CNN’s Jim Acosta told Brian Stelter this morning that journos like himself are suffering from “post-Trump stress disorder” and are having a tough time finding things to talk about now that Orange Man Bad has retired to Florida:

Trump did say the media would miss him:

Here’s an idea: Just don’t talk about Trump?
I’d bet any money that Jim “I’m In Danger” Acosta dreams of Trump nightly.
Listen to this answer: aside from pathetically admitting he has “post-Trump-stress-disorder,” he says he can cover the news without reference to Trump, but every sentence is about Trump, proving he can’t: https://t.co/oZUQPTCiva

Acosta also bitched about high-speed rail in America and wanted to know why he can’t get reliable WiFi on the Acela from New York City to DC:
CNN’s @Acosta on Biden infrastructure bill: “As far as I’m concerned, can we just have a damn high-speed train in this country? I mean, can I please get to New York from Washington without problems on the Acela? And can I get on the Wifi by the way?” pic.twitter.com/0CaEDikDXx

Another classic “Dear Diary” moment:
Poor Acosta, tough life.

Does he really think millions of Americans give a crap about how the high-paid journalist can’t figure out how to pay for his own WiFi while on a train?
Millions of people are living in food poverty as a result of shutdowns, neoliberal immigration and warmongering policies and Acosta is on TV complaining his wifi doesn’t work on the Acela between New York and D.C.

He’s out of touch (they all are):
Not knocking fast and efficient travel here. Just think conversations about America’s infrastructure needs should involve everyday Americans outside of the Acela corridor.
