Michelle Obama drops miscarriage bombshell, fertility struggles in memoir

Michelle Obama shared with "Good Morning America" co-anchor Robin Roberts some key advice she'd give her pre-White House self, if she had the chance, as the two sat down to discuss her memoir, "Becoming". "I felt like I failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we don't talk about them", she said. "We are in our pain and somehow think that we are broken", she described her then-feelings and those of many other women.

In the first, Obama focuses on her impressions of Princeton, being a minority there, and college life. Michelle Obama also addressed the lawsuit scandal involving Ezekiel Wilekenmeyer Williams, who claimed Dunstrom Pharmaceuticals hired him to provide sperm donations for Barack and Michelle Obama some 20 years ago.

Though she previously stated that she simply let the comments slide off her back, Obama has now revealed how much they truly hurt. Her "sweet, attentive husband" was at the state legislature, "leaving me largely on my own to manipulate my reproductive system into peak efficiency".

She goes on to write about growing up in Chicago's Southside, dealing with racism, her family, and becoming the country's first black first lady. Mrs. Obama also revealed that they had their 2 children, Sasha and Malia, through in-vitro fertilization.

"For this", she writes, "I'd never forgive him". "What if that person went looking for our girls?" In the book, the former First Lady briefly mentions smoking marijuana when she was young. Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk. "She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always insisted you come up with controversial".

Dampening the hopes of Democrats that she'll run for President in 2020, Michelle writes that she just doesn't have the "passion for politics" that her husband had.

She branded the president a 'mysoginist, ' while calling his rival Hillary Clinton 'an exceptionally-qualified female candidate'.

Obama also noted that when she saw the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape she was disgusted and worked to "channeled my fury into words".

Obama recollects observing Trump use body language to "stalk" Clinton on stage during a debate, "trying to diminish her presence". She is scheduled to be onstage Tuesday night with Michelle Obama at Chicago's United Center, the first stop on Obama's promotional tour.
