HeadlineNov 13, 2018

Former first lady Michelle Obama’s highly anticipated memoir is released today. In it, Michelle Obama recounts how Trump’s “birther” conspiracy against her husband and his “underlying bigotry and xenophobia” endangered her family. Michelle Obama also takes aim at Trump’s sexism in the book and talks about the challenges of being the first black first lady of the United States. The Obamas reportedly received $65 million for a joint book deal last year, of which Michelle Obama’s “Becoming” is the first release.
