CBS News reports:
Vanity Fair is trying to defuse criticism of a video mocking Hillary Clinton and her presidential aspirations. In a statement Wednesday, the magazine said the online video was an attempt at humor that regrettably “missed the mark.”
Posted last weekend, the video shows editors of Vanity Fair’s Hive website offering toasts and New Year’s resolutions to Clinton. Among the suggestions: that Clinton take up knitting, volunteer work or any hobby that would keep her from running again for president.
The backlash included a tweet from actress Patricia Arquette with her own proposal — stop telling women what they should or can do.
Maybe it’s time for Hillary Clinton to take up a new hobby in 2018 pic.twitter.com/sbE78rA5At

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. Anna Wintour, who was all set to be Amb to Court of St James’s & a big fundraiser for CH, is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!
