2. This asshole

From Christmas Eve to Christmas Day, Schmeck’s parting remark to Biden fueled fury on social media.

U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-CA, wrote on Twitter, “I refuse to believe we are this indecent as people. Not on Christmas Eve. And not to a person who lost his wife and daughter at Christmastime. We are better than this. Be kind and #Merry Christmas.”

Another on Twitter wrote: “Imagine being a grown man so infantile and disrespectful that you say the slur ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ to the president in front of your own kids and dozens of others. This is a sad time.”

Others lambasted his remark. One person wrote on Twitter, “Some of us celebrate Christmas Eve w gratitude for the birth of Jesus, others shout obscenities to entertain their son and @YouTube audience.”

“Wow. #jaredschmeck is gonna trend for the first time in his life, and not in a good way,” wrote another on the social media site.

Schmeck called his remark a “joke,” and a reflection of his frustration with Biden’s policies, including the federal vaccine mandates, inflation and global supply chain problems that have caused shortages in consumer products.
