After the Kansas City Chiefs brought home the trophy with a thrilling Super Bowl victory, President Joe Biden is making the best of it to his advantage. Ahead of the Super Bowl’s big game night, there were several conspiracy theories rife about the Super Bowl being rigged in the Kansas City Chiefs’ favor, as Taylor Swift‘s boyfriend Travis Kelce is a part of it.
Netizens suggested that after the Chiefs’ win, Taylor, a popular superstar in America, would endorse Biden in return and help him win the Presidential elections. While there was no basis to this conspiracy theory, Biden is making the best of it. The American President has pulled up an old meme to congratulate the Chiefs, while also teasing his critics with it.

Though it began as an internet joke, the meme soon turned into a tool for touting the president’s legislative achievements and campaigning for his reelection. While it intended to portray Biden in an evil light, the meme got associated with pro-Biden sentiments eventually — and the President and the White House have tactfully used it to their advantage.
Biden posting this photo now is seemingly to tease the conspiracy theorists who suggested that Biden will set up the Kansas City Chiefs’ win to get endorsed by Taylor Swift. Whether or not there’s any truth to these theories, we do not know. But irrespective of that, Biden is doing the best to use it for his social media campaigning ahead of the elections.
