Jim Acosta: CNN Reporters Are 'All Dealing with Some Post-Trump Stress Disorder’
Leftist host discusses struggles with CNN's Brian Stelter
Far-left reporter Jim Acosta is complaining that he and his fellow CNN colleagues are struggling with "post-Trump stress disorder."
During a Sunday segment on CNN's "Reliable Sources," Acosta and host Brian Stelter discussed their struggles in the post-Trump era.
Stelter asked Acosta, “Do you feel like you are rundown, your lineup is really different than it would have been in the Trump years?”
Acosta replied: “When you asked me if I was rundown, I was wondering if you were asking me how I felt during the Trump era.
"I think we’re all dealing with some post-Trump stress disorder,” Acosta said.

"There are questions about why aren’t Republicans getting on board with these Biden proposals," Acosta continued.
"There were Republicans getting on board with overturning the election just a couple of months ago, so we shouldn’t have high expectations for that.
"But in terms of stacking shows and what comes first, what comes second, Brian, you and I both know this all too well.
"We did cover the news before Donald Trump came along, and we did it pretty well.
"There’s going to be plenty of stuff in the news put there, and it doesn’t have to have Donald Trump in the headlines for us to continue to exist.”
"When he was president, he was doing things that were beneath the audience of the presidency," he added.
"Now he’s doing things beneath the office of the post-presidency.
"He’s not going to change, but we need to change with the times.”
