(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- President Joe Biden, who once campaigned on the idea of “civility” and restoring the “soul” of the nation, has turned out to be perhaps even angrier than former President Donald Trump – and he doesn’t have half the enemies in the media that Trump did.
That’s why it was strange to see the president call Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b*tch” at the end of a press conference last week. The president was caught on a hot mic making the insult after Doocy questioned whether rising inflation was likely to hinder his party’s efforts to maintain control of Congress in November.
Here’s how it unfolded:

“It’s a great asset,” Biden sarcastically quipped. “More inflation, what a stupid son of a b*tch.”
But unlike in the day of the Trump presidency when the media would take any insult as a direct threat to democracy and the free press, Peter Doocy responded in a much more appropriate way…
He just laughed.
Doocy later appeared on Fox News with Jesse Watters and explained that he couldn’t even hear the president at the time because his aides were shouting at them to get out.
“But somebody came up in the briefing room a few minutes later and said, ‘did you hear what the president said?’” he explained.
Jesse Watters joked that he thought the president was right, and that he is a “stupid SOB!”
It prompted Doocy to quip:
“Yeah, nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it’s not true.”
Compare this to the absolute outrage from the media when former President Donald Trump called biased journalists the enemy of the people.

It turns out that when journalists are being honest, they don’t fear the president.
