Trump Blasts Vanity Fair After Poor Restaurant Review


President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter to express his feelings about Vanity Fair after the magazine gave one of his restaurants a bad review.

“Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine,” Trump tweeted. “Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!”

Carter is a writer for Vanity Fair who is credited as the first person to start the rumor that Trump has small hands after he described the real estate mogul as a “short-fingered vulgarian” during the 1980s in Spy magazine, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Although Trump has shown insecurity over the size of his hands, it was Vanity Fair's review of his Trump Tower Grill that drew his ire.

The review said the Ivanka's Salad “looked like a salad made by someone who believes that rich women only eat vegetables” and described the filet mignon as “overcooked and mealy” and “slumped to the side over the potatoes like a dead body inside a T-boned minivan.”

Even the fries that accompanied the burger weren't spared ridicule in the Vanity Fair review, which described them as “overcooked woody batons.”

The reviewer then had the taco bowl, which Trump made famous when he tweeted a photo of himself with the dish on Cinco de Mayo with the caption, “I love Hispanics!”

“Sadly, the taco bowl, perfectly adequate as it was, is not good enough to prevent Trump from deporting millions of Hispanics,” the reviewer wrote.
