Joe Biden apologized after he called a conservative White House correspondent a “son of a bitch.” During an interview on Monday, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confirmed Biden called him to apologize, saying the President told him it was nothing personal.

Biden was caught on a hot mic earlier in the day calling Doocy the name after he tried to ask Biden a question about record high inflation in the U.S.
