Joe Biden slammed Fox News reporter Peter Doocy for questioning him about inflation on Monday, calling him a “stupid son of a bitch.”
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy regularly asks Joe Biden sharp questions and criticizes his policies. This time he forced Biden to get angry after the question about inflation.
After Doocy asked Biden at the White House if “inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms,” Biden responded with an insult.
“That’s a great asset. More inflation….what a stupid son of a bitch,” Biden said.
Inflation is now at a 40-year high, at nearly 7% officially.
Doocy laughed off Biden’s insult on Fox News’ “The Five” shortly after the encounter, saying, “Nobody has fact checked him yet and said it’s not true.”
Later Biden called Peter Doocy and said that there was nothing personal in his words. The journalist was sympathetic to this and replied that he would continue to ask tricky questions.
