Podesta Admits: I’ve Been Sleepless Since Trump’s Election

"I've been so tired lately, maybe I shouldn't have so much late night pizza..."

John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager lamented that he loses sleep just about “every night” since Clinton’s loss in the 2016 elections.

Podesta appeared on CNN’s “New Day” and talked about Clinton’s famous email scandal, her role in the Russian investigation. Podesta stated that President Trump’s behavior was so “unprecedented” and shocking, that it has profoundly changed his life.

While it’s unclear that Podesta ended up losing any sleep over the release of his 50,000 something emails by WikiLeaks, talking of President Trump, Podesta stated “You never saw that behavior from any other president who’s talking about the person they beat.”

“I think it really just bugs the hell out of him that she got 3 million more votes than he did, and he keeps coming back to that. Obviously, we bear the burden of having lost the Electoral College, so I lose sleep about that every night,” he added.

He mentioned that he believes that Clinton has a deep understanding of the mistakes she made during her presidential run and that she will be talking about them and about way the country could be made a better place in her upcoming book, entitled “What Happened.”

“I think [Clinton has] reflected on the mistakes that she made, what she might have done different, but I think she’ll also talk [in her upcoming book] about where the country is and how to move forward,” Podesta stated.

“That’s what she’s always done in her life when she’s gotten knocked down,” Podesta explained. “She’s tried to make a positive contribution coming out of that, and I think that that’s what this book will attempt to do.”

Clinton’s memoir, titled “What Happened,” is to be released in September. The introduction of the book states, “In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.” But it remains to be seen how many of Clinton’s real secrets will be revealed in this book.

The publisher summary of Hillary’s upcoming book describes a, “story of that campaign and its aftermath — both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation” and that “Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.”
