Joe Biden Backs Dark Brandon’s Right-Wing Conspiracy Theory About Taylor Swift and the Super Bowl

Joe Biden trolled right-wing conspiracy theorists Sunday night by sharing a meme that implied he and Taylor Swift colluded to bring about the Kansas City Chiefs victory in the 2024 Super Bowl.

Swift was spotted with several A-list friends at Allegiant Stadium cheering on her Chiefs boyfriend Travis Kelce as his team beat the San Francisco 49ers in overtime.

Shortly after the race, Mr Biden shared a “Dark Brandon” meme, which showed laser beams shooting from the president's eyes.

“Just as we drafted it,” Biden's post captioned.

Biden's post appears to be in response to a conspiracy theory floated by Republicans that Swift's popularity will be used by Democrats to sway the 2024 presidential election.

The Dark Brandon meme is used by the president's critics to mock his perceived weakness, ironically portraying him as a dark and menacing force. Brandon is a reference to an incident in late 2021 when a NASCAR reporter apparently misheard a crowd chanting “f*** Joe Biden” as “Let's go Brandon.”

This is not the first time Mr Biden has sought to debunk the meme – it was used as the image for the 404 error page on his official campaign website launched last summer.

Swift endorsed the Biden-Harris ticket in 2020 and previously suggested she could have done more to criticize Donald Trump in 2016.

Last year, the nonprofit recorded more than 35,000 registrations after Swift posted a message on Instagram encouraging her 280 million followers to register to vote.

Former President Donald Trump said earlier on Sunday that it would be “unfaithful” for Ms Swift to endorse Biden as the Democratic president “did nothing” for her.

“I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other music artists,” Mr. Trump wrote on Truth Social, referring to a 2018 bill.

Trump continued: “Joe Biden did nothing for Taylor and never will. There is no way she can support the crook Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the History of our country, and be unfaithful to the man who made her so much money.

“Also, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he might be a Liberal and probably can't stand me!” he added.

During the game, Swift was in the private box with A-listers, including Hollywood actress Blake Lively, rapper Ice Spice and pop artist Lana Del Rey, along with Chiefs family and friends.

Swift could be seen clutching her beer and banging her empty cup on the table, in between cheering enthusiastically for Kelce – or biting her nails every time the 49ers pulled ahead.

In a separate post, Mr. Biden congratulated the Chiefs, saying, “With their third Super Bowl win in just five seasons, the Kansas City Chiefs aren't just champions today — they're a dynasty.”

“Ready to welcome this team back to the White House,” he added.
