President Biden holds moment of silence for Norma Hunt during the Chiefs White House


President Biden holds moment of silence for ‘First Lady of Football’ Norma Hunt during the Chiefs’ White House visit after the Kansas City matriarch died aged 85

President Joe Biden paid tribute to Kansas City Chiefs matriarch Norma Hunt during the organization’s visit to the White House Monday. 

The wife of Kansas City Chiefs founder and former owner Lamar Hunt, Norma died at the weekend at the age of 85, the franchise announced Sunday

Norma, the mother of the NFL team’s current owner Clark, was the only woman to attend every Super Bowl and watched her beloved Chiefs hoist the Lombardi Trophy for the third time in February. 

The team’s traditional Super Bowl victors’ trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on Monday was bittersweet following the loss of the ‘First Lady of Football.’

But amid the celebrations Biden chose to honor Norma with a moment of silence in front of the White House.

‘We’re missing one of the most loyal Chiefs fans there ever was, Norma Hunt, who passed away this weekend. I’d like to suggest a moment of silence,’ he said before he and the players behind him bowed their heads in respect. 

 POTUS sent condolences to the entire Hunt family and the Chiefs’ organization on behalf of him and the First Lady Jill Biden, who missed the event due to being in the Middle East. 

The FLOTUS is a die-hard eagles fan and the President claimed his wife is still upset about her team’s loss and refuses to believe James Bradberry was called for holding Juju Smith-Schuster. 

Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Co. wore suits for their trip to Washington DC on Monday.

The star quarterback donned a sharp blue suit while tight end Kelce sported a black t-shirt with red jacket, finished off with some shades. The pair presented the President with a Chiefs No. 46 jersey.

The sun was blazing for the Chiefs’ visit and Mahomes was quick to document the occasion, sharing videos and pictures on his Instagram story.

He posted a video of his teammates lining up outside the White House. Chiefs coach Andy Reid could be seen at the front, looking dapper in a suit, complete with red tie and franchise-branded jacket.

Mahomes then took his 5.6 million followers behind the scenes, capturing video inside the White House itself.

He filmed seven of his teammates strutting their stuff down a red carpet with Skyy Moore one of those dancing his way through the building. The group performed the well-known Memphis Grizzlies’ tunnel dance.

Mahomes had taken a selfie alongside fellow quarterback Chad Henne and Moore with kicker Harrison Butker oblivious in the background. 

President Biden was seen walking with Mahomes in the grounds of the White House before the former gave a speech outside to honor the team. 

The Chiefs are the latest team to visit the President after the LSU Tigers women’s basketball team and the UConn Huskies men’s basketball team took up the offer following their respective national championship wins.

Kansas City won its third Super Bowl title in franchise history when they beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl LVII in February.

Butker kicked the game-winning goal with just eight seconds left in the entertaining showdown at Arizona’s State Farm Stadium.

It is tradition for the Super Bowl victors to go to the White House after sealing glory months earlier.

But the Los Angeles Rams didn’t take up the invitation last year, making the Chiefs the first team since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021 to pay a visit.
