Joe Biden received a brutal surprise when visiting a Chicago suburb.
He was reportedly there to urge people to get vaccinated.
There were plenty of people in “deep-blue Illinois” who were unhappy about Biden’s visit, Western Journal reports.
Protesters lined the road and trucks honked their approval.
Video footage shows protesters chanting “Let’s go, Brandon” as well as one person holding a sign that read “Let’s go, Brandon.”
The phrase has become popular after NBC reporter Kelli Stavast mistakenly believed NASCAR fans at Talladega Superspeedway were chanting “Let’s go, Brandon” in support of driver Brandon Brown.
In reality, fans at sporting events across the country have been chanting, “F*** Joe Biden.”
Reporter Daniel Williams in Chicago shared a video to Twitter:

More from Western Journal:
Just in case you missed the joke: Many of those protesting the president have taken the simple, frank and evocative chant “f*** Joe Biden” as their slogan.
I know, I know — mind my language. I would have preferred us all to paraphrase William F. Buckley and shout, “We’re standing athwart the 46th president, yelling Stop, at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience with those who so urge it!” Alas, “f*** Joe Biden!” it is. You can also probably see why no one puts me in charge of these things.
Ah, but yes, Brandon. This chant tends to break out at sporting events, including at the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Talladega earlier this month. Brandon Brown scored his first win there and one reporter misinterpreted the crowd’s sentiments:
Warning: Some of the video footage contain explicit language that some viewers may find offensive.

No, the grandstands at the 2.66-mile oval at Talladega aren’t known for a surfeit of progressive Democrats, but Elk Grove Village, Illinois, isn’t exactly that far outside of the Democratic stronghold of Chicago. In fact, it’s adjacent to O’Hare Airport, which serves a city that would sooner elect a rabid communist otter than a Republican. And it’s not as if Biden did much to convince the area’s residents during his visit:
