“He was a little disturbed about my book, Scorpions for Breakfast,” Brewer told reporters travelling with Obama. “I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president. The book is what the book is. I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt. “
Obama did the same thing to Bobby Jindal.
