The Kansas City Chiefs were invited to the White House on Friday. Professional and collegiate champion teams are traditionally invited to the President’s residence. The Chiefs had defeated the San Francisco 49ers to clinch the Super Bowl LVIII.

It was the Chiefs' second consecutive meetup with the US President Joe Biden. They had made a trip to the White House last year too and Chiefs Travis Kelce tried to pull off a hilarious stunt last time. However, he was pulled away by quarterback Patrick Mahomes.  But this time President Biden allowed him to live his dream. 

Travis Kelce’s message to Joe Biden

On the Chiefs' visit to the White House last year, Kelce tried to address the nation. After presenting a custom Chiefs jersey to Biden, he moved to the presidential podium.  “So I’ve been waiting for this. . . .” before Kelce could finish the statement, Mahomes pulled him away. 

This time, Joe Biden congratulated the Chiefs for defending the title and acknowledged their struggles on their journey to the Super Bowl. After praising Patrick Mahomes, Biden invited Travis Kelce to the podium.

“I'd have Travis come up here, but God only knows what he'll say”, the President said. Kelce might have been waiting for this moment for long. His teammates cheered for him as he approached the stage. 

Travis Kelce addressed the people of America from the podium. He was happy to be at the White House again. Kelce shared what he was told about standing at the podium. “They told me if I came up here I'd get tased, so I'm going to go back to my spot.”, Kelce told Biden. The incident left everybody chuckling.
