Biden trolls MAGA Republicans with Super Bowl tweet
President Biden trolled MAGA Republicans Sunday night, poking fun at conspiracy theories surrounding the NFL and pop sensation Taylor Swift after the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl.
“Just like we drew it up,” Biden wrote on X, formerly Twitter, alongside the “Dark Brandon” meme depicting the president with lasers shooting out of his eyes.
The Chiefs won their third Super Bowl within five years earlier Sunday night with a touchdown in overtime to beat the San Francisco 49ers.
The game garnered some extra buzz this year as Swift and Chiefs’ star tight end Travis Kelce began dating last year.
After the Chiefs clinched a spot in their second consecutive Super Bowl last month with a win over the Baltimore Ravens in the playoffs, conservative media was flooded with unproven conspiracy theories around Swift, the NFL and the Democratic Party. Those theories also jumped up after The New York Times reported that Biden was seeking an endorsement from Swift, who backed the president in 2020.
Some of the conspiracies suggested that the NFL rigged the playoffs for the Chiefs so that Swift could help get Biden reelected with an endorsement after the big game. Swift could be seen celebrating the Super Bowl win with Kelce on the field after the game, but she has yet to publicly endorse anyone in the presidential election.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough weighed in on Biden’s tweet on Monday’s episode of “Morning Joe.”
“This is of course mocking all the MAGA, ultra-MAGA freaks that were saying that this was all rigged from the very beginning and then this is him mocking the snowflakes,” he said.
Biden’s campaign also revealed during the Super Bowl Sunday that it had joined video-streaming platform, TikTok. The first video showed Biden rattling off answers to a series of questions about the Super Bowl, but he declined to pick sides.
When asked 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,” Biden jokingly said, “I’d get in trouble if I told you.”
