Jim Acosta went on CNN on Sunday to claim that members of the media are dealing with “post-Trump stress disorder” in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidency.
“Do you feel like you are rundown, your lineup is really different than it would have been in the Trump years?” asked Brian Stelter.
“When you asked me if I was rundown, I was wondering if you were asking me how I felt during the Trump era,” Acosta replied, according to The Washington Examiner. “I think we’re all dealing with some post-Trump stress disorder.”
“There are questions about why aren’t Republicans getting on board with these Biden proposals,” he added. “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,” Acosta continued. “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.”
This comes after Trump lashed out at Democrats and the media in an Easter message.
“Happy Easter to ALL, including the Radical Left CRAZIES who rigged our Presidential Election, and want to destroy our Country!” Trump said. “For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends them. Now they are going big time with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections. It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far!”
“Happy Easter!” he added.
