Vanity Fair faces backlash for suggesting Hillary Clinton learn to knit

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

Among the suggestions: that Clinton take up knitting, volunteer work or any hobby that would keep her from running again for president.

Journalists from The Hive offered Mrs Clinton six New Year's resolutions that would keep her out of politics in a short online video.

The piece was widely blasted on Twitter, which Vanity Fair addressed in a statement yesterday by saying "It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark".

Liberals were shocked and appalled, including actress and Clinton-devotee Patricia Arquette who tweeted: "Hey STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F-CK THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO".

Vanity Fair drew significant criticism this week over a video proposing a series of mocking "New Year's resolutions" for former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

"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", he tweeted.

Trump went on to add that Anna Wintour was "a big fundraiser" for Clinton and had been "all set" to be ambassador to the Court of St. James's (the formal title used in the United Kingdom for the American ambassador).

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.

The Vanity fair crew said the former Secretary of State would do well to try knitting.

In an earlier report in August, the paper said Uber was losing roughly $9,000 a auto , 18 times more than previously believed. The Journal did not offer any figure as to the amount Fair might have spent to acquire Uber's leasing unit.

Vanity Fair is edited by Radhika Jones, who took over this month for its longtime leader, Graydon Carter.

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

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.

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.

Library of Congress will no longer archive every tweet
Even back then, creating this archive was an huge task, and as Twitter has grown and changed, it became more and more unfeasible. 1, 2018, the Library will only acquire tweets "on a very selective basis", a white paper published this month makes clear.
