Reporters are supposed to ask the tough questions of our leaders. Our MSM only knows how to do that when they interview a member of the GOP, so Biden has been treated pretty gently by most of the MSM. But Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy is after the facts, which is why Psaki has rolled her eyes more than once at one of his questions. But this time was different. During a Press Conference held by Biden, Doocy asked about inflation at the end of the meeting, and Biden on a hot mic responded by calling Doocy an SOB. Doocy did not hear it at the time but later realized the president of the United States just called him a son of a b*tch. Biden came to his senses, or maybe the meds kicked in, and called Doocy later to give a weak apology.
Doocy talked about the incident on Fox & Friends.
“The only reason I don’t like doing is this because you never report on why it’s called a meeting because you never report on why I’ve called a meeting, and this is important,” Biden said. “I had a very, very, very good meeting, totally unanimity with all the European leaders will talk about it later. Thank you.”
“Will you take questions on inflation then?” Doocy then asked. “Do you think inflation will be a political liability ahead of the midterms?”
As Doocy and the other reporters were being shooed away, Biden took a swipe at the Fox News correspondent.
“That’s a great asset, more inflation. What a stupid son of a b—-,” Biden said to his cabinet.
“So I shouted, ‘Okay, what about inflation? Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?’” Doocy said. “I couldn’t even hear him because people were shouting at us to get out. But somebody came up to me in the briefing room a few minutes later and said, ‘Did you hear what the president said?’ And I said, ‘No, what?’ They said, ‘He called you stupid SOB.’ And I said, ‘Did he say SOB?’ and the person said, ‘No.’”
“So Doocy, I think the president’s right, you are a stupid SOB,” co-host Jesse Watters quipped.
“Yeah, nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it’s not true,” Doocy replied.

He later talked about how Biden called him about the incident on Hannity.
“Appearing on “Hannity,” Doocy said the president reached out to him “within about an hour of that exchange.”
When Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked if Biden apologized, Doocy responded, “He cleared the air and I appreciate it.”
“We had a nice call,” Doocy said.
“That’s not an answer,” Hannity chuckled. “That doesn’t sound like an apology.”
“He said ‘It’s nothing personal, pal.’ And I told him that I appreciate him reaching out,” Doocy replied, adding, “Hey Sean, the world is on the brink of, like, World War III right now with all of this stuff going on. I appreciate that the president took a couple of minutes out this evening while he was still at this desk to give me a call and clear the air.”
“I don’t need anybody to apologize to me. He can call me whatever he wants as long as it gets him talking!” Doocy added. “I think that’s enough. That’s enough. So we can move on. We can now move forward. There will be years- three to seven years of opportunities to ask him about different stuff.”
Doocy is getting better treatment than most Americans. Biden owes us all an apology for how he handled this presidency so far, especially Afghanistan and our border crisis.
