Donald Trump savages Vanity Fair for saying sorry to Hillary Clinton

Adjust Comment Print

As President Trump likely heads into another day on the golf course, he's keeping a laser focus on the most important issue of the day: Vanity Fair's recent bit about Hillary Clinton.

The publication said it "missed the mark" when it published a video featuring Vanity Fair editors offering Clinton ideas for a New Years resolution.

Trump went on to add that Anna Wintour was "a big fundraiser" for Clinton and had been "all set" to be ambassador to the Court of St. James's (the formal title used in the United Kingdom for the American ambassador).

While the majority of the replies to the video decried it as sexist and mean-spirited, some attributed it to Vanity Fair's attempt to be "edgy," or amusing - albeit, even those Twitter users said the jokes mostly fell flat.

The video was compiled by Vanity Fair's politics and business vertical The Hive. Actress Patricia Arquette also criticized the magazine, writing, "Hey STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F-CK THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO".

Among the suggestions: that Clinton take up knitting, volunteer work or any hobby that would keep her from running again for president.

Stronger snow showers and lake-effect snow could be an issue for areas near the lake, according to the National Weather Service . More clouds will overspread the state Friday night and temperatures will bottom out in the single digits and lower teens.


Clinton supporters were so angry over incident that they created a #CancelVanityFair hashtag on social media.

Mr Trump and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders have also been targets of the apparent attempt at light-hearted Christmas content.

"I think coming at the tail-end of the year in which women are finally getting some sort of visibility for how they're treated, the timing is just what made this such a story", Daou said in a phone interview with CNNMoney Thursday.

Some, however, did not see the amusing side of the one-minute video. "I want to believe they gave each of those individuals an opt-out opportunity but they genuinely looked happy to do it".

So, all in all, 2017 will end as it began.

"I don't appreciate being taken out of context to make me seem super sexist", she said on Twitter. This wasn't a Hillary hit piece either, fwiw [for what it's worth]! "We made silly new years resolutions for a bunch of politicians".
