Michelle Obama is revealing a lot with her brand new book.
The former First Lady of the United States is set to release her highly anticipated memoir Becoming on Nov. 13, and she has already kicked off her promotional tour, revealing previously private stories from her life.
In an appearance on “Good Morning America” on Friday, Obama revealed that she suffered a miscarriage more than 20 years ago, before the birth of her daughters Malia and Sasha.
“I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them,” she said. ″We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.”
The next step was to go through in vitro fertilization in order to conceive, she said. “I realized that as I was 34 and 35. We had to do IVF.”
In Becoming, Obama also takes aim at Donald Trump, USA Today reports, including slamming the president for the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape in which he bragged about sexually assaulting women, and his performance during one of the 2016 presidential debates in which he appeared to “stalk” Hillary Clinton around the stage.
According to Business Insider, Obama also reveals her anger at Trump for leading the birther movement, falsely claiming her husband Barack was not born in America.
“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington,” Obama writes. “What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”
