“I’ll give you a little controversy back, I’ll never forgive President Barack Obama for what he did to our US military. It was depleted, and I had to fix it. What he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you and you and you.”

A feud has now erupted between President Trump and former First Lady Michelle Obama, and it’s all very Trumpian. According to The Hill, the former First Lady excoriates the current President in her upcoming memoir, titled “Becoming,” in which she announces she will “never forgive” President Trump for spreading the birther conspiracy in the years leading up to his 2016 candidacy.
While the birther conspiracy was indeed ridiculous, it did not begin with President Trump. Though the conspiracy’s origins are hard to trace, it is undeniable that Hillary Clinton helped push it during the 2008 primary when her campaign aide Sidney Blumenthal sent a respected journalist from McClatchy over to Kenya to investigate the charge. Former McClatchy Washington Bureau chief James Asher admitted to this recently.
Michelle Obama has said nothing about her desire to forgive or not forgive Hillary Clinton over the whole birther affair. In fact, the First Lady endorsed Hillary in 2016.
President Trump has elected not to let Michelle Obama’s criticism of him slide and decided to hit back, alleging she wrote that passage to generate controversy for more book sales.
“She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always expect a little controversy,” President Trump told reporters Friday morning.
The president then said he will “never forgive” President Obama for destroying the U.S. military and leaving him a mess to clean up.
“I’ll give you a little controversy back, I’ll never forgive Barack Obama for what he did to our United States military. By not funding it properly, it was depleted,” he said. “What he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you and you and you.”
