Secret Service agents gave a surprising update on this scary situation with Travis Kelce

Jun 11, 2024

Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce is used to being in the headlines after he started dating pop megastar Taylor Swift.

But he never thought he’d get them for this reason. 

And Secret Service agents gave a surprising update on this scary situation with Travis Kelce.

Travis Kelce warned he could get tasered at the White House 

The Kansas City Chiefs made their customary visit to the White House after winning the Super Bowl in February.

It was a day to celebrate the team’s second straight championship, which included some light-hearted fun.

President Joe Biden looked like a buffoon trying to put on a helmet that the Chiefs gifted him. 

Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce gave some brief remarks at the Presidential podium that raised eyebrows during the event.

“My fellow Americans,” Kelce said. “It’s nice to see you all yet again. I’m not gonna lie, President Biden, they told me if I came up here I’d get tased. So, I’m gonna go back to my spot.”

During an episode of his podcast New Heights with his brother Jason Kelce, he said that he wasn’t joking about potentially getting tased at the podium.

“That’s real,” Kelce explained. “The Secret Service that’s all over the White House, they weren’t too happy with me. They weren’t too happy with me on my second time visiting.”

Kelce tried to give an impromptu speech at last year’s White House visit by the Chiefs after their Super Bowl victory.

He and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes gave Biden a jersey at the event when Kelce made a beeline for the podium.

“So, I’ve been waiting for this . . .” Kelce began to say before Mahomes yanked him away from the podium back to the group.

Kelce also got in trouble during the visit over his credentials.

“Last time, I was talking about how I had an expired ID,” Kelce said. “I caught s*** for that.”

Secret Service responds to Travis Kelce’s taser rumors 

Secret Service spokesperson Nathan Herring told People Magazine that the taser comments directed at Travis Kelce were all in good fun.

“Our agents and officers were happy to support Travis and the Chiefs’ official visit to the White House, even presenting him with a Secret Service pin,” Herring said. “As for the taser comment, Travis and our personnel were having some friendly banter as we have passionate football fans throughout our organization.”

The Chiefs star said that it’s always an honor to visit the White House no matter who’s in the Oval Office.

“Any time that I get a chance to get recognized by the President of the United States and get to go with my teammates, and a group of men and women that I had success with to the point where we get to get acknowledged, man, I’m doing it every single time,” Kelce said. “No matter who’s up there at the helm, no matter what’s going on in this world, I think it’s just such a cool opportunity.”

Travis Kelce and the Chiefs are looking to make another visit to the White House next year as they go for a historic third straight Super Bowl win next season – perhaps he’ll be visiting with President Trump if they three-peat.
