Joe Biden Calls Fox Reporter A 'Stupid Son Of A B*tch'

President Joe Biden got annoyed with a Fox reporter's question and cursed at him under his breath.

Fox News' Peter Doocy asked Biden: "Do you think inflation is a political liability… in the midterms?" 

"No, it's a great asset," Biden responded. "More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch."

Later, Doocy explained that he did not hear Biden's rude response.

"I couldn't even hear him because people were shouting at us to get out, but then somebody came up to us in the briefing room a few minutes later and said, 'Did you hear what the president said?'" Doocy said on The Five. "I said, 'No, what?' They said, 'he called you a stupid SOB.' And I said, 'Did he say SOB?' And the person said, no."

According to Fox News, Biden called to "clear the air," where Biden reportedly told Doocy that his comments were "nothing personal" and told the Fox News reporter to continue asking about different topics.
