Chief White House strategist Steve Bannon referred to President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner as a “globalist” and a “cuck,” while venting to people inside the White House about the man who insiders say he openly clashes with.
“[Steve] recently vented to us about Jared being a ‘globalist’ and a ‘cuck,'” an unnamed White House official told The Daily Beast, adding: “He actually said ‘cuck,’ as in ‘cuckservative.'”
The pejorative “cuck,” which is derived from the word cuckold, has become an insult used by many on the right to declaim someone’s weakness in standing up to progressive, establishment politics.
The animosity between Bannon and Kushner, who serves as a senior advisor to Trump, is an open secret within the White House.
“Steve thinks Jared is worse than a Democrat, basically,” another official close to Bannon told The Daily Beast. “[Steve] has a very specific vision for what he believes, and what he shares [ideologically] with Trump. And he has for a long time now seen [Jared] as a major obstacle to achieving that.”
