THIS fascinating documentary, following First Lady Michelle Obama on her
Becoming book tour, delivers interesting titbits from the opening minutes. Joining Oprah Winfrey on stage in her home town of Chicago, Mrs Obama takes the audience back to her final day and night in the White House before Donald Trump and his wife Melania were set to move in. While the rest of the world was still coming to terms with the presidential election result, Mrs Obama had plenty on her china plate – including a last-minute request from her daughters’ school friends to stay overnight for one last sleepover. Giving in to their final request, she recalls being like a drill sergeant, waking the kids up and pushing them out the door before her own family had to pack up and take one final flight in Marine One (the presidential chopper); where she revealed she “sobbed for 30 minutes”.
