  • When Did Donald Trump become a Racist?

    The Philadelphia Tribune ^ | August 17, 2018 | Raynard Jackson
    With the mainstream media focusing on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots of last year, many news organizations are basically blaming President Trump for stoking the hatred and racial tension that led to the violence in that small college town, because of his coarse rhetoric on immigration and the NFL player protests. I will concede that Trump is not without blame in contributing to some of the coarseness of our society, but it’s hard to deny the fact that Trump has been consistent his whole, adult life. Trump has always been brash, arrogant, self-centered, abrasive in his language, and...

    “Welcoming the brilliant new editor of @vanityfair, Radhika Jones. And yes, those are fox tights in everyone’s hands, courtesy of Anna Wintour,” Glamour Editor Cindi Leive posted on Instagram. Jones was slammed back in November by Women’s Wear Daily for wearing a navy shift dress and a pair of similar tights that staffers were purportedly “aghast” over.

    Rebecca Johnson, who wrote a 1999 profile on ex- “CBS This Morning” host Charlie Rose for the New York Times Magazine, said Rose was an “unmitigated X” while she was writing the article. Johnson posted on Facebook this week: “We spent several days together, and I really came to dislike him.” She continued, “I had just signed a contract with Vogue and he asked me if I liked [then-Vogue-Editor-in-Chief] Anna Wintour. I replied that I didn’t ‘like’ her or not. It wasn’t that kind of relationship. When he sensed my increasing coldness, he SO weirdly called me up and threatened...

    Obama, Hu toast 'strategic mutual trust' at state dinnerBy Christina Wilkie - 01/19/11 10:30 PM ET President Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao toasted U.S. and Chinese collaboration and mutual interests on Wednesday night at a festive state dinner for 225 guests at the White House. Their toasts marked the high point of an evening notable for its strict adherence to the protocol and symbolism valued in Chinese culture, but which, at the same time, managed to fulfill the Chinese delegation's request for a thoroughly American dinner party. Guests dined on a meal of pear salad, lobster, ribeye steak and...

    The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has named its collection of used clothes—a sort of consignment shop one must pay to enter and where nothing is for sale—after Anna Wintour. A trustee of the Met since 1999, the editor of Vogue, artistic director of Condé Nast, and inspiration for The Devil Wears Prada has over the years raised some $125 million for the museum. Earlier this week, at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Anna Wintour Costume Center, Michelle Obama delivered a speech. Never have I read one quite like it. The first lady’s presence at the occasion...

  • Anna Wintour: Republicans cool to idea of Vogue editor as UK ambassador

    Republicans have attacked President Barack Obama’s consideration of Anna Wintour as America's next ambassador to Britain, with some claiming that the party’s Senators would move to block her appointment. Obama is believed to have placed Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, on a shortlist of candidates to replace Louis Susman, who this week confirmed he was stepping down as US envoy to the Court of St. James. Conservative critics described the potential appointment of Wintour, whose only political experience is raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for Obama’s re-election campaign, as “ludicrous” and “a non-starter”. …

    Merry Crony-mas! It's time to pass out the goodies. While President Obama's lips champion the middle class, his administration's old hands are preparing to lavish rewards on the creme de la campaign creme: his wealthiest political donors. Several media outlets reported this week that the White House is considering fashion doyenne Anna Wintour for a possible appointment as U.S. ambassador to Great Britain or France. The rumored short list also includes Obama campaign finance chairman Matthew Barzun and investment banker Marc Lasry. The three share one common, er, "qualification": Each raked in more than $500,000 for Team Obama 2012. As...

    On the face of it, Ms Wintour, 63, may not appear a natural candidate for international diplomacy. Her reportedly aloof and demanding personality has earned her the nickname “Nuclear Wintour” and inspired the waspish character played by Meryl Streep in the film The Devil Wears Prada. But according to Bloomberg News, Mr Obama has placed her on his short list to safeguard transatlantic relations at the Court of St James. It would be hard to find a better connected ambassador in the fields of fashion and entertainment than Ms Wintour, who was awarded an OBE for services to British journalism...

    Anna Wintour is officially a political-fundraising groundbreaker. The Vogue editor's "Runway to win" initiative -- which had famous designers like Tory Burch and Marc Jacobs creating bags, shirts and other gear for the Obama campaign -- brought in a lot more dough than some predicted. Campaign manager Jim Messina tells Bloomberg Businessweek that the venture, which had been mocked by some pundits, raised "just north of $40 million."

    High unemployment? A $16 trillion debt? Rising fuel prices? Perhaps the real issue of this campaign is that Vogue editor Anna Wintour wants to be appointed ambassador to France. At least that's the suggestion published in two eerily similar articles in The New Republic and The Daily Beast. The rumor (officially denied) is that dahling Anna is growing weary of New York and would like to make a big splash on the Paris fashion scene by showing up there as ambassador to France.  Both periodicals not only contain this same theme but even their titles are strangely similar. On top...

The movie mogul and the Vogue editor will co-host, sources said, while other co-chairs remain to be announced. The pair previously hosted an Obama dinner last year at Weinstein and Georgina Chapman's West Village townhouse. Tickets will go for $35,800 per head. Guests at Weinstein's fund-raiser last year included Gwyneth Paltrow, Tory Burch, Alicia Keys and Quentin Tarantino. Democratic booster Weinstein's also supported GOP candidates in the past, including Gov. George Pataki.

    Despite the best efforts of a compliant media to puff up the alleged star power of the Preezy of the United Steezy, the entertainment industry gloss on his most recnet high profile fundraiser in New York turns out to have been rather dull. Roger Friedman of Showbiz 411 reports: "Unless celebrities were invisible or shipped in from the roof through a chimney, the Obama fundraiser at Sarah Jessica Parker's house last night was not so star-studded. From every report filed, the main star who attended was Meryl Streep. Unless, she's suddenly changed her entire past practice of political donorship, it's...

    Sarah Jessica Parker is inviting people to go to her house on 6-14 for a fundraising dinner for Obama. She says he ended the war in Iraq. Oops, he was against the surge and the war would have dribbled on forever. She is proud that Obama allowed people to marry anyone they want. As if everyone believes in gay marriage and encourages it. Sarah Jessica also says that Obama created four million new jobs. Instead we lost four million jobs. And then she went on to say that we need him and he needs us. What do we need him...

    GOP Attacks Celebrity Support For Obama By David Nakamura June 4 President Obama dined last month with 150 guests at George Clooney’s California cottage. He exchanged quips in January with Spike Lee in the director’s New York City townhouse. Last fall, Obama entertained megastar Lady Gaga, who was seated in the front row of a Silicon Valley fundraiser in six-inch heels and a towering blond bouffant. Obama’s popularity with Hollywood glitterati is again on display as his campaign mobilizes its vast fundraising apparatus to amass cash in a campaign that is shaping up to be the most expensive in U.S....

Anna Wintour, the editor of Vogue magazine, has invited a couple of you peons to experience a momentary thrill in your dull lives by hanging out with the glitterati at an exclusive New York fundraiser for Obama.  Here is Wintour, on the heels of yet another terrible economic report, making her offering to briefly breath the same air as the liberal elite: Hi, I’m Anna Wintour. And I’m so lucky in my work that I’m able to meet some of the most incredible women in the world,...

    President Barack Obama collected some big bucks Thursday night at a star-studded fund-raiser in the New York home of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Among the guests: actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin; comedian Jimmy Fallon, designer Vera Wang, singer Alicia Keys, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who co-hosted the event. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was also there as the guests packed around five tables in a basement room. Hundreds of people awaited the president's arrival on the streets of the West Village near the Weinstein residence, a multi-story brick row house. Weinstein said he had...

    The big spenders who shelled out $30,400 a head for dinner with President Obama at the Four Seasons restaurant and at Anna Wintour's house didn't actually break any bread with him. After starting Tuesday night at a dinner for 60 high-rolling Democratic supporters hosted by hedge-fund billionaire Marc Lasry, Obama headed to a private room at the Four Seasons to wolf down steak, potatoes and broccoli with two aides before heading to Wintour's Greenwich Village home. Obama also gave a brief speech, saying he's not worried about his low poll numbers and he plans to tour the nation to drive...

He was wrong, of course, but it's the kind of declaration that bamboozles literary types by its very implausibility; something so obviously false must be profound, so it gets repeated at cocktail parties and invoked in book reviews (like this one) until it becomes an inside-out cliché, a false truism, a knowing nod towards nothing whatsoever. Still, an interesting question emerges if you reverse Capote's...
