Elon Musk made another terrible mistake in the eyes of the woke.
He was seen with former President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner at the 2022 World Cup Final in Lusail City, Qatar on Sunday.
The new Twitter CEO and the former White House advisor were “caught” sitting next to each other while watching the game between France and Argentina.
Argentina won the match with penalty kicks after a 3-3 draw giving Lionel Messi, Argentina’s “greatest forward” his first World Cup win.
Liberals were triggered by Musk’s choice of company even as he live-tweeted throughout the game giving Twitter users an up-close look at the action.
At one point, Musk announced that users were posting “24,000 tweets per second” when France scored its third goal. He claimed that it was “the highest” amount “ever for a World Cup.”
Twitter was also ablaze with pictures of Musk and Kushner. Many Twitter users questioned the relationship.
Musk forgot to get permission to hang out with someone associated with Trump.
Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney retweeted one of the photos shared by Eric Swalwell, a Democrat representative from California. The caption read, “They say a picture is worth a thousand words…”
It’s not clear how Musk feels about Trump, but Trump predicted that Musk wouldn’t buy Twitter and called him “another bull***t artist.”
On his social network, Truth Social, Trump wrote, “Elon is not going to buy Twitter.”
“Where did you hear that before? From me.
“He’s got himself a mess.
“You know he said the other day, ‘Oh, I’ve never voted for a Republican.’
“I said, ‘I didn’t know that. He told me he voted for me.’
“So, he’s another bull***t artist.”
The Sun UK also points out that there seemed to have been a little controversy regarding Ivanka Trump and Musk over a “misconstrued” tweet from Musk.
In May, the Tesla boss tweeted, “Take the red pill.”
The phrase comes from The Matrix but has come to apply to people who are waking up and moving toward conservatism.
Ivanka Trump retweeted it with the caption, “Taken.”
After a lot of scuttlebutt over the comments, Musk said in an interview with The New York Times that Ivanka took the tweet the “wrong way.”
He said: “No, it’s just: Accept reality as it is as opposed to what you wish it were. I think [Ivanka Trump] was interpreting it through more of a political lens than it was intended.”
Whatever the relationship between Musk and Kushner, it caused quite a stir with the outrage mob.
They were quick to add their disgust over a new Twitter policy that was announced on Sunday.
The social media giant will now ban “free promotion of certain social media platforms” on the app. The company said will now restrict posting links or usernames to Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Truth Social, Tribel, Nostr, and Post.
One Twitter user defended the move saying, “You’re free to speak, but you gotta pay to advertise. Sounds reasonable to me.”
To which Musk replied: “Exactly.”
No matter what Musk does in his private life or at Twitter, it will all come under scrutiny from the Left.
