Michelle Obama Reveals IVF, Marriage Counseling

In her upcoming memoir, Michelle Obama writes that she will "never forgive" President Trump for pushing the so-called birther conspiracy that she believes put her family's safety at risk.

She goes on. "What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington?". Michelle Obama wrote. "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 said.

Trump dismissed her remarks as a "controversy" ginned up to sell books, commenting to reporters as he left the White House for his trip to Paris.

However, along with her confessions regarding the details of her marriage to the former president, she was critical of Donald Trump, who replaced Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

The book, a raw and revealing account of her life, goes where few first ladies' autobiographies have gone.

"I can't blame her". "We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken".

"I don't blame Michelle Obama for being angry about the attacks she and her husband faced, and I don't blame Tucker for being fired up for the nastiness".

CDC: Ebola outbreak may be beyond control
It will be the first time the vaccine is used in a country not in the midst of an active Ebola outbreak. Ebola first appeared in 1976 in Sudan and Congo, and gets its name from a river in the latter nation.

"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.

Fertility treatments allowed her to conceive daughters Malia, now 20, and Sasha, 17.

"I don't think anybody will be necessarily prepared to read a memoir like this - especially coming from a first lady", Rhimes told the Post, having read an advance copy of "Becoming".

But she admits the couple on occasion turned to counseling, where they "learned how to talk out" problems.

"But it was also unsafe, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks", she adds.

Michelle also thought back to the first time she saw the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which Trump is heard bragging about sexually assaulting women. "I love the honesty and the humor and the beauty with which she addressed the romance of her marriage and the tribulations of her marriage and motherhood, and all of those things that we as women all can relate to".

And while Trump suggested Obama left him with "old and tired" military equipment, Harvard University professor Matthew Bunn noted that it was Obama who, in 2015 "laid out a $1 trillion plan to modernize every aspect of the US nuclear arsenal over the next 30 years".
