“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.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar kicked off House Foreign Affairs Committee
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.
After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.
Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”
“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”
Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”
A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”
Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.
In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
