President Joe Biden gave an expletive-filled assessment of a reporter on Monday after he was asked about inflation.
Biden was meeting with the Competition Council and members of his cabinet on Monday regarding lowering prices for Americans.
After the president gave remarks, reporters began asking questions. Peter Dooley, a reporter for Fox News who regularly challenges the administration over its policies, asked a question that led to Biden’s scathing response.
CNN’s Brian Stelter reported the exchange on Twitter. He wrote:
“At the end of a Biden photo op, when reporters shouted Q’s hoping he’d respond, Fox’s Peter Doocy asked, ‘Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?’
“Biden deadpanned: ‘It’s a great asset—more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.’”

According to Fox News, Doocy joked about Biden’s comments during an appearance on “The Five” just moments after the exchange.
“Nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it’s not true,” Doocy said.
Biden also snapped at another reporter who asked about the administration’s call with European leaders.
“The only reason I don’t like doing is this because you never report on why I’ve called a meeting, and this is important,” Biden responded.
Then he answered the questions saying, “I had a very, very, very good meeting, total unanimity with all the European leaders. We’ll talk about it later. Thank you.”
