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

Trump,US Donald Trump,Michelle Obama

Excerpts of Obama's upcoming memoir were reported on Friday, including ones where she criticizes Trump, saying she won't forgive him for his years of spreading conspiracy theories to delegitimize her husband's presidency.

"Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk", she added.

"The whole thing was insane and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed", the former First Lady wrote. "And for this I'd never forgive him". She says she reacted in shock the night she learned Trump would replace her husband in the Oval Office and tried to "block it all out", according to a copy obtained by The Associated Press.

"But it was also risky, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks", she adds.

She expresses disbelief over how so many American women would choose a "misogynist" over Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton, "an exceptionally qualified female candidate".

Michelle also thought back to the first time she saw the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which Trump is heard bragging about sexually assaulting women.

The comments were some of Michelle Obama's most direct aimed at the current President, whom she has mostly avoided criticising since leaving the White House previous year.

Midterm lessons: five key takeaways from the election results
Democrats feel a sense of urgency about Mueller's investigation after the president asked for and received a resignation from U.S. The Democratic Party registered a historic win in the midterm elections and regained control in the House of Representatives.

The president also blasted a reporter who asked whether his newly-appointed Attorney Genera Matthew Whitaker would get involved in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Obama will reportedly launch her book tour at Chicago's United Center on Tuesday, and Oprah Winfrey will moderate the kick-off event.

Some accused Michelle Obama of hypocrisy. "I'll never forgive him for many other things".

She revisits the thrill of her romance with Barack, which began when she was his advisor at a Chicago law firm, describing it as a "toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonder".

At times, she feared she was damaging her husband's 2008 presidential campaign, especially after conservatives seized on a line from one of her speeches - taken out of context - that for the first time as an adult she was "really proud" of her country.

"Becoming" is part of a joint book deal with former president Barack Obama, whose memoir is expected next year, that is believed worth tens of millions of dollars.

It is one of the most awaited books about USA politics in years, and Obama does not mince words about her husband's successor - and his involvement in promoting the idea that Barack Obama was born overseas.
