President Joe Biden welcomed Super Bowl winners the Kansas City Chiefs to the White House Friday – by modeling a football helmet and turning the mic over to tight end Travis Kelce, Taylor Swift’s boyfriend.

 

President Biden, aged 81, added a touch of humor by donning a Kansas City Chiefs helmet. As he put on the helmet, he playfully joked about potentially banning NFL star Travis Kelce from using the microphone, as a reporter shouts, "Where's Taylor Swift?"

Kelce was joined by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, coach Andy Reid, kicker Harrison Butker – the player embroiled 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 up here but God only knows what he’d say,’ Biden teased after delivering a short speech, peppered with 2024 election jokes about liking ‘back to back’ winners.

Kelce reluctantly walked to the podium. ‘My fellow Americans. It’s nice to see you all again,’ Kelce said. ‘I’m not going to lie President Biden, they told me if I came up here, I would get tased.’

As the program ended a reporter loudly shouted, ‘Where’s Taylor Swift?’ as the pop star didn’t attend the South Lawn ceremony.

The Chiefs presented Biden with a gift – a Kansas City helmet – which the president eventually stuffed on his head.

‘Thank you very much,’ Biden said.

He was able to remove it before chatting with Mahomes and Kelce at the conclusion of the event.

Afterward Mahomes and Coach Andy Reid gushed about that moment.

‘I mean we didn’t expect that. It was really cool to see that Chiefs helmet on and we’ve got that “Chiefs Kingdom” for the rest of the nation to see,’ said Mahomes.

A reporter had asked the quarterback if Biden would need the helmet going into a bruising 2024 election cycle.

Mahomes ignored shouts about whether he’d endorse Biden ahead of the November vote.

Reid wondered if Biden’s helmet moment made history.
