Trump Attacks Vanity Fair: ‘Way Down, Big Trouble, Dead’
Donald Trump is in a feud with Vanity Fair magazine over a recent article, which dissed a restaurant in Trump Tower.
The Hill reports:
President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday blasted Vanity Fair, claiming the magazine was in “big trouble.”
“Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.
“Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!”

A recent article in Vanity Fair said Trump Grill — a steakhouse in the lobby of Trump Tower — could be the worst restaurant in America.
“The allure of Trump’s restaurant, like the candidate, is that it seems like a cheap version of rich,” Tina Nguyen wrote, saying the restaurant “reveals everything you need to know about our next president.”
Trump’s tweet targets Carter, the editor at Vanity Fair who last year said his description of the billionaire as a “short-fingered vulgarian” in Spy magazine sparked a decadeslong feud.
In a piece published after the election, Carter also charged that only in America could “a man whose staff took away his Twitter account be given the nuclear codes.”
The president-elect often takes to Twitter to hammer critics of make campaign announcements. He frequently uses the medium to hit on the media, saying its coverage of him is inaccurate and biased.
Earlier this month, Trump suggested on Twitter he might not have to tweet as much if he was covered fairly by the press.
