Michelle Obama covers ELLE Magazine’s December issue in style

Michelle Obama began her 12-stop book tour Tuesday by sitting with Oprah Winfrey before a sold-out audience at the home arena of the Chicago Bulls...

And when Roberts asked about the current president and how he compares to the "no drama Obama" administration, the former first lady replied by saying that the commander in chief needs to have discipline, and read, and be knowledgable.

Michelle Obama told ABC News that when she entered the White House she was offered help from her predecessor Laura Bush, a courtesy she also extended to the incoming first lady.

The memoir covers Obama's childhood and education, early struggles in her marriage to Barack Obama, and her tenure as the First Lady.

Kimmel is likely ask her response to Trump's rebuttal. Crying on the plane on Inauguration Day 2017, she explained, had nothing to do with Trump.

Obama also spoke to the students about confidence in response to a question about how she had proven herself as "more than just the president's wife".

"A fear and anger that's rooted in our past, but it's also born out of the enormous upheavals that have taken place in your brief lifetimes", Barack Obama said at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign. "That was so hard".

But as former United States first lady Michelle Obama prepared to release her new memoir, Becoming, she got real with ABC reporter Robin Roberts.

"I've never been a fan of politics, and my experience over the last ten years has done little to change that".

Trump said Obama "got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always insisted you come up with (something) controversial".

"So I'll never forgive him for what he did to our military".

She told ABC that she felt she had "failed" at the time because she didn't know how common miscarriages were. "But you all being here tonight is a testament to the light".

In the first, Obama focuses on her impressions of Princeton, being a minority there, and college life.

Though Obama never explicitly mentions this in the memoir, she discusses the complexities of code-switching: a term used to describe the ways people of color and those from other marginalized groups often adjust their language, behavior, and even appearance to navigate certain social situations or audiences, as Vox's P.R. Lockhart writes.

"Hillary was the safer bet for them because she was known".

During an interview with People magazine, she said that they had sought marriage counselling.

Obama stayed to watch the girls perform the dance routine they had been rehearsing prior to the surprise visit. "Each and every one of you as women have to, and it doesn't happen overnight", she said. "I wasn't gonna allow myself to feel victimized from it because there was no time to hurt in that role".

Speaking with Oprah Winfrey in an OWN special set to air November 15, the former first lady revealed that she and Barack went to marriage counseling after their two daughters, Malia and Sasha, were born.
