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

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.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
