Trump hits Vanity Fair for apologizing for Hillary video
President Trump on Thursday attacked Vanity Fair for apologizing for a video in which a writer encouraged Hillary Clinton to take up knitting.
The president cited the apology as the latest example of what he sees as the news media’s bias in favor of Clinton and Democrats.
“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,” he tweeted.
Trump also took a shot at Anna Wintour, the artistic director of Vanity Fair publisher Condé Nast.
“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!”
Wintour, however, is best known for editing the fashion magazine Vogue, which is published by the same company.

Vanity Fair faced a major backlash from Clinton supporters on Wednesday after it published a video containing “New Year’s resolutions” for the former Democratic presidential candidate.
The video suggested she should quit politics to take up knitting or take “more photos in the woods.”
“It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark,” the magazine said in a statement.
Wintour, a major Democratic donor, has feuded with Trump since the 2016 campaign.
She said in October she would never invite the former business mogul back to the Met Gala, the famous New York City social event she chairs.
Trump tweeted while at his West Palm Beach, Fla., golf club, where he has spent several days during his Christmas vacation.
Thursday marks his 87th visit to a golf club as president, according to a count compiled by NBC News.
