Madonna, who hasn’t recorded a decent song in decades, wanted some press, and she knew just how to get it.

“Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I’ve thought a lot about blowing up the White House, but I know that this won’t change anything,” she said in January.
What did the media do? Nothing. (Google it: Hardly anything.)
In May, unfunny comedian Kathy Griffin released photos of herself holding a bloody decapitated head that looked like the president. The media? They reported it — for a day or two — then moved on (while Hollywood celebrities like Jim Carrey, Alec Baldwin and others defended the photos).
A New York City play in June depicted a Trump lookalike being brutally stabbed to death in a bloody assassination during a production of “Julius Caesar.” The media’s response? Yawn.
But over the Christmas holiday, a Vanity Fair staffer suggested that Hillary Clinton take up knitting (to keep her from running for president in 2020), and
Wait, there’s more. Another non-funny comedienne, Sarah Silverman, called for a military coup to take out Trump. Rosie O’Donnell talked on Twitter about “stopping” Trump. Snoop Dogg, stoned since the 1990s, put out a music video in which he assassinated a clown dressed as Trump.
The media? Meh.
Even Trump noticed the deafening silence and mocked the mainstream media.
Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!

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

What’s incredibly uncool is your horribly conceived and executed video telling a former First Lady, Secretary of State, and first woman major party presidential candidate to go away and take up knitting. Sexist and pointless trolling. #CancelVanityFair #resist #BoycottVanityFair

5. Every Clinton story VF *ever does* from now till kingdom come (certainly for the next couple of decades, forever in media land) will be criticized with the lens of "knitting." It's the nastiest, most sexist disgrace … and it's forever.

#CancelVanityFair started trending on Twitter. And it didn’t take long for the culture and fashion magazine to cave and apologize.
“It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark,” said a representative for the publication in a statement.
Trump had some fun with the debacle.
Vanity Fair, which looks like it is on its last legs, is bending over backwards in apologizing for the minor hit they took at Crooked H. Anna Wintour, who was all set to be Amb to Court of St James’s & a big fundraiser for CH, is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!

But what’s most telling is how little the media — or liberals — cared about the president of the United States being threatened with violence, being blown up, beheaded, assassinated. Make one little joke about a 70-year-old woman taking up knitting, and everyone loses their minds.
