Michelle Obama is in panic mode this week after a new book was released that exposes her darkest secrets, including the fact that she can’t stand Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.
In her new book First Women, the Grace and Power of America’s Modern First Ladies, Kate Andersen Brower wrote that though there are friendships among some former first ladies, there are also “relationships fraught with hurt feelings and resentment, like that between Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama.”
“The 2008 presidential campaign left deep and lasting scars on both the Clinton and the Obama camps, and they are still shockingly fresh,” Brower wrote, according to Daily Mail.
Michelle has reportedly never forgiven Hillary for mocking her husband’s message of “hope and change” during an Ohio campaign event seven years ago.
“The sky will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing, and everyone will know that we should do the right thing, and the world would be perfect,” Hillary said at the time.
Michelle made her feelings for Hillary known when she didn’t invite her to a single dinner during her time as Secretary of State, even though she was constantly at the White House meeting with Obama. Close friends with Jill Biden and Vice President Joe Biden, Michelle was hoping the latter would run against Hillary and beat her out for the Democratic presidential nomination.
“When Michelle Obama views the Clintons, I don’t want to say she’s looking down her nose at them – but she kind of is,” a former Obama adviser told Brower. “Recent charges of corruption and messy contributions to the Clinton’s Global Initiative, the family’s $2 billion foundation’ have fired up the enmity between both parties. It fits into the narrative about the Clintons that they come off as just trying to claw their way towards success and money.”
Michelle’s aides say she can’t wait to leave the White House, which she often calls a “really nice prison,” so that she can make millions herself through book deals and speaking fees.
