An Oregon father who said ”Let’s Go Brandon” during the annual White House NORAD Santa-tracking phone call went into full “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) mode on Bannon’s War Room.
Now, there’s a surprise!
Wearing the infamous red baseball cap, he said – without evidence, of course – that the election was “100% stolen” and Trump is the rightful president.
In the episode uploaded on Monday, Steve Bannon asked Jared Schmeck about being “crushed by the mainstream media” over Biden’s Christmas Eve phone call.
“It was innocent enough at the beginning. We call NORAD every year. My kids and I do. It’s become a tradition. They just want to know when Santa Claus is coming to our area,” Schmeck began while wearing a MAGA hat.
“When I called, the volunteer who picked up told me that first lady Jill Biden was taking calls and asked if we wanted to talk to her,” he continued.
Schmeck then said he assumed it would be “a pre-recorded” Christmas message and agreed to talk.

He said he asked his “boy” to start filming the moment, “just in case it ended up being legit.”
Long story short, it was legit as both the president and first lady picked up the phone.
“It was clear that it wasn’t a recording – I didn’t know that it was being live-streamed at that time. And throughout the conversation, it popped into my head, and I guess the rest is history.”
When Bannon asked Schmeck what was going on in his mind after he said the controversial phrase (here’s what it means) he said he was “pretty surprised” but thought it was “funny.”
“We had a really good laugh about it. I know it was said in a joking manner, in a humorous manner, but it’s a very serious thing, “he said.
Schmeck said that this was his “chance” to voice his disapproval of Biden and his administration – and took issue with media reports that said he didn’t support Donald Trump.
“I am a Christian man – for me, it’s God first and foremost. I don’t follow anyone man blindly. Some of the media has run with that and said I don’t support Donald Trump, but that’s absolutely false. Donald Trump is my president, and he should still be president right now. The election was 100% stolen. So, I just want to make that clear.”
Schmeck also said that “Let’s Go Brandon” represents the “entirety” of some conservatives’ frustration with Biden, “the administration, the leftist mob, cancel culture, end the mainstream media.”
He also spoke on issues he feels the Biden administration is neglecting, such as supply chain issues, inflation rates, and the federal vaccine mandates.
This isn’t the first time a presidential Santa Tracker call has gone off the chains.
In 2018, a seven-year-old girl named Collman and former President Donald Trump raised concerns when he implied to the young girl that Santa Claus didn’t exist.
When he asked what her Christmas plans were, Trump followed the conversation with: “Are you still a believer in Santa?”
Trump didn’t appear to notice the issue with telling a child that Santa Claus did not exist and ended up laughing to himself before adding: “Well, you just enjoy yourself.”
