After Confrontation With President, Arizona Governor Talks To Phoenix Stations
January 26, 2012 at 4:37 AM (PT)
One of ARIZONA Governor JAN BREWER's first stops after her tarmac confrontation with President OBAMA on WEDNESDAY afternoon was BONNEVILLE Talk KTAR-F/PHOENIX's "MAC AND GAYDOS" afternoon show, which scored an exclusive interview with BREWER while the controversy over her finger-wagging conversation with the President made national news.
"He was a little thin-skinned," BREWER told MAC WATSON and LARRY GAYDOS of the President, who the WHITE HOUSE said had taken umbrage with BREWER's description of a previous meeting in her book "Breakfast With Scorpions."
"I felt a little bit like I was being lectured to, and I was a little kid in a classroom, if you will, and he was this wise professor and I was this little kid, and this little kid knows what the problem is and I felt minimized to say the least," BREWER said. She also denied the WHITE HOUSE's statement that OBAMA told her he would be happy to meet with her again.

CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFYI-A/PHOENIX host MIKE BROOMHEAD also snagged BREWER for an interview WEDNESDAY afternoon, and BREWER related the story of her talk with the President, saying that she started by talking about "the ARIZONA comeback" but that "he was a little tense" and complained about his depiction in her book. "It was tense, to say the least," she told BROOMHEAD before discussing the state's problems with the border and the need for the federal government and the state to discuss the issue. She added that she was "very surprised... taken aback" by OBAMA's response.
