WASHINGTON (Reuters), – U.S. Vice President Joe Biden was seen cursing a Fox News reporter during a White House event Monday. The journalist had asked the president about rising inflation’s impact on the upcoming congressional elections.

Peter Doocy (a White House correspondent who Biden frequently spars with), asked whether it was OK to inquire about inflation or if this was a political problem as journalists were being ushered from a Meeting of Biden’s Competition Council.

Biden replied sarcastically, “That’s great asset, more inflation,” he said over the roar of journalists shouting questions. He apparently didn’t realize that his microphone was still on. He continued, “What a dumb son of a bitch,”

The December solid increase in U.S. consumer price inflation resulted in the biggest annual inflation rise in almost four decades.

Fox and the White House did not respond immediately to our request for comment.

Biden was elected to office one year ago and pledged that he would not tolerate any form of incivility from his staff.

Biden said to political appointees that if you ever work with me, and you see another colleague treat with disrespect, you should talk it down. Biden stated at that time, “Everybody has the right and obligation to be treated with dignity”

Biden’s predecessor, Republican Donald Trump infamously attacked journalists at rallies, news conferences and to the delights of many of those who supported him.

Doocy is a veteran reporter covering Biden. The president often calls Doocy at events and asks skeptical questions. Fox News, a conservative-leaning network, has been harsh about Biden’s presidency as well as Democrats.
