Michelle Obama’s memoir sells more than 725,000 copies

Michelle Obama Reads Off Funny Things She Couldn’t Say as First Lady Watch “Clooney is my freebie!"More

Crown Publishing told The Associated Press on Friday that the figures include sales and pre-orders for the former first lady's memoir include hardcover, audio and e-books editions for the United States and Canada.

Kimmel asked Obama to share which celebrity she texted with most often, to which Obama initially demurred, noting that she doesn't "text and tell".

"When I got on the plane, I sobbed for 30 minutes", she said.

In comparison, an estimated 1.8 million people attended former President Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration, CNN reported.

"We were having dinner, and we know there was a celebration happening but we didn't realize that thousands of people were gathering in front of the White House at that time to celebrate. As in, 'What the hell is this country Becoming?'" he quipped.


Oprah, Gayle, and Michelle Obama? Now that she's no longer First Lady, however, she can say whatever the heck she wants, and unleashed all the things she's been keeping under wraps for all those years in a hilarious "JKL!" bit.

"I'm so angry at Barack", she wrote in her journal.

She had bought new white sneakers to wear on the trip, and within a day, after all the pushing they did, her shoes turned reddish brown, stained with the cinnamon-hued dust of Nairobi.

O: "I stole the phrase "when they go low, we go high" from the back of a Snapple Cap". "I think he's all of our freebies", she added, only further suggesting that line is, indeed, true. "I'm like 'Who are you?'" said Obama.

Another fave: "I'm not sure which one is Sasha and which one is Malia". They get so mad every time I mess their names up.
