Former United States President Barack Obama has spoken out about the dramatic conclusion of Super Bowl LVIII.
The 44th President of the United States took to social media Sunday night to congratulate the Kansas City Chiefs on their victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
Patrick Mahomes was crowned MVP after leading a game-winning 69-yard drive in overtime to secure a 25-22 victory over San Francisco.
It was Kansas City’s third Super Bowl victory in the last five years and the first time since the 2004 Patriots that an NFL team managed to win a back-to-back game.
“Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs, MVP Patrick Mahomes, Coach Reid, Travis Kelce, Chris Jones, Mecole Hardman and the rest of the champions on another Lombardi Trophy,” Obama said on X, formerly known under the name Twitter.
“Grace under pressure,” he added.
Mahomes led the Chiefs to a second straight Super Bowl title and their third championship in five years.
Mahomes also becomes the third player to win three Super Bowls and two Super Bowl MVPs, joining legendary quarterbacks Joe Montana and Tom Brady on an elite NFL club.
Obama’s online tribute came hours after Joe Biden paid tribute to Kansas City’s world title win.
But Joe Biden’s post on X was beyond bizarre as he attempted to mock conspiracy theorists.
Mahomes won the MVP award, but he did so with help from Travis Kelce, who took over in the late stages and finished the game with nine catches for 93 yards, despite a furious moment with the coach Andy Reid.
But Taylor Swift’s arrival on the scene as Kelce’s girlfriend this season led to some scandalous claims.
There have been wild claims that Swift and Travis, with the help of a scripted Chiefs victory, could convince many voters to put the current head of state in the White House for a second term.
It’s a bunch of old nonsense — but Biden was happy to use it for some social media traction following the Chiefs’ victory.
He posted: “Just like we drew him,” featuring a bizarre image of himself with laser-like red lights emanating from his eyes.
Biden later added in a post from his POTUS account: “With their third Super Bowl victory in just five seasons, the Kansas City Chiefs are not just champions today – they are a dynasty.
“Congratulations, Chiefs Kingdom. Ready to welcome this team back to the White House.”
