I'll Never Forgive Obama for What He Did to Our Military

"But it was also risky, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks", Michelle wrote. "My moment of self-arrest". President Trump, as a businessman, was attacking Barack Obama.

Other criticism in the book was aimed at Trump's comments about women on the now-infamous "Access Hollywood" tape, as well as his conduct during debates with his 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton.

He added that he would never forgive her husband Barack Obama "for what he did to our USA military". And memoirs by former first ladies, including Clinton and Laura Bush, are usually best-sellers. Michelle also explained how shocked she was that the country elected a "misogynist" over "an exceptionally qualified female candidate".

While some fans have criticized the price as too high, 10% of tickets at each event are being donated to local charities, schools and community groups.

In "Becoming", Obama shares both pain and joy.

Obama also reiterates that politics isn't for her, alluding to her previous dismissal of a potential 2020 presidential run.

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". She has every right to be angry about that as a human being.

Midterm election a ‘big day’ for Republicans
Trump's aggressive campaign blitz, which paid off in some key victories, suggests he is likely to continue leaning into the fray. Spending to support candidates backing tougher gun control surged this year, even as campaign spending by the NRA declined.

Many simply took aim at the former first couple.

The remarks faded from the news, but Mrs Obama sensed lasting damage, a perception that she was "disgruntled and vaguely hostile".

Others just trashed her memoir as a waste of trees.

She found confidence in repeating to herself a favorite chant: "Am I good enough?" The Obamas received a joint $65 million dollar book deal with Penguin Random House a year ago.

The Obamas have said they will donate a "significant portion" of their author proceeds to charity, including the Obama Foundation. "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".

When asked about this on America's Newsroom, Henry said he couldn't begrudge Mrs. Obama for her position, which he likened to Tucker Carlson as the Fox host hits back at those responsible for the threatening protest at his house earlier this week.

Last year, she launched a program to help empower girls worldwide through education.
