CNN’s Acosta on Contentious Trump Presser: ‘Sounded Very Much Like a Pity Party,’ Trump Sounded ‘Depressed’

‘Almost defeated in the way he was talking about these election results’

RUSH EXCERPT: 

ACOSTA: “Despite the fact that they were framing this as a victory lap and he was tweeting up a storm like he was all fired up for 2020, he sounded, I thought, very depressed, very despondent, almost defeated in the way he was talking about these election results. I think that’s probably why you saw things spiral out of control. We’re not used to — the President is not used to seeing himself lose and he lost big. He lost the House of Representatives.”
