In her memoir, Becoming, Barack Obama's wife also denounces Mr Trump's "birther" campaign, which questioned her husband's citizenship, calling it bigoted, unsafe and "deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks".

"I felt lost and alone and I felt like I failed", she added, "because I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we don't talk about it".

Mrs. Obama, said she and Barack Obama underwent fertilization treatments to conceive daughters Sasha and Malia, now 17 and 20.

Michelle Obama also writes about her reaction to Trump being elected president and her thoughts while she was watching his inauguration, writing, "I will always wonder about what led so many women, in particular, to reject an exceptionally qualified female candidate and instead choose a misogynist as their president". "My moment of self-arrest".

Before eviscerating Trump, though, Obama discusses her childhood, from growing up in a "cramped apartment on the South Side of Chicago" to how she struggled with her perception as an "angry" black woman. Her "sweet, attentive husband" was at the state legislature, "leaving me largely on my own to manipulate my reproductive system into peak efficiency", she said. "And we get help with our marriage when we need it", she writes. That's often the case with the memoirs of former first ladies, including Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush. "And for this I'd never forgive him", she wrote in her book, according to the Washington Post.

Alibaba is today hosting its Singles' Day Sale, which happens to be one of the biggest online sales in the world . The spending binge has for years eclipsed Cyber Monday in the US for online purchases made on a single day.

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 Becoming, Mrs Obama shares both pain and joy. She was initially his adviser. "And once the voters have spoken, you know, we live with what we live with".

She also writes about falling in love.

But until now, she's not extensively shared so many details. She delivered an epic smackdown at her first speech since the tape dropped while she was in New Hampshire.

Throughout her husband's life in politics, she fought to balance public and private needs, and to maintain her self-esteem. She agonized over what she feared was a cartoonish, racist image.
