On The Laura Ingraham Show Tuesday, Wisconsin State Rep. Michelle Litjens gave her first national interview regarding reports that her Democratic colleague, Rep. Gordon Hintz, told her she was "f---ing dead" on the floor of the state assembly after her vote in favor of Governor Walker's budget plan. After discussing the incident, she also took a swipe at President Obama.

@0:57 - "Did I feel like he was threatening my life? Not necessarily, but was I intimidated? You bet I was and after that happened I just wanted out of that chamber. Our chamber deserves more respect than that....The Democrats are screaming that we need to be civil towards each other, yet the Democrats, at least in our chamber, haven't shown that example at all. They've been throwing fits on a regular basis looking like a group of toddlers throwing a temper tantrum."

On Hintz's apology to her:

@3:46 - "He apologized on Monday; it certainly would have been nice if he would have called me on Friday or even maybe Saturday. He called me Monday after this had already made it into the news."

@4:08 - "It's so disappointing. Our body should be a respected body. You should walk into those chambers and feel like you're safe and you shouldn't feel like you are threatened at all."

In response to President Obama's comment that public employees should not be vilified:

@3:05 - "You know what's fascinating about that comment is that out federal employees are not allowed to bargain on wages, benefits, or their pensions, and yet he has the audacity to reference what we're doing here in Wisconsin, where we are just trying to do the same thing that has happened to our federal employees here in Wisconsin and it's unbelievable. We have a budget crisis going on in our state and we need every tool at our disposal to give to our local government so they can balance our budgets. He has no idea what is going on in our state right now."

On the smell in the Wisconsin State House:

@5:43 - "Oh my gosh it's a joke, we talk about carrying around bottles of Febreze. It's disgusting and for such a beautiful building to be abused so much is really a sad thing."
