WASHINGTON, DC – During a January 24th photo op for President Biden, numerous reporters began shouting an amalgamation of questions toward the president before being moved out of the room. But when Fox News’ Peter Doocy hurled a question about inflation, Biden said the quiet part out loud – namely thanks to a hot mic.
As seen on video, numerous reporters actively asked quick questions before they were ushered out by White House staff. While among those hurried out of the room, Doocy quickly fired off, “Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?”
Biden responded quietly and in a rather mocking tone, saying, “It’s a great asset – more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”
Aside from the insulting aspect of the debacle – it’s not exactly clear what Biden meant with the notion of more inflation being a “great asset” unless he was making said remarks in a sort of sarcastic jest due to inflation ostensibly being an almost certainty in terms of impacting the midterm elections.
UPDATE: Peter Doocy responds…
