Fact Check: Did President Joe Biden Really Say That?
Yes, he did.
The claims are accurate: At a White House event Monday, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Biden if he thought “inflation is a political liability in the midterms.” Biden was caught on camera replying, “It's a great asset, more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”
Doocy appeared on Fox News later that evening and said that Biden had called him to apologize and “cleared the air.”
