Brewer Says Calling Clinton A ‘Lying Killer’ Was A ‘Stumble Of The Tongue’

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
