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."
"You know the hard parts were the things that I expected," Michelle Obama told Roberts in the exclusive interview.
"That it was gonna be hard, you know? Being the first black anything is gonna be hard."
"So much of this country lives in isolation and we just don't know each other. ...
There were people who didn't know what a black woman was and sounded like. And, so I knew that was gonna be a challenge, that I'd have to earn my grace -- and I experienced that on the campaign trail," she said.
On the campaign trail, she was insulted and her patriotism was questioned.
"I write about those, you know, those nasty times where people, you know, called me Barack's 'baby mama,' you know? Accused me of not loving my country. ... Told me I was angry," she said. And, I was, like, 'This isn't me. Wait, wait, people. This isn't who I am.'"
President Trump responded Friday to Michelle Obama's comments about him in her book, pointing the finger at former President Barack Obama.
"She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always expect a little controversy," Trump told reporters. "I'll give you a little controversy back, I'll never forgive [President Barack Obama] for what he did to our U.S. military. It was depleted, and I had to fix it."

“For the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my country.”
Those two ruined the Etta James song, At Last, for me when they used it during the inauguration party. At the time, all I could think about was the destruction they would bring. My imagination didnt bring near as much into it as actually happened. I hope Trump has something up his sleeve to bring those two to account.
Odd title, did Bill Ayers Become Michelle Obama, now?
Being the first black anything is going to be hard
I have a friend from California......black, evangelical Republican. I asked her how tough it all was and her response was you have NO idea.
Etta James: I’m gonna whup Beyoncé’s ass
The soul legend has slammed Beyoncé Knowles for her rendition of At Last at Barack Obama’s inauguration ball
...”You guys know your president, right? You know the one with the big ears?” James asked from the stage of Seattle’s Paramount Theatre. “Wait a minute, he ain’t my president. He might be yours; he ain’t my president. But I tell you that woman he had singing for him, singing my song she’s going to get her ass whupped.”
Don’t use her own words against her!
Who ya gonna believe her or your lying eyes?
John F Kennedy had a vision. He wanted to put a man on the moon.
Hussein had a vision. He wanted to put a man in the girls bathroom.
We still have to hear about then objectifying themselves and others with their constant refrain of race as the qualifier for anything they discuss or do.
How in the KcuF did we get dragged back into the 1950’s of Rosa Parks....
So angry about this retarded crap, I couldn’t figure out how to that sentence
I thought it was going to be about Michael becoming Michelle.
HUFFINGTON POST - ENTERTAINMENT

Barack Obama was the guest of Beyonce and Jay-Z on Wednesday night. The foursome joined by about 100 other people at Jay-Zs 40/40 club in Manhattan had a wildly successful evening, raising $4 million for the presidents reelection campaign. ...
To J and B, thank you so much for your friendship, the president said.
Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent, he said.
The singer has taken an active role in promoting Obamas bid, posting an open letter to Michelle Obama on her blog and later reading it an a web video released by the campaign. ...
Yep, ask Justice Thomas about becoming the first conservative Black Supreme Court Judge in the post civil rights era.
Barack the Bozo was never even REMOTELY in a “brusing” campaign. He was whisked in on his skin color and his teleprompter skills. This clown wouldn’t know what it meant to have to FIGHT.

"The raised fist (also known as the clenched fist) is a salute and logo most often used by left-wing activists, such as: Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."
And then there was the Julia TV series in the late 1960s, “Sesame Street” and “The Electric Company” had black women actors on it in the 1970s, etc. Agreed, but Michelle is someone who knows she can tell reporters that it is the end of the month when in reality it is the beginning.
I'd say your Google-Fu needs work. I found it immediately with "67 genders meme." First image result.
