Trump on Twitter (Dec 28) - Vanity Fair, Hillary Clinton

Vanity Fair apologizes for Hillary Clinton video Vanity Fair apologizes for Hillary Clinton video

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.

In the video, which Vanity Fair said was meant to be amusing, the editors offered Clinton suggestions on new hobbies that would prohibit her from running for president again, like taking up knitting or volunteering.

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

Vanity Fair faced sharp criticism on Wednesday from supporters of Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonGrassley blasts Democrats over unwillingness to probe Clinton GOP lawmakers cite new allegations of political bias in FBI Top intel Dem: Trump Jr. refused to answer questions about Trump Tower discussions with father MORE after the magazine posted a video with "New Year's resolutions" for the former presidential candidate that included retiring from politics.

On Twitter, Trump said the magazine was "bending over backwards in apologising for the minor hit". "Get over your mommy issues". "Anna Wintour, who was all set to be Amb to Court of St James's & a big fundraiser for [Crooked Hillary], is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!"

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


The moral? If you have anything nice to say about Hillary Clinton - even an apology for saying something mean about her - Trump doesn't like you. She doesn't work on Vanity Fair exclusively.

The creation of the video and the suggestiions to take up hobbies such as knitting left a bad taste in the mouth of many who saw the bit.

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.

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".

Wintour is editor in chief of Vogue and artistic director for all Conde Nast, which publishes Vanity Fair.

But on Thursday, Trump couldn't resist a poke.
