If anyone reading this truly believes Joe Biden was “caught” on “hot mic” calling Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a bitch” then you may as well read a different article.
The exchange occurred during a White House press conference in which the cognitively deficient president was discussing so-called efforts to lower consumer prices for working class Americans.
Fox News Correspondent Peter Doocy shouted a question at Biden that seemingly caused a reaction unbecoming of a United States President.
“Do you think inflation is a political liability in the mid-terms?” Doocy asked the president.
“It’s a great asset,” the president sarcastically responded. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”

The video clip immediately went viral causing many to point out the similarities between Former President Trump’s treatment of the press and Joe Biden’s outburst.
However, Trump was viscously attacked by the press since day one of his presidency and Joe Biden was said to be a “return to decency.”
What happened, Uncle Joe?
Still, as unaware and mentally retarded as Joe Biden is, he is no stranger when it comes to dealing with reporters. It wasn’t a “hot mic” that caught Biden cursing at a reporter, he was fully aware there was a live microphone directly in front of him.
Joe Biden was mirroring Peter Doocy’s words and tone in an effort to exert dominance and perform a show of strength. Biden knew precisely the “fallout” that would occur, but knew even better he’d get away with it. With the entire media establishment on his side, Biden fully understood he’d have multiple “news” networks defending his words against the big bad Fox News reporter.
Actually, it was a solid tactic for an ordinarily aloof Joe Biden.
And just like clockwork, establishment media pundits immediately began pointing out of the differences between Trump’s rhetoric and Biden’s insults.
This is from 2018. It's still true. Biden was wrong to call Doocy an SOB. The press is right to hold presidents to high standards. Biden doesn't berate the media like Trump, so the context for today is different, but it's still out of line https://t.co/RYiO4Nyg08

And just like clockwork, online conservatives began calling out the hypocrisy.
If Trump said this to a CNN reporter they’d be holding candle light vigils to commemorate the tragedy for the next 50 years https://t.co/pAU7yghHCD

Meanwhile, Doocy handled the situation exactly how a reporter should — with a bit of humor.
He laughed it off shortly after the exchange during an appearance on Fox News:

However, in a shocking turn, Doocy dropped a bomb that no one expected. While on appearing on Sean Hannity’s nightly program Doocy revealed that Joe Biden actually called the Fox News reporter on his personal cell phone.

We are truly, seriously, genuinely living in a clown world.
