Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour speaks softly, but says volumes.

Wintour reminded everyone of that in a recent interview for the podcast The Economist Asks.


The interviewer, Anne McElvoy, pressed Wintour on her thoughts regarding First Lady Melania Trump's fashion sense and overall style.

Wintour's answer proved that class and shade aren't by any means mutually exclusive.

Instead of commenting on Melania Trump, Wintour pivoted to praising former First Lady (and most admired woman in the world) Michelle Obama.

Listen below:

"I think first lady Michelle Obama really was so incredible in every decision she made about fashion," Wintour said.

"She supported young American designers. She supported designers, indeed, from all over the world. She was the best ambassador that this country could possibly have in many ways, obviously, way beyond fashion."

McElvoy reminded Wintour that Obama is no longer FLOTUS, but Wintour gave not one frock:

"To me, she [Obama] is the example that I admire."

But Wintour didn't even stop there.

McElvoy asked if it was a "conscious" decision not to include Melania or the President's eldest daughter Ivanka Trump. Wintour answered by praising the Democratic women seeking the 2020 presidential nomination:

"There's so many women in politics that deserve celebration, whether it's Kirsten [Gillibrand] or Senator Harris, or Senator Warren. We just recently ran a piece in our current issue about five of the six political female candidates, all of which I felt deserved a place in Vogue."
"And how wonderful that after a lot of naysayers saying that after [Hillary Clinton] not succeeding that it would be very difficult to find a voice in the current presidential campaigns. How wonderful that that is not the case."
"I think that both Senator Warren and Senator Harris are among the top candidates right now."

People applauded Wintour's masterful answers.

The documentary The September Issue, available here, follows Wintour as she gets the most important issue of the year for Vogue to press.

There aren't too many things that would make you go, "Man, I'd rather go to hell than be here right now. Hell has demons, torture, fire, and all the ill-prepared pizza they can shove down my throat." However, if you had to choose between these people's predicaments and hell, you'd probably be ready to have pizza for dinner.

You don't need to have children to be successful, but gender roles and societal expectations are awful. Just ask any woman you know: Chances are she's been poked and prodded and interrogated over her decision not to have children.

Dad jokes can feel like the unloved step-sibling of the comical world. "Why would we laugh at something so obvious and stupid?"

Becuase it's hilarious, that's why. Just check out the following entries below and see for yourself.

Reddit user, u/GrotiusandPufendorf, wanted to know what the funniest jokes on the planet are when they asked:

What is your favorite dad joke?

A Murder Of Cows?

Dad: Look at that flock of cows over there.

Kids: A HERD of cows.

Dad: Of course I heard of cows, there is a flock of them right over there.

Note: pulled that joke successfully a few times, and my kids even did it to their summer camp instructor.

We Should Probably Leaf

At the park with my girls: "Dad, can we go play?"

Me: "sure, just stay away from those trees over there"

Girls: " umm...ok, why?"

Me: " I don't know...they look a little shady to me."

That Joke Killed!

Why do graveyards have gates?

Because people are dying to get in.

My Dad always told it passing a graveyard.

Stating The Obvious, But Still Hilarious

I had a terrible day yesterday. As I was walking home, a man in a wheelchair stole my camouflage jacket!

As he was wheeling away, I shouted after him, "you can hide but you can't run!"

That's Always The Point

Not a joke in the traditional sense but, when I'm at a restaurant and the waitress says "Do you wanna box for that?" I always reply with "No, but I'll wrestle you for it."

No one ever gets it but it makes me laugh. And that's the point, right?

I tell dad jokes.

Sometimes he laughs.

Believing in dub stuff as a kid is par for the course. When we're children, we're just tinier humans with less life experience, right? But let's be real- some of the dumb things we believed were actually really, really dumb.

They always say, don't meet your heroes. But here's the thing- sometimes your heroes are actually just chill, normal people. This can be refreshing in a world of egos.

Oprah Winfrey may no longer be doling out free cars by the dozens like she did on her long-running day time talk show.

But that doesn't mean her generosity is history.
