President Biden seemed to be caught out on a hot mic on Monday when he referred to a Fox News correspondent as a “stupid son of a bitch,” following a question the journalist posed regarding inflation.
“Do you think inflation is a political liability going into the midterms?” Peter Doocy, Fox News White House correspondent shouted out as journalists were filing out of the room.
“No, it’s a great asset,” Biden uttered. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”

Afterwards, Biden called Doocy to “clear the air.” Biden reportedly told Doocy that his comments were “nothing personal” and even encouraged the reporter to continue asking about different topics than the rest of the press corps.
