Michelle Obama Slams Trump's Inauguration Crowd: 'My Husband's was More Diverse'
Obama remembered Trump’s inauguration as being different from Barack's inaugurations
Former First Lady Michelle Obama criticized the crowd size of Donald Trump's inauguration insisting her husband's ceremony was "more diverse."
Michelle was asked by the host, Michele Norris, how they exited the White House to make way from the Trump administration, The Boston Globe reports.
She remembered Trump’s inauguration as being different from Barack's inaugurations in 2009 and 2013.
"Sitting on that stage for that inauguration was so drastically different from our two because our inauguration was more diverse," Obama said.
"There were people of all ages and all backgrounds, and, you know, the crowd…"
Crown Publishing reported to the Associated Press on Wednesday that the former First Lady's new book 'Becoming' has sold more than 1.4 million copies in print and digital formats in the U.S. and Canada.
Michelle and former President Barack Obama have recently negotiated a $65million dollar deal with Crown Publishing Group/Penguin Random House for one memoir this year.
According to excerpts from the former first lady's upcoming book, she says she cannot forgive Trump for suggesting Barack Obama's birth certificate was a fake.
Trump fired back while speaking to reporters on Friday saying he hasn't read it the book.
"She got paid a lot of money to write a book," he said, before turning his attention to Barack Obama:
"I’ll never forgive him for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly … it was depleted."
In her Obama' memoir, reportedly derides the so-called "birther" conspiracy as thinly-veiled racism.“
The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed,” reads an excerpt.
“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 Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this, I’d never forgiven him.”
