Is ‘Jivanka’ The Ultimate Put-Down For Jared And Ivanka?

White House supremo Steve Bannon has a new nickname for rival Jared Kushner, and his wife, Ivanka Trump.

According to Axios, Bannon has taken to referring to the couple as “Jivanka.”

It’s a moniker that appears to poke fun both at their celebrity aspirations, and at how Kushner owes his White House influence to his place in the Trump family.

According to Axios, “Jivanka” are seeking to oust Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. Bannon is standing up for Preibus, despite their ideological differences, because he sees him as an ally in the bigger turf war with the Trump relatives.
