President Joe “Sleepy” Biden isn’t doing so well. After his military unit, the Space Force, he completely ignored it! Though it’s not 100% Biden’s job to acknowledge every accomplishment, the Space Force is still new, and anything they do should be acknowledged.
Elon Musk was frustrated with Biden’s lack of acknowledgment because Elon Musk had a lot to do with the startup of Space Force. The apparent reason that Biden didn’t acknowledge it is because former President Donald Trump was the one who created it. That’s the truth.
Electric Cyberfarm tweeted, “The President of the United States has refused even to acknowledge the four newest American astronauts who helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for St. Jude. What’s your theory on why that is?”
Musk responded saying, “He’s still sleeping.”
Musk was a fan of Trump and partnered with him on the Space Force. Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur, is a capitalist at heart. Biden would certainly tax Musk’s revenue if taxes are raised, and Musk could take his business anywhere in the world if he wanted to but stays in the United States. Biden should be thankful.
SpaceX returned Crew Dragon from orbit with its four-member Inspiration 4 mission marking the first SpaceX manned orbit. They spent three days in orbit and raised $160.2 million, and Musk pledged $50 million that are all going to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. It seems Biden isn’t as much of a Catholic as he makes himself out to be. Though the hospital isn’t necessarily Catholic, the founder named the hospital from his religious views.
Musk had taken shots at other space orbit leaders like Jeff Bezos when a New York Times writer shared an article about Bezos not being given the lunar lander contract but saying, “Can’t get it up (to orbit) lol.”
Musk is the best kind of competitor to have because he’s not afraid to give it back to his opponents. He doesn’t seem to have malicious intent but uses small jabs for fun.
Through Musk’s interviews and specifically his Joe Rogan Podcast appearance, it’s clear that Musk sees failure as progress. He talks briefly about the rocket tests that exploded and said it’s unusual when they don’t blow up. He said that they expect the rockets to fail to make progress and perfect different methods, and that’s what makes Musk a superstar in space travel and probably why Trump teamed up with him. Trump had his own set of failures when he first began and went bank to bank to get a loan and was denied many times.
Musk knows that Biden is a failure. He knows this because he’s seen as a strong leader, and he’s also a strong leader. Biden should cultivate a relationship with Musk if he wants to work interchangeably with Musk in the future.
Biden probably won’t make the right choice. He’ll withdraw from Musk as he withdrew from Afghanistan.
