For liberals, Vanity Fair went too far.
Hillary Clinton is regarded as the ultimate symbol of resistance against Donald Trump and his administration, and her loyalists couldn't take it when Vanity Fair released a list of New Year's resolutions for the former secretary of state.

Some of the Vanity Fair staff compiled a hilarious list of things for Hillary to do in 2018. The list included things like working on the sequel to her book, titled “What the HELL Happened,” knitting, teaching classes on alternate nostril breathing, and meeting random strangers while hiking.
Perhaps the most vicious was the straightforward, “It's a year later and time to move on.”
Was Vanity Fair intending to be as harsh as it comes across? Twitter certainly didn't have a kind reaction to it:
Doing cutesy mean satire to appeal to millennials' hatred of Hillary Clinton is beneath you. Or it used to be. The only way to save yourself is to do this to Bernie and Biden. Oh, and FU to everyone who participated.

Besides being completely out of touch, this video just isn’t funny. Delete your account.

Vanity Fair tl;dr: Six young white people holding glasses of champagne would like Hillary Clinton to abandon her life's work and platform and just shut up. Good to know. https://t.co/cELDKdVmYd

That didn't go as planned.
