Anna Wintour Believed in Roger Today, and Says ‘Everything is Great’ With McKinsey

rsz cimg2169 Anna Wintour Believed in Roger Today, and Says Everything is Great With McKinseyRoger Federer’s number one fan, Anna Wintour, was perched in her regular seat in the second row of the players box this afternoon during a surprisingly tough third round win over former U.S. Open champion, Lleyton Hewitt.

After the match, I bumped into Anna and asked if she was at all nervous today, especially after Roger dropped the first set to Hewitt.

“Well, Lleyton is a very tough competitor, and he was getting every serve back,” she said. “But we believed.”

Then I asked her about McKinsey. Vogue is one of two Conde Nast magazines that the consulting firm is taking the longest, deepest look at as it prepares a series of cost-cutting recommendations for Chairman Si Newhouse.

“Everything is great!” she said. “Okay, I’m off.”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
