Also-ran’s Loony Touchdown: Vivek Ramaswamy Claims Supper Bowl Will be Rigged to Set Stage for Taylor Swift’s Endorsement of Biden!

  • The failed Indian American presidential candidate who endorsed Trump, said the game between Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers would be rigged for a dramatic endorsement of the president by “artificially culturally propped-up couple.”

He is still bent on out-Trumping Trump. Vivek Ramaswamy now has a prediction about the upcoming Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. And like most of his ideas, this one is a preposterous conspiracy theory as well. The Indian American who dropped out of the presidential race, and endorsed Donald Trump, has claimed that the game would be rigged to set a stage for Taylor Swift’s endorsement of President Joe Biden. As almost everyone one the planet knows, Swift is romantically involved with Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce.

“I wonder who’s going to win the Super Bowl next month,” Ramaswamy posted on X in response to a theory by alt-right media personality Jack Posobiec. “And I wonder if there’s a major presidential endorsement coming from an artificially culturally propped-up couple this fall.”

It is however unclear whether the worldwide sensation with 280 million Instagram followers, is planning to endorse Biden for a second term. The singer, who is 47 years younger than the president, endorsed his campaign in 2020. The Biden campaign is aware that fund-raising appeals from her “could be worth millions of dollars,” The New York Times noted. 

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a top Biden surrogate, has “all but begged” Swift, who “stands tall and unique,” to become more involved in Biden’s campaign. “What she was able to accomplish just in getting young people activated to consider that they have a voice and that they should have a choice in the next election, I think, is profoundly powerful,” he said speaking to reporters in September. 

She has also encouraged fans to register to vote. Last year, a single Instagram post of hers  led to 35,000 new voter registrations, NPR reported at the time. “I’ve been so lucky to see so many of you guys at my U.S. shows recently,” she wrote on her Instagram stories. “I’ve heard you raise your voices, and I know how powerful they are. Make sure you’re ready to use them in our elections this year.”

Swift, who has been making music for nearly two decades, she has reached an unparalleled level of celebrity in the past year. Last month, her wildly popular Eras tour became the first tour to cross the billion-dollar mark. Time’s ‘Person of the Year,” she has become a regular at Chiefs’ tight end Kelce’s games. Her presence at 12 of 18 games has been profitable to the team and the NFL, “creating a  “brand value” of $331.5 million,” according to a recent Front Office Sports report which cited data from Apex Marketing Group. Not only did she “help the NFL produce its highest regular-season female viewership since it started collecting that data in 2000,” the media brand said, she also helped sell merchandise. Kelce gear had a 400% increase, and he became a top-five-selling jersey after Swift attended her first Chiefs game.

Meanwhile, Newsweek data suggests that Swift’s endorsement could have a positive impact. A Redfield & Winton Strategies poll for Newsweek revealed that 18% of respondents said that her endorsement made them “more likely” or “significantly more likely” to vote for that candidate. Seventeen percent said her endorsement would make them less likely to vote for that candidate, while 55% said it would have no impact.

However, as Deadline points out, it is “difficult to discern the true impact of celebrity endorsements” from one poll. “But campaigns have often turned to celebrities as a way to boost enthusiasm and fundraising, as well as to get people simply to register to vote,” Deadline adds.
