An excerpt in the book read: “The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks.

Stressing that Trump's moves put her entire family in serious danger, Michelle said: “What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington?

"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.”

The book is said to be a biography which x-rays her feelings on the controversial US president and the 2016 presidential election. She stated that she reacted in shock the night she learned Trump would replace her husband in the Oval Office and tried to "block it all out,"

She criticizes Trump for the 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape, interpreting his comments to mean: “I can hurt you and get away with it.”
