Steve Bannon Calls Jared Kushner a 'Cuck' and 'Globalist' Behind His Back

Source: The Daily Beast

Donald Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon has called the president’s senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner a “cuck” and a “globalist” during a time of high tension between the two top aides, several Trump administration officials told The Daily Beast.


The fighting between Kushner and Bannon has been “nonstop” in recent weeks, according to sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. It’s been an “open secret” that Bannon and Kushner often clash “face-to-face,” according to senior officials.

...

"Steve thinks Jared is worse than a Democrat, basically," another official close to Bannon said. "[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."

...

The Times also reported that “Bannon’s Svengali-style reputation has chafed on a president who sees himself as the West Wing’s only leading man,” and that “several associates said the president had quietly expressed annoyance over the credit Mr. Bannon had received for setting the agenda—and Mr. Trump was not pleased by the ‘President Bannon’ puppet-master theme promoted by magazines, late-night talk shows and Twitter.”

We're still in the honeymoon phase of Trump's presidency.

3. from the story

 


A Republican source close to Trump told The Daily Beast confirmed this level of insecurity over Bannon’s reputation coming from the president, and mentioned that the president was “irked” after catching a glimpse of a recent cold-open on Saturday Night Live.


Bannon was depicted as a Grim Reaper character who manipulates Alec Baldwin’s President Trump into sowing global chaos and diplomatic breakdown. At the end of the scene, “Bannon” tells Trump to give him his Oval Office desk back. Baldwin’s Trump calls the Reaper “Mr. President,” and then proceeds to go sit at his own much smaller, shorter desk, where the president plays with a kid’s toy instead of governing.

"Did you see this crap?" Trump asked the confidante, referring to the SNL sketch.

22. Surprised I am! I though the postcard gimmick was too immature

to work. Wrong (again). Since it worked once, let's try postcards to "Pres. Jared Kushner". I'm sending one today that says Jared is more handsome than even Jack Kennedy, and that I really like his natural hair and commanding countenance. I swear that I would walk the stairs to the gallows, if he would hold my hand. And, I would like a photo of just him in the Oval Room -- inscribed "I will never tell you a lie -- just trust me. Jared, in the Oval Office". PS Jared: Please run for president in 2020. We need YOU!

36. We need all the voices of rationality there we can get.

Let's not forget that some of us really might not wake up some morning, or wish we hadn't, and that it could be our children running naked and burned down the streets.

Look at that idiot considering going to war against Syria--ally of both Russia and China, a complete and almost instant 180 as if this was the first time Assad gassed Syrian children. When he's already stressed over N Korea and China. Even if the few sensible people there talk him down off the wall (typically 3-day rages, remember?), where might the next mood swings take him?

We need that lunatic OUT of the White House.
If our nation and its people are to literally survive the next 4 years, we need Bannon out. I despise Kuschner for the opportunistic little weasely crook that he is, but he is a million times more sane than Bannon.
What is interesting is that if Trump were to go back to his NYC politics, many Dems would actually like him. Besides from the fact he is a serial sex offender and batshit crazy. But he chose wrong.

21. "cuckold" is built on a foundation of sexism.


It attacks the "manliness" of the cuckold.

It presupposes that men are supposed to be in control of their women. If a wife has an affair, she is out of control, in the way sexists think. If a man can't control his wife in all aspects, he is "girly". Of course, they consider men having affairs as "manly", provided the man doesn't get noticed by those not directly involved or the public.

32. The alt-right also live in an alt-reality

They seem to think a cheating wife is because of feminism. Or that feminism causes women to cheat and men to become weak, pathetic, cuckolds who won't leave them.

I never understood the concept of "controlling" another person or staying with a cheater. I would rather divorce such a person.

30. Yes, but historically I see it a little differently

 

It was a man's biggest fear - that a woman could cuckold him. In matriarchal societies, it didn't matter who the father was, as the women ran the show and raised the children together. Men were not in charge. But once we went to patriarchal societies, men were afraid of the power of the woman to trick him, with their magical ability to give life. So on went the robes, the head coverings, the chastity belts, the chaperones.
Women - they will trick you every time.

Traditional power / role reversal. What Little Stevie (as well of the rest of the idjits who would hurl it as an insult) is really saying is that he's projecting worse than an IMAX, feels ACTUALLY powerless as a white male because he doesn't get to control anyone but himself let alone His Woman, and so is accusing others of his own non-admitted admitted weakness.

Fuck his fat ass.

Rough her up. And/or threaten to do it so she's terrified all the time. And he would know, wife-beater that he is.

35. It involves not just sexism, but racism, for the alt-right

Prepare for a deep dive into the dirty psyche of the American right wing.

A form of porn developed (said to be real behaviour too, but that may be only said by the alt-right weirdos who were watching the porn) - white men enjoying seeing their wives have sex with black men, and they were called 'cucks' in this. It's with this in mind that the alt-right has started using 'cuck' about anyone who isn't sufficiently racist or sexist enough for them. They think a 'real man' controls his wife, and also 'real Americans' control the world, and not behaving like a spoiled brat in politics and world diplomacy is like letting these damn foreigners screw your wife.

Make no mistake - anyone using 'cuck' to insult someone wants to be racist. It's basically the modern equivalent of "****** lover".

17. Urban dictionary meaning of "cuck" is

A word used by White Supremacists to solicit sex. Because they believe people whom they call cucks would want to fuck them. White Supremacists have no preference whether to be fucked by a flesh penis or a plus-sized strap-on, but black leather is mandatory.

The term was popularized during the 2016 Republican primary, when the repressed hormones of many White Supremacists spilled over and started lusting after Jeb Bush in public. Their cries of cucks were filled with their desire to feel the girth of Jeb's old wrinkly shriveled up cock deeply lodged inside them. Like Jeb, conservatives were often viewed by White Supremacists' as the primary objects of their sexual release, hence the name cuckservatives. White Supremacist forums were often dominated by coded discussions of the different positions they want the so-called cuckservatives to screw them in.

Cuck itself is an onomatopoeia derived from the moaning sound white supremacists make while fantasizing about getting fucked. It is NOT, as some trolls suggests, derived from "cuckold" - a fantastical troll logic only horny White Supremacists would believe in.

Until White Supremacists find better ways to get people to fuck them, the word cuck serves as an important cultural clue to help us better understand the unwavering depth of their erotic desires. It is also recommended to report them for sexual harassment should they call you such a thing.

26. I'll call Steve Bannon the living personification of the Seven Deadly Sins to his face.

He pretty much ticks off all the categories - Sloth, Envy, Rage, Lust, Gluttony, Pride, Greed - well, maybe not Despondency, but that does follow him, and I suspect his habit of picking up his toys and leaving when he doesn't get his way is based on feelings of inadequacy, which does have a link to Despondency.

39. Of course Bannon thinks he worse than a Democrat...He is a Jew.

He hates Democrats for their ideology.

He hates Jews due to their race, which he sees as inferior. That is what happens when we have a anti-Semite, white supremacist as a presidential advisor. And the presidents favorite daughter is married to a practicing Jew. Converted even.

And as Kushner gains further power Bannon will go increasingly off the rails. He is incapable of anything else.

I wonder if this isn't the real reason behind his suddenly being shipped out on assignments around the world away from his wife--assignments for which he clearly offers no expertise whatsoever.

It's an old trick used by sleazeball bosses over generations. Kushner's just dumb enough to fall for it.
