John King Grills Jan Brewer Over Tense Obama Exchange: ‘Were You Trying To Create A Scene?’

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer appeared on CNN Thursday and was grilled by John King over her contentious meeting with President Obama. “Were you trying to create a scene here?” King asked. “There are some people suggesting you wanted to have a scene with the president so you could sell more of your books.” “Absolutely not!” Brewer exclaimed “That’s absolutely ridiculous!”

“I never brought the book up,” Brewer continued. “He brought the book up! And he didn’t even talk to me about what the book was really about. It was about illegal immigration and securing our border, which I’ve wanted to talk to him about on numerous occasions and have had that opportunity. But he didn’t bring up securing the border, he’s just concerned about his amnesty. So it was not about the book, absolutely not, and I would have thought that in a 2 1/2 months since the book has been out that he would have called me or contacted me if he was disappointed in the book. So it was not anything that is of a publicity stunt. Just the truth and I stand on what I wrote in the book, by the way, John!”
