Jared Schmeck, the man who told President Joe Biden, "Let's go Brandon" during a live phone call on Christmas Eve, says he believes it is time for people to "stand up" for what is right.
Schmeck, an Oregon father, says he appreciates the support he has received since his prank call to Biden.
"We have seen an increase in amount of support, and it means a lot, 'cause we all know the Left is loud, and they want you to feel alone, and I don't feel alone in this," he told conservative commentator Benny Johnson in an interview.

He said he has received not-so-supportive messages, including direct threats to himself and his family.
"I mean, it's the same playbook every time, but it's not so much the smearing and whatnot. It's the physical threats," he said. "Getting phone calls that are threatening … Other family members getting threats as well. People posting our address on the internet."
"I absolutely support everyone's right to have free speech as I did," Schmeck continued. "If you don't agree with me, I can respect that. But I cannot respect the nasty physical threats against our lives. That's not something that I can stand for."
Johnson asked Schmeck if he feels like a hero for making the call to Biden.

"I do not feel like a hero in any way, shape, or form. I'm just doing what I believe is right," he answered. "I do believe that we have to stand up, and given that opportunity, I ran with it."

Schmeck indicated in an interview Tuesday on the Todd Starnes Show that he is open to the idea of running for political office one day.
“I want to get through this. I want to pray about it, see what God has for me,” he said, according to a clip published by Mediaite. “At the end of the day, I want his will for my life and the direction that it goes ... 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 once I get out of this tornado.”
