Michelle Obama has branded Donald Trump a ‘misogynist’ whose infamous ‘grab ’em by the pussy’ comment made her ‘body buzz with fury.’

The former First Lady issued a scathing attack on the president and a leaked recording of a remark he made in 2005 during an interview with ABC to promote her new autobiography, Belonging.

She hit out at Trump for his false claims that her husband Barack was a foreign-born Muslim – and said she could never forgiven the president for the danger his remarks had put her family in.

Mrs Obama called that so-called ‘birther’ movement: ‘ crazy and mean-spirited,’ adding: ‘Its underlying bigotry and xenophobia (were) hardly concealed.’

She continued: ‘But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks.

‘What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this, I’d never forgive him.’

The lawyer-turned campaigner accused Trump of trying to ‘stalk’ rival Hillary Clinton around a podium during a debate ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

She called the tactic an attempt to ‘diminish her presence with his,’ and to send the message that ‘I can hurt you and get away with it.’

Mrs Obama called fellow-Democrat Clinton ‘an exceptionally qualified female candidate.’

She also opened up about the pain of having a miscarriage, her successful attempts at IVF, and how she and Mr Obama underwent marriage counseling to help their relationship through a rough patch.

And the popular former First Lady has ruled out calls for her to run as president, saying that seeing the ‘ugliness’ that accompanied her husband’s campaign has put her off politics for life.

Michelle Obama’s full interview airs on ABC at 9pm EST Sunday.
