Conspiracy Theorist’s Allegations on Swift, Kelce, and Super Bowl Rigging
Vivek Ramaswamy, a former Republican presidential candidate, has ignited an internet conspiracy theory alleging a ‘fake relationship’ between Taylor Swift and quarterback Travis Kelce.
According to Ramaswamy, this purported relationship is part of a larger plan to orchestrate a ‘rigged’ Super Bowl, ultimately aiding Joe Biden in securing a second term in the White House.
Speculation Gains Traction on Social Media
Ramaswamy’s speculation, shared on social media, garnered over 1.5 million views.
The conspiracy theory suggests a connection between the Kansas City Chiefs winning the Super Bowl, Swift’s involvement, and a potential major presidential endorsement in the future.
Notably, the New York Times had recently reported that Biden’s campaign is eyeing Swift for an endorsement in the upcoming presidential race.
White House Press Secretary Invokes Hatch Act
When questioned about Ramaswamy’s theory, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refrained from commenting, citing the Hatch Act, which restricts federal employees from engaging in certain political activities.
She acknowledged the popularity of Swift among some members of the press office but avoided delving into the conspiracy theory.
Swift’s Relationship and Past Political Influence
Swift has been the subject of other conspiracy theories, including claims of a ‘fake dating’ scenario with Kelce to boost NFL ratings.
She addressed her relationship with Kelce, stating that it began after he featured her on his podcast.
Swift’s endorsement power was evident in the 2020 election, where she supported Biden. Kelce, on the other hand, faced criticism for promoting Pfizer’s Covid vaccine.
Past Super Bowl and Political Connection
The conspiracy theory also draws parallels between the 2020 Super Bowl, where the Chiefs emerged victorious, and the concurrent presidential election where Biden defeated Donald Trump.
Swift’s endorsement history with Democratic candidates, coupled with Kelce’s vaccine promotion, adds fuel to the conspiracy.
Biden Campaign’s Interest in Swift and Social Media Influencers
Recent reports suggest that Biden’s campaign is actively seeking endorsements from social media influencers, including Swift.
The campaign aims to utilize her influence to mobilize young voters and attract campaign funding. Swift’s past efforts to encourage voter registration through her massive online following have proven impactful.
Swift’s Potential Role in Biden’s Election Strategy
Top Democrats, including California Gov. Gavin Newsom, view Swift as a powerful force in mobilizing young voters.
As the Biden campaign shifts focus to the 2024 election, it aims to utilize Swift’s influence to paint Trump as a threat to abortion rights and personal freedoms.
The campaign’s strategy involves reaching voters through social media and influencers to ensure a broader outreach beyond traditional news channels.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
