BIDEN SEEKS TO CLEAR AIR WITH REPORTER
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden has tried to tamp down the verbal firestorm he's lit. During a press event at the White House yesterday, Biden called Fox reporter Peter Doocy a "stupid son of a bitch" after Doocy asked a question about inflation as journalists left an East Room event. The president's comments were captured on video and by the microphone in front of him. There's been no response from the White House on the dustup. But Doocy says Biden did call him afterward to extend an olive branch. He says Biden told him, "It's nothing personal, pal."
