President Joe Biden got caught calling Fox News’ Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b—h” on a hot mic on Monday, and reached out to the reporter to “clear the air” after the incident.
Biden got testy with journalists after meeting with the Competition Council to figure out how to lower surging prices across the country. He snapped when one of them designed to ask a question about a call he had earlier in the day, related to the escalating tension between Ukraine and Russia.
“The only reason I don’t like doing this because you never report on why it’s called a meeting because you never report on why I’ve called a meeting, and this is important” Biden complained.
“Will you take questions on inflation then?” Doocy chimed in. “Do you think inflation will be a political liability ahead of the midterms?”
As reporters were swept out of the room, Biden was recorded saying, “That’s a great asset, more inflation. What a stupid son of a b—h.”
Doocy didn’t even hear the comment, as reporters were shouted at to get out.
“But somebody came up to me in the briefing room a few minutes later and said, ‘did you hear what the President said?’ And I said, ‘no, what?’ They said, ‘he called you a stupid SOB, and I said, ‘did he say SOB?’ And the person said, ‘no,’” he reported to Fox News anchor Jesse Watters.
“So, Doocy, I think the president’s right, you are a stupid SOB,” Watters quipped.
“Yeah, nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it’s not true,” Doocy cracked back.
During an appearance on “Hannity” later in the evening, the reporter revealed that Biden had personally called him about an hour after his harsh remarks.
“He said ‘It’s nothing personal, pal,'” Doocy remarked. “And we went back and forth, and we were talking about just kind of moving forward, and I made sure to tell him that I’m always gonna try to ask something different than what everybody else is asking. And he said, ‘You got to.’ And that’s a quote from the president, so I’ll keep doing it.”
Hannity questioned if Biden had actually apologized, but Doocy said “He cleared the air and I appreciate it, we had a nice call.”
Hannity pointed out that it still didn’t “sound like an apology” from the President, but Doocy was satisfied with the exchange.
“Hey Sean, the world is on the brink of, like, World War III right now with all of this stuff going on,” he told the host. “I appreciate that the president took a couple of minutes out this evening while he was still at this desk to give me a call and clear the air.”
“I don’t need anybody to apologize to me. He can call me whatever he wants as long as it gets him talking!” Doocy concluded. “I think that’s enough. That’s enough. So we can move on. We can now move forward. There will be years- three to seven years of opportunities to ask him about different stuff.”
SOB? I think you ought to take a long hard look at your own loser son Brandon. FJB!
If I were Doocy, I would shoot back calling him ‘ You ae a phucking basket ‘.
More pathetically preposterous behavior from the creature whose presence in the White House defiles it and why TRUE AMERICANS know who and what the true SOB Is! I am a 77year old, 100% Vietnam vet disabled by Agent Orange who has a 55 year old degree in Government and in my lifetime NEVER seen a less effective excuse for leadership than that exhibited by this so-called leader and his ENTIRE ADMINISTRATION : AND, THE PITIFUL PERFORMANCE RECORDS OF BOTH PROVES THE CONTENTION!
I’m only 66, no Agent Orange (Thank God), 100% Rated Disabled Vet, I don’t have your degree, but am fairly well read, and try to keep up with politics. I agree with you 100%. The only thing I find more pathetic is the many time that he called out someone for a fight while on the campaign trail. The coward fully knowing his SS body guards would not allow it, and would make his victim of the day look at fault.
AMEN, AMEN and AMEN!!!
Brink of World War III and China Joe and Peter Dooshbag thought it was more important to clear the air ..Priorities of 2 school yard idiots
Why is Doocy an idiot? Your guy JB can’t take a question on the insane level of inflation that’s plaguing us all, that he caused without calling people names? He s an embarrassment.
The U.S. has never had such a loser for a President, but I guess that goes along with the worst Speaker (Pathetic Pelosi) of all time too. Hey Repubs, get back the power in 2022.
Doocy didn’t have much of a choice but to play nice when talking about Biden’s call if he ever wanted a future question answered. Imagine the national press’s reaction if that had been President Trump calling a mainstream reporter that, it would have been front page news for weeks. Trump called them as he saw them in public, he didn’t snipe after the press conferences were over.
What other ‘reporter’ besides Doocy has had the courage to preface a question to Biden with the admission that what he was going to ask was not on the ‘approved’ list of questions? Real press conferences have a topic the administration wants to address but they do NOT have a list of approved questions, they are supposed to be for a FREE and unbiased press to ask questions their viewers want answered, on or off topic.
Hey, Fake Biden, His mother is not a dog. A bitch is a dog. Those were fighting words from a man who is supposed to be a professional man of honor. That’s a laugh! Biden, you are a low life thug!
So, what is Idaho hiding. Seems to me if Lindell’s accusations are wrong they would allow an audit. We know democrats lie their heads off and cheat consistently so what makes those idiots think they are any better than Georgia, Pennsylvania. Michigan or any other democratic state. Have an independent audit to prove this allegation by Mike is wrong. Lying was as it is and if you are guilty and it proves Mike is right then everyone of your democratic cohorts should be charged and sent to prison. Elections are not games they affect this country and all its citizens and now everyone sees what your corruption, if it’s proven, really has done. Biden is not and never should have become President. Elections have consequences and anyone who corrupted and turned this past election or any future elections will pay for it one way or another. God will judge you all.
Okay, two things wrong with Biden’s insult. One: The last person who should call anyone else, “stupid” is Mumbles Biden. Two: The insult is outrageous; Peter Doocy is not old enough to have ever even met Biden’s mother.
Give POTUS a break. He doesn’t have his own teeth, his socks and shoes are wet and his handlers need to clean the poopie out of his diaper. It’s amazing they let him mumble to an audience.
Joey is a cretinous, senile old fart.
What a major jerk this Senile Old man is. YOU ARE THE SOB Biden. You have ruined our country and you DON’T CARE. You can’t answer questions because you don’t know the answers. I applaud Peter, but would NEVER APPLAUD YOU. The worst President ever.
Biden= Media abuse Hooray now do same to CNN MSNBC
…look at the source… now who is the real SOB ?
He is the worst president that we have ever had. I am sure the people that have elected this idiot, for 40 years must be very proud.
I can’t believe on Quora. People actually support and defend this idiot, Biden.
But did you hear what Biden said just before the SOB comment. Biden said inflation was an asset, more inflation and then he said with hot mike what a stupid SOB.
I’m surprise more people didn’t notice that. I had to re-read it a couple of times. I couldn’t believe the idiot actually said that. I wonder if anyone in the news media picked up on that.
The only reason he called was because he realize the Mike caught it, period.
