Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly’s new book, Settle for More, was just released this week, but it’s already attracting a flurry of negative reviews on Amazon. Most of these short, one-star reviews appear to come from supporters of Donald Trump, spurred on by posts on pro-Trump Reddit forums and writing things like, “Megyn Kelly has a disastrous agenda between the covers of her new book…her main agenda is to trash President-elect Trump” and “I bet she is just angry because Trump rejected her.”
Many also come with the kind of one-word declarations favored by the president-elect’s Twitter account, i.e. “Boring!” and “Terrible!” Most of the reviews are not “verified purchases,” meaning they’re from people who didn’t actually buy the book on Amazon. At the time of this writing, the book has 134 one-star reviews (56 percent of the total reviews submitted). Only two of them are from verified purchases.
Trump and Kelly have clashed in the past, most notably when the then-candidate responded to Kelly’s critical debate questions by declaring “she had blood coming out of her wherever.” Since then, though, the two seem to have patched things up: Trump appeared on Kelly’s prime-time special Megyn Kelly Presents, and Kelly appeared on Live! With Kelly the morning after Election Night telling Americans to “keep an open mind” about Trump.
