Elon Musk, Space X and Tesla CEO took aim at President Joe Biden Sunday for failing to congratulate SpaceX’s Inspiration 4 space mission which launched on Saturday evening.
“The President of the United States has refused to even acknowledge the 4 newest American astronauts who helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for St. Jude. What’s your theory on why that is?” said one Twitter user.
“He’s still sleeping,” Musk trolled

The Inspiration 4 mission was a significant step forward for America and the world, as it was the first all-civil space mission. It was also accomplished by an American private company.
Check out what CBS News Had To report:
The Inspiration4 crew wrapped up the first all-civilian privately-funded trip to orbit and plunged back to Earth on Saturday, dropping out of a hazy sky for a ghostly early evening splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean near Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Suspended under four large parachutes, the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule settled to a gentle, on-target water landing around 7:07 p.m. ET to wrap up a historic three-day mission, the first non-superpower orbital spaceflight.
“Inspiration4, on behalf of SpaceX, welcome home to planet Earth,” a SpaceX flight controller radioed. “Your mission has shown the world that space is for all of us and that everyday people can make extraordinary impacts on the world around them. Thank you for sharing your leadership, hope, generosity and prosperity, and congratulations on your incredible journey.”
Replied commander Jared Isaacman, the billionaire who chartered the flight in part to raise $200 million for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: “That was a heck of a ride for us. We’re just getting started.”
Todd “Leif” Ericson, another Inspiration4 mission director, said the splashdown capped “a great day for America.”
“I really believe this mission will be looked at as the first mission at the opening of really the second space age, where space travel becomes much more accessible to average men and women across the world,” he said.
“It’s about opening up space, but it’s also about looking back and making sure that we make a difference back here on Earth. … We’re at $160 million raised for St. Jude’s to cure childhood cancer. We’d encourage everybody to continue that trend and meet our goal of $200 million.”
Elon Musk’s prediction about Biden being too tired to get up may be a bit of a joke, considering that the president is absent from action as America falls apart.
Americans are in a trap in Afghanistan because the Taliban controls Afghanistan. The U.S. is at the brink of bankruptcy. COVID is increasing even though there are many vaccinated Americans. The border is being overrun by illegals. President Joe Biden believes it’s a great time to relax.
According to the White House schedule, President Biden spent the weekend at his vacation house in Rehoboth Beach. It is likely that he slept the whole weekend.
