President Joe Biden posted a one-sentence tweet after the Kansas City Chiefs’ thrilling Super Bowl victory Sunday to mock right-wing conspiracy theorists who believe pop star Taylor Swift’s romance with Travis Kelce is a ploy to help Democrats win re-election this year.
Biden posted an image of the “Dark Brandon” meme – a photo of the president with red lasers for eyes – on both X and Instagram along with the caption: “As we designed it.”
The far-fetched conspiracy meme built up to Super Bowl LVIII.
Online commentators, mostly on the far right, are pushing the tin-foil theory that the Super Bowl match was rigged and Swift, who they claim has a fake relationship with Kelce, would be endorsing Biden for the White House.
In a TikTok video, the 81-year-old US president and his campaign team mocked conspiracy theorists just before the Super Bowl.
A staffer asked if the commander in chief was “conspiring” so the Chiefs could make the Super Bowl or if the Chiefs are just a good team to which Biden replied, “I’d be in trouble if I told you” before the clip cut back to the meme “Dark Brandon”.
The creepy meme originated as a right-wing play on the anti-Biden slogan “Let’s Go Brandon,” but was reclaimed by Democrats and embraced by the president’s campaign, which used it to play pranks on NFL-Swift conspiracy theorists on Sunday.
Swift endorsed Biden when he ran for the White House in 2020 against then-President Donald Trump. The two men are expected to face each other again this year.
Swift watched her boyfriend’s thrilling 25-22 overtime Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas, where the pair, both 34, sealed the win with a fairytale finish on the field.
Swift was in Las Vegas to watch her boyfriend and the Chiefs get past the San Francisco 49ers in a thrilling 25-22 overtime win.
The pair, both 34, sealed the win with a kiss on the Allegiant Stadium field in a fairytale ending.
