Donald Trump savages Vanity Fair for saying sorry to Hillary Clinton

Adjust Comment Print

This is Hillary's problem right now: "She doesn't have anything to do".

"Vanity Fair, which looks like it is on its last legs, is bending over backwards in apologizing for the minor hit they took at Crooked H", the president tweeted.

Anna Wintour is so upset over Trump's tweet.

The video was compiled by Vanity Fair's politics and business vertical The Hive.

The US magazine uploaded the video entitled Six New Year's Resolutions for Hillary Clinton last week - but has faced a backlash online since.

But three days later, after the holiday had passed, one line in the video became the focus of intense criticism. "Volunteer work, knitting, improv comedy - literally anything that will keep you from running again".

The hashtag was started by Mrs Clinton's former adviser Peter Daou. A-list celebrities like Patricia Arquette even weighed, suggesting the publication stop telling women what they should or can do.

Outspoken actress Ms Arquette told the journalists to "get over your mommy issues".

Trump Loses Most Admired Man Title to Predecessor
Clinton "remains arguably more prominent than other contenders", Jones wrote in a blog post announcing the findings. It's a rare result, since, for the most part, Americans will name the current president as Most Admired Man.

In a statement yesterday, the magazine said the video was an attempt at humor that regrettably "missed the mark". "History will judge that campaign, and it's always a period of time before they do", he said.

Kosoff, meanwhile, has been met with an avalanche of vitriol for her role in the gag, prompting her to make her Twitter account visible only to those she allows to see it.

The video quickly made its rounds on social media and angered many, who thought the comments to be sexist and promoting a double standard.

The magazine posted a video on Sunday suggesting a few New Year's resolutions for the former Democratic presidential nominee. The outrage shot the publication to the top of the Twitter trends, with a few famous women voicing their concerns as well.

Vanity Fair is edited by Radhika Jones, who took over this month for its longtime leader, Graydon Carter.

Trump has long responded in kind to Carter, who stepped down at Vanity Fair this month, calling him, among other things, a "no talent" and "sloppy".

President Donald Trump noticed Vanity Fair's apology and tweeted about it Thursday.

That conundrum must have left Donald Trump's addled brain a little tuckered out because the slam that did come out was a garbled mess - in which he said Anna Wintour is "begging for forgiveness".
