Biden Apologizes to Peter Doocy But Hot Mic Gaffe Makes it into White House Transcript

Source: Newsweek

President Joe Biden apologized after calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a "stupid son of a b****" on a hot microphone during a meeting about inflation.

Biden met with administration officials Monday afternoon to discuss solutions to deal with the high inflation many in the United States continue to grapple with. Reporters were allowed in the room for the meeting, and several lobbed questions to Biden at the end of it.

Doocy pressed Biden on whether or not he believes inflation will be a "political liability in the midterms."

"It's a great assetómore inflation. What a stupid son of a b****," Biden sarcastically quipped, not appearing to intend for the remark to be heard by others.

I wish he hadn't, but Biden is a bigger man than any republican.

2. It just makes me like him more, honestly.

Truth is, Biden has always been the one to actually "say it as it is."

6. Biden always takes the high road.

I guess that is one of the reasons I love him.

I would have a hard time apologizing to a twit like Doocy, especially since it is factually true that he is a stupid sob.

I thought they like their Pols "plainspoken". Or is that just an excuse for whenever a Republicans gets caught swearing?

24. While I Fully Expected Inflation In Areas

Affected by the supply chain problems I did not expect the inflation to broaden out as it apparently has. On the other hand, that was based on the vaccinations bringing Covid under control but because prolonging Covid could prolong the inflation challenge. Corporate earnings are expected to come out shortly and if they are strong, it would suggest some price gouging has taken over. Indeed, within the last 10 days or so I have seen bananas go from 38 cents a pound to 72 cents a pound. Inflation is too hot to be driven by either demand pull or cost push except in sectors such as chips manufacturing. It is more like expectations are driving this rather than actual market conditions.

27. I just don't care

But I guess a simple apology is probably the best way of moving on from it. Biden's been around too long to let a guy like Doocy get his goat.

28. Doocy asks rude pointless questions. Last week he wanted to know...

...why Joe Biden is taking the country so far to the left?

Of course it wasn't even a question, it was an ignorant statement by a stupid son of a bitch.

30. Regardless

Doozy is a stupid son of a bitch or at least he plays the part of a useful idiot on tv. Regardless, the President did what all people should do if they have behaved badly. Stand up and apologize. That is about our Presidentís character - itís not about that complete shit Peter Doocy.

31. I'll bet...

...Joe had his fingers crossed behind his back when he apologized...

...Joe should call out every republican son of a bitch then apologize...

...people will remember the right-wing prick getting smacked but will forget the apology...

...it looks 'presidentially' strong...
