During a White House Christmas event, on live television for the whole world to see, one caller into the show was able to slip a sneaky little “Let’s Go Brandon” into the affair.
On the right side of the aisle, there was laughter. Heck, even President Biden seemed to get a bit of a chuckle out of it, responding to the man by actually repeating the phrase back to himself.
The whole incident was little more than a blip on the radar of the pop culture in the days leading up to Christmas…until the liberal media got involved.
Mainstream media journalists have since treated the phrase as “vulgar” and “vitriol,” going so far as to compare people who use the phrase to ISIS sympathizers.
The pattern continued after reporters identified the man as Jared Schmeck, a former Oregon police officer who has since insisted that the phrase was made “in a joking manner.”Trending:
Some outlets, however, appeared to disagree, with titles like NBC’s “Parent uses right-wing slur during Biden call with NORAD Santa tracker” and ABC’s “Father uses vulgar insult during holiday call with President Joe Biden.”
Slate also referred to the phrase as a “right-wing slur” in describing the situation.Advertisement - story continues below
“What has become a traditional White House holiday call with children tracking Santa Claus took an awkward turn this year when one father used the opportunity to insult the president using a slur that has become popular in right-wing circles,” Slate wrote.
Left-wing media darlings CNN went even further.
CNN White House correspondent Jeremy Diamond tweeted, “If you think it’s appropriate to tell someone — anyone, really — to go f*** themselves after they gave your kids the time of day on Christmas Eve, it says a lot more about your personal character than anything else. That is all.”
Senior reporter Edward Isaac-Dovere followed up, writing, “Consider the mentality here of the father whose child is excited to talk about Santa Claus and then also gets to talk to the president and First Lady, but he waits out the end of the call to sneak in a cutesy way of flipping off the president on Christmas Eve.”
The caller, who identified himself as “Jared” when he called in, has now reportedly received threats from angry leftists who can’t seem to see that this was all a joke.
