Michelle Obama Rejects Angry Black Woman Label

Michelle Obama Rejects the "Angry Black Woman" Label

Michelle Obama sat down with Gayle King to discuss a new book, The Obamas. In it, New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor suggests that the first lady butted heads with the president's staff and attempted to exert influence over his policies. This morning on CBS, Michelle told Gayle that she has not been confrontational in the White House, and she offered an explanation for that false characterization: "That's been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced, that I'm some angry black woman." Watch Michelle Obama address the controversial book now.
