In new book, Michelle Obama reveals miscarriage, used IVF to conceive daughters

"I felt like I failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we don't talk about them", the former first lady said in an interview broadcast on ABC's Good Morning America.

She also said she was in shock when Trump won his presidency and tried to block it out.

Obama also noted that when she saw the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape she was disgusted and worked to "channeled my fury into words". She was assigned for three months as Obama's adviser at the firm and joined him at several group social functions.

Before eviscerating Trump, though, Obama discusses her childhood, from growing up in a "cramped apartment on the South Side of Chicago" to how she struggled with her perception as an "angry" black woman.

During the intimate conversation, she also revealed that she conceived her daughters, Malia and Sasha, through IVF.

"Marriage counseling for us was one of those ways where we learned how to talk out our differences", Michelle Obama informed Roberts.

'What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington?

Mrs Obama also accuses Mr Trump of using body language to "stalk" Mrs Clinton during a presidential election debate. Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk.

The pain a mother feels for her lost child can never equal to any pain an ordinary person would feel.

Trump responded in expected fashion saying he'd never forgive Barack "for what he did to our U.S. military" as President. Obama is launching a book tour to at the United Center on Tuesday to promote her memoir "Becoming", a tour featuring arenas and other performing centers to accommodate crowds likely far too big for any bookstore.
