Joe Biden’s campaign is hoping to get Swifties on board to boost his reputation (Taylor’s Version) going into the 2024 presidential election.
As the president’s approval ratings currently sit at historic lows, his team is reportedly looking to ignite momentum by seeking an endorsement from one of the country’s biggest superstars: Taylor Swift. Hey, it worked for NFL ratings!
The New York Times reports that White House aides are apparently brainstorming how to get the “Karma” singer officially on board to publicly support the campaign heading into the November election.
The outlet also reported one idea that was jokingly proposed as a part of their “Taylor Swift strategy” was to send the commander-in-chief to one of her “Eras Tour” dates. Swift’s tour is currently on its international leg, so the idea was more than likely suggested during the U.S. leg last year.
But unless everything has changed, the president shouldn’t have anything to worry about which candidate Swift supports. Swift endorsed Biden in the 2020 presidential election and has been vocal about her unfavorable views on Trump.
“I spoke to @vmagazine about why I’ll be voting for Joe Biden for president. So apt that it’s come out on the night of the VP debate,” she tweeted in October 2020. “Gonna be watching and supporting @KamalaHarris by yelling at the tv a lot. And I also have custom cookies.”
Swift has consistently backed Democrats, which is why Vivek Ramaswamy, who dropped his presidential bid and endorsed Donald Trump this month, took to his X account to share his conspiracy theory on the matter. The Republican politician suggested the NFL rigged the endgame to ensure Swift has more airtime ahead of a Biden endorsement.
“I wonder who’s going to win the Super Bowl next month,” Ramaswamy wrote, “And I wonder if there’s a major presidential endorsement coming from an artificially culturally propped-up couple this fall. Just some wild speculation over here, let’s see how it ages over the next 8 months.”
For months now, the worldwide sensation has been appearing at NFL games to support her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. The reigning Super Bowl champions won the AFC championship, securing their place in the upcoming Super Bowl in Las Vegas.
The victory ignited conspiracies from not only Ramaswamy, but several right-wingers. Another failed GOP candidate, Jack Lombardi II, said he has “never been more convinced that the Super Bowl is rigged. With all the unneeded and unwanted Taylor coverage at the games. KC’s journey to the Superbowl – totally scripted … KC wins. And then later (they announce) their support for Biden. Coincidental? No. Bought and paid for couple. SMH.”
Lombardi added in a separate post, “Taylor Swift is nothing more than a controlled influencer who has been put to work by those who seek to destroy America.”
Swift has yet to make any comments on the 2024 presidential election.
