President Biden paid tribute to the late Norma Hunt, who recently passed away at the age of 85, during a visit by the Kansas City Chiefs to the White House. Hunt, the mother of Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, was remembered during a moment of silence held by the team to celebrate their Super Bowl LVII win.
Biden Remembers Hunt
During the visit, President Biden praised Norma Hunt for her unwavering loyalty to the Chiefs, pointing out that she had attended all 57 Super Bowls. He expressed his condolences to the Hunt family and the Chiefs organization on behalf of himself and First Lady Jill Biden, who was overseas at the time of the visit.
Chiefs’ Dynasty and Work Ethic
President Biden also commended the Chiefs’ dynasty and their head coach, Andy Reid, for their dominance in the league. He singled out the players for their hard work and dedication, noting that it was a key factor in their success.
Presentation of Custom Jersey
As a special tribute to the President, Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce presented him with a custom Chiefs jersey bearing the number 46, in reference to his position as the 46th President of the United States. While Kelce attempted to say a few words, Mahomes quickly shut him down, eliciting laughter from the room.
The Chiefs’ visit to the White House was particularly meaningful, as they were unable to make the trip the previous year due to COVID restrictions. Despite the recent loss of Norma Hunt, the team was able to celebrate their victory and honor her memory during their visit with the President.
