On Monday morning, former presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy waded into the world of sports commentary by predicting that the upcoming Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers would be rigged for the former in order to set the table for Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s endorsement of President Joe Biden this fall.
Ramaswamy posited the theory in a reply to far-right social media influencer Jack Posobiec — most famous for championing the Pizzagate conspiracy theory — mused on X that he was “thinking about when Taylor Swift called out the Soros family in 2019 for buying the rights to her music and then how she came out a super liberal in 2020.”
“I wonder who’s going to win the Super Bowl next month. And I wonder if there’s a major presidential endorsement coming from an artificially culturally propped-up couple this fall,” replied Ramaswamy. “Just some wild speculation over here; let’s see how it ages over the next eight months.”
While Ramaswamy panned Swift and Kelce as an “artificially culturally propped-up couple,” the pair are among the most successful people in each of their professions.
The 34-year-old Swift has 12 Grammy Awards, 40 American Music Awards, 23 MTV Video Music Awards, and her Eras tour is the highest-grossing music tour in world history.
Kelce is considered by many to be the greatest tight end in National Football League history and has been selected to nine Pro Bowls, four first-team All-Pro teams, and is as of Sunday, holds the NFL record for most career receptions in the playoffs. He has already won two Super Bowls with the Chiefs.
Ramaswamy did not provide any further details on how he believed the Super Bowl would ultimately be thrown to Kansas City.
