Michelle Obama’s Memoir- If Ipecac Became a Book

I will bold what I think will be instantly vomit inducing.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Former first lady Michelle Obama blasts President Donald Trump in her new book, writing how she reacted in shock the night she learned he would replace her husband in the Oval Office and tried to “block it all out.”

She also denounces Trump’s “birther” campaign questioning her husband’s citizenship, calling it bigoted and dangerous, “deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks.”

In her memoir “Becoming,” set to come out Tuesday, Obama writes openly about everything from growing up in Chicago to confronting racism in public life to her amazement at becoming the country’s first black first lady. She also reflects on early struggles in her marriage to Barack Obama as he began his political career and was often away. She writes that they met with a counselor “a handful of times,” and she came to realize that she was more “in charge” of her happiness than she had realized. “This was my pivot point,” Obama explains. “My moment of self-arrest.”

Obama writes that she assumed Trump was “grandstanding” when he announced his presidential run in 2015. She expresses disbelief over how so many women would choose a “misogynist” over Hillary Clinton, “an exceptionally qualified female candidate.” She remembers how her body “buzzed with fury” after seeing the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which Trump brags about sexually assaulting women.

She also accuses Trump of using body language to “stalk” Clinton during an election debate. She writes of Trump following Clinton around the stage, standing nearby and “trying to diminish her presence.”

Trump’s message, according to Obama, in words which appear in the book in darkened print: “I can hurt you and get away with it.”

In “Becoming,” Obama shares both pain and joy. She writes lovingly of her family and gives a detailed account of her courtship with her future husband, whom she met when both were at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin LLP; she was initially his adviser. Secretaries claimed he was both brilliant and “cute,” although Michelle Obama was skeptical, writing that white people went “bonkers” any time you “put a suit” on a “half-intelligent black man.” She also thought his picture had a “whiff of geekiness.”

But she was more than impressed after meeting him, by his “rich, even sexy baritone” and by his “strange, stirring combination” of serenity and power. “This strange mix-of-everything-man,” when she finally let him kiss her, set off a “toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonder.”

But throughout her husband’s life in politics, she fought to balance public and private needs, and to maintain her self-esteem. She agonized over what she feared was a cartoonish, racist image. She remembered being labeled “angry” and, by the Fox network, “Obama’s Baby Mama.” At times, she feared she was damaging her husband’s 2008 presidential campaign, especially after conservatives seized on a line from one of her speeches — taken out of context, she notes — that for the first time as an adult she was “really proud” of her country.

The remarks faded from the news, but she sensed lasting damage, a “pernicious seed,” a “perception” that she was “disgruntled and vaguely hostile.”

As the first black first lady, she knew she would be labeled “other” and would have to earn the aura of “grace” given freely to her white predecessors. She found confidence in repeating to herself a favorite chant: “Am I good enough? Yes I am.”


Isn’t that cultural appropriation? That’s Stuart Smalley’s affirmation, no?

  1. …well, now we know how transvestite men talk about the girly men they ream from the rear. Thanks for that. But why do you keep calling this “Michael” guy a “she”, when it CLEARLY is NOT?

  2. 100% racist “she” is. Anybody ever read her thesis? She is illiterate and ignorant and can’t spell, let alone form a coherent sentence. The way she breaks syllables at the end of a sentence was, for example: The trees were green and as we trave-
    rst down the walkw-
    One of the most ignorant and arrogant guys I’ve ever seen.
    And, she has a big dick.

  3. @really enraged
    Maybe, I have yet to find any weather underground fanfiction sites though. ;b
    I’d put my money on good ol’ Bill if anything, he wrote Obama’s after all!

  4. “…white people went bonkers any time you put a suit on a half-intelligent black man.”

    That reminds me of the old Q&A joke:

    Q: What do you call a Black guy in a three-piece suit?
    A: “Defendant”.

    (Yeah, yeah, I know – Raycissss! But if Richard Pryor could get away with it, so can I. After all, I might be 1/1024 African-American. You never know.)


  5. “Toppling blast of lust”

    Wow, I’ve never heard ‘anal’ described that way, other than “explosive diarrhea.”

    The title BECOMING has a missing objective word. I’ll take a wild guess and say FEMALE.

  6. The book gotz pix of Mooch
    pregnant right ??? Also the
    “real” reason she/he surrendered
    her law license…

  7. “I wanted the exterior of the White House painted lavender with lime green trim but the racists stopped me”.

  8. “Becoming”? Well she certainly isn’t. Did Bernardine Dohrn write it for her? Hope it has a lot of pictures as I’m not sure how many of her supporters can read.
    And what’s with the Cultural Appropriation of White Wemen’z hair?

    Loved her in the Fifth Element though. “What an ugly face. It doesn’t suite you. Take it off. That’s better. Never be ashamed of who you are.”


  9. Still banging on about how upset she is us white women didn’t do as we were told by our betters when voting for POTUS. And she had/ has life so rough ‘cuz she’s black.
    Hey Shelly “we all have to share our piece of the pie” O, how much will you be sharing with less fortunate people?

  10. Blacks have small, slow, and primitive brains. Blacks are the only race not hybridized with the large-brain Neanderthals.

    African Blacks average IQ 67. American Blacks (average 24% White admixture) average IQ 85. It was determined in IQ and the Wealth of Nations (Google: National IQs) that a minimum National IQ of 90 is required just to maintain a modern society.

    So, should we even be allowing Blacks to procreate with modern man?

    Blacks are the only race never to have civilized. They were removed from the jungle just 250 years ago.

    Name a civilization (or even a written language) ever created by Blacks.

    Name a single contribution from sub-Saharan Africans to the world. The simple fact is, everything Blacks have was given to them by Whites.

    Blacks can only achieve because they have White admixture or because they reside in White societies. Too few of them are smart enough to even build sufficient infrastructure in Africa to allow the Black intellectual elite to achieve

  11. Micheal fell madly in love with the little queer the first time he timidly reached over and touched his throbbing ex-linebacker manhood! “He was so gentle, diffident and shy about it just like the way he rides a bicycle and attracts flies” claims the Mooch!

  12. Joan Rivers was right, but being right and telling the truth can have serious consequences.
    I often wonder how long they can keep this sham going on America.

  13. This is so sad. That any woman should have so much reason to hate, since the day before she was dragged to the throne.

  14. “She remembers how her body “buzzed with fury” after seeing the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which Trump brags about sexually assaulting women.”
    Sexually assaulting women is something she’ll never have to be concerned about with Barack, men however may be another problem.
