I know what you’re thinking: “Gasp! You can’t go around calling President Biden a stupid son of a bitch!”
Yes I can, but I’m not talking about Biden. I’m talking about what Biden said when reporter Peter Doocy had the unmitigated gall to ask Biden a question that wasn’t on the list of allowed questions: “Do you think inflation is a political liability?”
Biden’s unintended hot mike response: “What a stupid son of a bitch!”
Doocy’s producer later Tweeted that Biden had called Doocy to “apologize”: “It’s nothing personal, pal.”
Doocy replied with a quote from Captain America: The Winter Soldier: A dozen guys attack Captain America in an elevator; the last one standing says, “Nothing personal, Cap!”
Captain America knocks him out and tosses him on the pile of 11 other unconscious attackers.
“It kinda feels personal,” Captain America says.
Doocy didn’t say that, alas. But I can dream, can’t I?
