Trump lashes out at Vanity Fair for backtracking on Hillary Clinton video

Two survivors stranded on rocks were winched to safety

President Donald Trump has lashed out at Vanity Fair after the magazine apologised for an online video mocking Hillary Clinton.

Vanity Fair's "The Hive" tweeted a video that offered New Year's resolution suggestions to Hillary Clinton.

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

"Anna Wintour, who was all set to be Ambassador to Court of St James's and a big fundraiser for CH, is beside herself in grief and begging for forgiveness!"

Clinton advisor Adam Parkhomenko described the video as "embarrassingly not funny" and "awkward to watch".

One professor posted a multi-tweet thread offering advice on how the magazine can recover from a "major scandal over a stupid sexist video".

The backlash included a tweet from actress Patricia Arquette with her own proposal - stop telling women what they should or can do. "We made silly new years resolutions for a bunch of politicians".

Daou, an aide on Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign who launched the liberal website Verrit earlier this year, said he thought the video was "tone-deaf" on the heels of the #MeToo movement.

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

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.

Trump tried to weigh in with a tweet this morning, but he doesn't seem to realize that fashionista Anna Wintour is the editor of the fashion magazine Vogue, not Vanity Fair. 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 US election, tweeting last December the magazine's numbers were "way down" and that Carter was a "no talent". She said it had "missed the mark".
