Former first lady Michelle Obama blasts President Donald Trump in her new book, recalling how she reacted in shock the night she discovered that he would replace her husband in the Oval Office and tried to block everything & # 39 ;.
In her memoires & # 39; Becoming & # 39 ;, released on Tuesday, Michelle Obama denounces the president for bragging in 2005 about grabbing & # 39; of women by the p *** y & # 39 ;.
She remembers how her body was buzzing with anger & # 39; after seeing the notorious Access Hollywood tape, in which Trump brags about sexually abused women.
She also detonated the Trump & # 39; birther campaign, which questions her citizens' citizenship, who calls it brave and dangerous, & # 39; deliberately intended to raise the wing nuts and coke & # 39 ;.
She wrote: "The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean, of course, the underlying intolerance and xenophobia barely hidden. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to raise the wing nuts and coke.
"What if someone with an unstable spirit loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls?" Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless insinuations, put the safety of my family at risk. never forgive him. "
And she accuses Trump of using body language to stalk & # 39; stalk & # 39; during an election debate. She says that Trump Clinton followed the stage, was too close and tried to reduce her presence.
The message from Trump, according to Obama, in words that appear in the book in dark print: I can hurt you and get away with it. & # 39;
Obama writes that she assumed that Trump & # 39; grand & # 39; was when he announced his presidential career in 2015. She expresses disbelief about how many women have a & # 39; misogyny & # 39; choose against Hillary Clinton, & # 39; an exceptionally qualified female candidate.
In shock: Michelle Obama says in her new memoirs that she tried to block everything & # 39; when she discovered that her husband would be succeeded by Donald Trump. She and Barack Obama met the Trumps for the first time in November 2016 after his election victory and again during his inauguration
Notorious: the 2005 & # 39; p *** y & # 39; tape saw that Trump brags until then-access Hollywood host Billy Bush: & # 39; If you are a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do everything. & # 39;
The attack on Trump comes after her husband used the campaign trail to criticize his successor in a way that had not previously been seen by a former president in post-war politics.
He spoke to a series of rallies and condemned the tone and policy of Trump.
The only known encounters between Trump and Michelle Obama were just after the election and on the day the Obama's left the White House, and Donald and Melania welcomed Trump before being sworn in as the 46th president.
She met Trump for the first time in the White House when he and Melania went there just after his election victory in November 2016, but the meeting seems to have been short.
Michelle had tea with Melania Trump and the two children's upbringing in the White House, with the then First Lady giving her successor a tour of the East Wing.
The book is a publication phenomenon and is part of a joint deal with her husband that earned them a well-known advance of $ 65 million. His memoirs will be released next year.
Stalking & # 39 ;: Michelle Obama says that Donald Trump tried to use body language during the second presidential debates to intimidate Hillary Clinton
Obama writes openly about everything from growing up in Chicago to confronting racism in public life to her astonishment to become the first black first lady in the country.
Obama said the book describes her life as "being held up as the most powerful woman in the world." to be taken away as a & # 39; angry black woman & # 39 ;.
She wrote: & # 39; I was feminine, black and strong, which applies to certain people. . . only translated to & # 39; angry. & # 39; It was another harmful cliché, one that was always used to drag minority women to the edges of every room. . . I started to feel a bit angry now, making me feel worse, as if I were fulfilling a few prophecies that the haters had come up with for me. "
Obama described the feeling of being bullied during her husband's campaign in 2008. She wrote: "If I had learned something from the ugliness of the campaign, from the myriad ways people tried to describe me as angry or indecent, it came that public judgment came in to fill every emptiness. . . . I knew I would never allow myself to record that again. & # 39;
She also reflects on early battles in her marriage to Barack Obama when he started his political career and was often away.
She writes that she & # 39; a handful of times & # 39; have met a counselor and realized that they have more & # 39; the lead & # 39; had her luck than she had realized. & # 39; This was my pivot point & # 39 ;, Obama explains. & # 39; My moment of self-arrest. & # 39;
She writes lovingly about her family and gives a detailed account of her courtship with her future husband, whom she met when they were both at the law firm Sidley Austin LLP from Chicago; she was initially his advisor. Secretaries claimed that he was both brilliant and & # 39; cute & # 39; was, though Michelle Obama was skeptical and wrote that white people were going crazy & # 39; when you & # 39; a suit & # 39; on a half-intelligent black man & # 39; explained. She also felt that his photo had a 'hint of nonsense & # 39; had.
But she was more than impressed after having met him, through his rich, even sexy baritone & # 39; and by its' strange, exciting combination & # 39; of serenity and strength. This strange mishmash-of-all-man & # 39 ;, when she finally let him kiss her, put an "overthrow of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonderment & # 39; in progress.
