The US Department of Defense recently released a statement regarding a popular online conspiracy regarding the Kansas City Chiefs, Taylor Swift, and President Joe Biden. Many conservative voices questioned the validity of the Chiefs’ win over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game.
People believe the NFL rigged the Kansas City Chiefs’ success
The popular conspiracy believes the NFL is helping to fuel the success of the Chiefs this season so musical pop star Taylor Swift, the girlfriend of the Chiefs’ tight end, Travis Kelce, can endorse President Joe Biden around or during the Super Bowl.
Yeah, that’s what some people think.
Some people have even gone as far as to claim the Pentagon has Swift as an asset of the government.
Per a Forbes report by Mary Whitfill Roeloffs, people have thought Swift could be a government asset since December:
Theories that Swift is part of a psychological operation carried out by the Pentagon have been circulating since Time named the pop star person of the year in December and have only intensified in the last week as some baselessly claim her relationship with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is part of a Democratic Party-led plan to support Biden’s campaign.
The Department of Defense dismissed the conspiracy
Per the report, the DOD released a statement denying Swift is an asset:
On Friday, Department of Defense Deputy Press Secretary Sabrina Singh told Forbes: “Taylor Swift is not part of a DOD psychological operation. Period.”
Several Republicans think the conspiracy is bogus
Several Republican Senators have come out this week to say that the NFL is indeed not being rigged for Biden’s reelection this November. Donald Trump’s campaign didn’t outright dismiss Swift as a propaganda machine for the Democrat party. After all, she endorsed Biden in 2020.
But Trump doesn’t think Swift’s potential endorsement would matter for November.
And it wouldn’t, which is why the conspiracy is really dumb.
Enjoy Super Bowl week!
