The man who mocked Joe Biden to his face by saying “Let’s go, Brandon” during a live TV interview is now considering a run for office.
The best part of said interview was when Biden agreed with the man, errantly repeating the “Let’s go, Brandon” line. Watch the clip below, if you haven’t seen it.
From The Daily Wire:
The dad who called President Joe Biden on Christmas Eve and ended the conversation with “Let’s Go Brandon” has revealed he is considering a run for political office.
Jared Schmeck, an Oregon resident and former police officer, shared the news during an interview on “The Todd Starnes Show” on Tuesday.
Schmeck said, “I want to pray about it, see what God has for me. At the end of the day, I want His will for my life and the direction that it goes. And I strongly believe that standing up is the right thing to do here as long as that message that I’m portraying is glorifying His name. And yeah, I’ll see where it goes.”

Since his interview with Joe, Schmeck has received numerous death threats from far-left radicals.
From Conservative Brief:
“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,” former police officer Jared Schmeck, 35, who works for an electric company, said to The Oregonian. “I mean no disrespect to him.”
The dad said that since the incident there is more than people on Twitter attacking him. The dad said that he has received “vague but threatening” phone calls since the incident.
Schmeck said, “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.”
The aptly named Jared Schmeck appears to be a real piece of work. Jared, let’s celebrate the freedom of speech of everyone tearing you a new one and watching you now try to runaway and say you meant no disrespect like a pitiful little gimbus. Lol. Dick pic.twitter.com/ia8WFssBQ2

As if receiving threats wasn’t bad enough, turns out some of the tremendously good folks at MSNBC want the FBI to investigate Schmeck.
You know, because making a joke these days is pretty much illegal.
Host Nicole Wallace said, “So, what you heard there, was an Oregon dad, his four kids. He’s a self-described free-thinking American a follower of Jesus Christ. He called into the NORAD tracking center on Christmas eve. What he said, ‘let’s go Brandon’ means ‘eff Joe Biden’ in very, very, very thinly coded right-wing lexicon.”
She added, “That grown man, Jared Schmeck, later told the Oregonian that the comment was meant in jest before whining for days now about being attacked for utilizing his freedom of speech. The story could have ended there, though, right? But he went on Steve Bannon’s broadcast today, podcast, whatever he has. There he was, Jared Schmeck, wearing his MAGA hat.”
Wallace followed up by noting, “I don’t want where to start. Let me tell you why this matters. The asymmetry has always been what advantages the Trump right more than anything else ask. The asymmetry of saying f*** you to a sitting president on a call in front of your four kids – don’t look past this. Don’t look at this as a story about giving air time to a MAGA guy who goes on Steve Bannon’s podcast and says I won’t joking. Not only did I say eff you, Mr. President, I said more than that. This is the slow-motion insurrection, Jason, in full color.”
It looks like Schmeck is standing his ground…
“Let’s Go Brandon” dad isn’t backing down! https://t.co/L2HDTFaj3d
