As Steve Bannon makes a dramatic reappearance in the headlines, people have been remarking on how different he looks, with skin as soft and unsullied as a newborn baby.
Bannon attributed his improved appearance to molting recently, something he says happens to him every few years.
“Unlike most people I do not lose skin cells continuously, but periodically shed my whole skin all at once exposing a new one that has grown underneath.”
When he feels it’s time, Bannon says he simply has to rub himself against a rock to create a tear in the old skin and then slither out of it.
“It also gets rid of all the parasites that have attached themselves to you, which is nice.”
