Lisa McCaffrey, the mother of the running back for the San Francisco 49ers, Christian McCaffrey, said that she plans on boycotting Taylor Swift in the run up to the Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers. Scheduled for February 11, 2024, the game has drawn even more attention than normal thanks to the full-press mainstream media hype effort around Swift.
But Lisa McCaffrey, though normally a Swift fan, or Swiftie, said that she will be boycotting Swift for this week given Swift’s relationship with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. That comment came when McCaffrey appeared on Olivia Culpo’s podcast, “Your Mom.” During her appearance, she explained her usual support for Swift but current boycott plans.
“I refuse to listen to Taylor Swift songs for the next couple days,” she said. “I love her, I love the relationship, but we are boycotting any T. Swift songs,” she added. Continuing, McCaffrey added that she’d have trouble with that, even if just for a week “because I have her on my running playlist and everything.” McCaffrey then returned to the boycott pledge, saying, “But if she pops up on the radio station . . . nope. She’s dead to us this week.”
Meanwhile, much of MAGA has declared total war on Taylor Swift over her leftist leanings and alleged willingness to support Joe Biden in the 2024 election, something she did in 2020 as well. Swift has not yet jumped into the 2024 electoral fray on either side, though that hasn’t stopped some close to Trump from going after her and the effort to promote her.
Vivek Ramaswamy, for example, opined on X that the NFL could be rigging games in favor of the Chiefs because having her around helps so much with ratings and getting women to watch. “I wonder who’s going to win the Super Bowl next month,” Ramaswamy wrote. “And I wonder if there’s a major presidential endorsement coming from an artificially culturally propped-up couple this fall,” he continued.
Similarly, Charlie Kirk argued that Taylor backing Biden would make it even more difficult for the GOP to scrape out a 2024 win. “That will be a tsunami that will be very difficult to thwart,” Kirk said. Continuing, he called on conservatives to prepare for such an eventuality, saying, “We better be prepared. It seems as though things are aligning for that.”
Still others on the right have argued that the NFL is in league with the Deep State to get Biden elected through Swift. Fox News Channel host Jesse Watters, for example, said, in December of 2023, “It’s real. The Pentagon psy-op unit pitched NATO on turning Taylor Swift into an asset for combating misinformation online.”
One senior administration official, speaking to POLITICO on that theory, did his best to characterize it as ridiculous. The official said, “The absurdity of it all boggles the mind. It feels like one of those ‘tell me you are a MAGA conspiracy theorist, without telling me you are a MAGA conspiracy theorist’ memes.”
