Sports teams invited to the White House generally receive a set allotment of tickets to events, and the administration does not decide the guest list, according to a person familiar with the process who was not authorized to detail it publicly, and significant others do not always come. The supermodel Gisele Bündchen did not visit the White House when Tom Brady, her husband at the time, visited with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021, for example.
But, that person said, if Ms. Swift wanted to attend, the administration would “make it work.”
A White House visit from Ms. Swift would add fuel to several theories — none of which she has acknowledged herself — that she has the power to bolster Mr. Biden’s re-election bid and sink the prospects of his likely challenger, Donald J. Trump.
In recent weeks, Mr. Biden’s allies have buzzed with anticipation that Ms. Swift may deliver an endorsement, as she did in 2020. Mr. Trump seems anxious about that prospect as well. In a social media post over the weekend, he said he was responsible for legislation that has contributed to Ms. Swift’s success.
“There’s no way she could endorse Crooked Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the History of our Country, and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money,” Mr. Trump said. “Besides that, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he may be a Liberal, and probably can’t stand me!”
Ms. Swift, 34, had no comment — but she has historically not reacted well when people have tried to take ownership of her work. And in any case, she was busy, and probably jet-lagged, after traveling from her tour in Tokyo to the Super Bowl in Las Vegas. There, she chugged a drink on national television, jumped up and down in support of her boyfriend and joined him on the field for a kiss after the Chiefs won.
