What's the meaning of "She got into my face" and "tiptoed dangerously close to" in this context? Context: Sturtz’s description of Mrs. Obama’s reaction – that she was “pretty aggressive,” that she “got into my face” – was breathtaking bit of projection and entitlement that also tiptoed dangerously close to the “angry black woman” stereotype that Mrs. Obama has been dogged by for years.

"She got in my face." She got angry and yelled at me/confronted me. "tiptoed dangerously close to" was close but didn't quite reach or meet the description of the stereotype. The behavior was just short of, or less than. the stereotype.
