Trump criticises Vanity Fair over Clinton video response

Kosoff had plenty of defenders, too, many of whom ridiculed Clinton's supporters for what they saw as an overreaction to a tame video.

Journalists from The Hive offered Mrs Clinton six New Year's resolutions that would keep her out of politics in a short online video. Actress Patricia Arquette also criticized the magazine, writing, "Hey STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F-CK THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO".

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.

Democratic strategist and former aide to Clinton and John Kerry, Peter Daou‏, also came out to defend Clinton.

Mr Trump took to Twitter overnight to criticise the magazine for "bending over backwards in apologizing for the minor hit".

"It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark", Beth Kseniak, a spokeswoman for Vanity Fair, told several outlets. "Get over your mommy issues".

Mr Trump's tweet added that Anna Wintour "is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!" "History will judge that campaign, and it's always a period of time before they do", he said. While the video in question is part of a larger series (past episodesfocus on the would-be New Years' resolutions of Donald Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Gary Cohn), the Clinton video has riled the Twitter-verse in an altogether different way.

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

Trump has a long-standing feud with Vanity Fair's former editor, Graydon Carter, who announced in September that he would step down by year's end.

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.

A rep for Conde Nast did not immediately respond to a request for comment to Trump's response.

But on Thursday, Trump couldn't resist a poke.
