Biden’s Helmet Blunder: President’s Awkward Moment During Chiefs’ White House Visit

President Joe Biden’s meeting with the Kansas City Chiefs at the White House on Friday took an awkward turn when he struggled to put on a team helmet, drawing comparisons to Mike Dukakis’ infamous tank photo from his 1988 presidential campaign.

During the ceremony recognizing the Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory, some players, including Travis Kelce, encouraged Biden to try on a team helmet. In a video captured during the event, Biden can be seen having trouble getting the helmet on, realizing he can’t do it with his aviators on, and finally managing to place the helmet over his head. He then pretends to catch a football pass, adding to the awkwardness of the situation.

The incident has sparked discussions about Biden’s first campaign for president in 1988, which ended due to plagiarism allegations and exaggerations related to his academic record. It has also drawn attention to the presence of Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, who recently criticized Biden over his pro-abortion stance during a commencement address at Benedictine College.

Last year, Butker made headlines by wearing a pro-life tie and pin during the Chiefs’ 2023 White House ceremony. Despite the media-driven outrage over Butker’s recent unwoke speech, Chiefs coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes have defended him as a man of strong character and faith, putting to rest speculation about potential locker room tension.

It remains unclear whether Biden and Butker interacted during Friday’s ceremony, but the helmet incident has certainly become the talk of the town.

President Biden’s attempt to “score” with the Chiefs by wearing their helmet ended up being a bit of a “false start”!
