon", jokes about Biden dropping dead, making fun of his senility, claims he;s a pedophile and tying him to outrageous conspiracies (all covertly and overtly supported by the GOP), snide remarks about his wife and outrageous attacks on his children all amount to tit for tat.


I see someone got you this for Christmas to replace the one(s) you wore out over the past year:

To return to the subject of the thread, let's consider a similar sentiment to that from the person who had telephoned in:


A person with "double standards" in this case would be either:
A person who spoke out vocally, and continually about the lack of respect shown by Mr DeNiro's words and then turned around and used similar words about the subsequent president.
OR
A person who remained silent about Mr DeNiro's words yet feigns outrage when similar things are said about the subsequent president.

You wouldn't be aware of anyone who fits either of these categories, would you?

If Trump had a serious disease like Parkinson’s ,I would think it was cruel to make fun of him by calling him “ old shakey”, or any other insult aimed at a disability or illness.I see nothing wrong with calling him an Oompa Loompa, orange man or an a$$hole.
My Biden cringe moment was when he called the tornado that hit Kentucky a hurricane.

I thought the crowd chanting Fvck Joe Biden was aimed at him and the media claiming it as "Let's go Brandon" was the excuse. YMMV

The infantile MAGAs watching NAZCAR on TV thought it was hilarious because the journalist couldn't fathom why the largely white male crowd would not be cheering the winning racer instead of using it as an opportunity to throw slurs at Biden.

It's something akin to drunken frat boy humour that kind of fits with the typical republican voter these days

My family was Republican, as in Rockefeller Republicans.No way would they have endorsed such crass behavior.

BS.

Here De Niro is like the crowd of Nascar fans chanting "f**k Trump".

Niether better nor worse. Just expressing his free speech, and unvarnished "earthy" way.

No one condemned either.

The guy were talking went beyond that.

If De Niro had pretended to be the Pope , had called Trump on Trump's White House phone,had wished Trump a merry Christmas as the Pope, and THEN persuaded Trump to recite "this sacred Catholic Latin catechism to ensure a blessed new year" and then gotten Trump to say out loud on tape "Ohwatanassiam" (oh what an ass I am) then THAT would like this guy were talking about.

Dont know if I condemn the guy myself, or not. But they arent the same thing.
