President-elect Trump has cordial meeting with Condé Nast editors

Donald Trump met with Condé Nast's top editors at 1 World Trade Center today for an off-the-record (surprise!) chat.

Despite the off-the-record nature of the meeting, a few tidbits have nonetheless emerged; WWD reports that insiders described the meeting as "bizarre", while a source told Politico that "questions were sharp" but "not personal", covering all of PEOTUS's favorite topics: race, hate crimes, Russia, Putin, climate change, women, feminism and abortion.

A spokeswoman for Conde Nast said that the "meeting was off the record and we are not commenting".

Trump was joined by Kellyanne Conway, who will be counselor to the president once Trump takes office, and Hope Hicks, who he has tapped as his director of strategic communications. Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and New Yorker editor David Remnick attended the meeting that included various Conde Nast executives. "Will go this AM".

The subtle "fashion protest", as it was called by sources, was also a protest against the "olive branch" that was extended to Trump by Condé Nast higher-ups following a candidacy that was denounced by numerous company's editors in their own magazines - especially artistic director Anna Wintour. Whatever Trump's answers were, he will never be held to them, as the meeting was-again-off-the-record.

Vanity Fair was the target of one of Trump's tweets last month, after it published a negative review of an eatery in Trump Tower.

The president-elect has long skewered the press and has repeatedly accused mainstream media of conspiring against him and his presidential campaign. It reprinted Trump's tweet on the cover of its most recent issue: "Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @Vanityfair Magazine".

"It wouldn't be my first choice to spend a Friday morning in a group like that", Carter said. "Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!"

Carter, whose feud with the president-elect dates back to the 1980s when his Spy magazine referred to Trump as a "short-fingered vulgarian", offered to skip the Trump meeting but Wintour insisted.
