‘Just like we drew it up’: Biden pokes fun at Super Bowl, Taylor Swift conspiracy theories

President Joe Biden poked fun at conspiracy theories about the NFL and Taylor Swift after the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl on Sunday night.

“Just like we drew it up,” Biden wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

The post featured a meme of “Dark Brandon,” which depicts Biden with lasers shooting out of his eyes.

The Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 58 on Sunday night in Las Vegas, 25-22, to become the first team in 19 seasons to repeat as Super Bowl champions. They have won three titles in the last half decade.

Swift attended the Super Bowl to support boyfriend Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Chiefs. The pop star has also been the center of right-wing conspiracy theories in recent weeks.

Conspiracies: Some Republicans fear Taylor Swift could influence the election for Biden. Here’s why.

Rigged game, rigged elections

Some of the Republican conspiracies surrounding Swift have included that she is some sort of Pentagon plant, propped up by secret liberal forces to swing the 2024 presidential election.

Fox News commentator Sean Hannity accused Swift of misunderstanding Republican values, suggested she doesn’t properly understand Biden’s policies and history, and warned her against endorsing him. 

Influential right-wing commentator Jack Posobiec also argued that Swift and Kelce’s relationship was a PR-driven effort designed to boost the NFL. Posobiec also complained that Swift was going to turn out white liberal female voters for Biden. 

Republicans are worried that Swift, whose fanbase tends to be younger and more liberal could swing the election in favor of Democrats if she endorses Biden in the upcoming election. Swift endorsed the president during his bid in 2020 but has not made any endorsements for the 2024 presidential election.

Biden’s campaign also released its first video on TikTok during the Super Bowl, where Biden also took jabs at the conspiracy theories.

The video featured Biden answering several questions about the big game, including if there was a plan in “deviously plotting to rig the season so the Chiefs would make the Super Bowl or the Chiefs just being a good football team?”

“I’d get in trouble if I told you,” Biden jokingly replied.
