Former First Lady Michelle Obama compared President Donald Trump to a "divorced dad" in a new interview.

Obama sat down with "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert in London as part of her book tour to promote her memoir "Becoming."

"We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled," Obama told the crowd, according to The Independent. "Sometimes you spend the weekend with a divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad."

Obama added that the United States is enduring a "dark chapter" under the current administration.

"This may feel like a dark chapter but any story has its highs and lows but it continues," she said. "Yes, we are in a low but we have been lower. We have had tougher times, we have had more to fear. We have lived through slavery, the Holocaust and segregation.

"We have always come out at the other end — better and stronger. We are moving in a direction of diversity and inclusion. No one ever said it would be easy. We are just in the throes of the uneasy path of change."

It was announced in March that Obama's book had sold nearly 10 million copies.

"We believe this could be the most successful memoir in history," Penguin Random House's Thomas Rabe said.
