Jill Biden booed by crowd in Joe Biden’s home state (VIDEOS)

Philadelphia football fans told the first lady loud and clear what they thought of her husband

First Lady Jill Biden was greeted by thousands of chanting football fans “Fuck Joe Biden” when she appeared at a Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday night. The teasing drowned out his attempts to sing along with the team’s fight song.

Ms Biden was named honorary captain of the Eagles for their clash with the Dallas Cowboys, taking part in the pre-game draw and singing the team’s song – ‘Fly Eagles Fly’ – alongside a band of cancer patients and survivors.

However, the lyrics were drowned out by a torrent of boos and jeers. As Biden continued to sing, groups of fans chanted “F**k Joe Biden,” with some opting for the family alternative, “Let’s go Brandon.”

Gangs of sports fans started singing “Fuck Joe Biden” at the games last summer, with “Let’s Go Brandon” from a now infamous video of an NBC News reporter claiming to have misheard the vulgar chorus while interviewing NASCAR winner Brandon Brown at a race in Florida.

The phrase spawned songs, protest signs and t-shirts, and was spoken by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who dubbed the Biden administration “the Brandon administration.” Biden himself acknowledged the phenomenon at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in April, joking that “a guy named Brandon” has been “Having a great year.”

Philadelphia Eagles fans have a reputation for being rowdy and have been known to pelt rival teams, former players and even Santa Claus with projectiles. President Biden called them last year “the most obnoxious fans in the world.”

A native of Pennsylvania, Joe Biden won Keystone State with 50% of the vote against 48.8% for Donald Trump, and won Philadelphia County with 81% against 18%. Trump accused Biden of winning by fraud, alleging there were more votes than voters in the state.
