Trump won’t ever attend the Met Gala again if Anna Wintour has her way

Anna Wintour, Vogue’s editor-in-chief and the woman famous for running the annual Met Gala with an iron fist, told James Corden she would not invite President Donald Trump back to the society event.

During a guest appearance on Corden’s “The Late Late Show,” the two took turns answering questions and eating gross foods, including bull genitalia and bacon-wrapped pizza, in a game called “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.”

When given the choice between telling Corden who she would never invite back to the Met Gala or eating pickled pig’s feet, Wintour answered with a laugh, “Donald Trump.”

The audience cheered and laughed along with Corden, who called it “a great answer.”

Trump had previously been a regular at the flashy Manhattan event since the 1980s. In fact, he proposed to his current wife, Melania, at the gala in 2004 — and the pair have attended at least nine of the events together between then and 2012, according to The Huffington Post.

Wintour, for her part, has been outspoken on her support for Hillary Clinton (and disapproval of the current president.) In October 2016, Vogue took the unprecedented move of endorsing a presidential candidate, throwing the fashion magazine’s weight behind Clinton.
