"I think we're all dealing with some post-Trump stress disorder"

Since Acosta was in the middle of formulating his first shows, Stelter wanted to know “Do you feel like your rundown, your lineup is really different than it would have been in the Trump years?”

Acosta’s answer:

“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. 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 and it doesn’t have to have Donald Trump in the headlines for us to continue to exist.”
