Excerpts from her new book show Michelle Obama’s disdain for President Trump on a variety of topics, but the one thing she’ll never forgive him for are attempts to spread birther conspiracies about her husband.
The former First Lady attacks Trump in her new memoir “Becoming,” by calling him all of the usual Democrat buzzwords – bigoted, xenophobic, racist.
She accuses the President of “stalking” Hillary Clinton during the second presidential debate and claims the Access Hollywood tape in which he engaged in locker room talk about women made her body “buzz(ed) with fury.”
Mrs. Obama reserved her most contempt for Trump’s birther conspiracies which would eventually force her husband to produce a birth certificate to prove he was born in Hawaii.
“The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed,” she said.
The conspiracy, Obama claimed, was thinly disguised racism that put her family’s safety at risk.
“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls?” she asked.
Odd, the very things she accuses Trump of are the same thing Democrats have charged Republicans with for years, and it was an actual “unstable mind” who brought a loaded gun to a baseball field in an attempt to assassinate GOP lawmakers.
“Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him,” she declared.
Hillary’s Campaign and the Birther Conspiracy
It was Hillary Clinton’s campaign that launched the movement questioning Barack Obama’s birthplace, contrary to the media’s attempts to rewrite history. It was Trump who gave voice to the claims by repeating them, but it was her colleagues in 2008 who researched how to use Obama’s birthplace against him at the time.
A strategy memo released by Hillary’s chief political strategist Mark Penn in March of 2007 contains the following statement: “I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values.”
Penn would later suggest that the Clinton camp target Senator Obama’s “lack of American roots.”
“Let’s explicitly own ‘American’ in our programs, the speeches and the values,” he wrote. “He doesn’t.”
Clinton’s campaign would also discuss efforts to portray Obama as a Muslim.
One has to wonder if she will ever be able to forgive Hillary for spreading such thinly-veiled racism.
She Forgave Hillary
Not only has Michelle Obama forgiven Hillary Clinton for her campaign’s attempts to stir up birther conspiracies, but she vociferously defended her efforts in the 2016 campaign.
She railed against women who dared to vote for a “misogynist” in Trump and were willing to overlook “an exceptionally qualified female candidate.”
This has been a theme for Michelle since Trump captured the White House – that Republican women are somehow lesser members of their own gender because they didn’t vote for the woman in the election.
“Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice,” she told a conference in Boston in September.
“It doesn’t say as much about Hillary, and everybody’s trying to worry about what it means for Hillary and no, no, no, what does this mean for us, as women?” she would claim.
Obama stated in her book that she tried to “block it all out” when she learned Trump would be replacing her husband. Which, actually, is something all of America was trying to do during that 8-year mistake voters made when they elected Barack.
Accuses Trump of ‘Stalking’ Hillary
In continuing to reveal that President Trump is living rent-free in Michelle’s head, she also accused him of ‘stalking’ Hillary during the second presidential debate in 2016.

According to a book written by New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, Hillary called Trump a ‘disgusting’ man during debate prep, a man who didn’t even belong on the same stage as her majesty.
Being on the same stage as the chosen Democrat equated to “trying to diminish her presence,” Obama wrote, adding he thought “I can hurt you and get away with it.”
You know who really thought they could hurt women and get away with it? Hillary’s husband. Now THAT is a truly ‘disgusting’ man.
Speaking of William Jefferson, where’s the section in Michelle’s book discussing Clinton’s ‘racist’ comments that Obama should have been fetching he and Ted Kennedy coffee instead of being President?
Or his ‘racist’ comments that Obama was treated better by the media because of his skin color?
Or maybe even an updated excerpt on how Hillary thinks all African-Americans look alike?
Guess you can only be a racist if you’re a Republican or an opponent of the Obama agenda in any way. It’s good to see Michelle Obama’s memoir finally out for the American people to read, but bookstores would be wise to place it in the ‘fiction’ section.
