Mr. Musk thinks highly of himself.

To be fair, President Biden should have at least commented as much as he did for the Bezos and Branson flights.

Who cares.

Musk is a POS lashing out because he's not getting the kudos he thinks he should be getting.

I've said this before about Mr Musk, and I'll say it again...

If you act like an analpore, you get treated like an analpore.

To be fair, this isn't the first time this rocket flew humans to space. It's not REALLY a first at all...

Musk just likes his ego stroked and the question was setup to do that. What is it he has again Assbergers? Regardless I think you get the point. He's a genuine brilliant idiot.

Biden cannot comment. It goes against the Big Government religious belief that these types of projects can only be accomplished with huge government spending/initiatives. When private industry does it at a fraction of the price and time, they need to limit the media coverage or their braindead followers may start to question them.

Easy to do when decades of government funded science and engineering tell you how to do it.

It's not at a fraction of the price. It's investor subsidized on a private company with opaque financials that continues to fundraise billions.

and the number 1 customer of Space X is that same Big Government with what appears to be an unsustainable debt load.
