Biden caught on hot mic calling reporter a ‘stupid son of a b***h’.

JOE Biden appeared to call reporter Peter Doocy a "stupid son of a b***h" in a hot mic moment after being questioned about inflation.

The hot mic clip was captured as reporters exited a meeting of the White House Competitiveness Council on Monday.

Fox News White House corespondent Doocy called out, "Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms" as the meeting was coming to a close.

Biden appeared to be mocking the question, replying, "It's a great asset. More inflation.

He then added: "What a stupid son of a b***h."

After the exchange, Doocy spoke about the jab on TV, saying he had not initially heard the president's remarks.

"I couldn't even hear him because people were shouting at us to get out, but somebody came up to me in the briefing room a few minutes later and said, 'Did you hear what the president said?'

"And I said, 'No, what?' And they said, 'He called you a stupid SOB.' And I said, 'Did he say SOB?' And the person said no."
