FNC's Jesse Watters Jokes to Peter Doocy: 'I Think the President’s Right — You Are a Stupid SOB'
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy said Monday on FNC’s “The Five” that he did not hear President Joe Biden calling him a “stupid son of a bitch,” which was caught on a hot microphone.
After the press conference, Doocy asked Biden, “Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?”
Biden responded, “It’s a great asset, more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”
Former Congressman Harold Ford Jr. asked, “Have you been called by the White House and asked to come to the Oval Office tomorrow for an interview?”
Doocy said, “No, and I don’t think that’s coming, either.”
He continued, “I couldn’t even hear him because people were shouting at us to get out.”
Co-host Jesse Watters joked, “I think the president’s right — you are a stupid SOB.”
Doocy quipped, “Yea, nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it’s not true.”
Watters added, “Everyone is talking about you. You are going to be known as the stupid SOB guy.”
Co-host Greg Gutfeld said, “It is something great that you were called a name by a president. It is something that will be in the history books.”
Co-host Dana Perino said, “You might already have a book title.”
