President Joe Biden welcomed the Super Bowl winners, the Kansas City Chiefs, to the White House on Friday, putting a football helmet on his head and briefly letting tight end Travis Kelce, Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, speak. .

Kelce was joined by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, coach Andy Reid, kicker Harrison Butker (the player involved in a commencement speech controversy) and other teammates for the Chiefs’ second trip to the White House in two years.

“I’d have Travis come here, but God knows what he’d say,” Biden joked after delivering a brief speech, peppered with jokes about the 2024 election about being “back to back” winners.

Kelce reluctantly took the podium: “I’m not going to lie, President Biden, they told me if I came up here, I would get Tasered.”

When the show ended, a reporter shouted loudly, “Where’s Taylor Swift?” as the pop star did not attend the South Lawn ceremony.

The Super Bowl-winning team presented President Joe Biden with a Kansas City Chiefs helmet and briefly smashed it on his head. “Thank you very much,” he said.

The Chiefs also presented Biden with a gift, a Kansas City helmet, which the president eventually put on his head.

“Thank you very much,” Biden said.

He was able to take it off before chatting with Mahomes and Kelce at the end of the ceremony.

The event at the White House comes after the team’s kicker, Butker, gave a controversial commencement speech at Benedictine College, a small Catholic university in Kansas, earlier this month.

Butker told the graduates that they had been told “the most diabolical lies.”

“Some of you may go on to have successful careers in the world, but I would venture to guess that most of you are more excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world,” Butker said. ‘I can tell you that my beautiful wife Isabelle would be the first to say that her life truly began when she began to live her vocation as a wife and mother.’

Butker added that his wife adopted “one of the most important titles of all.” She’s a housewife.

The kicker also made anti-LGBTQ references and noted that there is a “mortal sin of pride that a month is dedicated to.”

And he also attacked Biden’s response to COVID-19, while adding that a number of things the president supported “negatively impacted” the lives of graduates.

“Things like abortion, IVF, surrogacy, euthanasia, as well as growing support for degenerate cultural values ​​and media, arise from the pervasiveness of disorder,” Butker said.

Swift is currently on the European leg of her successful Eras Tour, having performed in Madrid, Spain on Thursday night and heading to Lyon, France, on Sunday.

He flew from Tokyo to Las Vegas in February to watch Kelce and his teammates win their third Super Bowl in just five years.

In February they beat the San Francisco 49ers, the same team they defeated in 2020.

Before the Super Bowl, there was speculation that a Kansas City victory could predict a Biden victory this November, with the same two teams playing in the Super Bowl and the same two presidential candidates on the ballot as four years ago.

While Swift indicated she would vote for Biden in 2020, she has not yet officially endorsed his re-election bid.

The pop star comes from the battleground state of Pennsylvania, which could boost the president’s chances there.

The Chiefs also beat the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2023 Super Bowl, a disappointment to Dr. Jill Biden, a big fan of the team who attended the game.

Kelce’s brother Jason was playing for the Eagles when they were defeated by the Chiefs.

Jason Kelce retired from the NFL earlier this year.
