Many are calling what Joe Biden said on Monday a “hot mic gaffe,” when Biden was overheard calling Fox News’ Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a bitch.” But that’s not what that moment was. More on that in a bit.
The comment from Biden came after the official White House video feed on YouTube had been cut. However, C-SPAN’s feed continued.
As the video below shows, after Biden’s opening remarks, White House handlers ushered members of the press corps out of the room. Biden’s handlers do this because the man suffers from a combination of dementia mixed with Tourette’s and they don’t know what Biden will do next.
While being corralled out of the room, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy shouted, “Will you take questions on inflation? Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?”
Clearly irritated, Biden muttered “What a stupid son of a bitch.”
This was not a hot mic moment. In media, you are taught one thing: the mic is ALWAYS hot. Until they remove the microphone, you are to behave as if everything you say is being heard.
What the Left won’t admit is that Biden is a mean-spirited incompetent who gets upset when pressed about his job performance. Doocy clearly irritated the old fool by asking a pertinent question. And Biden knew the answer.
The Democrats will get their clocks cleaned in the midterm elections…
As for decorum and respect, Biden clearly forgot what he said about such things not long ago.
As for Doocy, he reported that Biden called him to “apologize”.
“It’s nothing personal, pal,” the president said, according to Doocy. Pressed by Hannity, Doocy declined to say whether it was an apology, as CNN reported, but noted that Biden sought to “clear the air” and said it was “a nice call.”
Doocy said “I made sure to tell him that I’m always going to try to ask something different than what everybody else is asking, and he said, ‘You’ve got to,'”Doocy added, noting that he appreciated Biden taking time for the call as the crisis in Ukraine looms.
Indeed. Ukraine looms. And we have a demented clown making life and death decisions for military personnel, and he can’t even tie his own shoes.
