'Lies Sell Books': Twitter Uproar Over Michelle Obama Trashing Trump in Memoir

Former First Lady Michelle Obama had some harsh words for President Donald Trump in her soon-to-be-released memoir. It's expected to sell millions of copies.

"Marriage counselling for us was one of those ways where we learned how to talk out our differences", the mom of two said.

Obama also fended off a question as to how she thought Melania Trump was doing, telling the network: "You know, one of the things you learn as a former, it's, like, I don't judge, what a current is doing, you know?"

She adds that the arena is not for her, and she is put off by the "nastiness", "tribal segregation or red and blue", and an inability at times to be civil.

The memoir covers Obama's childhood and education, early struggles in her marriage to Barack Obama, and her tenure as the First Lady. Get there, what's your major?

"We took what was perhaps unfair comfort in the knowledge that Malia's security detail would basically ride the boy's bumper all the way to the restaurant where they were going for dinner before the dance and would remain on quiet duty throughout the night". The had the seemingly ideal life track... a great job, a great wardrobe, and a clear path to great things in a top-notch Chicago law firm but choose to pivot and enter public service.

When "swerver" Barack came along at a point when Michelle had built her existence "carefully", he was "like a wind that threatened to unsettle everything", she writes in the book. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, encouraged healthier eating habits for Americans, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.

Eventually, though, other factors also contributed to Michelle agreeing to Barack's presidential run: She knew her husband was surrounded by a team of "good, smart people".

Living in the White House for eight years, @MichelleObama had staffers providing everything she could have possibly needed, except for time. On 20 January, they welcomed Trump and his wife, Melania, to the White House, then proceeded to the 45th president's inaugural stage in front of the US Capitol. That was the first time I'd really experienced someone taking my voice and balling it up and distorting it. She writes that she felt she had "failed" after a pregnancy ended in a miscarriage.

"I sometimes wonder where bottom might be".

And 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. "This isn't who I am".

"For me, my choices were simply a way to use my curious relationship with the public gaze to boost a diverse set of up-and-comers".

"I think it's the worst thing that we do to each other as women - not share the truth about our bodies and how they work and how they don't work", she said. "So I mixed it up".

"Her embarrassment [had] already [begun] to smolder as we rode the elevator downstairs", Obama wrote, according to People. "That's also one of the reasons why it's so important that we are fearless about telling our stories: The only way they will know is if we educate them".
