President Joe Biden referred to Fox News reporter Peter Doocy as a “stupid son of a bitch” during a White House photo opportunity on Monday.
As reporters were being ushered out of the room by White House staff, Doocy attempted to ask the president a final question.
“Do you think inflation will be a political liability in the midterms?” Doocy asked. (RELATED: Biden Says America Is ‘More Unified’ Now Than When He Took Office)

Biden responded with a sarcastic comment under his breath, appearing to address the Fox News reporter.
“It’s a great asset. More inflation,” Biden muttered. “What a stupid son of a bitch.”
The remarks are the latest skirmish between Doocy and Biden; the two engaged in a testy back-and-forth over Biden’s response to COVID-19 in December following the onset of the Omicron variant.
Biden has also sparred with the Fox News reporter before, questioning his journalistic acumen at a press conference Wednesday after the reporter posed a question on the president’s political trajectory.
“You always ask me the nicest questions,” Biden told Doocy last week. “None of them make a lot of sense to me, but fire away.”
