Memoir: Michelle Obama Upset 'Haters' Labeled Her ‘Angry’ Black Woman

Michelle Obama and Donald Trump

Michelle Obama is about to release her book 'Becoming Michelle, ' and did not hesitate to get at Donald Trump his actions towards her family in the past.

In her forthcoming memoir, "Becoming", Obama points to the president's participation in the "birther" movement, which promoted the theory that former President Barack Obama was not actually a USA -born citizen. Michelle went in-depth on Trump's comments, saying "What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington?". What if that person went looking for our girls? "Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk", she wrote. She said she would "never forgive" Trump for advocating the crypto-racist "birtherism" claims that her husband was not born in the US.

Trump retaliated on Friday in a White House press spray, saying he won't forgive Barack Obama for "what he did" to the US military.

Mr Trump's message, according to Mrs Obama, in words which appear in the book in bold print: "I can hurt you and get away with it". She writes lovingly of her family and gives a detailed account of her courtship with her future husband, whom she met when both were at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin LLP.

"The whole [birther] thing was insane and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed", Obama wrote in her memoir, according to a Washington Post review.

"But it was also unsafe, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks", she adds. President Trump, as a businessman, was attacking Barack Obama.

Obama also said her body "buzzed with fury" after hearing the "Access Hollywood" tape on which Trump bragged about being able to grab women with impunity. She says they had to do IVF to conceive their 2 daughters.

But she was more than impressed after meeting him, by his "rich, even sexy baritone" and by his "strange, stirring combination" of serenity and power.

"I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we don't talk about them", Obama told ABC News in an interview.

In her memoir "Becoming", set to come out Tuesday, Obama writes openly about everything from growing up in Chicago to confronting racism in public life to her amazement at becoming the country's first black first lady.

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