A hot mic on Monday caught President Joe Biden calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a "stupid son of a b*tch" after he asked the president if he believed inflation would be political liability for him.
Fox News host Jesse Watters spoke to Doocy shortly after the president profanely slammed him, and he proceeded to have some fun at Doocy's expense.
"I think the president's right," Watters told him while laughing. "You are a stupid SOB!"
Doocy took the ridicule in stride, however.
"Yeah, nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it's not true," he said, which resulted in more laughter.
After Doocy had asked Biden earlier if he believed inflation would hurt him in the upcoming midterm elections, Biden sarcastically replied, "That's a great asset, more inflation," and then added, "what a stupid son of a b*tch."

President Joe Biden didn't hold back when Fox News' Peter Doocy was shouting questions at him about inflation.
Biden was meeting with Cabinet Secretaries Monday afternoon and members of the media were in the room for a photo-op where several were shouting questions.
Doocy asked Biden if he thought high inflation would be a political liability heading into this year's midterm elections.
"That's a great asset. More inflation," Biden said, his voice dripping with sarcasm. "What a stupid son of a b*tch."
Doocy tangles in the press room almost daily with Jen Psaki, who frequently corrects him when he spouts misinformation during briefings.

In the trial of three former Minneapolis police officers charged with violating George Floyd’s civil rights, prosecutors are arguing that they did nothing as Derek Chauvin "slowly killed" Floyd by pressing his knee into Floyd's neck, TIME Magazine reports.
Former Officers J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao are charged with depriving Floyd of his civil rights while acting under government authority after Chauvin pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for 9 1/2 minutes while the 46-year-old Black man was facedown.
“For second after second, minute after minute, these three CPR-trained defendants stood or knelt next to Officer Chauvin as he slowly killed George Floyd right in front of them,” prosecutor Samantha Trepel, who works for the Justice Department’s civil rights division, told the jury during opening statements. “They chose not to protect George Floyd, the man they had handcuffed and placed in their custody.”
Kueng's attorney, Tom Plunkett, argued that Chauvin called “all of the shots” as the senior officer at the scene, and he said the Minneapolis Police Department did too little to train officers to intervene when a colleague is committing a crime.
"You’ll see and hear officer Chauvin call all of the shots,” said Plunkett, adding that Chauvin was Kueng’s field training officer and had “considerable sway” over his future.
Kueng, who is Black; Lane, who is white; and Thao, who is Hmong American, are all charged for failing to provide Floyd with medical care. Thao and Kueng face an additional count for failing to stop Chauvin.
