The White House says it is trying ahead to internet hosting the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs once more — and it is not ruling out having the crew’s most-famous fan, Taylor Swift, tag alongside this time.
Asked at Monday’s press briefing if the pop star may come alongside as a “plus one” when the crew visits the White House to celebrate its second Super Bowl title in as many seasons, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded, “That’s going to be up to the Chiefs, and obviously their decision to figure out who’s going to come with them.”
“I can’t speak to attendance and who will be here,” Jean-Pierre added.
Swift is courting Chiefs tight finish Travis Kelce and celebrated on the sphere after his crew beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in time beyond regulation on Sunday in Las Vegas. She has been the topic of intense media protection all through the season, and even sparked anger amongst some conservatives who unfold baseless claims that Swift is a part of an elaborate plot to assist Democrats win the November election as a result of she may in the end endorse President Joe Biden‘s reelection bid.
Biden’s supporters have made mild of such solutions. The president’s private account even deadpanned on X instantly after the Super Bowl’s game-winning catch, “Just like we drew it up” over a picture of “Dark Brandon” — a meme that includes Biden with lasers for eyes.
Jean-Pierre additionally obtained in on the act, opening Monday’s White House briefing by saying she needed “to extend a big congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on their third Super Bowl win in just five seasons, and also congratulations to all the Swifties out there.”
“The president looks forward to welcoming them back once again to the White House to celebrate their latest victory,” she said.
When pressed on whether the players would be allowed to bring guests, Jean-Pierre said she wasn’t sure of the protocol.
“That’s a good question. I can’t answer that right now. But, look, we are looking forward to having them here, the Chiefs,” she mentioned.
The White House and Biden’s supporters aren’t the one ones blurring the traces between politics and pop stars.
Former President Donald Trump, the front-runner within the Republican presidential major, posted on-line forward of the Super Bowl that, if Swift had been to endorse Biden, it could be “disloyal to the person who made her a lot cash.” Trump continued that he was “chargeable for the Music Modernization Act,” which Congress permitted in 2018 with robust bipartisan support.
