Arizona Governor Jan Brewer got into a little argument with President Obama after he arrived at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport yesterday. Here’s what supposedly went down.

Asked moments later what the conversation was about she said:

He was a little disturbed about my book.

Brewer recently published a book, “Scorpions for Breakfast,” something of a memoir where she defends her signing of Arizona’s controversial law cracking down on illegal immigrants, which Obama opposes.

In the book, she talks about how the President “lectured” her about immigration when they met in 2010. She says, “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.”

When asked to comment about the picture of her pointing in the President’s face she said:

I will say that a picture is what it is. I must say, I was not hostile. I was trying to be very, very gracious. I respect the office of the president, and I would never be disrespectful in that manner.
