Jodi Kantor, correspondent for The New York Times, has written a new book called "The Obamas," which gives an inside look into the first family. Specifically, she reports on Michelle Obama's role as First Lady and her interactions with the President and with his senior advisers. Though Mrs. Obama has not yet read the book, in a CBS This Morning interview she responded that people have tried to portray her as an "angry black woman" since the day her husband announced his bid for the presidency.
Jodi Kantor joins the program to discuss the process of writing the book and address the controversy around it. Cynthia Gordy, Washington reporter of the The Root, speaks to The Takeaway about the controversial book and stereotypes that Michelle Obama is referring to.
