Elon Musk and Jared Kushner Spotted Together at World Cup Final and Twitter Has Some Thoughts

Elon Musk and Jared Kushner were spotted enjoying the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 final on Sunday at Lusail Stadium in Lusail City, Qatar.

Musk live-tweeted the match between Argentina and France through text and videos. “Duel in the Desert” Musk tweeted:

Kushner was seen standing next to Musk at the game. The former White House adviser, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, was seen at other World Cup matches as well, including the United States’ World Cup match against England with the Trump family.

Earlier this month, House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden asked the State and Defense departments for various records on Kushner’s family business. The lawmakers raised concerns about his financial interests as he influenced the Trump administration’s foreign policy in the Persian Gulf.

Musk of course spent the week crying about “doxxing” and suspended many journalists who tweeted about the ElonJet Twitter account, which tracks where Musk’s private jet is at any point in time. This happens too be public information. But Musk posted that revealing that information is doxxing and is revealing “assassination coordinates.”

People on Twitter were disgusted by the hypocrisy of Musk, and had some thoughts about Kushner as well:
