President Biden appeared to be caught on a hot mic on Monday, calling a Fox News correspondent a “stupid son of a bitch” after the journalist asked a question about inflation. It’s unclear whether the president knew his mic was still on, but the moment was also caught on camera. 

“Do you think inflation is a political liability going into the midterms?” Fox News White House correspondent Doocy could be heard shouting as journalists filed out of the room.

“No, it’s a great asset,” Mr. Biden muttered sarcastically. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”

Doocy later told Fox News’ Bret Baier other reporters had to tell him what the president said because he couldn’t hear anything over the shouting of the White House’s press wranglers. 

The White House has yet to comment on the president’s remark. 

Doocy is known for his combative approach to White House questioning, frequently pressing White House press secretary Jen Psaki and the president himself about topics like inflation, immigration and crime.

Mr. Biden, who held a nearly two-hour news conference with reporters last week, has occasionally become frustrated with reporters’ questions. During that marathon news conference, he raised his voice to another reporter who asked the president about his comments comparing those who opposed his voting access agenda to the likes of Bull Connor and George Wallace.
