Vanity Fair Apologises For Video Suggesting Hillary Clinton Takes Up Knitting

VANITY FAIR HAS come under criticism in the past week for a video in which it lists six New Year's resolutions for Hillary Clinton - one of which was to take up knitting.

"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", Trump tweeted. "Anna Wintour who was all set to be Amb to Court of St James's & a big fundraiser for CH, is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!" he tweeted.

With the tweet, which was sent while he was at Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach County, Florida, the president waded into a controversy that existed largely online - and might well have been flickering out.

"I'm just so happy that the mainstream media-the leftist mainstream media, might I add-Vanity Fair actually decided to make fun of Hillary Clinton", Lahren said.

Vanity Fair's political vertical The Hive is being slammed after the site posted a video in which staff talk about Hillary Clinton.

Surprisingly, the video did find one defender: conservative talking head Tomi Lahren. We made silly New Year's resolutions for a bunch of politicians. "Volunteer work, knitting, improv comedy - literally anything to keep you from running again".

Clinton's former adviser, Peter Daou propelled the hashtag #CancelVanityFair.

Rohit Sharma: India batsman equals fastest Twenty20 worldwide century against Sri Lanka

Where's the grand plan on North Korea?
The Council has struggled to contain North Korea as the country continues to violate sanctions-backed United Nations calls on. He said the US does not want war but "will use all necessary measures to defend itself against North Korean aggression".

Grinch in Chief: Nazareth Cancels Christmas Over Trump's Jerusalem Gambit
ISIS threatened war on us soil in response to the decision, and a group of Muslim leaders in 57 countries denounced Trump's move. Approximately 69 percent of the Arab town's 76,000 inhabitants are Muslims and 30 percent are Christians.

The backlash included a tweet from actress Patricia Arquette with her own proposal - stop telling women what they should or can do.

In a statement Wednesday, the magazine said the video was an attempt at humour that regrettably "missed the mark".

"I blew up all the tweets and I framed them all", said Carter in the New York Times.

Ms Kosoff, the writer who made the knitting suggestion, reportedly took to her private Twitter account to defend the video.

The video took jabs at 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Others called out the publication for taking a shot at Clinton's career.

Trump has a long-standing feud with Vanity Fair's former editor, Graydon Carter, who announced in September that he would step down by year's end. In an April 1988 issue of Spy magazine (which Carter co-founded), Trump was famously referred to as a "short-fingered vulgarian".
