Michelle Obama hits out at Trump in new book

09 November 2018

In some of her most extensive public comments on her White House years, the former first lady also lets her fury fly over President Donald Trump's "bigotry and xenophobia" - dangerous, deliberate rhetoric, she wrote, that risked her family's safety.

When asked for his comments on Michelle Obama's strong words against him in her upcoming memoir, Donald Trump resorted to spouting unsubstantiated claims (aka lies). "I'll never forgive him [Barack Obama] for what he did to our military", he said.

CNN reports that Trump responded to the criticism Friday by telling reporters, "She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always expect a little controversy".

"I'll give you a little controversy back, I'll never forgive (President Barack Obama) for what he did to our U.S. military".

She also reflects on early struggles in her marriage to Barack Obama as he began his political career and was often away.

"The whole thing was insane and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed", the former First Lady wrote.

Secretaries claimed Mr Obama was both brilliant and "cute" - although Michelle Obama was sceptical, writing that white people went "bonkers" any time you "put a suit" on a "half-intelligent black man". It was "deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks", Obama said.

She writes that when she finally allowed him to kiss her, "this odd mix-of-everything-man" set off a "toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfilment, wonder".

In a separate interview with ABC News ahead of Tuesday's release of her memoir, "Becoming", Michelle Obama also revealed she suffered a miscarriage 20 years ago, and that she underwent in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to conceive her two daughters.

"It was an expression of hatred that had generally been kept out of polite company, but still lived in the marrow of our supposedly enlightened society - alive and accepted enough that someone like Donald Trump could afford to be cavalier about it", she writes, according to the Post.
