Donald Trump savages Vanity Fair for saying sorry to Hillary Clinton

29 December, 2017, 00:56 | Author: Priscilla Morrison

"It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark", Beth Kseniak, a spokeswoman for Vanity Fair said Wednesday.

President Trump renewed his longstanding feud with Vanity Fair on Thursday, mocking the magazine for apologizing over a video that poked fun at Hillary Clinton.

Many who supported former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election have stated their intention to cancel their subscriptions to Vanity Fair in response to a video many have considered to be sexist. While the video in question is part of a larger series (past episodesfocus on the would-be New Years' resolutions of Donald Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Gary Cohn), the Clinton video has riled the Twitter-verse in an altogether different way.

The tongue-in-cheek clip featured writers giving advice to Clinton and telling her to take up a hobby, such as knitting, to avoid running for President again.

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.

"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.

Mr Trump's tweet added that Anna Wintour "is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!"




The magazine's minute-long video showed writers and editors sipping champagne while coming up with all sorts of things Clinton could be doing now that she's no longer a presidential hopeful.

The video was compiled by Vanity Fair's politics and business vertical The Hive. "Get over your mommy issues".

"I blew up all the tweets and I framed them all", said Carter in the New York Times. It was there that Carter dubbed Trump a "short-fingered vulgarian", an insult that has followed the president to this day.

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

Earlier this year, Trump said on Twitter that Wintour came to his office to ask him to meet with Conde Nast editors.

Anna Wintour has been the editor-in-chief of VOGUE since 1988, NOT VANITY FAIR.
