Michelle Fields and Megyn Kelly have a lot in common these days.
Both are not well-liked by many Donald Trump supporters, both have been accused of exploiting their feuds with Trump for headlines, and both recently wrote their first books.
And apparently, they both have terrible book reviews on Amazon.
But are Trump supporters responsible for most of their abysmal book reviews? That’s what former Breitbart reporter Fields claims.
“The @Amazon reviews of my book and @MegynKelly’s book are almost identical. All Trump trolls who haven’t read it and are insulting us personally,” Fields complained on Twitter.

Fields may have a point. Several reviews of her book, “Barons of the Beltway,” make references to her scrum with Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who was fired after she accused him of violently tugging her arm.
Many reviewers claimed Fields tried to exploit her feud with Lewandowski for attention (and she did get a LOT of media attention for that), including several appearances on Megyn Kelly’s show, “The Kelly File.”
It also makes you wonder: Would Fields’ book actually have many reviews if not for “Trump trolls”?
Meanwhile, reviews for Kelly’s book, “Settle For More,” are also littered with references to Donald Trump.
One reviewer slammed Kelly for unfairly trashing Trump to get more famous:
“Read book. Tried to give benefit of doubt. Not impressed. She starts with Trump debate. All day of debate news reported her plans to destroy Trump before the debate occurred. I was not a Trump supporter but did not approve. Sick of media trying to destroy candidates. She was no different than CNN.”
Like Michelle Fields, Kelly was blasted as an opportunist.
There’s no way to be 100% certain if the negative reviews of Fields’ and Kelly’s books are mostly from “Trump trolls,” as Fields claims.
The LA Times insists some of Megyn Kelly’s poor reviews may be from Trump supporters, citing their curious timing.
“More than 100 negative reviews of Kelly’s ‘Settle For More’ appeared on Amazon’s site within hours of its release,” the Daily Mail noted.
After Kelly’s book publisher complained, Amazon took down most of the bad reviews (sounds like rigging?). Amazon is owned by liberal billionaire Jeff Bezos, who also owns the anti-Trump newspaper, the Washington Post.
