Forget ‘covfefe’: Steven Bannon just invented a new word and no one knows what the hell it means

Published

Move over, covfefe — 2018’s already got a new indecipherable word.

“The chance that Don Jr. did not walk these Jumos up to his father’s office of the 26th floor is zero,” Breitbart executive and former White House aide Steve Bannon told writer Michael Wolff in Fire & Fury: Inside the Trump White House. He was referencing Donald Trump Jr.’s infamous Trump Tower meeting with a cabal of Russians, but the strange term “Jumos” really stuck out to most readers.

“What the f*ck is a ‘Jumo’?” Spin‘s Maggie Serota asked in an article speculating that the term might “a new slur.”

As Yahoo News’ Garance Frank-Ruta noted, Urban Dictionary provides several possible definitions, which range from Dominican Spanish slang for drunk to “the Act of J*cking off well [sic] experiencing the munchies.”

Yet another user came up with what appears to be a more plausible definition — “JUnior Moscow Operation.”

“The consensus among Spin staffers is that Bannon was probably referring to the Russians as ‘Jamokes,'” Serota wrote in Spin, “which Urban Dictionary defines as a ‘clumsy loser who is incapable of doing normal human tasks.’ The term probably got lost in translation when the interview recordings were transcribed, likely by someone other than Wolff.”

The government's response to the pandemic has further enriched the wealthy, while everyday people, especially Black and Brown workers, face sickness, death, and destitution. Government handouts to the rich are unsurprising, since they repeat the century-old pattern of "rescue packages", but another pattern is more perplexing: why have business leaders not stepped up to demand a robust public health response, which would ultimately be in their own self-interest? The titans of industry have mostly stood by in the face of Trump's criminal negligence, which has devastated much of the 99% but also endangers the wealthy.
