In her upcoming memoir, “Becoming,” former first lady Michelle Obama shares how she was furious over President Donald Trump’s presidential victory and bashes women for voting for a “misogynist.”

Obama claims in her new book that she thought the president was “grandstanding” when he said he was going to run for president — adding that she tried to “block it all out” when he won, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

When Trump defeated former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Obama claimed that she was shocked so many women voted for a “misogynist” over “exceptionally qualified” Clinton.

At an election debate between Trump and Clinton, Obama seemed to think that Trump used body language to “stalk” Clinton and “diminish her presence.”

Despite Obama’s claim that Clinton is “exceptionally qualified,” the former Democrat candidate has faced her share of scandals, including when she was investigated for using a private email account while secretary of state.

She was investigated — submitting 55,000 pages of emails — on the way she handled classified information with the private email server, which was called a violation of federal requirements and a serious breach, The New York Times reported.

During the 2016 presidential election, Clinton received 54 percent of women voters nationally, while Trump received 41 percent of the women voters’ support, according to The Washington Post.

The former first lady previously shared at The United State of Women Summit that  she was “concerned” for women who voted for Trump and criticized “how we think.”

“In light of this last election, I’m concerned about us as women and how we think,” Obama said.

“What is going on in our heads where we let that happen, you know?”

She then called Clinton “the most qualified woman” and claimed that women voting for Trump, “says something about where we are.”

Obama’s book, which includes other sections that set out to try to tear apart Trump, is set to release on Tuesday.

Who really gives a shit what Michelle Obama thinks?

Robert Wayne

Man! If W. Had gone after the Obamas in the same fashion he would have had to leave the country. What a breach of ethical behavior for a formerPOTUS and FLOTUS to attack their successor.


But Michelle, Hillary is a white woman, so it can’t be Racism™.

Sure, go ahead and blame those horrible, icky, nonsensical white women. Others in your party have. Too bad bobbleheads like Phyllis can’t grasp that they are being scapegoated and continue to support the Dims. Maybe it’s “white guilt” that keeps them voting Dim.

Sorry, no “white guilt.” Remember, I am on the maternal side, an ancestor of Benjamin Rush-the signer of the DOI that returned to PA when he could not convince Washington and Jefferson to end slavery. My paternal grandma was a proud bigot and anti-immigrationist. But her beef was with Polish, Italians, & Lebanese invading her country. Sorry Catholics, she believed you should stay away. But she had no problem with Blacks.The business had both Black employees and customers.

I’m touched by your concern, but I really want you to focus on your gullibility. Take the latest cons caravan invasion & doctored Acosta video. How many mentions of the caravan invasion have you seen since Nov 6th? If the invasion was real, would Trump be trotting off to Paris? There is the PP selling baby parts even after every red state investigation came up empty.You had Obama coming for your gun,Benghazi,email,U One, ACA, 5m illegal voters, Seth Rich, & too many others Wise up.
