Vanity Fair Apologises For Video Suggesting Hillary Clinton Takes Up Knitting

Share

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.

'Dangerous wind chills' forecast for Wednesday; wintry mix possible during weekend
Snow is expected to begin falling around commute time Thursday morning and continue throughout the day. For example, Carletta said on Christmas Day in Fargo this year, the low was minus 19 degrees.

Obama beats Trump in America's Most Admired Man poll
Seventeen per cent of the Americans who polled said Obama was the man they admired most , down from 22 per cent past year . Clinton "remains arguably more prominent than other contenders", Jones wrote in a blog post announcing the findings.

Flu season likely to peak in the coming weeks
The Hill Country's off-again, on-again winter weather is the prime time to get influenza and be calling work to say you're sick. The Centers for Disease Control continues to recommend an annual flu vaccine for all people ages six months and older.

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".
