President Joe Biden called Fox reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” after Doocy asked him about inflation. The comment was picked up on a hot mic and it’s not clear that the President knew anyone could actually hear him. Doocy told Sean Hannity later that night that Biden reached out to him about one hour later to “apologize”.
This apology, however, seemed like something he was forced to do and not very genuine. Biden simply told Doocy “nothing personal, pal”. The two went back and forth after that but Doocy did not disclose a lot of what was said. What he did disclose is that Biden acknowledged his point about having to ask questions that everyone else in the room does not ask.
It will be very interesting to see how this episode gets covered by the media. Former President Donald Trump had his own “son of a b****” moment. This happened back when Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players were kneeling on the field and disrespecting law enforcement. The media ran with the story for days, weeks, even years depending on the specific publication. This story will undoubtedly get swept under the rug and ignored in favor of more insignificant coverage of Russia allegedly aggressing upon Ukraine.
Inflation is a serious topic that many Americans have concerns about. As a matter of fact, recent polls suggest that inflation is the most important topic on the mind of all Americans, left or right. Daily staples like food and fuel have gone through the roof. That’s not to mention the cost of housing including rent and new home purchases. Supply chain issues continue to ravage small businesses, therefore, causing inflation by lack of supply coupled with high demand. So rather than simply dismissing Peter Doocy as a “stupid son of a b****”, Biden should actually address these issues head-on.
