You can't troll the President with 'Let's go, Brandon' and then play the victim

You are probably familiar with this story about the Oregonian who made a crude, backhanded insult to the President. Jared Schmeck, a Trumper, (although he denies it despite his wearing a MAGA hat) lives in my county.

Now Schmeck is upset that there are consequences and opprobrium for his graceless Christmas Eve comments to the President and First Lady. Schmeck can't seem to grasp that the repercussions of his use of freedom of speech is that others might use their freedom of speech in response.


Dean Obeidallah writes in CNN:
Schmeck is now doing the cliché conservative move of saying he's being unfairly criticized because people have slammed his "joke." Schmeck complained to The Oregonian about threatening calls he received after the livestream, saying, "now I am being attacked for utilizing my freedom of speech."

Aww, poor "victim" Schmeck. Apparently, he thinks he should be able to tell Biden to basically go f**k himself while on a family friendly holiday call, but no one should be able to take issue with his actions.

Sorry, that's not how freedom of speech works. If you want to troll a president to apparently make others on the right happy, you can expect criticism. If you don't want criticism because you are painfully thin-skinned, then don't say "Let's go Brandon" on a live Christmas Eve special. It's as simple as that.

    This is a big story on Fox. What a hoot.

    Interesting. When De Niro said, "F*ck Trump," twice, he got a raucous standing O.

    For De Niro, free speech meant increased popularity.

    My guess is that, in the end, Schmeck will do well out of this in one way or another.

    What this proves, again, is that antiSwampers give Blue MAGAs freedom to speak and that when they speak freely they are hated and harassed.

    Life in America.

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha. We can laugh, even if you can't.

    Heeheeheeheeheehee, ahhhhhhhhhhh.

    Robert De Niro hardly needed to opine on Trump to become better known. He was already famous and popular unlike Jared Schmeck. Unlike Schmeck, De Niro didn't whine or complain when he was criticized for his opinions in some circles--including FOX News.
