President Joe Biden made a bizarre, confusing joke during the annual turkey pardoning ceremony at the White House on Monday, seemingly referencing Taylor Swift’s sweltering concert in Brazil, which tragically resulted in the death of one fan, but also mentioning Beyoncé’s tour and Britney Spears as well.
“Now, just to get here, Liberty and Bell had to beat some tough odds and competition,” Biden said, discussing the turkeys.
Joe Biden makes a joke about how hard it is to get tickets to Beyonce’s Renaissance Tour except he says that her name is “Brittany.
He then says she is currently performing in Brazil, which is where Taylor Swift just did shows on her Eras Tour.

“They had to work hard to show patience and be willing to travel over a thousand miles. You could say even it’s harder than getting a ticket to the Renaissance Tour,” he said, seemingly referring to Beyoncé’s tour. But then he stammered on, muttering, “Or, or Britney’s tour. She’s down in — it’s kind of warm in Brazil right now.”
