On Sunday night, President Biden playfully teased MAGA Republicans, making light of conspiracy theories related to the NFL and pop icon Taylor Swift following the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory.
On X, formerly Twitter, Biden posted, “Just like we drew it up,” next to the meme known as “Dark Brandon,” which showed the president with lasers coming out of his eyes.

Sunday night, the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers in overtime to win their third Super Bowl in five years.
Since Swift and Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce started dating last year, the game has attracted more attention this year.
Following the Chiefs’ playoff victory over the Baltimore Ravens last month, which secured the team’s position in the second consecutive Super Bowl, the conservative media was inundated with unverified conspiracy theories about Swift, the NFL, and the Democratic Party.
Additionally, once The New York Times revealed that Biden was trying to get Swift, who supported the president in 2020, to endorse him, those speculations gained traction.
According to some conspiracy theories, the NFL rigged the playoffs in favor of the Chiefs so that Swift could endorse Biden following the big game and aid in his reelection. Swift has not yet openly endorsed a candidate for president, but she was spotted celebrating the Super Bowl victory with Kelce on the field following the game.
Joe Scarborough, the host of MSNBC, commented on Biden’s tweet during Monday’s “Morning Joe” show.
“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 stated.
During Super Bowl Sunday, the Biden campaign also disclosed that it has joined the TikTok video-streaming site. In the first video, Biden rattled off responses to several inquiries concerning the Super Bowl, but he refrained from taking sides.
Biden joked, “I’d get in trouble if I told you,” in response to the question of whether there was a scheme to “deviously plot to rig the season so the Chiefs would make the Super Bowl or the Chiefs just being a good football team.”
