President Joe Biden finally said what Americans across the country have been saying about Fox News “reporter” Peter Doocy every time he asks a dumb question during a press conference.
Biden made history on Monday by holding the longest press conference by any president, including the long-winded Donald Trump, who used press conferences to talk about himself and spread propaganda.
Doocy has been a constant presence in the White House briefing room, often resulting in him being schooled and humiliated by Press Secretary Jen Psaki. Biden has owned Doocy before in response to a “gotcha” question, but he got the chance to do it again after Doocy asked about inflation.
“Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?” Doocy asked.
Inflation has actually been in the process of stabilizing thanks to measures enacted by the Biden administration, which inherited a weak economy and a global pandemic from Trump. Inflation had been dropping prior to December.
Biden responded with sarcasm before cursing Doocy on a hot mic.
“It’s a great asset—more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch,” Biden said.

As usual, conservatives threw a collective hissy fit and clutched their pearls, conveniently ignoring or forgetting Trump’s even worse behavior during press conferences, not to mention Trump’s permanently suspended Twitter account.
Trump once outright called a black NFL quarterback a “son of a bitch” during a rally just for taking a knee in protest of police brutality and racial injustice. Trump was literally caught on a hot mic bragging about grabbing women by the genitalia without their consent. Trump abused and threatened media outlets and reporters for years with no complaints from conservatives. But Biden calls a Fox News “reporter” who tries to troll him and his administration every day a “son of a bitch” and it’s suddenly a big scandal? Once again, conservatives are hypocrites.
By all rights, Doocy should not even be in the room since his network has admitted in court that they are just an “entertainment” outlet and not a real news organization. His press pass should be revoked. Then we can watch conservatives cry some more.
