Nancy Pelosi was interrupted during an infrastructure event in San Francisco on Monday afternoon after a protestor shouted ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ in the middle of her speech.
Pelosi, 81, was speaking on behalf of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better bill in an attempt to help improve the safety of San Francisco streets.
During her speech, the California representative was interrupted by an unidentified male protestor who shouted ‘Let’s Go Brandon!’ and ‘USA! USA!’ as he passed by.
The Democratic Speaker of the House was left flustered by the sudden interruption as she stood at the podium stammering on her words.
She then handed the stand over to Rep. Mark DeSaulnier who jokingly remarked ‘I hope he’s not one of my constituents.’

The phrase ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ has been used as an alternative for ‘F**k Joe Biden!’ by his critics
The chant came about last month as NASCAR fans screamed ‘F**k Joe Biden!’ in unison as the winner of Alabama’s Talladega Superspeedway race gave an interview about his victory.
The profane chant insulting Joe Biden broke out after Brandon Brown received his first NASCAR Xfinity Series race victory.
Shortly after Brown gave his post-race interview, telling a reporter his victory was a ‘dream come true,’ crowds in the stands began to chant loudly: ‘F**k Joe Biden.’
NBC Sports reporter Kelli Stavast, who was conducting the interview, recognized the chants but instead claimed fans were shouting ‘Let’s go Brandon!’ in an apparent bid to spare viewers’ blushes.
Brown says that initially, he didn’t hear the chant or even realize his name had become a meme.
Since then, the chants have spread to college and professional sporting events with the euphemism embraced by trolling conservatives. Governor Ron DeSantis’ PAC is even selling t-shirts with the phrase printed upon it.
The phrase has become a rallying cry for Biden’s critics, and ‘Let’s go Brandon’ is now conservative code for the original vulgar chant.
The meme also worked its way into the mainstream beyond political figures as well.
Southwest Airlines is investigating one of its pilots who said ‘Let’s go Brandon’ over his intercom upon landing the plane.
He was apparently seen on a TikTok video telling passengers ‘Let’s go Brandon’ at the end of the flight from Texas to New Mexico.

And a song by rapper Bryson Gray of the same name knocked superstar singer Adele off the top of the iTunes charts.
Brown has said that he wants the phrase to be something positive and ‘productive’ such as ‘Let’s Go, America!’ He has refused to be drawn on his personal views on Trump and Biden, and says he fears being so closely-linked to a heavily-partisan chant could harm his career prospects.
‘I don’t want it to just be the substitute for a cuss-word. I mean, if it’s making it more polite, then, by God, I guess, go ahead,’ he said.
‘This whole Talladega race win was supposed to be a celebration, and then it was supposed to be something that I was able to use to move up, and I really wanted to capitalize on that, but with this meme going viral, it was more of, I had to stay more silent, because everybody wanted it to go on to the political side. I’m about the racing side.
‘The issue is, I don’t know enough about politics to really form a true opinion, so I really focus on racing,’ Brown added.
