Former first lady Michelle Obama said she will “never forgive” President Donald Trump for spreading the so-called birther conspiracy theory with “reckless innuendos” that she said threatened her family’s safety.
Michelle Obama wrote the scathing critique of Trump — among the harshest words she’s ever had for the president — in her forthcoming memoir, “Becoming,” according to a Friday report from The Washington Post, which received an advance copy. The book will be released Tuesday.
“The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly . But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks,” Obama writes in the book, according to the Post. “What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”
When Trump was asked about Obama’s book, he deflected and instead criticized his President Obama.
“I’ll never forgive him for what he did to our United States military. I’ll never forgive him for many other things,” Trump told reporters outside the White House on Friday morning.
Excerpts from Michelle Obama‘s book “Becoming” have started arriving, and she holds nothing back in it.
The former first lady revealed in the book that she and her husband Barack Obama had their daughters Sasha and Malia through IVF.
She and Barack had trouble conceiving and even had a miscarriage, she shared, so an IVF was decided upon.
The Washington Post reports that Barack was absent a lot during the process, and Michelle had to do a lot of it on her own, including self-administering the injections.
Malia was born in 1998, and Sasha in 2001.
