It was a tough day at work for Peter Doocy.
Even the President of the United States has to cuss people out from time to time. On Monday, January 24th, Joe Biden was hit with a question about inflation from Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy, which prompted him to choose violence.
“Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?” the journalist shouted as reporters were being ushered out of a photo op with a group who addresses inflation – the White House Competition Council.

“It’s a great asset – more inflation,” Biden sarcastically quipped into the microphone, adding “what a stupid son of a bitch,” as the group was leaving the room.
As Buzzfeed News notes, this wouldn’t be the first time the 79-year-old President beefed with Fox News staff members; in fact, just last week he and Doocy had a back-and-forth that also earned the journalist an insult from Biden.
“You always ask me the nicest questions,” Biden told Doocy after calling on him during a presser. “All right, I got a whole binder full,” the reported replied. “I know you do,” POTUS shot back. “None of them make a lot of sense to me.”
It’s also been noted that when another Fox employee inquired “why are you waiting for Putin to make the first move, sir?” the Scranton, Pennsylvania-born politician said, “what a stupid question.”
In other news, comedian Bill Maher has some thoughts on Biden’s 2024 Presidential campaign – if he runs, that is. The 66-year-old recently suggested that the President and Barack Obama should get married in title only so that the former leader of the nation can be back in the Oval Office, which he thinks would be very appealing to the Democrats – read more about that here.[Via]
