Elon Musk`s joke on President Biden after the mission

On Saturday, After SpaceX completed a historic spaceflight (private), CEO Elon Musk made a joke about President Joe Biden, who had not commented on the accomplishments of the company and the civilian flight crew.

On Twitter, one of Musk’s followers asked him what his theory was about the President, who refused even to acknowledge the American astronauts who supported raising several million dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Musk replied that the President was sleeping.

Yesterday, CNBC reported that SpaceX harmlessly returned from orbit. After three days in space, the Crew Dragon spacecraft carried the four mission members back to Earth.

One primary goal of the Inspiration4 mission was to accumulate $200 million for Children’s Research Hospital. By Saturday, it managed to raise $160.3 million. After Inspiration4 landed, Musk guaranteed to donate $50 million individually, driving the campaign’s total fund to $220 million.


The White House, as well as SpaceX, has not yet commented on the event.

Top NASA officials commented and complimented Elon Musk on the Inspiration4 mission. SpaceX rivals acknowledged it, too, including Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Blue Origin, and Jeff Bezos on social media.

It was the first private spaceflight with non-professional civilians. The mission was also interesting because it involved the first Black woman, a spacecraft pilot. 

Besides his comment on Biden, Musk also stated that the president might prefer to stay out of politics. It was a clear indication of a willingness to mock the Democratic President and replicate a right-wing joke about Biden. For example, former President Donald Trump repeatedly mocked  Biden last year by naming him Sleepy Joe. 

However,  the Department of Justice investigates SpaceX after allegations that it discriminated against job applicants according to citizenship status. It started during the Trump administration.
