A San Francisco firefighter has gone viral after he was spotted wearing a shirt with the anti-Biden phrase “Let’s Go Brandon” written across the back while on duty.
On Saturday morning, an outraged local spotted the fireman and posted pictures on social media.
The man tried to get the city to respond to the joke by tagging San Francisco Mayor London Breed, District 8 supervisor Rafael Mandelman, and the San Francisco Fire department.
The man asked in his post, “Is this the new uniform of SFFD?”

The San Francisco Fire Department responded they will take action against the firefighter over his shirt.
“This is not the official uniform of the SFFD.
“This will be handled immediately.
“Thank you for bringing it to our attention.”
The department added later:
“Today, 09-24-2022, the San Francisco Fire Department was made aware via social media of an employee wearing a non-SFFD tee-shirt while on duty.
“This violates the Department’s uniform policy and does not reflect the views and opinions of the San Francisco Fire Department.
“The Department took immediate action once made aware.
“The SFFD has followed internal and City policies to handle this incident.”

According to KRON:
One San Francisco Fire Department firefighter could be in hot water after a citizen spotted them wearing shirts with political affiliations.
On Saturday, witnesses saw a group of firefighters working on a hydrant.
It was not out of the ordinary until witnesses noticed something a little bit different about the uniforms the firefighters were wearing.
