Trump tweets about Vanity Fair's controversial Clinton video

President Donald Trump blasted Vanity Fair on Thursday morning after the publication apologized for posting a "sexist" video earlier in the week, encouraging Hillary Clinton to take up knitting after her defeat in the 2016 presidential election.

The video, which featured a handful of Vanity Fair staffers offering cheeky New Year's resolutions for Clinton, didn't get much attention when it was first published on December 23.

The publication apologized for the video, saying in a Wednesday statement that it was an attempt at humor that "missed the mark".

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

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

Wintour is the editor of Vogue, not Vanity Fair, but she is artistic director of Conde Nast, the magazine chain that publishes both titles, and supported Clinton in the 2016 election.

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.

The Clinton video is just one of a series in which staffers offer snarky tips and resolutions to well-known politicos.

Liberals were shocked and appalled, including actress and Clinton-devotee Patricia Arquette who tweeted: "Hey STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F-CK THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO".

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. "I want to believe they gave each of those individuals an opt-out opportunity but they genuinely looked happy to do it".

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

"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 [for what it's worth]!

"Take up a new hobby in the new year", technology writer Maya Kosoff said in the video.
