“I don’t wanna be president!” Michelle joked. “My path has never been politics. I just happened to marry somebody whose passion was politics. Just because he likes it doesn’t mean that I like it!”

She also went on to share that she wanted to give daughters Malia, 20, and Sasha, 17, a break from a high security presence.

Michelle‘s book Becoming is out now!
