Burn! Elon Musk Tweets Biden ‘Still Sleeping’ as Explanation for not Applauding First Private SpaceX Space Flight

Elon Musk

The Biden administration is not only botching every significant policy and global action but also snuffing celebrities. Nicki Minaj recently caused a stir calling out the White House for denying it had offered for the superstar to come visit 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Now, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is calling out President Joe Biden for not acknowledging his company’s successful space orbit. Certainly, it’s hard for Joe Biden to give anyone praise while on a beach vacation. Nonetheless, who isn’t he upsetting these days?

CNBC reported Musk called out the President, throwing shade his way via Twitter over the weekend in an exchange with one of his 60 million Twitter followers.

“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?” the follower questioned.

Musk responded with a swift and clean 3-word burn to POTUS: “He’s still sleeping.” Previously the billionaire has stated he “would prefer to stay out of politics” but sleepy Joe may have made him change his mind.

CNBC had previously reported on the success and safe return of SpaceX’s Crew from orbit on the Dragon spacecraft after three days in space. CNBC reported:

One major goal of the Inspiration4 mission was to raise $200 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It had raised $160.2 million by Saturday. Celebrating after Inspiration4 splashed down, Musk pledged to contribute $50 million personally — pushing the campaign’s total raised to $210 million.

The White House and SpaceX did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Top NASA officials have congratulated Musk and SpaceX on the Inspiration4 mission. SpaceX competitors acknowledged it too, with accolades from BoeingLockheed Martin, Blue Origin and Musk’s peer and rival Jeff Bezos shared on social media…

…This marked the first private SpaceX spaceflight, with a non-professional crew. Additionally, the mission involved the first Black woman to serve as a spacecraft pilot, the youngest American to become an astronaut to date, and the first person to fly in space with a prosthesis.

    C’mon, Elon. Kamala doesn’t follow orders, flies off to other countries “study” the border crisis here, then does nothing. He gets angry, forgets where he is, who he’s talking to when he attempts to address most topics. So he gets told what to say to avoid disaster. The pandemic isn’t working out as planned, and his party’s spending has the economy tanking with inflation. This whole Afghan situation was supposed to make him a great historical figure and now that’s yet another disaster. He’s too tired to research things properly, and sees it as un-presidential to listen to advisors, yet when he takes action, its a disaster. He’s tired…needs more rest.

POLL: Huge One Year Swing of Independent Voters Saying Government ‘Doing too Much’

Published

White House

What a difference a year can make. Particularly a year filled with government infringements and overreaching. In a Gallup poll released Thursday, findings show Americans have drastically shifted perspective on how much they want the government involved in their lives.

Gallup News tweeted the results along with the headline “Americans again favor a reduced government role in solving problems facing the country after supporting a more active government role last year.”

52% percent of those polled say the government is doing too much on issues that should be dealt with by businesses and individuals. Only 43% say the government needs to do more to address citizens’ problems.

The numbers have almost flopped from only one year ago when 54% said the government should be doing more, and 41% disagreed. The annual Gallup Governance survey was conducted September 1-17.

The Gallup Poll release stated “the shift toward favoring a more active government role in 2020 was seen among Democrats and independents but not Republicans — likely a response to the coronavirus pandemic and in particular to then-President Donald Trump’s approach to handling it.”

“Trump generally opposed government efforts designed to slow the spread of the virus, such as face mask requirements and business and school closures.” The poll found independent voters shifted their opinions greatly.

“The percentage of independents who said the government’s doing too many things jumped from 38% in 2020 to 57% this year. Republicans edged up from 74% to 80% and Democrats crept up from 13% to 18%.”

Gallup also highlighted the fact that 2020 was only the second time in the poll’s 29 years of asking about the role of government that at least half of Americans supported an active role for government. The first time occurred in 2001 in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Former Obama Ethics Chief Slams Psaki Over Dismissing Questions On Hunter Biden

Walter Shaub

Walter Shaub, the former head of the federal government’s ethics office under President Barack Obama, slammed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday in response to her dismissal of questions about whether the identity of buyers for Hunter Biden’s art would stay anonymous.

“At least five prints of Hunter Biden’s artwork have already been sold for $75,000 each and a team of lawyers is vetting potential patrons who plan to attend his upcoming gallery show in New York City — which has now been delayed until the spring,” The New York Post reported last week. “It’s unclear who purchased the reproductions — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden’s scandal-scarred son — or if any more were sold after the LA show opened.”

During Tuesday’s press briefing, Psaki told a reporter asking about the anonymity of the buyers of Hunter Biden’s art, “I know this is your favorite topic, but it, again — it still is the purview of the gallerist. We still do not know and will not know who purchases any paintings. And the President remains proud of his son.”

 

“These are legitimate questions,” Shaub said in response to Psaki’s comments. “It’s disappointing to hear [Psaki] send a message that the WH thinks the public has no right to ask about ethics. After the last 4 years, these questions have never been more important. I know this isn’t a popular opinion, but this stuff matters.”

“There is no ethics program in the world that can be built around the head of state’s staff working with a dealer to keep the public in the dark about the identities of individuals who pay vast sums to the leader’s family member for subjectively priced items of no intrinsic value,” Shaub tweeted Wednesday. “If this were Trump, Xi [Jinping] or [Vladimir] Putin, you’d have no doubt whatsoever that this creates a vehicle for funneling cash to the first family in exchange for access or favors. Nor would you doubt that the appearance of monetizing the presidency was outrageous.”
