“Someone from Barack’s administration might have said that the optics there were bad, that what the public saw didn’t reflect the President’s reality or ideals, but in this case, maybe it did,” Obama said in audio of the book. “Realizing it, I made my own optic adjustment. I stopped even trying to smile.”

“I will always wonder about what led so many women, in particular, to reject an exceptionally qualified female candidate and instead choose a misogynist as their president,” the former first lady wrote.

“You write about fooling around with your boyfriend,” Roberts teased, prompting Obama to ask, “Which one?”

The journalist also wanted to know why she included an admission that she’d tried smoking pot, albeit without going into detail.

“That’s what I did. That’s a part of the ‘Becoming’ story,” she said matter-of-factly. “Everyone has something they’re working through, something that they were figuring out. Why would I hide that from the next generation?”

She was ‘afraid to hope’ her husband could be president

When her husband appeared on the cover of Time with the headline, “Can Barack Obama be the next president,” his wife had a hard time even looking at it.

“I was doing what a lot of black folks do. We were afraid to hope,” she said. “It’s hard to believe that the country that oppressed you could one day be led by you.”

“The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed,” Obama writes. “But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks.”

“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald , with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him,” she continues.

Michelle Obama had a miscarriage before using fertility treatments to conceive her daughters, Malia and Sasha, she revealed in a new memoir.

In her book, Obama explained that she and her husband, former president Barack Obama, dealt with infertility and used in vitro fertilization to conceive their children.

“The biological clock is real, because egg production is limited. And I realized that as I was 34 and 35. We had to do IVF,” she said.
