Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked a question about inflation today as the press corp was being ushered out. While Biden didn’t answer the question, he was caught on a hot-mic insulting Doocy, calling him a “stupid son of a bitch”:

It sounds like to me Doocy was asking if Biden thought the inflation crisis was a political liability. I couldn’t understand every word of his question, but Biden clearly said to himself “No it’s a great asset. More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”
Wow, what a jackass. But hey, I’m sure the media will rush to defend Doocy and condemn Biden – you know, like they always do.
UPDATE: Peter Doocy responds to it on Fox News:

Doocy was asking if Biden thought the inflation crisis was a political liability for the midterms. Doocy took Biden’s insult in stride though, being light-hearted about it, even making a fact-check joke about it. Class act.
