Trump's Attack on Anna Wintour Steers Backlash Away From Vanity Fair

Mr Trump added that Anna Wintour "is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!" Actress Patricia Arquette also criticized the magazine, writing, "Hey STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F-CK THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO".

The video was compiled by Vanity Fair's politics and business vertical The Hive.

While the majority of the replies to the video decried it as sexist and mean-spirited, some attributed it to Vanity Fair's attempt to be "edgy," or amusing - albeit, even those Twitter users said the jokes mostly fell flat.

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. "We made silly new years resolutions for a bunch of politicians". "Get over your mommy issues".

A number of liberals came to Clinton's defense.

"I blew up all the tweets and I framed them all", said Carter in the New York Times.

Gas prices reach new heights in Florida
The average daily gas price in the Detroit area is $2.62, representing a 22-cent increase from previous year . In Rhode Island, gas is up 11 percent from past year , when it was averaging $2.28 per gallon in the state.

The video, which VF described as "an attempt at humor" in its apology, suggested Clinton should take up knitting or go for more walks in the woods.

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

Others called out the publication for taking a shot at Clinton's career.

Trump said the publication was now "bending over backwards" to apologize.

His Thursday morning Twitter taunt at Conde Nast editorial director Anna Wintour, who is also the editor-in-chief of Vogue, for apologizing for an outrage-inducing Hillary Clinton video seems to have steered backlash away from the video itself. He even kept the barbs coming after winning the 2016 US election, tweeting last December the magazine's numbers were "way down" and that Carter was a "no talent". In 2012, Trump said he was "happy" to hear that President Obama was considering an ambassadorship for Wintour, calling her a "winner & really smart".

Before the president addressed it, the story hadn't received much coverage beyond online media, save for the outlet that inspires many of his tweets: Fox News.
