Trump hits a magazine — and the wrong editor — over Hillary Clinton apology

  • Trump hits Vanity Fair for apologizing for a video critical of his former rival Hillary Clinton.
  • He also mocks Anna Wintour, a Clinton supporter and the editor-in-chief of Vogue.

On his holiday break in Florida, President Donald Trump took aim Thursday at Vanity Fair for apologizing for a video that was critical of his former rival Hillary Clinton.

In the process, he mocked well-known magazine editor Anna Wintour, who is not Vanity Fair's editor.

In a tweet, Trump contended that the magazine "is bending over backwards in apologizing for the minor hit they took" at Clinton in the video. He claimed that Wintour, a Clinton supporter, "is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness."

Vanity Fair's video posted over the weekend suggests New Year's resolutions for Clinton and encourages her to take up hobbies after her 2016 presidential election loss. Critics saw the video as sexist.

Vanity Fair then apologized, saying the attempt at humor "missed the mark."

Wintour is editor-in-chief of Vogue, not Vanity Fair, and is the artistic director of both publications' parent company, Conde Nast.

Vanity Fair's editor-in-chief is Radhika Jones, who succeeded longtime editor and Trump nemesis Graydon Carter earlier this month.
