GUN-toting rep Lauren Boebert wore a Let's go Brandon dress in a swipe at AOC's Met Gala gown to celebrate the Republican party's election wins this week.
The outspoken lawmaker was pictured in the outfit on Thursday after meeting with Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago.
Sharing the picture on Twitter, Lauren wrote: "It’s not a phrase, it’s a movement!"
In September Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attracted criticism for her choice of "Tax the Rich" dress as she attended an event where tables cost up to $300,000.
Democrat AOC said at the time: "We can't just play along, but we need to break the fourth wall and challenge some of the institutions, and while the Met is known for its spectacle, we should have a conversation about it."
"Let's Go Brandon" has become used by conservatives as a code for saying "F–k Joe Biden."
It came from an October 2 NASCAR race at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama when driver Brandon Brown was struggling to answer a media question given how loud a nearby crowd was chanting.
The reporter suggested the crowd was cheering "Let's go Brandon" but it later became clear that the crowd was instead screaming "F–k Joe Biden."
Rapper Bryson Gray’s song Let’s Go Brandon then overtook Adele’s new single in the charts, despite the anti-Biden song's music video being banned on YouTube.
And Republican lawmaker Ted Cruz shared a video of him chanting "Let's Go Brandon" at a baseball game.
Boebert wore the dress on the same week Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the tight race to be Governor of Virginia.
McAuliffe, who served as governor from 2014 to 2018, failed to stave off disaster in a state that has become reliable Democratic territory in recent years.
Joe Biden carried Virginia by a comfortable 10 percentage points last year, but Youngkin’s campaign has succeeded, with Youngkin becoming the first Republican to win a statewide race since 2009.
“This is a moment for Virginians to push back on this left, liberal, progressive agenda,” Youngkin, a former private equity executive, told a rally at an airport hangar outside Richmond.
TRUMP 'LOVED IT'
Boebert's communication director Ben Stout told Fox News: "It's not just a phrase, it's a movement, right?
"And people are sick and tired of this administration and all the destructive things they've done, especially to our economy, and the way that they express that right now is with ‘Let's go, Brandon'."
Stout said the dress "made Trump smile", adding: "He loved it."
The dress was reportedly designed by the same person behind Joy Villa's "Make America Great Again" outfit.
