Jan Brewer And Barack Obama Nearly Come To Blows Over Book Excerpt
America's relationship with the breakaway republic of Arizona remains a contentious one, with especially pungent ill-will bubbling between President Obama and Arizona's current monarch Jan Brewer. First,Brewer blamed Obama for blowing up her beeper, two-way, AND cellie, and thereby delaying the completion of her book "Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America's Border." Brewer eventually released the erotic thriller late last year to well-deserved indifference. Now Obama is getting into it with Brewer in front of God and everybody, because she used her stupid book to kiss and tell about a top-secret Oval Office meeting the two once had. JESUS! Will they or won't they, already!!
The Hill relays Brewer's version of events:
“He was a little disturbed about my book,” Brewer said. “I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president."
But Obama “didn’t feel that I had treated him cordially” in the book, the governor said.
In the book, Brewer complains about one meeting at the White House with Obama -- centered around immigration and border security -- writing, “It was though President Obama thought he could lecture me, and I would learn at his knee.”
What Brewer at the time called a "cordial" encounter later in her book became a tense meeting with a "patronizing" president. Um, this may be terrible to say.... but could one ever be anything but patronizing to someone who excretes a pile of dung called "Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America's Border?" Really. What can a human say to the silly puppet behind such a thing?
Well, whatever it was Obama managed to sputter in response, it went over like the opposite of gangbusters:
At one point in the tense conversation on Wednesday, Brewer pointed her finger at Obama and at another time, they were talking over one another, according to a White House pool report.
Obama appeared to walk away from Brewer in the middle of their conversation, according to the pool report.
News of the latest beef between the two has predictably sparked a heated partisan rap battle (which you should join!) on the book's Amazon page. Oh, also four libraries spontaneously combusted upon hearing that Brewer is officially a published author. [The Hill]
