here are a lot of mysteries surrounding the former White House strategist. But perhaps none more visible than the enigma of his very own face.
Steve Bannon is famous for many things: founding Breitbart, managing the successful campaign of Donald Trump, and owning a face that begs several questions.
To get to the bottom of what, exactly, is going on, The Tab enlisted the help of an actual dermatologist.
And sure enough, the man whose website has helped provide a big flashy platform for anti-Feminist, anti-gay, and anti-Semitic writers may have something to worry about.
“He just looks very unhealthy,” Dr Gregory Buford told the website, over and over again.
It turns out Mr. Bannon's biggest problem is that he may not be spending enough time taking care of himself.
Dr. Buford points out that Bannon is “overweight, he’s got a puffy face, which is suggestive of not a lot of sleep. He has probably made poor food choices. Looking at his face, we can see evidence of high levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.”
There are a few reasons Bannon might not be sleeping so well.
For one thing, he seems to spend a lot of time being really angry. Stress levels are clearly very high. (Can’t be fun to see yourself portrayed as the Grim Reaper on SNL, either.)
Dr. Buford warns that Bannon's problems may also not simply be cosmetic.
Noting “He’s got a lot of changes on his face – sun damage,” the doctor suggested that perhaps the strategist has failed to properly protect his own skin.
