President Donald Trump on Thursday weighed in on a viral Vanity Fair video that received backlash online for comments a writer made about 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Instead, it suggests that she should take more photos in the woods, because "how else are you going to meet unsuspecting hikers?" and take up a new hobby in the New Year - like "volunteer work, knitting, or improv comedy...".

"It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark", Beth Kseniak, a spokeswoman for Vanity Fair said Wednesday.

"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.

The tender offer values Uber at $48bn (£36bn), nearly a third lower than its most recent valuation of $69bn. A spokesperson for Kalanick did not return a request for comment.


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).

The hashtag #CancelVanityFair began trending yesterday as commenters pledged to no longer subscribe to the magazine for its video. Among those to respond to the clip was actress Patricia Arquette, who tweeted her own proposal - stop telling women what they should or can do. "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.

Kosoff had plenty of defenders, too, many of whom ridiculed Clinton's supporters for what they saw as an overreaction to a tame video. You seemed really adept.

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

President Donald Trump tweeted about a viral Vanity Fair video on Thursday. It was there that Carter dubbed Trump a "short-fingered vulgarian", an insult that has followed the president to this day.

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