New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor is making waves with her book The Obamas, which is being described as a tell-all of the administration and First Family that chronicles the tensions within both. Naturally, everyone is clamoring to read it.
Except The First Lady.
In an interview with CBS News, conducted by Gayle King, Mrs. Obama cleared up some of the allegations from Kantor’s book — including clarifying the status of her relationship with former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel as close, although the book painted it as strained.
She readily admitted that she hasn’t read Kantor’s book, adding: “…who can write about how I feel? Who? What third person can tell me how I feel, or anybody for that matter?”
