Megyn Kelly says Trump aide responsible for inciting violent threats against her

Megyn Kelly has, as of late, been receiving death threats and is now under the watch of armed guards, notes the New York Times.

The Guardian reports that the Fox News host holds Trump's transition team member and campaign social media director Dan Scavino partially responsible.

According to The Guardian, Kelly said at a Tuesday night Washington, D.C. event, "It's that far corner of the internet that really enjoys nastiness and threats and unfortunately there is a man who works for Donald Trump whose job it is to stir these people up and that man needs to stop doing that. His name is Dan Scavino."

Though there is no evidence the threats are a direct result of Scavino's online activities, he has without question made some fiery social media comments regarding Kelly, notes The Hill.

Among them is the tweet he wrote in October after Kelly's on-air clash with Newt Gingrich.

It read, "Megyn Kelly made a total fool out of herself tonight – attacking @realDonald Trump. Watch what happens to her after this election is over."
