Not long after Donald Trump announced his campaign for president, he publicly clashed with the host of "The Kelly File" on Fox News, Megyn Kelly, during the first Republican primary debate. Now with the election in the past, the popular host is speaking out and has harsh words for a member of the Trump campaign.

Megyn Kelly speaks

During the first Republican primary debate in August 2015, Megyn Kelly pressed Donald Trump on his controversial history women, noting comments that included referring to females as "fat pigs" and "dogs." In the aftermath of the debate, Trump made it a habit to attack Kelly, referring to her as "overrated" and a "bimbo," while appearing to make comments about her menstrual cycle.

Though she has stayed professional since their confrontation, the Fox News host been forced to deal with serious backlash from Trump supporters. As reported by Mediaite on December 6, Kelly accused a top advisor to the Trump campaign of putting together online abuse that was directed at her.

Speaking at an event in Washington, D.C. Monday night, Megyn Kelly opened up about what it was like dealing with Donald Trump and his campaign during the last 19 months. "The vast majority of Donald Trump supporters are not at all this way," Kelly made sure to say.

"It’s that far corner of the internet that really enjoys nastiness and threats," Kelly said, before adding, "Unfortunately, there is a man who works for Donald Trump whose job it is to stir these people up." The man, she noted, "His name is Dan Scavino."

Scavino history

Scavino made news in October when he commented on a heated discussion on the show between Megyn Kelly and Trump surrogate Newt Gingrich. Taking to his offical Twitter account, Scavino appeared to threaten Kelly, noting, "Watch what happens to her after this election is over." Kelly told the audience that the worst part of the online abuse, allegedly directed by Scavino, is the security threats.
