‘Are you kidding?’ Vogue endorses Hillary Clinton with ‘sexist’ photo from 1993!

Vogue magazine announced its first-ever endorsement of a presidential candidate, throwing its full support behind Hillary Clinton with a photo more than two decades old.

“Vogue has no history of political endorsements,” read the endorsement published Tuesday. “Editors in chief have made their opinions known from time to time, but the magazine has never spoken in an election with a single voice. Given the profound stakes of this one, and the history that stands to be made, we feel that should change.”

The magazine cited the Democratic presidential nominee’ stance on immigration, support for LGBTQ rights, her foreign policy experience as well as her support of women’s rights and gun control as reasons for their endorsement.

The publication’s use of a photo of Clinton from 1993 was what had some Twitter users scratching their heads.

So true. Modern day “feminism” dictates that we don’t worry about a woman’s looks, let alone age. But forget all that. We have an election to win here.

The magazine felt it needed to share that “For the record, we have also featured Donald Trump—or, more particularly, his family members Ivana, Marla, Melania, and Ivanka—multiple times in our pages.”

Although it did forget to mention that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is a longtime Clinton supporter.

Yet Vogue’s first official foray into political endorsements did not go over too well on social media. One Twitter user wisely pointed to the apparent double standard at the fashion magazine.

And for many others, that picture just had no explanation.
