Trump Blasts Vanity Fair Apology for Hillary Clinton Video

President Donald Trump has lashed out at Vanity Fair after the magazine apologised for an online video mocking Hillary Clinton.

Mr Trump took to Twitter overnight to criticise the magazine for "bending over backwards in apologizing for the minor hit".

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.

The overarching theme of the Vanity Fair video seems to be that Clinton's resolutions should focus on a singular theme: Not to wade into politics again anytime soon. "We made silly new years resolutions for a bunch of politicians", she said. "Volunteer work, knitting, improv comedy - literally anything to keep you from running again".

Steadfast Clinton supporters like Peter Daou expressed their outrage over the joke, decrying the reference to "knitting" as sexist.

Others were expressing their anger at the magazine with hashtags like #cancelVanityFair, #byeVanityFair, and #NeverVanityFair.

It wasn't an easy game, it was really hard work and I have no problem with that. "I just want more out of myself". Overall it could have been better.


Outspoken actress Ms Arquette told the journalists to "get over your mommy issues".

Another staffer poked fun at Clinton's defeat in the 2016 Presidential election by saying, "Put away your James Comey voodoo doll". You are telling women everywhere to f*ck off & be silent if we don't succeed at every attempt we make.

Trump said the magazine's apology was the latest example of news media bias in favor of Clinton.

The editors of Vanity Fair's "Hive" section held a glass of champagne in hand as they took turns presenting the Democratic fixture with their ideas. It was there that Carter dubbed Trump a "short-fingered vulgarian", an insult that has followed the president to this day. Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!

Trump also called out Anna Wintour, the artistic director of Vanity Fair publisher Condé Nast, on Thursday implying that she would have given Clinton favorable press in exchange for an ambassadorship.

That conundrum must have left Donald Trump's addled brain a little tuckered out because the slam that did come out was a garbled mess - in which he said Anna Wintour is "begging for forgiveness".
