Joe Biden caught calling reporter a ‘stup!d son of a b****’ at news conference [VIDEO]
US President Joe Biden has been caught swearing at a reporter during a news conference after his mic seemed to accidentally pick up his reaction to a question.
The president had been holding the conference following a meeting with the White House Competition Council.
As reporters were being ushered out of the room, Fox News’ White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked Mr Biden: “Will you take questions on inflation then? Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?”
Despite voices in the background being heard saying “no thank you” after the question was put to the president, he responded without realising his microphone was still turned on.
“That’s a great asset – more inflation. What a stupid son of a b****,” the president said.
After the blunder, his mic was quickly turned off and Mr Biden looked quite surprised as he appeared to notice his mistake.
