Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and President Barack Obama engaged in an apparently tense exchange on an airport tarmac shortly after Air Force One touched down outside Phoenix on Wednesday.
Obama appeared to walk away from the Republican governor while they were still talking, according to a White House pool reporter. Brewer confirmed that by saying she didn’t finish her sentence.
Asked moments later what the conversation was about, Brewer said: “He was a little disturbed about my book.”
… Brewer recently published a book, Scorpions for Breakfast, something of a memoir of her years growing up. The book also defends her signing of Arizona’s controversial law cracking down on illegal immigrants, which Obama opposes.
