Does he know the difference between Vogue and Vanity Fair?

Donald Trump has lashed out at Anna Wintour for Vanity Fair's apology to readers following the release of a video that called for Hillary Clinton to give up her career in politics.

In a tweet earlier today, Trump stated that the Condé Nast publication was "bending over backwards in apologizing for the minor hit they took at Crooked H", adding that "Anna Wintour.. [was] beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!".

While Anna Wintour is the current creative director of Condé Nast, which owns Vanity Fair, she's better known as the long-reigning editor-in-chief of American Vogue. It's not known whether Trump intended to take a hit at Condé Nast as a whole, or just doesn't know the difference between the two fashion magazines.

Vanity Fair were forced to apologise after they received backlash following the release of a condescending video titled “Six New Year’s Resolutions for Hillary Clinton”. The clip saw some of the magazine's staff writers offer advice to the former Democratic candidate, suggesting she spends 2018 writing a sequel to her book 'What Happened' titled 'What The Hell Happened?' and taking up a new hobby, like knitting, to keep her from running for president in 2020. 

Perhaps Trump is just bitter that Wintour vetoed him from the Met Gala?
