Michelle Obama says she'll never forgive Trump over birther conspiracy: memoir

Posted November 09, 2018

"It was depleted, and I had to fix it", Trump said.

In her new memoir, titled Becoming, Obama dismissed the so-called "birther" conspiracy, describing it as concealed racism, Fox News reports.

Obama writes that she assumed Trump was "grandstanding" when he announced his presidential run in 2015.

Becoming is out November 13.

She remembers how her body "buzzed with fury" after seeing the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape, in which Trump brags about sexually assaulting women. That's often the case with the memoirs of former first ladies, including Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush. Obama (54) will head out on a multi-city arena tour to promote the memoir, with celebrity friends like Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon tapped to moderate the events.

In the book, which will be released on November 13, Obama reveals that she assumed Trump was "grandstanding" when he announced his presidential run in 2015. "Michelle Obama is a momma bear when it comes to her family". The Obamas met at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin LLP, and Michelle was skeptical at first.

"I felt like I failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we don't talk about them", the former first lady said in an interview broadcast Friday on ABC's "Good Morning America". "I don't blame Michelle Obama for being angry about the attacks she and her husband faced, and I don't blame Tucker for being fired up for the nastiness". She also thought his picture had a "whiff of geekiness". "And for this I'd never forgive him", she wrote in her book, according to the Washington Post.

Their first kiss set off a "toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfilment, wonder", she wrote.

Throughout her husband's life in politics, she fought to balance public and private needs, and to maintain her self-esteem.

Widely praised as a gifted orator and communicator, Obama has long said she has no interest in running for office, although she held a few campaign-style rallies before the midterms urging people to register to vote. "I love the honesty and the humor and the beauty with which she addressed the romance of her marriage and the tribulations of her marriage and motherhood, and all of those things that we as women all can relate to".

Last year, she launched a program to help empower girls worldwide through education. It costs thousands of dollars for every "cycle", and many couples require more than one attempt.
