After the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl, President Joe Biden used a Dark Brandon meme on X to troll right-wing conspiracy theorists who posited that Democrats rigged it to enable a Taylor Swift endorsement.
The baseless claims suggested that the NFL rigged the season for Swift to attend, allegedly orchestrated by Biden and the CIA to boost ratings and promote a political agenda. Swift has been in a relationship with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce since September 2023 and has been a constant presence at his games.
The right-wing conspiracy theories gained traction after the Chiefs secured a spot in the Super Bowl, leading some to suggest that the NFL manipulated the season's outcome for Swift's potential attendance, culminating with a Swift endorsement of the president.
Once the Chiefs won their second consecutive Super Bowl—besting the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime—Biden couldn't help but troll conspiracy theorists with a post on X, formerly Twitter, saying:
"Just like we drew it up."
His message was accompanied by a meme showing him in his "Dark Brandon" persona, blasting lasers from his eyes.

Swift has been targeted by the far-right in recent months because of her efforts to register young voters.
Last month, Fox News personality Jesse Watters was criticized for suggesting Swift could be a covert government operative.
During his show Jesse Watters Primetime, Watters presented a clip falsely attributed to a Pentagon official, claiming that Swift was considered by the Pentagon's psychological operations unit as an asset to combat online misinformation.
Andrea Hailey, the CEO of Vote.org, quickly dismissed Watters' conspiracy theory, noting that Swift's partnership with the organization "is helping all Americans make their voices heard at the ballot box." She added that Swift is aiding "the biggest nonpartisan platform in America helping young people register [and] cast their vote."
