JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) marked April Fool’s Day on Monday by posting a photo of a laughing President Obama accompanied by the text: “President Obama finally agrees to come tour AZ border!”

“In stunning news this morning, I learned that President Obama has finally agreed to tour Arizona’s Southern border!” she wrote on her Facebook page. “APRIL FOOLS! Click LIKE if you agree…..the President should visit Arizona’s border and to see for himself the dangers our citizens are facing each and every day with an unsecured border.”
