    The 34-year-old Kansas City Chiefs tight end joined his teammates in meeting President Joe Biden over the weekend. He revealed that the security at the White House was not quite happy with his visit, and even threatened to tase him. Here’s what he said.

    During a brief moment at the podium alongside President Joe Biden, Travis Kelce joked about a waning he got from the security at the White House last year about approaching the podium. “My fellow Americans. It’s nice to see you all yet again. I’m not gonna lie, President Biden, they told me if I came up here I’d get tased. So, I’m gonna go back to my spot,” he said.

    Later on his podcast, he threw further light on the incident. On the June 5 episode of his New Heights podcast, Kelce revealed that the warning from the Secret Service was genuine. “That’s real. The Secret Service that’s all over the White House, they weren’t too happy with me. They weren’t too happy with me on my second time visiting,” he said.

    Kelce further asserted that he lacked proper identification during his previous visit, which is why the security services has a sharp response to him. “Last time, I was talking about how I had an expired ID… I caught s–t for that,” he said.

    Kelce is a man of dignity, and staying true to that, he was determined to avoid past mistakes. He ensured to being his passport along during his White House visit this time. “I made sure, because of what happened last time and how embarrassed I was for going to the White House with an expired ID, I made sure that I brought my passport with me this time. I was doing things the right way because everyone has to do that at the White House,” he said during the podcast.

    Travis Kelce revealed that several Secret Service members were waiting for him when he reached the White House. He recalled getting a stern warning from them. “When I walked in, we had about four or five Secret Service members come up to me and go, ‘You know that if you go up to that podium we are authorized to tase you. It is actually ordered for us to tase you,’” he said.

    The Chiefs’ tight end added that he had no idea President Biden would invite him on stage to speak this time. “He walked right up and the first thing he said was [to] give me the floor. I felt a taser aimed at me when I was up there the whole time.”

    Kelce said he is grateful for the honor. “Any time that I get a chance to get recognized by the President of the United States and get to go with my teammates, and a group of men and women that I had success with to the point where we get to get acknowledged, man, I’m doing it every single time. No matter who’s up there at the helm, no matter what’s going on in this world, I think it’s just such a cool opportunity,” he added.
