After days of liberal media smears both online and in person, the man responsible for breaking the internet on Christmas Day has come out strong in support of Donald Trump, his MAGA agenda, and recalling of the 2020 presidential election.
The father from Oregon trolled Joe Biden on Christmas Eve by saying “Let’s go Brandon” at the end of a NORAD Santa tracker call says the 2020 presidential election was “100% stolen.”
Jared Schmeck, a 35-year-old father of four in Central Point, Oregon, talked about the now-viral moment with Trump ally Steve Bannon on his War Room podcast.
Schmeck told Bannon some media reports falsely claim he does not support former President Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump is my president, and he should still be president right now. The election was 100% stolen. So, I just want to make that clear,” he said.
Schmeck previously said he is not a “Trumper” but a “free-thinking American and follower of Jesus Christ,” according to a Christmas Day reporting. Schmeck works for an electric company and is a former Medford police officer who resigned in July 2018 after six years, which noted he declined to say why he left the force.
But it appears reporters had Schmeck all wrong.
The prankster donned a “Make America Great Again” hat for his interview with Bannon, similarly spoke of his faith in this interview.
“I am a Christian man,” he said.
Jared Schmeck, displacing Kyle Rittenhouse with top billing on the MAGA talk-show circuit, says his prank call with Biden was his chance to “express my displeasure,” then says “Trump is my president” and “the election was 100% stolen.” Guess it wasn’t just a “joke”after all. pic.twitter.com/biZ6r0pAyH

The “Let’s go Brandon” phrase originated on Oct. 2 after an interview between an NBC News sports reporter and Brandon Brown, a NASCAR driver. NASCAR fans behind the reporter chanted, “F*** Joe Biden,” but the reporter thought they were saying, “Let’s go Brandon.”
Schmeck said he did not actually expect to get on the phone with Biden and first lady Jill Biden, but once he did, he wanted to voice his “disapproval” with the president and his administration. He cited issues such as the Afghanistan withdrawal, abortion policies, and the economy as underlying frustrations.
Schmeck also told Bannon he is receiving messages of support but also “threats” on his phone.
“I know they are trying to get to me. I know they’re trying to get to me. They’re trying to get to my family, my place of business. And it’s not going to work. They can keep trying, but at the end of the day, this is too big a deal,” he said.
It’s quite alarming when one man who executed a harmless prank on the president via a phone call is now subject to vicious attacks that could cause his life to end.
