Trump tweets about Vanity Fair's controversial Clinton video

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is capable of choosing her own hobbies

- Eddie (@EddieSolisJr1)Anna Wintour is editor-in-chief of Vogue, not Vanity Fair.

With the tweet, which was sent while he was at Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach County, Florida, the president waded into a controversy that existed largely online - and might well have been flickering out.

Posted last weekend, the video shows editors of Vanity Fair's Hive website offering toasts and New Year's resolutions to Clinton.

Actress Patricia Arquette replied: "Hey STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F*** THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO".

Surprisingly, the video did find one defender: conservative talking head Tomi Lahren.

Steadfast Clinton supporters like Peter Daou expressed their outrage over the joke, decrying the reference to "knitting" as sexist. We made silly New Year's resolutions for a bunch of politicians.

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.

Vanity Fair, trying to defuse criticism of a video mocking Hillary Clinton and her presidential aspirations, drew the derision Thursday of the man who defeated her in the 2016 election.

Ms Kosoff, the writer who made the knitting suggestion, reportedly took to her private Twitter account to defend the video. In an April 1988 issue of Spy magazine (which Carter co-founded), Trump was famously referred to as a "short-fingered vulgarian".

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

President Donald Trump noticed Vanity Fair's apology and tweeted about it Thursday.

That conundrum must have left Donald Trump's addled brain a little tuckered out because the slam that did come out was a garbled mess - in which he said Anna Wintour is "begging for forgiveness".

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.
