President Joe Biden had conspiracy theorists in a tizzy after posting what appeared to be his reaction to the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl win on Sunday night.

“Just like we drew it up,” Biden posted on X alongside a photo of “Dark Brandon,” the meme created by hardcore—and very online—supporters of Donald Trump that Biden and his team loved so much they adopted it as their own.

The post was apparently referencing far-right conspiracy theories which posit the NFL and high-level government operatives conspired to rig the Super Bowl in Kansas City’s favor to give maximum exposure to a yet-to-be-announced endorsement from Chiefs star Travis Kelce and his girlfriend Taylor Swift.

        I’d be surprised if he could properly post a tweet. I wonder if his pr team even bothered with running it by him. I think the post is hilarious, but I know it wasn’t Bidens idea, or even the one tweeting it.

            I mean, you really think that the 81 year old president of the united states, is terminally online enough to know about a niche meme, related to him, called “shadow brandon”, and is also terminally online enough to want to turn around and post it on twitter?

              Ah yes, he has to be “terminally online” to be aware of a hugely popular meme about him.

              You’re also missing the whole deal of him talking about and mentioning this meme several times and he and his PR team having made their own jokes for it for a couple of years now. All of this has been extremely hard to miss. I don’t interact much with US politics any more than what pops up here on Lemmy and the biggest things that get worldwide reporting and I’ve seen this several times.

          English is also my second language. Good job putting together longer sounding words to sound smart but not mean anything!

        Exactly. How the hell else are we gonna get dopamine and serotonin today? They’ve removed all the naturally occuring sources of with their fucked up policies and general ghoulishness. Where else then but from the tears of their impotent, incandescent rage?

        Mmmm. The rage gives it that lemony twist.
