Republicans call on Clinton, Obama to rein in "professional" anti-Trump protesters

Kellyanne Conway, Republican president-elect Donald Trump’s campaign manager, urged President Obama, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to use their influence to talk down those she described as “professional” agitators “masquerading as protesters.”

“I think that the President of the United States, Secretary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, perhaps, others can come forward and ask for calm and ask for a peaceful transition and ask their supporters, which are masquerading as protesters now — many of them professional and paid by the way, I’m sure — ask them to give this man a chance so that this country can flourish,” Ms. Conway said on Fox News Sunday…

“I know both Secretary Clinton and President Obama were very gracious, and I respect that a lot in the way they handled it the day after, two days after,” Mr. Giuliani said on ABC’s “This Week.” “But I wish they would say something about it, too. Because after all, these are supporters of President Obama and Hillary Clinton, and maybe they could say something about this. Really not the right thing in the democracy.”
