Former vice president Joe Biden was caught on a hot mic calling Fox News Reporter Peter Doocy a ‘stupid son of a b*tch’.
Former vice president Joe Biden was caught on a hot mic Monday calling Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy a ‘stupid son of a bitch’ after being questioned about the out-of-control inflation that is plaguing our country.
“Do you think inflation is a political liability?” Doocy asked Biden as the press was ushered out of an event in the White House East Room.
“No, it’s a great asset — more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch,” Biden sneered into a hot mic.
Of course, the White House cut the nasty insult from their feed but it was heard quite clearly on video streamed by C-SPAN.
This isn’t the first time former vice president Biden has lashed out at reporters about their questions. He does not like being questioned or asked anything remotely close to making him think.
On Thursday, Biden attacked a different Fox News reporter, Jacqui Heinrich, after she shouted, “Why are you waiting on [Russian President Vladimir] Putin to make the first move, sir?”
“What a stupid question,” Biden said.
Is this one of the reasons why Biden doesn’t hold press conferences? He can’t deal with the difficult questions and lashes out?
Biden did call Doocy to “clear the air” after the dust settled on his incredibly inappropriate comment. Biden reportedly told Doocy that his comments were “nothing personal” and encouraged the Fox News reporter to continue asking about different topics than the rest of the press corps.
Most of the MSM has been relatively quiet about the unpresidential gaffe. Senior CNN host Brian Stelter retweeted Jen Chaney mocking the fact that Fox has been talking about this.
But….he did the same thing with President Trump. In 2018 he took to Twitter to lambaste the former president.
It didn’t take long for people to start calling Stelter out for his utter hypocrisy. Are we surprised by it though?
He quickly came out to “explain” himself. Kind of.
The installed administration is quickly falling apart and is losing support daily. From the failure of the Afghanistan withdrawal that saw 13 of our military members killed and countless civilians dead, the drone strike that killed 10 children, the supply chain crisis, the fact that store shelves are emptying and truckers are protesting the mandates, the Ukraine issue, and so much more.
We need to take our country back. Remember to vote based on policy, not on party. We need to see more true Americans put into office and these career criminals removed.
