(FreedomBeacon.com)- The story of President Joe Biden calling Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b*tch” spread like wildfire this week. The president was caught on a hot mic making the derogatory comment about the journalist as White House aides forced journalists out of the room.
Doocy asked the president if he believes that rising inflation would hinder his party’s efforts to maintain control of Congress in 2022, prompting Biden to sarcastically remark, “no, it’s a great asset…more inflation…what a stupid son of a b*tch.”

And while you probably assumed that the comment would be ignored by the official transcript…you’d have been wrong.
It turns out that the White House press shop included the exchange in an official transcript. It’s not just Doocy’s question, either – it’s Biden’s insulting comments that were caught on a mic he didn’t know was still hooked up.
“Q Will you send troops to Ukraine, sir
Q Why are sending 8,500 troops to Ukraine, possibly?
Q Will you take questions on inflation then? Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?
THE PRESIDENT: No, it’s a great asset. More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.

You weren’t expecting to see that, were you?
