Trump Disses Michelle Obama's Memoir Comments, Says He'll Never Forgive Barack

Michelle expressed rage, particularly Trump's baseless birther allegation that Barack was not born in the U.S. She says it was absolutely meant to stir up bigotry and xenophobia, "deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks".

"I'll never forgive him for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly, I'll never forgive him for many other ways". A fact check from the New York Times past year notes that "The military budget did shrink slightly during the Obama administration as the United States pulled out of combat operations, and because of the budget restrictions imposed by Congress known as sequestration".

So what did Trump say in response?

"We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken".

Michelle Obama will have more opportunity to speak out as her book tour, which begins in her hometown Chicago, rolls on to New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Boston and other cities.

"It was an expression of hatred that had generally been kept out of polite company, but still lived in the marrow of our supposedly enlightened society - alive and accepted enough that someone like Donald Trump could afford to be cavalier about it", she writes, according to the Post.

The day after his loss, Devlin released at least 10 juvenile defendants without examining their cases. Witnesses said that before releasing the defendants he asked them if they planned to kill anybody.

"I realized that as I was 34 and 35", said Obama, now the mother of 17-year-old Sasha and 20-year-old Malia.

"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.

The rallies were part of her work as co-chairman of the nonpartisan, nonprofit organization When We All Vote. "Period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again". She writes lovingly of her family and gives a detailed account of her courtship with her future husband, whom she met when both were at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin LLP; she was initially his adviser. She knew it would be hard, but she wasn't prepared for critics who attacked her for being unpatriotic and called her an "angry black woman".

She also slammed him for bragging about sexually assaulting women, as a 2005 Access Hollywood tape, released before the 2016 election, suggests.

Widely praised as a gifted orator and communicator, Obama has long said she has no interest in running for office, although she held a few campaign-style rallies before the midterms urging people to register to vote.
