Wrinkled AZ-Gov. Jan Brewer Puts Her Finger in Pres. Obama’s Face
Matt | On 27, Jan 2012
I have been traveling this week and have been out of pocket. However, I had to find out what all the fuss was about Arizona’s Gov. Jan Brewer (R) while I was gone.
Then I saw the picture of her wagging her finger in President Obama’s face on the tarmac as he arrived in Arizona.
From there, I instantly got pissed off.
Who in the hell does Gov. Brewer think she is? This is the President of the United States, not her homegirl that she is beefing with from her crochet club. Gov. Brewer says that she was angry about comments the president made about her book, “Scorpions For Breakfast.”
In the book, Brewer says that the president lectured her about her state’s shitty immigration law that the U.S. Department of Justice has put the brakes on for now. She called him “thin-skinned” because he didn’t take to her written characterization too well.
All that is well and good, but one should never put their finger in someone’s face in a professional setting. EVER! To me, that gesture is reserved for an elder talking to their young child — not a 50-year-old man that’s the leader of the free world.
I don’t give a shit what she thought about his critique of her little book. As a grown man, he deserves respect. I would never think to put my finger in Newt Gingrich or John Boehner’s faces even though I don’t agree with a lot of what they say. I still respect them as people and the office they hold.
Her Royal Saggy-ness needs to be worried about how to quit racially profiling the brown people in her state and get more Arizonans working. She could also stand to READ an etiquette book or two in her spare time. Clearly, she conducts herself like she has no home training!
