Monday evening, Joe Biden delivered remarks on lowering prices for working families. At the conclusion of his empty, nonsensical comments, Biden then spoke to reporters on the latest Russia-Ukraine tensions: “I had a very, very, very good meeting, total unanimity, with all the European leaders. We’ll talk about it later.”
As they often to do with unhinged Biden, things got interesting when Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Joe Biden whether inflation is a “political liability” as Biden’s handlers ushered reporters out of the East Room of the White House.
Joe accidentally profanely responded into the microphone, saying, “No, it’s a great asset — more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”
Joe Biden and Peter Doocy have a history of exchanging barbs.
During the 2020 presidential campaign season, Joe Biden trolled Peter Doocy when the Fox News reporter had asked him if he had chosen a running mate yet.
In 2019, Biden also screamed at Doocy when he asked about Hunter’s pay-to-play scheme and demanded Doocy “ask the right questions!”
Late Monday night, the story got even more interesting when Doocy joined Hannity’s show, revealing that Biden actually called him on his cell phone after the exchange to “clear the air.”
New York Post reports:
President Biden reached out to Peter Doocy on Monday night and “cleared the air” after calling the Fox News White House correspondent a “stupid son of a bitch” an hour earlier.
Doocy told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the president called him on his cell phone and told the reporter, “it’s nothing personal, pal” after the hot mic blunder in the White House East Room.
Asked if Biden issued an apology, Doocy said he doesn’t need one and that the president simply “cleared the air.”
“I appreciated it. We had a nice call,” Doocy said of the communication.
“I don’t need anybody to apologize to me,” Doocy told Hannity. “He can call me whatever he wants as long as it gets him talking.”
