Journalist Says Southwest Pilot Said “Let’s Go Brandon” Over Com Before Takeoff

The funny thing is, I want to believe this story is true as much as the stupid cunt reporter claiming it’s true.

But I’m not sure it’s true.


Critics are calling for the firing of an unidentified pilot after he allegedly signed off when speaking to his passengers, including a reporter, by saying, “Let’s Go, Brandon,” a phrase commonly used to insult President Joe Biden.

In Saturday tweets, Associated Press reporter Colleen Long said she was on the Southwest flight from Houston, Texas to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and claimed she was almost “removed” after trying to ask the pilot about using the phrase.

That feeling when you’re trying to go on vacation and then the pilot says the very thing you’re working on over the loudspeaker and you have to try to get him comment but then almost get removed from plane,” Long tweeted, along with a story by her digging into the “let’s go, Brandon” phrase, which has become common at sporting events and among Biden critics.

The phrase began at a NASCAR event after an NBC reporter claimed to mishear a crowd chanting, “f**k Joe Biden,” instead hearing the now viral term.

Long said when she approached the cockpit to speak to the pilot, it was locked and they were about to begin departing.

A TikTok video showing a pilot saying the phrase as he prepares his passengers for landing has also been spread around social media, and it appears to be from a different flight. Pilots have been recently heard frequently repeating the phrase over their radios, according to a Daily Mail report.

Long’s account of events had many calling for the airline – which has been plagued by flight cancelations many critics believe have been caused by staffing shortages due to the Covid-19 vaccine mandate – to identify and fire the pilot. Others called for boycotts of the airline as a whole.

So as the plane was taking off she tried to force her way into the cockpit in order to confront the pilot on his support for Brandon, and then was shocked when it didn’t work out.

Yeah, I’m sorry, but I’m gonna have to file this under “shit that didn’t really happen.”

I’m not sure if you know this, but both women and journalists are known for just making up completely fake claims.

It looks like she was aware of reports that pilots had said this on private channels, so she just invented the story about how the pilot said it over the com, then invented her reaction and ensuing events.

Unless maybe the pilot works for The Lincoln Project.

(The other thing here is – wasn’t it a total fake hoax that Southwest pilots were opposed to Joe Biden? Wasn’t that what the media was saying just a couple weeks ago? That it was a QAnon fake news theory, and actually all Southwest employees love Joe Biden and are really happy they’re being forced to take his deadly vaccine?)
