Donald Trump takes aim at Vanity Fair


By Angeli Kakade, Veuer

Vanity Fair is the latest big name to be on the receiving end of Donald Trump's negative commentary on the media.

On Thursday, the President-elect took to Twitter saying, "Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @vanityfair Magazine. Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!"

Carter, who has been the magazine's editor since 1992, coined the term, "short -fingered vulgarian" during his time at Spy Magazine. The term started the long-running joke about Trump's hand size.

The hit at Vanity Fair comes after the magazine's online page, Hive, published a string of headlines including, "Trump Grill could be the worst restaurant in America," and, "Someone has finally agreed to perform at Donald Trump inauguration."

The magazine has also been critical of Trump for failing to distance himself from his business entities.

This is not the first time Donald Trump has taken aim at media he sees as critical towards him.

On Monday, Trump tweeted, "Just watched @NBCNightlyNews - so biased, inaccurate and bad, point after point. Just can't get much worse, although @CNN is right up there!"

However, Trump does reserve praise for certain media tweeting just after the Vanity Fair tweet.

He wrote, "Thank you to Time Magazine and Financial Times for naming me 'Person of the Year' - a great honor."
