As New Year's Eve approaches, people with any sense of self-actualization whatsoever are starting to think about their year-end resolutions. As this dog turd of a year comes to an end (finally), people can't help but hope that they'll be able to do something to make the world better in 2018. The easiest way to do that is by challenging yourself to do better.
However, it appears that Vanity Fair doesn't have any interest in making the world a better place. Instead, the publication thought it'd be simply hilarious to post one of the most condescending videos we may have ever seen.
Vanity Fair made a video of 6 New Year's Resolutions that Hillary Clinton should make.
Maybe it's time for Hillary Clinton to take up a new hobby in 2018 https://t.co/sbE78rA5At— VANITY FAIR (@VANITY FAIR)1514048451.0
The first resolution Vanity Fair came up with for Hillary was that she should write another book.Specifically, a sequel to her New York Times bestseller What Happened. The nebbish champagne drinker in the video has a hilarious idea of what the title should be: What the Hell Happened? It's a hilarious joke, obviously. A real knee slapper. We can barely contain our laughter.
This woman thinks that the former U.S. Secretary of State should go hiking more often.Brilliant. Again, really funny stuff here, guys.
You know what Hillary Clinton — the woman who won more votes than any other presidential candidate in U.S. history aside from Obama — should do? According to this woman, she should take up knitting!Or improv comedy! Or volunteer work! In 1978, Clinton became the first female chair of the Legal Services Corporation. In 1979, she became the first female partner at her law firm. In 2000, she was elected the first female Senator from New York. And in 2016, she became the first woman to be nominated for the president by a major U.S. political party. Despite all that progress, though, the edgelords of this Vanity Fair video think it's time for her to pick up the knitting needles.
Oh yeah, and about that whole Richard Comey thing.You know, that little issue of Comey releasing a letter mere days before the election that ultimately cost Hillary the presidency? Yeah, Vanity Fair thinks that Clinton needs to just get over it already. Their other resolutions include teaching a class on alternate nostril breathing and another *hilarious* joke about fixing the autocorrect on her phone. The response to Vanity Fair's completely tone deaf and tasteless video was swift and vicious...
Activist and actress Patricia Arquette does a great job of summing up our own feelings:

Despite being incredibly condescending and just all around super gross, the Vanity Fair resolution video is also pretty darn sexist.

To sum it up, people are not happy about this video.
