Biden Trolls Trump Supporters
Biden thinks he’s funny.
President Biden took a jab at MAGA Republicans on Sunday night, playfully addressing the swirl of conspiracy theories surrounding the NFL and pop icon Taylor Swift following the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory.
In a post on X, previously known as Twitter, Biden humorously commented, “Just like we drew it up,” accompanied by the popular “Dark Brandon” meme portraying him with lasers emanating from his eyes.

The Chiefs secured their third Super Bowl title in five years with an overtime touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers earlier that Sunday night, adding to the excitement surrounding the game. The buzz intensified due to Swift’s romantic involvement with Chiefs’ standout tight end Travis Kelce, which began last year.
Following the Chiefs’ advancement to the Super Bowl for the second consecutive year with a playoff victory over the Baltimore Ravens last month, conservative media channels were flooded with baseless conspiracy theories linking Swift, the NFL, and the Democratic Party. These theories gained traction, particularly after reports surfaced suggesting Biden sought an endorsement from Swift, who had supported him in the 2020 election.
Some of the unfounded claims insinuated that the NFL manipulated playoff outcomes to benefit the Chiefs, purportedly in anticipation of Swift endorsing Biden post-Super Bowl. While Swift was indeed seen celebrating the Chiefs’ victory alongside Kelce, she has yet to publicly endorse any presidential candidate.
Commenting on Biden’s tweet, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough characterized it as a playful jab at the fervent MAGA supporters who propagated the rigged-election narrative. He suggested that Biden’s post was aimed at mocking those who embraced such conspiracy theories.
Amid the Super Bowl festivities, Biden’s campaign also announced its debut on the video-sharing platform TikTok. The inaugural video featured Biden responding to various Super Bowl-related questions but sidestepping queries about any potential scheming to ensure the Chiefs’ success. With a hint of humor, Biden quipped, “I’d get in trouble if I told you,” leaving his stance on the matter open to interpretation.
