Donald Trump Tweet-tacks Vanity Fair For "Regret" Over Hillary Clinton Ding

President Trump accused Vanity Fair Thursday of "bending over backwards" to apologize for a viral video that angered Hillary Clinton supporters.

Vanity Fair recently apologized for its "6 New Year's Resolutions for Hillary Clinton" video.

The editors suggest she vow to take up knitting, volunteer work or any hobby that would keep her from running again for president.

"It (the video) was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark", said Vanity Fair in a statement, Entertainment Weekly reported.

However, Twitter commenters accused Vanity Fair of using veiled sexism to criticize the first woman ever to secure a presidential nomination from a major US political party, according to The Washington Post. "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!"

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.

Wintour is the editor-in-chief of Vogue, not Vanity Fair.

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

It went over about as well as you'd expect, with many on the "triggered left" sharply criticizing the publication for it's "sexist" take on the most admired woman in the America. A-list celebrities like Patricia Arquette even weighed, suggesting the publication stop telling women what they should or can do. 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".

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

Some, however, did not see the amusing side of the one-minute video. "I want to believe they gave each of those individuals an opt-out opportunity but they genuinely looked happy to do it".

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

Carter seemed to take the ridicule in stride.

This wasn't a Hillary hit piece either, for what it's worth!
