You knew Taylor Swift was influential, but Republicans are now crediting the singer with James-Bond-villain-level powers in a wacky conspiracy theory claiming the singer's romance with NFL star Travis Kelce is really a plot to rig the Super Bowl and get President Joe Biden reelected.

The relationship between the pop powerhouse and the Kansas City Chiefs tight end has gripped the nation for weeks, with TV cameras repeatedly panning from the field during the team's surging NFL season to a cheering Swift in the stands.

Fascination peaked this weekend when the Chiefs defeated the Baltimore Ravens to book their berth in February's Super Bowl and, in the midst of celebrations, Swift descended onto the field to kiss Kelce, fresh from playing one of the best games of his life.
