Michelle Obama rips Trump in new book

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

WASH­ING­TON >> For­mer first lady Michelle Obama blasts Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump in her new book, re­call­ing how she re­acted in shock the night she learned he would re­place her hus­band in the Oval Of­fice and tried to “block it all out.”

In her mem­oir “Be­com­ing,” set to come out Tues­day, Michelle Obama denounces the pres­i­dent for brag­ging in 2005 about sex­u­ally as­sault­ing women. She says his com­ments on the in­fa­mous “Ac­cess Hol­ly­wood” tape meant, “I can hurt you and get away with it.”

She also ac­cuses Trump of us­ing body lan­guage to “stalk” his 2016 op­po­nent, Hil­lary Clin­ton, dur­ing an elec­tion de­bate. She says Trump fol­lowed Clin­ton around the stage, stood too close and tried to di­min­ish her pres­ence.

The As­so­ci­ated Press pur­chased an early copy “Be­com­ing.”
