McCain: Brewer fight shows Obama’s ‘prickly personality’

Obama got into an argument on the tarmac with Brewer after Air Force One landed in Arizona on Wednesday. The argument centered around Brewer’s characterization of an earlier White House meeting with Obama in her book “Scorpions for Breakfast.” She wrote that the president “lectured” her at that meeting.

The White House noted that Brewer had described the discussion as “cordial” when she spoke to reporters immediately after the meeting.

“The president said he’d be glad to meet with her again, but did note that after their last meeting, a cordial discussion in the Oval Office, the governor inaccurately described the meeting in her book,” the White House said in a statement. “The president looks forward to continuing taking steps to help Arizona’s economy grow.”
