Michelle Obama blasts Trump in new book

Michelle Obama blasts Trump in new book

When her husband Barack chose to run for president in 2007, Michelle said she was unprepared for the extreme ferocity and criticisms that awaited her family along the campaign trail.

She goes on. "What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls?", she wrote, according to the Post, which obtained an early copy of the book.

"Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk", she added. "And for this, I'd never forgive him", she wrote. A fact check from the New York Times a year ago notes that "The military budget did shrink slightly during the Obama administration as the United States pulled out of combat operations, and because of the budget restrictions imposed by Congress known as sequestration". "She got paid a lot of money to write a book, and they always insist that you come up with controversial", Trump said. In her book "Becoming", set to come out on Tuesday, Nov. 13, she denounces the president for bragging to a TV host in 2005 about sexually assaulting women. "It was depleted, it was old and exhausted, and I had to come in and fix it".

In her book, Michelle describes Trump's actions towards Barack as "crazy and mean-spirited", explaining her belief that "its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed".

She also denounces Trump's "birther" campaign questioning her husband's citizenship, calling it bigoted and unsafe, "deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks".

She told the television station: "We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken".

Other criticism in the book was aimed at Trump's comments about women on the now-infamous "Access Hollywood" tape, as well as his conduct during debates with his 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton. "I was now starting to actually feel a bit angry, which then made me feel worse, as if I were fulfilling some prophecy laid out for me by the haters", she reportedly writes in her memoir. "And for this I'd never forgive him". She says they had to do IVF to conceive their 2 daughters.

"This unusual mix-of-everything-man", when she finally let him kiss her, set off a "toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonder".

Mrs Obama writes openly about everything from growing up in Chicago to confronting racism in public life to her amazement at becoming America's first black first lady.
