President Joe Biden's words have often got him into trouble, and on January 24, 2022, it happened again. Only this time it wasn't a gaffe, but rather an angry vent at Fox News reporter Peter Doocy. The net erupted in cheers and support for the President after he appeared to call Doocy a "stupid son of a b***h."  

Notably, this isn't the first time Doocy has clashed with the current administration. Days after being sworn in, Biden jokingly told Doocy he talked to Putin about the reporter, quipping, "He sends his best." In March, Doocy was snubbed at Biden's first-ever press conference, but no support online after claiming to have a "binder full of questions." Then in April, Press Secretary Jen Psaki also took a dig at Doocy over Georgia's voter laws, leading the Internet to joke he had been "schooled."

Despite being repeatedly slammed and shunned, Doocy has continued to show up at White House press briefings and media sessions, as he did on January 24. Biden held a quick photo op after meeting with the Competition Council, as he sought to lower prices for Americans. It was during that op that Biden appeared to insult Doocy.

Did Biden really curse out Peter Doocy?

Unlike past hot-mic moments, this one seems pretty clear. There's no mistaking the president's words, and it certainly appears as if it was targeted at Doocy. During the photo op, several reporters shouted questions hoping Biden would answer. Doocy also lobbed one, asking, "Okay, what about inflation? Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?" as the press was being ushered out. Interestingly, Biden chose to respond to that, when he refused to answer others. "No, that’s a great asset. More inflation," he snapped back, before adding, "What a stupid son of a b--ch."



 

 

It's unclear if Biden thought his mike was off or if he was just being sarcastic, but either way the answer doesn't look good. Inflation is a genuine concern for millions of Americans, and many experts have predicted it could be the issue that hands the Senate back to the GOP in the upcoming midterms. So it makes little sense why Biden would call it an "asset", especially at a time when his poll numbers are continuously sinking. 

'Biden was calling it like it is'

However, social media chose to overlook that and support Biden, by trolling Doocy yet again. "To be fair, we all think it every time Doocy opens his mouth," one user tweeted, while another defended Biden by saying, "Look...before we go down an endless cycle of pearl-clutching and calls for civility, can we just be honest that everyone wins here? Biden gets to vent. Democrats get to laugh. Doocy gets endless amounts of air time playing the victim. No one apologize. Just laugh and move on."



 



 

 

"Biden rarely drops curses, but when he does it's a Doocy," joked George Takei. Another person mocked, "In all fairness, Peter Doocy of Fox News is a stupid s.o.b. and President Biden was calling it like it is." One user tweeted, "Peter Doocy getting dragged by President Biden is what I live for." Another social media user said: "As far as I am concerned President Biden told the truth. Maybe you need to do better. Like ask legitimate questions and not asinine ones."



 



 



 

 



 

 

Many users also rushed to defend Doocy. Senator Marsha Blackburn tweeted, "Mr. President, your nasty remarks toward another member of the press corps are beneath the dignity of the office. As president, you owe Peter Doocy and the American people not only answers on inflation but an apology for your out-of-line comments." Lauren Boebart said, "Democrats: Donald Trump’s attacks on the press are an attack on the First Amendment. Joe Biden to Peter Doocy: “What a stupid son of a b*tch.” Democrats: *silence*."



 



 

 

It was later reported that Biden called Doocy to apologize for his comments. The reporter later laughed about it during an appearance on Fox's 'The Five', telling Jesse Watters, "nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it's not true." Speaking on 'Hannity' the reporter explained Biden called him within an hour of the event and apologized: "He said ‘It’s nothing personal, pal. And we went back and forth, and we were talking about just kind of moving forward, and I made sure to tell him that I'm always gonna try to ask something different than what everybody else is asking. And he said, ‘You got to.’ And that's a quote from the president, so I'll keep doing it."

When Fox News' Sean Hannity asked if Biden apologized, Doocy responded, "He cleared the air and I appreciate it."
