The messages “LET’S GO BRANDON” and “TRUMP 2024 BABYYY” were displayed on a traffic sign in a construction zone in downtown Tucson early Tuesday.
The sign was changed early Tuesday morning to read “TRUMP 2024 BABYYY” and “LET’S GO BRANDON” near West Saint Mary’s Road and North Granada Ave. 
Several Twitter users shared photos and videos of the messages that were displayed near the intersection of North Granada Avenue and West Saint Mary’s Road during morning rush hour. 
This is beautiful. A Tucson traffic sign is hacked with two special messages. And this is in liberal Tucson! https://t.co/bJqSqgFeA0
The message “Let’s go Brandon” refers to a viral meme that recently spread through social media and is being used as a code to mean “F— you, Biden.”
Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus and a spokesperson for Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility both took to Twitter to share that DTM had been made aware of the sign, which has since been changed to its original traffic message. 
The incident comes on the same day as Tucson’s general elections

For Star subscribers: A killing and an attack on a school marked last year’s general election week in Tucson. Sadly, the risks of political violence remain now, due to claims of stolen elections and demonization of opponents.

The phrase has become a stand-in for insulting President Joe Biden.
