Viral 'Let's Go Brandon' Dad: Biden Xmas Prank Call Was 'My God-Given Right'
Jared Schmeck tricked Joe Biden into saying 'Let's Go Brandon' during live broadcast
The Oregon dad, who made headlines over Christmas for tricking Joe Biden into saying "Let's Go Brandon" during a live broadcast, has spoken out to say the prank call was his "God-given right."
Jared Schmeck says the Xmas prank was a way to express his frustration with Democrat Biden’s failing agenda.
The 35-year-old father of four has come under attack from the left and the mainstream press for ending his call by delivering the wildly popular anti-Biden slogan.
Schmeck ended his call with Biden by saying, "Merry Christmas and Let's Go Brandon."
However, Joe Biden bizarrely responded by saying, "Let's Go Brandon, I agree."
But despite the backlash he has withstood since last Friday’s call, former police officer Schmeck is defiant.
Schmeck stated he is well aware that “Let’s Go Brandon” is a substitute for “f*ck Joe Biden.”
He said he used the phrase as a joke.
Still, he insists that he has every right to say it, regardless.
"I understand there is a vulgar meaning to ‘Let’s go, Brandon,’ but I’m not that simple-minded, no matter how I feel about him,” Schmeck told the Oregonian.
"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,” he told the paper.

Schmeck added that Biden’s constant COVD vaccine mandates, the supply chain mess, and failed economic policies have caused major frustration.
“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 said.
