During a press conference yesterday, President Joe Biden was caught swearing by a hot mic at a reporter. It seemed like Biden didn’t learn a lesson from Dr. Anthony Fauci last week. After a hot mic caught Fauci swearing at a GOP senator, Biden did the same yesterday.
Biden Caught Swearing At Fox News Reporter Peter Doocy
This time, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy was on the receiving end of the President’s verbal abuse. Biden was caught swearing “What a stupid son of a bitch” after Doocy asked a question on inflation.
Earlier, Doocy asked if the President will take a question on inflation. This was during a White House event focused on lowering prices for working families. Doocy then proceeded to ask if “inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?”
Biden didn’t take kindly to the question, He replied sarcastically “No, it’s a great asset. More inflation”. However, the president forgot all about the hot mic when he followed up his retort with “What a stupid son of a bitch.”
Biden’s Contentious Relationship With Doocy
Prior to the hot mic event, Biden already maintained a dour relationship with the Fox reporter. Doocy covered Biden’s presidential campaign in 2020.
This is probably where he earned Biden’s ire. A more recent clash involved a press conference last week. Doocy asked Biden why he took the US so far left. The President laughed off the question before answering that he’s not a socialist.
After yesterday’s conference, videos of Biden getting caught swearing at Doocy circulated around social media.
However, when asked about the remarks, Doocy said he couldn’t hear what Biden said at the time. Doocy managed to crack a joke about what happened. “Nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it’s not true,” he said.
Biden Caught Swearing Because He Didn’t Want Off Topic Questions
Doocy theorized that Biden erupted because he went off-script. “He didn’t want to take any questions off topic. And now we’ll just wait to see if the White House has to bleep that out.”
However, Doocy clarified that Biden later called him to apologize. The Fox News reporter said that Biden told him it was “nothing personal, pal”.
Afterward, they went back and forth about moving forward from the matter. In summary, Doocy said he and the President shared a nice call. He told the President that he will always try to ask something different. He said that Biden replied, “You’ve got to.”
Fauci Also Caught By Hot Mic
Aside from Biden getting caught swearing, the hot mic also hit another administration official last week. That time, it was White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci who fell victim to the hot mic.
After a back and forth with Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) about his finances, Fauci was caught uttering “What a moron!’
