‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Flies the Friendly Skies: Southwest Pilot Signs off to Passengers with Phrase

Southwest said it is conducting an internal investigation

“Let’s Go Brandon” is now flying the friendly skies. A TikTok video of a Southwest Airlines pilot signing off to passengers by saying “Let’s Go Brandon” has gone viral. As a flight from Houston, Texas to Albuquerque, New Mexico was landing, the pilot had some additional things to say other than weather conditions.

“We’re heading east at about 107 or 108mph,” the pilot begins. “Clear visibility, mostly clear skies, about 77 degrees” he informs the passengers. “Thanks for coming out, flying Southwest Airlines, welcome home and let’s go Brandon” he signed off. The phrase has become a well-known euphemism for “F*** Joe Biden.”

The airline has not released the name of the pilot, and his face was pixelated in the public TikTok video, which was clearly filmed in the cockpit. This particular pilot does not appear to be an isolated incident. Pilots were also reportedly heard continuously repeating the popular message “Let’s Go Brandon” on their radios throughout the day.

According to audio posted online, someone had even warned the pilots that “Southwest has a hot mic.” The pilots were not deterred. Although Southwest Airlines did not speak directly about the incident, a spokesperson for the airline gave a statement to DailyMail.com.

“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 is not condoned” the statement said.

The phrase is being chanted by groups large and small everywhere, as well as printed and sold on various types of paraphernalia. Songs honoring and titled after the saying are hitting the top of song charts, even beating out sensation Adele’s new album.

Southwest has had issues with the vaccine mandate put in place by President Joe Biden, which requires all federal contractors, including airline employees, to be vaccinated by December 8. The Southwest Airlines Pilots Association filed a lawsuit earlier this month asking a federal judge to temporarily block the mandate until an existing lawsuit over US labor law violations is resolved.

Over Columbus Day weekend Southwest cancelled over 2,000 flights, blaming weather conditions. Many speculate the disruption was actually due to employee walkouts protesting the mandate, as well as many others taking advantage of their paid vacation time before being put on unpaid leave as punishment for not getting vaccinated.

    I want to fly Southwest Airlines just for this! At this time,I’m shopping for “Let’s go Brandon” merchandise as gifts for all those many, many people who love the phrase, as well as for myself.

    The Southwest pilot who signed off with the phrase is a national hero, standing up against tyranny, fascism, and the hypocrisy of the left who considered it their natural right to spread lies and hatred against President Donald Trump. Now that their cognitively severely challenged puppet is making decisions that are destroying the country and individual lives, they are suddenly sensitive.

    Well, “LET’S GO BRANDON!”

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
