How dare they!
Oh boy. The diehard fans of failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have unleashed their claws and attacked Vanity Fair after the publication issued a video to persuade her to retire.
They had the nerve to suggest she learn to knit.

The video is part of a series in which Hive staffers give politicians six New Year’s resolutions. The series has videos dedicated to White House chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and President Donald Trump.
But Clinton’s video appears to have evoked the biggest reaction. And that may have to do with its timing. The video was tweeted less than a week after political news site The Hill reported that Clinton was focusing on elevating her political group Onward Together and considering her role in the 2018 congressional elections.
Many people were offended by Hive’s condescending tone, especially considering Clinton’s extensive political résumé. Others argued that the video was flat-out sexist.
OH JUST LAUGH, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. Sexist? Do they not realize that there are females out there like me who have a handicapped hand and would love to learn to knit, but cannot due to the handicap?

This is really pathetic. You should be embarrassed.

You didn’t think this one through very well.

These people even started the hashtag #CancelVanityFair on Twitter.

I agree. That’s what I found most offensive. The utter lack of awareness of their privilege. A cheap shot, indeed.
I want names of all involved in this idiotic example of “journalism” run amok.????#CancelVanityFair#CancelVanityFair#CancelVanityFair#CancelVanityFair

4. While the initial furor will blow over – though #CancelVanityFair is going strong now – the taint never will, especially without an apology. Let’s face it, folks – VF covers boldface names, and there are three prominent Clintons.
