“Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?” Doocy then asked.
“No, it’s a great asset,” Biden responded. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”
Biden has had a somewhat contentious relationship with Doocy since the Fox News reporter covered his presidential campaign in 2020.
During a press conference last week, Doocy asked Biden why he had taken the country “so far to the left,” which the president laughed off before saying he’s not a socialist.
Video of Biden’s comment was widely circulated on social media within minutes. Speaking later on “Special Report” about the comments, Doocy said he couldn’t hear the president at the time.
