Trump Jabs Vanity Fair For Apologizing For Video Mocking Hillary Clinton

"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 said on Twitter, invoking the derisive moniker he's given Clinton.

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

Four days after the video was published, a spokesperson for the magazine Beth Kseniak said that the video was "an attempt at humour and we regret [it]".

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).

Anna Wintour is the editor-in-chief of Vogue.

Wintour, the editor of Vogue, a sister publication of Vanity Fair at Conde Nast, additionally plays a role as artistic director for the publishing brand.

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

The clip is part of a series in which staffers give politicians resolutions for 2018. In past videos, Vanity Fair employees have jokingly advised press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to start a radio show with Bernie Sanders, in which he yells at her "in his Brooklyn accent" and she yells back "in her W.C.W. wrestling voice". "Get over your mommy issues". They mock the first woman to ever win the popular vote in a general election?

Some irate observers expressed their anger at the video in replies to Vanity Fair on Twitter, arguing that the magazine had "destroyed all credibility" in one tweet and suggesting that people should cancel their subscriptions or write letters to the editor.

Many have claimed the video was sexist and the hashtag #CancelVanityFair was trending.

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

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

"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!
