ASSOCIATED PRESS

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) said on Wednesday that her comment calling Hillary Clinton a “lying killer” was just a “mispronunciation” of the Democratic nominee’s name.

“I was trying to say Hillary Clinton,” Brewer told Buzzfeed News. “It was a stumble of the tongue.”

“Good grief,” she added.

On Tuesday, Brewer called Clinton a “lying killer” during a radio interview on Phoenix radio station KTAR.

“People want a fighter. They’re tired of the lying killer, uh Hillary Clinton and Bill Clintons of the world,” she said while arguing that Democrats cannot win Arizona, according to a clip highlighted by Mediaite.
