Megyn Kelly to Trump aide: Stop stirring up social media

Associated Press logo Associated Press 12/7/2016

WASHINGTON (AP) — Megyn Kelly is calling on President-elect Donald Trump's social media director to stop encouraging hostile elements among some of his supporters.

London's The Guardian reports the Fox News anchor said at a speaking event in Washington on Monday that a small group of Trump supporters "really enjoys nastiness and threats." She said Dan Scavino's job during the campaign was "to stir these people up and that man needs to stop doing that."

Scavino was highly critical of Kelly after she sparred with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in October, over allegations of sexual misconduct made against Trump. Scavino tweeted that Kelly "made a total fool out of herself" and said "watch what happens to her after this election is over."

Scavino is now a member of Trump's transition team.
