Vanity Fair had the audacity to make fun of Hillary Clinton in a humorous video this week. Liberals aren’t laughing about it. In fact, they’re mad as hell. How dare someone make fun of Hillary?
The Huffington Post reports:
Vanity Fair Gets Called Out For Suggesting Hillary Clinton Take Up Knitting
Vanity Fair staffers are ringing in the new year with Champagne and cheap shots at Hillary Clinton.
The magazine’s politics and business vertical, Hive, published a snarky video on Tuesday featuring editors and writers holding Champagne flutes while telling the former secretary of state to give up and retire in 2018.
“Take up a new hobby in the new year,” suggested Vanity Fair writer Maya Kosoff. “Volunteer work, knitting, improv comedy ― literally anything that will keep you from running again.”

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.
This video is insulting. You should all be embarrassed of yourselves. Telling a woman what to do-specifically a woman of her accomplishments-is sexist and gross. Enjoy the fallout.

Hey STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F-CK THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO. Get over your mommy issues.
