Report: Bannon Loves Calling Kushner a ‘Globalist’ and a ‘Cuck’
As stories about Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon being at odds in the White House continue to bubble up, it was only a matter of time before they started to get more personal. That happened on Thursday afternoon, when The Daily Beast reported that while they’re bickering plenty to each other’s faces, it gets even worse when Bannon is badmouthing Kushner to others. Specifically, his pet names for Kushner have allegedly been “globalist” and “cuck.”
What exactly does he mean?
- “Cuck,” or “cuckservative,” is a term adopted by the alt-right, replacing “RINO” (“Republican in name only”) with a word that’s loaded with sexual and, arguably, racial connotations. Cuck is short for “cuckold,” a term that has a few related meanings: Originally referring to a man whose wife is cheating on him, now it increasingly refers to men who fetishize their lady friends cheating on them, often with black men.
- “Globalist,” while technically referring to having a world-centric economic policy, is also commonly used in conspiracy theories, including anti-Semitic ones, which should raise a few eyebrows in light of the repeated allegations of Bannon’s ant-Semitism.
Bannon and the White House did not return The Daily Beast’s requests for comment.
