Democrat President Joe Biden has finally caved to popular demand and called himself “Brandon.”
Biden used the moniker during his remarks at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last night.
The president has come close to acknowledging his nickname before but we couldn’t tell if he was actually aware of the insult.
This time, however, he appeared to make a direct reference to the popular anti-Biden nickname.
The joke finally clarified that Biden, or at least his handlers, is aware of the “Let’s Go, Brandon” phrase.
Before handing the microphone over to host Roy Wood Jr. Biden said:
“Roy … I’m going to be fine with your jokes, but I’m not sure about Dark Brandon.”

CNN’s Scott Jennings called out Biden after the president made a tasteless joke about never taking questions from the media.
Jennings said: “On Biden, the line that will stick with me is, ‘in a lot of ways, this dinner sums up my first two years in office, I’ll talk for 10 minutes, take zero questions, and cheerfully walk away.’
“For the journalists in the room, he wasn’t laughing with you, he was laughing at you.
“The guy does not take questions, he’s up there joking about it.
“I’m pro-reporter, and I think the President of the United States ought to have to talk to these reporters and not mock them.”
Biden told a few other jokes during his speech, as Slay News reported earlier.
He took swipes at Tucker Carlson, Rupert Murdoch, Don Lemon, and Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Biden said: “I believe in the First Amendment, and not just because my good friend Jimmy Madison wrote it.
“I get that age is a completely reasonable issue.
“It’s on everyone’s mind, by everyone I mean the New York Times.
“I like Rupert Murdoch,” Biden said.
“How can I dislike a guy who makes me look like Harry Styles?
“The job isn’t finished, I mean it is finished for Tucker Carlson.
“What are you booing about, like you think that’s not reasonable? Give me a break.”
“You say I’m over the hill,” he added later.
“Don Lemon would say that’s a man in his prime.”
