the feud continues
Back in December, Vanity Fair published a not-so-nice review of President-elect Donald Trump's steakhouse, Trump Grill. Shortly thereafter, the president-elect took up arms on Twitter, calling out the "really poor numbers" of the magazine. "Way down, big trouble, dead!" he wrote. It was the most recent spat in a long history between Vanity Fair and Trump, who called the magazine out via tweet as early as 2011.
Vanity Fair, far from backing down on its biting criticisms of Trump Grill, decided to wear its scarlet letter proudly, proclaiming on its homepage to be "the magazine Trump doesn't want you to read." It was a clever response — but not the final blow.
With its latest issue, Vanity Fair called attention to Trump's latest criticism again by printing the tweet in full proudly on its cover, right near Chris Pratt's chiseled right pectoral muscle. Trump has yet to respond — via Twitter or otherwise.
