The book asserts that First Lady Michelle Obama has forcefully imposed her will on White House aides and tries to portray her as "some kind of angry Black woman." This is a familiar meme for Mrs. Obama that began during the 2008 presidential campaign.
I'm glad that Mrs. Obama had a chance to share her thoughts on the book during an interview earlier this week with CBS News.
In the interview, Mrs. Obama said, “I love this job. It has been a privilege from day one.”
“Now there are challenges,” she added. “If there’s any anxiety that I feel, it’s because I want to make sure that my girls (Malia and Sasha) come out of this on the other end whole.”
“There will always be people who don’t like me,” Mrs. Obama added, and said she could live with that.I encourage those villagers with love for our First Lady to check out the Michelle Obama Watch blog. What is your opinion of First Lady Michelle Obama?
Mrs. Obama said that she’s “just trying to be me, and I just hope that over time, that people get to know me.”
