The media and elitist love for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, continues. It’s unhinged.

Vogue Magazine made its first political endorsement on Tuesday backing Mrs. Clinton for president.

The endorsement’s not surprising, given its editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, is a huge Clinton bundler. Ms. Wintour helped organize a multimillion dollar fundraiser for Mrs. Clinton in New York City just Monday night with celebrities Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway, Neil Patrick Harris, Julia Roberts and others.

What is surprising, however, is the picture the fashion magazine decided to use of Mrs. Clinton was shot in 1993. It’s a glamorous headshot, taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, with a black background, and a glowing, soft — younger — Mrs. Clinton. It reflects nothing of the current reality.

And so, it was mocked on Twitter.



“@voguemagazine @HillaryClinton who is the woman in your photo?” Women 4 Trump tweeted in response to the magazine’s endorsement on Twitter.

Mike Spade, replied: “@voguemagazine @HillaryClinton Seems rather #sexist/#ageist to use such an old photo. Couldn’t Photoshop a current 1 enough?”

Craig Solo simply asked: “Where’s her body?”

Others weren’t as polite, posting more recent, and well unflattering, pictures of Mrs. Clinton.
