President-elect Donald Trump took another shot at the media Thursday, this time declaring Vanity Fair is “way down, big trouble, dead!”
Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine. Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!

TheWrap reported that Trump’s campaign has had such difficulty finding a performer for the inaugural festivities that it offered ambassadorships to at least two talent bookers if they could deliver marquee names.
“There was a threatened lawsuit, resulting in a lot of back-and-forth legal letters between him and me. And we printed all of those,”
And Trump’s hands were a big conversation topic during the election. When Sen. Marco Rubio made a joke about Trump’s hands during the Republican presidential primary, Trump held up his hands and said, “Look at these hands. Are these small hands? And he referred to my hands if they’re small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee you.”
Vanity Fair isn’t the only media outlet to be targeted by the president-elect. Trump has criticized the Washington Post, CNN, and NBC News.
