Jared Schmeck is not impressed with the backlash he's received after insulting President Joe Biden on Christmas Eve.
During a phone call with the Santa tracker, Schmeck said, "Let's go, Brandon" which has become GOP code for "F*ck Joe Biden."
"I mean no disrespect to him," the former Medford police officer said.
But he bristled at the backlash he received.
“And now I am being attacked for utilizing my freedom of speech,” Schmeck said. “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."
Schmeck would not tell the newspaper why he resigned from the police force in 2018, but said he "stood 100% behind what I did and what I said.”
