Either way it took some nerve to walk up to the nation's leader and in effect, pick a fight.

Imagine Jan waking up Wednesday morning, combing her hair and slipping on her red blazer before stepping into the government vehicle that would whisk her to the airport in Mesa to "greet" the president. She would have needed some serious tunes to get her in the right mindset.

Here's our guess at what she might have been listening to before her brazen display of disrespect.
