President Joe Biden was reportedly met with chants of "Let's Go Brandon" upon landing in Kentucky on Wednesday.
Biden traveled to Kentucky to survey the damage left by several severe tornadoes that killed at least 74 in the state.
“I’m with the president in Mayfield. Looking at destruction. There is a Trump flag and when Biden got out of the motorcade someone called: ‘Let’s go, Brandon,'” BBC correspondent Tara McKelvey tweeted.

The chant originated in October when a reporter mistakenly heard "Let's Go Brandon" in support of NASCAR driver Brandon Brown when people were actually chanting "F*** Joe Biden."
Lexington Herald-Leader reporter Austin Horn also reported hearing the chant in Kentucky.
“Two ‘Let’s go Brandon’s from the crowd as Biden gets out,” Horn tweeted.

While in Kentucky, Biden declared the tornado a federal disaster and said federal aid will cover "100% of the cost" of picking up the rubble.
“And you can see it in people's faces, what they’re really looking for — and look around, I say to the press — is just to be able to put their head down on a pillow, be able to close their eyes, take a deep breath, go to sleep, and make sure the kids are OK,” Biden said during a press conference. “That’s what people are looking for right now. A lot of hard work has to happen in the next two or three months to bring it all the way back.”
Some videos on TikTok showed residents chanting "Let's Go Brandon" at the president's motorcade and flipping off the president as he surveyed the area.

"F*** this son of a b****," one man said in a video on TikTok. "And every one of his damn Gestapo. Let's Go Brandon."
