On Monday, President Joe Biden said of Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy “What a stupid son of a b***h.”
Biden used the foul language after Doocy asked the president if he believes inflation will be a political liability in the 2022 midterm elections.
Biden responded by saying that it is “a great asset — more inflation,” before adding, “What a stupid son of a b***h.”
Back in 2021, during a speech, President Joe Biden told staff, “I will fire you on the spot” for treating others with disrespect. Of course, he only made that statement as a form of disrespect to former President Donald Trump, a man who was disrespected daily by Biden’s party and the party’s stenographers in the mainstream news media. Otherwise, Jen Psaki would have been canned a long time ago.
“I’m not joking when I say this, if you are ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you, I will fire you on the spot,” he said.
“Everyone, every single person, regardless of their background, is entitled to be treated with dignity,” Biden added. “I expect you to do that for all the folks you deal with.”
Joe Biden just violated his own rule. Does this mean Biden will fire himself?
Later that day, on Fox’s “The Five,” Jesse Watters ribbed Doocy by saying he believes Biden was right that he is a stupid SOB, and Doocy replied cheerfully that no one has fact-checked Biden yet and said it’s not true.
“Very presidential,” GOP Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri posted on social media about the president’s remark.

“Classless,” Stephen Gutowski, of the Washington Free Beacon, tweeted.

Washington, DC, has been spending money as fast as it can be printed, and when that spending is added to the money supply, it begins pushing inflation rates higher and higher. This hurts Americans by reducing their spending power. They get far less for what things used to cost. In fact, the consumer price index released in early January revealed that inflation rose 7 percent over the last year.
“The all items index rose 7.0 percent for the 12 months ending December, the largest 12-month increase since the period ending June 1982,” the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. “The all items less food and energy index rose 5.5 percent, the largest 12-month change since the period ending February 1991. The energy index rose 29.3 percent over the last year, and the food index increased 6.3 percent.”
Doocy took the insult in stride, telling Fox’s Sean Hannity that Biden called him on his cell phone and said, “It’s nothing, personal pal.”
The Fox reporter said he told Biden that he will always ask questions that are different from what other reporters are asking, and that Biden’s responded saying, “You’ve got to.”
