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.”

Others were similarly confused by the word.

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.”

Despite the growing movement for impeachment, advisors to President Donald Trump believe the bombshell reports about soliciting foreign election interference from Ukraine can be "spun as a positive" for the president's 2020 re-election campaign.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.
