Steve Bannon is Very Upset About Being Overweight and Looking Like a ‘Deranged Incel’

Apparently, Steve Bannon is more worried about his appearance than anyone would have guessed, especially when so many photos show him looking like he’s just slept for three weeks after hitting the Thunderbird (my dad’s favorite cheap booze) for 24 hours. Also, according to Raw Story, he’s a bit on the grouchy side about how listeners describe the program he hosts.

Bannon, a former White House adviser during the Trump administration was the focus of a detailed profile by The Atlantic. The story’s author Jennifer Senior interviewed Bannon and exchanged numerous texts with him. She also interviewed a few of his former colleagues, associates, and enemies in the hopes of showing the man’s more human side.

“There were times when my text interactions with Bannon felt like one prolonged Turing test,” Senior writes. “There were times when he almost resembled a regular human. He would talk about missing his father, who died in January at 100, and how strange it was to be in his childhood home alone. (Just sat in the family room for hours.) He would fret about his weight and express pleasure when a newspaper used a photo that did not, for once, make him look god-awful, like some deranged incel by way of Maurice Sendak.”

But Senior found that one sure way to get Bannon bent out of shape was to call his War Room program a podcast, leading him to insist it’s a TV show with an important visual aspect, per Raw Story.

“He broadcasts  from the ground floor of a Washington, D.C. townhouse, and there are cameras, bright lights, a backdrop that devoted viewers know well: a fireplace mantel displaying a gold-framed picture of Jesus and a black-and-white poster saying there are no conspiracies, but there are no coincidences. — stephen k. bannon,” Senior wrote.

It’s more than likely that potential viewers have been out of the loop because YouTube pulled his War Room program on January 8, 2021, for spreading election conspiracies — even though many of his colleagues don’t actually think he even believes these things — and the program has been banished to obscure streaming sites.

“The whole operation has an amazing shoestring quality to it,” Senior notes. “The audio occasionally cuts out or sounds like it’s bubbling through a fish tank; two of Bannon’s phones buzz throughout the show; the segment openers aren’t always ready when he needs them. It’s a bit like Father Coughlin stumbled into Wayne and Garth’s basement.”

Of course, this is a man who thinks Twitter employees should go to jail because they barred Trump from the platform for inciting the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol.

He rambled on about the nonsense below. And of course, he also allows dumb fools like The American Principles Project’s Terry Schilling on his show who think women should stay home barefoot and preggers. I’ve also included that silly video below.
