Joe Biden's first Christmas as the POTUS was marred by a phone call to one Jared Schmeck — as the father of four told him 'Let's Go Brandon' during the NORAD Santa tracker event. The notorious phrase, which is basically the right-winger's way of saying 'F**k Joe Biden', has gained prominence in the past few months. On December 24, he awkwardly brushed off the prankster on call by saying, "I Agree", but social media did not let the President get away that easy. Memes and jokes flooded Twitter where Biden was further trolled for "agreeing" to the infamous phrase

Meanwhile, former police officer and Oregon dad Jared Schmeck earned flak online for his disrespectful behavior. But, he later clarified that he meant it as a joke and did not mean any disrespect towards the President. "At the end of the day, I have nothing against Mr. Biden, but I am frustrated because I think he can be doing a better job," Schmeck later stated. He also added that he is a devout follower of Jesus Christ and not a Trump supporter.

Jared Schmeck, who hails from Oregon, is a 35-year-old electric company employee who used to be a cop in the past. Presently, he works at the local firm Winema Electric along with several other family members. Following his 'Let's Go Brandon' stunt, the Yelp review page of Winema Electric was flooded with comments condemning Schmeck, while there were also many who emerged in his support. 

The father received the call from the POTUS and the First Lady on Christmas and appeared to have a heartful conversation about his children and their Christmas demands. Schmeck shared what each of his kids has asked for Christmas and also had his son interact with the President. Later, as the President and First Lady wished them 'Merry Christmas', he finished the call saying, "Let's Go Brandon". He later uploaded a video of the entire conversation on his personal YouTube channel. 



 

Addressing his 'joke' later, Jared Schmeck told Oregonian, "I thought it would be automated. We just waited on hold and then they answered. And I thought, 'wow, this is real.'" He continued, "He seems likes he's a cordial guy. There's no animosity or anything like that. It was merely just an innocent jest to also express my God-given right to express my frustrations in a joking manner... I love him just like I love any other brother or sister." 

"And now I am being attacked for utilizing my freedom of speech. I understand there is a vulgar meaning to 'Lets go Brandon,' but I'm not that simple minded, no matter how I feel about him," Schemck said, mentioning that he is frustrated with a lot of the President's policies, including vaccine mandates, inflation and supply chain issues.
