Elon Musk jibes at “Sleepy Joe” Biden Monday for failing to congratulate him on the first-ever fully civilian flight into orbit after the crew landed safely back on Earth on Saturday.

When asked on Twitter why he thought Biden hadn’t praised him, the billionaire and founder of SpaceX replied, “He’s still sleeping.”

Musk alluded to Donald Trump’s nickname for Biden during the 2020 presidential election, after which he named the current president “Sleepy Joe.”

Bearing the success of his recent SpaceX mission with him, billionaire and SpaceX founder Elon Musk found time to mock President Joe Biden after the president failed to congratulate him on his space efforts.

On Sunday, when a Twitter user asked Musk why Biden hadn’t congratulated SpaceX’s Inspiration4 crew after their successful return to Earth, Musk replied, “He’s still asleep.”

The all-amateur crew that included Inspiration4 was created primarily to raise awareness and support for the Pediatric Cancer Center at St. Jude’s Research Hospital.

Musk paid undisclosed millions for the trip to show that ordinary people can shoot themselves into orbit.

In August, Biden raised eyebrows by not inviting Musk to his EV summit after he appeared to bow to union pressure.

Biden invited to the White House the heads of General Motors, Ford and Stellantis – the Dutch company that makes the Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep brands.

The three companies are the three largest employers of members of the United Auto Workers union, which backed Biden in April 2020, with the support of 400,000 workers.

Tesla, whose Model 3, X and S cars alone make up nearly 60 percent of the U.S. electric car market, has no unionized workers, according to government data.

Musk’s swipe at Biden comes on the heels of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who suggested Sunday that Biden had fallen asleep when he met new Israeli leader Naftali Bennett last month.

In a Facebook video posted Sunday, social media users shared a video clip of the US president looking down and nodding off as Bennett spoke in the Oval Office.

Biden was awake, but his response was cut from the video, leading viewers to believe the president was having a “senile” moment during his first meeting to restore US-Israeli relations over Iran’s nuclear advance.

Seconds after the clip was cut, longer footage showed Biden reacting to Bennett.

In a video Netanyahu posted to his Facebook page on Sunday, an off-camera voice says, “You know, Bennett met Biden.”

Israel's former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested in a Facebook video posted Sunday that US President Joe Biden had fallen asleep when he met new Israeli leader Naftali Bennett last month.

‘I heard. I heard Biden was very considerate at this meeting. He lowered his head in agreement,” Netanyahu replied, dropping his own head in one swift motion, as if imitating someone falling asleep.

The Likud, Netanyahu’s party, came to its defense and pointed out that the former prime minister was mocking Bennett and not Biden.

Contrary to the distorted image broadcast in the media, former Prime Minister Netanyahu did not criticize President Biden, whom he has known for 40 years and considers a friend of Israel.
