Michelle Obama says she can 'never forgive' Donald Trump

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump greets outgoing first lady Michelle Obama as President Barack Obama looks on as they attends Trump's inauguration ceremonies on the Capitol in Washington U.S Michelle Obama breaks silence on day she learnt Trump would replace her husband

In a teaser for an interview on Sunday screened by ABC today, Mrs Obama blamed Trump for trying to 'stir up the wingnuts and kooks, ' with his comments about her husband's birth certificate. "Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk", she wrote.

The book, "Becoming", hits stores on Tuesday.

"The whole [birther] thing was insane and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed", Obama wrote in her memoir, according to a Washington Post review. "I was now starting to actually feel a bit angry, which then made me feel worse, as if I were fulfilling some prophecy laid out for me by the haters", she reportedly writes in her memoir. "But it was also unsafe, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks", Obama reportedly writes. "I'll give you a little controversy back, I'll never forgive (President Barack Obama) for what he did to our United States military. I don't blame Michelle Obama for being angry about the attacks she and her husband faced, and I don't blame Tucker for being fired up for the nastiness".

She also slammed him for bragging about sexually assaulting women, as a 2005 Access Hollywood tape, released before the 2016 election, suggests. It was depleted, and I had to fix it. She went on to express her surprise that the American people would elect a "misogynist" over "an exceptionally qualified female candidate".

Secretaries claimed Mr Obama was both brilliant and "cute" - although Michelle Obama was sceptical, writing that white people went "bonkers" any time you "put a suit" on a "half-intelligent black man".

'So I'll never forgive him for what he did to our military.

Horn 'humbled' by Thomas' TD celebration
Thomas said he watched the celebration before the game and had been thinking about duplicating it for a while. Horn said he texted Thomas and "thanked him for doing what most athletes in his position would never do".

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".

Others just trashed her memoir as a waste of trees.

At times, she feared she was damaging her husband's 2008 presidential campaign, especially after conservatives seized on a line from one of her speeches - taken out of context - that for the first time as an adult she was "really proud" of her country.

But the former first lady said what hurt her the most during that campaign were the relentless and blatantly false allegations that Barack was "a secret Muslim, born overseas".

She told the television station: "We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken".
