Vanity Fair Apologises For Video Suggesting Hillary Clinton Takes Up Knitting

This is Hillary's problem right now: "She doesn't have anything to do".

Following the blunder, and after some staffers attempted to explain that the video was taken out of context (it was part of a series of parody videos directed at other figures including Donald Trump), Vanity Fair issued an apology.

On Twitter, Trump said the magazine was "bending over backwards in apologising for the minor hit". "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!"

Anna Wintour is so upset over Trump's tweet.

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

Some, however, did not see the amusing side of the one-minute video. "Volunteer work, knitting, improv comedy, literally anything that'll keep you from running again". A hashtag, #CancelVanityFair, spread on Twitter. Among those to respond to the clip was actress Patricia Arquette, who tweeted her own proposal - stop telling women what they should or can do.

Jairam Thakur to be Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister
Who is Jairam Thakur? His name was proposed by senior leaders Suresh Bhardwaj and Mahender Singh and seconded by others. Mr Thakur comes from the Mandi region, which till today has never had any saffron party chief minister in the state.

A spokeswoman said: "It was an attempt at humour and we regret that it missed the mark".

A number of liberals came to Clinton's defense. "History will judge that campaign, and it's always a period of time before they do", he said.

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

The magazine posted a video on Sunday suggesting a few New Year's resolutions for the former Democratic presidential nominee.

For the president, the uproar provided an opportunity to take a dig at two of his favorite targets: Clinton and Vanity Fair.

Trump has attacked Vanity Fair and its former editor Graydon Carter for years. Carter has been a critic of Trump's for many years, calling him a "short-fingered vulgarian" in the 1980s. He even kept the barbs coming after winning the 2016 USA election, tweeting last December the magazine's numbers were "way down" and that Carter was a "no talent".
