These Anna Wintour & Trump Memes And Tweets Are Fabulously Funny

Vanity Fair became embroiled in a social media storm over a video in which Hillary Clinton was urged to quit politics for knitting - an attempted joke that backfired even before it drew a freakish tweet from Donald Trump. Considering the wording the president used to denounce Wintour, people thought his tweet was pretty ridiculous.

Vanity Fair's newly appointed editor is Radhika Jones, but until November the magazine was run by Graydon Carter, a celebrity editor who helmed the outlet for 25 years - and often ended up in Trump's crosshairs.

The glossy magazine chose to apologise after it received a barrage of criticism on social media for a video it published that suggested the former secretary of state should take up six resolutions for the new year. "Volunteer work, knitting, improv comedy. literally anything that'll keep you from running again".

Many have claimed the video was sexist and the hashtag #CancelVanityFair was trending.

'It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark, ' a representative for Vanity Fair said, according to Entertainment Weekly. The magazine has managed to alienate a wide swath of people with this scandal, from those who were angered by the video's sexism to those who dislike that the magazine apologized. He penned a column almost every month of 2017 bashing Trump, and suggested in his most recent piece that the United States might be developing "Stockholm syndrome" for its president.

President Trump also weighed in on the drama - tweeting early Thursday "Vanity Fair, which looks like it is on its last legs, is bending over backwards in apologizing for the minor hit they took at Crooked H".

Trump added that Anna Wintour "is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!"

Wintour, according to Trump, was "all set" to become the ambassador to the United Kingdom after her overwhelming financial support for Hillary Clinton.

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.

Meryl Streep's character is believed to have been based on Anna Wintour.
