If you're concerned about paying for groceries because of inflation the President thinks you're a stupid son of a b****.
Those were his exact words.
President Biden appeared to be caught on a hot mic on Monday, calling a Fox News correspondent a "stupid son of a bitch" after the journalist asked a question about inflation. It's unclear whether the president knew his mic was still on, but the moment was also caught on camera.
"Do you think inflation is a political liability going into the midterms?" Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy could be heard shouting as journalists filed out of the room.
"No, it's a great asset," Mr. Biden muttered sarcastically. "More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch."
Apparently the President called Doocy after the incident and (sort of) apologized.
Fox News Peter Doocy revealed that President Biden called his cellphone following a hostile exchange the two of them had at the White House earlier in the day.
During an event on Monday evening, Doocy attempted to ask Biden a question about inflation, to which the president responded by calling him a "stupid son of a b----."
Appearing on "Hannity," Doocy said the president reached out to him "within about an hour of that exchange."
"He said ‘It’s nothing personal, pal,'" Doocy said. "And we went back and forth, and we were talking about just kind of moving forward, and I made sure to tell him that I'm always gonna try to ask something different than what everybody else is asking. And he said, ‘You got to.’ And that's a quote from the president, so I'll keep doing it."
