    That's not a call to boycott but rather a prediction.

      But let's face it, this has been old Joe's singular achievement so far. He has united the country as promised. You can go to virtually any big event now and folks will spontaneously break into chants of either the original "Foxtrot Juliett Bravo" or the "Let's go Brandon" version. Even Trump couldn't muster this sort of unified animosity.

      Btw, rumor has it that at BYU the crowd was chanting "Let's fudge Biden."
      At this point, it's clear the expression is being used as a disguised f-bomb, which is an automatic 5-pointer, last I checked. It's just as clear that it's only the right fringe using the expression. That fringe has certainly grown, as evident from KG's mic drop, but they're still the alternative facts folks.

        Er..... no. It was the reporter who declared they were saying "Let's Go Brandon" despite anyone with ears being able to tell otherwise. Not the driver.

          Eh, sounds more like a plea to me. "It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do." A prediction, emphasized with support.

            Could this be a sign that he doesn't plan on running in 2024?
            My reaction to that is 'please do'. The people that are supporting Trump right now are a clear and present danger to this nation anyway ( because of who Trump is ) and so anything that will keep the Trump train out of the mix is probably good.

              Trump was president for four years. Can you explain "the danger" he presents?

                Wrong. It was the NBC news ditz who declared that the crowd was chanting "Let's Go Brandon!" when it was very clear that was not what they were chanting. I'd post the video but all the f-bombs in it prohibited me from doing so.

                In any case the quote is (right after Brandon was thanking everyone)

                NBC reporter: "Brandon you also told me ...[Pause]... As you can hear the chants from the from the crowd ...[Pause (where you can clearly hear the chant)]... Let's go Brandon! Brandon you told me you were going to kind of hang back those first two stages and just watch and learn. What did you learn that helped you in your closing laps?"

                In that case then saying "fudge" or "fiddlesticks" would be disguised profanity.

                Good think you don't enforce the rules around here.

                Btw, this chant is crossing political lines. You even have some liberals joining in (again the f-bombs prevent me from linking). Old Joe is unifying the country in their disgust with his fumbling and bumbling.

                  He really said it, but to be fair, that's a rather ambiguous statement. I suppose it could be read as saying that if we don't guard against fraud, then Republicans will not be voting even if they cast ballots. Although it could also be read as him saying that Republicans will simply choose not to vote because they know their vote won't be counted anyway. What I don't see is him explicitly calling for a boycott of the elections even if that's how it is being interpreted.

                      And she was widely praised for her obvious lie by the media machine who lavished her as "quick thinking", saying that she responded well to an awkward situation with one outlet calling it a "smooth save".

                        It is another attempt to sow division and unrest on his behalf and to his narcissistic and self-serving end. Trump clearly believes he must undo the elective process in order to get the power he craves. And sadly, even the Klingons were smarter than Republicans when it comes to this sort of being.

                        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_of_the_Dove

                        It's time we join together, recognizing that a king, or cult of a man, was and always has been the sort of destructive influence this nation cannot survive, and rid ourselves of Trump and Trump's destructive influence and get back to the business of conservatives and liberal ideas battling it out on terms consistent within the ideals and the best traditions of our nation.

                        If anyone reading this hasn't seen the episode, take the time to watch it.

                          For all intents and purposes it is. His conditional is basically unless the election gets overturned. That's not going to happen. Additionally, saying "it's the most important thing for Republicans to do" is phrasing it a a call to action as well, which is more than a mere "prediction". (We already know this depressed the vote in Georgia somewhat as well, because Ronna McDaniel was arguing with some of his supporters there who told her they were not going to bother voting because their votes wouldn't be counted, so it seems likely this will have at least some similar effect here.)

                            Hence, a bad prediction.

                              This will be yet another election where a Christian has the option to vote AGAINST a whole bunch of things that are destroying our nation, not the least of which is abortion.
                              That we have to vote "for" somebody we don't like is, indeed, a very sad state of affairs.

                              The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.
