WATCH: Brewer Backs Off Of Bold Statement Re: Hillary Clinton Health Rumors, Wants Trump To Stick To Deporting All

Former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer ALMOST made a bold statement telling GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump - and, key surrogates such as Rudy Giuliani - to stop trafficking in internet conspiracy videos regarding Hillary Clinton's health. However, Brewer backed off of the statement when directly asked if Giuliani and others should cut it out.

Brewer also said that she hopes that Trump WILL retain his promise to deport the estimated 11 million people in the U.S. illegally when he takes to the stage in Phoenix tomorrow.

The former Governor has become a popular Trump surrogate, and was interviewed today by CNN's Jake Tapper on primary election day here in Arizona.

Tapper asked whether people should use the Pandora's Box of anonymous internet videos. Brewer agreed that it is "irritating, frustrating", before trying to quote Benjamin Franklin. It did not quite come out right: "Believe half of what you see, and only half of what you read, I guess.".*

But, when Tapper followed up and asked if she would tell Giuliani to cut it out, she backed off and recited a laundry list of Clinton's possible health issues.

Brewer also tried to avoid making any definitive pronouncements about Trump's illegal immigration speech tomorrow in Phoenix. She finished with a strong opinion that he should stick with him promise to get all of them out:

"He has said that they're going to go back and get in line, and come back across the legal way. And, that's what we want. We all believe in the rule of law."

*Not quite as savvy-sounding as Franklin's actual saying: Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.”
