Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk received raucous applause and cheers when he was introduced to the U.S.cadets during his Thursday visit to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. And he’s a private citizen!
Obviously, the U.S. troops have more respect and enthusiasm for Elon Musk than Joe Biden, who delivered America its most stunning defeat in Afghanistan in US history.
Musk visited the U.S. Air Force Academy to meet with cadets and discuss his research projects and innovations. He was the distinguished speaker for the Academy’s Ira C. Eaker Lecture Series in Arnold Hall.
#ICYMI – Elon Musk was at #youracademy yesterday.
The tech giant had a Q & A session with Lt. Gen. Clark and cadets and met with a small group of cadets to discuss their research projects and innovations.

Elon Musk received more cheers than Biden ever will, who allegedly received 81 million votes.

The Gazette reported:
SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk paid a visit to the Air Force Academy on Thursday, where he rubbed shoulders with academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Richard M. Clark, participated in a Q&A, and spoke personally with cadets who presented research projects to him.
The billionaire entrepreneur greeted excited cadets during lunchtime, served as the distinguished speaker for the academy’s Ira C. Eaker lecture series in a packed Arnold Hall, and met with Guardians — cadets who will commission into the U.S. Space Force after graduating from the academy.
While taking questions from the audience, Musk “shared his problem-solving philosophy, addressed the connection between military and commercial space interests, and discussed the challenges of space debris,” according to a release sent by the Air Force Academy.
He also told cadets that innovation relies on taking risks and pushing boundaries. “If we’re not blowing up engines, we’re not trying hard enough,” he said.

Obviously, you will not see this same energy for Joe Biden when he visits the troops.
Last year, Joe Biden delivered a commencement address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut. Joe tried to crack a joke and got peeved at the lack of response from the crowd.
“You are a really dull class. Come on, man! Is the sun getting to you?” Biden said with the sun beating down on his face. What a jackass.
Biden insults our U.S. Coast Guard:
“You’re a really DULL class… come on, man!”

Also in 2016, a video of Joe Biden actually calling US troops “you stupid bastards” to their face during a speech after they failed to clap.

Compare Elon’s reception to Joe Biden’s.
God help our US men and women in uniform.
