Each year, the President of the United States takes calls from children on Christmas Eve. This year, a man in Oregon named Jared Schmeck hijacked his children’s call to slur President Joe Biden.
That would make Schmeck a pariah regardless of what political position one took in standard times. But these are not regular times. Schmeck is now a pathetic loser on the Left and somewhat of a hero to some on the Right.
While he claimed to ‘not be political,’ Schmeck is attempting to capitalize on his fifteen minutes of fame. The former police officer told Todd Starnes that he wants to meet Trump and run for political office.
Starnes absurdly asked his guest, “Do you have any aspirations for higher office? I know people have been talking about that already.”
“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. I do feel like God put me in this position for a reason. 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.”
The Oregon man was then asked if he would like to meet Donald Trump. “I would be honored,” Schmeck responded.
