Kansas City Chiefs’ Visit With Joe Biden at White House Full of Comedic Moments

by | Jun 6, 2024 | News, Quick Reads

President Joe Biden honored the Kansas City Chiefs’ second consecutive Super Bowl victory on Friday in the annual visit to the White House.

“When the doubters question whether you could pull it off again — believe me, I know what that feels like,” the president said to the team. “I don’t think anyone’s doubting you now.”

The serious vibe quickly vanished when Biden was gifted and wore a Chiefs helmet, resulting in an eruption of cheers from the crowd and players. He also pretended to catch passes with his newfound look.

Once the president concluded his comments, superstar tight end Travis Kelce was invited to the podium for a speech. He began by recalling the events of last year’s visit, where he comically tried to speak at the podium before being pushed off by quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

This time around, Kelce’s nerves were spiked as he revealed on a recent episode of the ‘New Heights’ podcast with his brother Jason Kelce that Secret Service members approached him upon arrival.

“When I walked in, I had about four or five Secret Service members come up to me and tell me, ‘You know if you go up to that podium, we’re authorized to tase you,’” Kelce said.

Fittingly, that’s exactly what Kelce made his speech about, stating, “It’s nice to see you all yet again. I’m not gonna lie, President Biden, they told me if I came up here I’d get tased, so I’m gonna go back to my spot.”

This meeting comes just a few weeks after the viral speech from Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, who took a jab at Biden’s views on abortion as well as the LGBTQ+ community. Despite the disagreements, the star kicker was in attendance for the celebration on Friday.
