Fox News reporter says Biden called him after ‘son of a b—-‘ remark
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said late Monday that President Biden called him after being caught on a hot mic referring to him as a “stupid son of a bitch” hours earlier at an event at the White House.
“He called my cellphone, and he said, ‘It’s nothing personal, pal,” Doocy told Fox News colleague and prime-time host Sean Hannity. “And we went back and forth, and we were talking about just kind of moving forward.”
Doocy said he told the president he would always “try and ask something different than what everybody else is asking,” to which he said Biden replied, “You’ve got to.”
Doocy at the White House on Monday afternoon shouted a question to the president after a meeting with administration officials on efforts to lower prices for working families.
“Will you take a question on inflation?” Doocy asked. “Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?”
