Patrick Mahomes provided a moment of levity during the Kansas City Chiefs' visit to the White House, as he steered his teammate Travis Kelce away from the microphone.

While some individuals may appear uncomfortable in front of a crowd, Kelce is known for embracing the attention and the spotlight. The 33-year-old tight end has gained popularity for hyping up crowds with his rendition of the Beastie Boys' famous line, "You gotta fight for your right to party."

On this particular occasion, the Chiefs were at the White House to commemorate their Super Bowl LVII victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in February. During their meeting with President Joe Biden, the team presented him with a Chiefs jersey featuring his name and the number 46, symbolizing his role as the 46th US President.

As the microphone stood unattended on the stage, Kelce sensed an opportunity and began to speak. However, Mahomes quickly intervened, gently guiding Kelce back to their team while playfully apologizing to the media. This humorous incident drew laughter from all present, showcasing the camaraderie between the two star players.

Mahomes and Kelce, who are not only key contributors on the field but also prominent figures off the field, took center stage during the team's visit. They posed alongside President Biden, proudly displaying the Chiefs jersey they had gifted him.

This moment was particularly significant for the organization, as it marked their first celebration of a Super Bowl victory at the White House. Their previous title in 2020 occurred amidst the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

President Biden commended the Chiefs for their accomplishments, both in football and their contributions to society. He highlighted their commitment to making a difference by using their platform to advocate for racial justice, honor veterans, and support local schools through tutoring and mentoring programs.

The president praised the team's emphasis on community service and their encouragement of players to establish their own charitable organizations. He lauded their unity, describing it as a powerful and elusive force in the world.

President Biden also playfully acknowledged his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, who is a devoted Philadelphia Eagles fan. Jokingly attributing her fandom to her Philadelphia roots, he expressed his relief that she was currently overseas in the Middle East, indicating he might face a challenging evening due to the way the game between the Chiefs and Eagles concluded.
