On Monday, Joe Biden called reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a bitch,” but while running for office he insisted that he would fire anyone who disrespected other people.
When he came to office, Joe Biden pretended that he was a kinder, gentler, more grownup person than his opponent, Donald Trump. Trump was blasted by leftists for being mean to people, and Biden wanted to act as if he would never stoop to name calling — even though he constantly called Donald Trump names during the campaign.
Indeed, early on, Biden warned staffers and White House employees that they would be “fired on the spot” for disrespecting others.
Per Breitbart News:
As it turns out, the man who promised to restore civility in the White House has violated his own rule. In 2021, when swearing-in dozens of appointees and staffers upon his inauguration, the president said, “I will fire you on the spot” for treating others with disrespect.
“I’m not joking when I say this, if you are ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you, I will fire you on the spot,” he said.
“Everyone, every single person, regardless of their background, is entitled to be treated with dignity,” Biden added. “I expect you to do that for all the folks you deal with.”
Biden further emphasized that he works for the people and not the other way around.
“People don’t work for us, we work for the people,” Biden said. “I work for the people. They pay my salary. They pay your salary.”
This week, though, Biden called reporter Doocy a “son of a bitch” merely for simply asking a question about economic policy.

Biden later made it worse with a non-apology to Doocy. Biden called Doocy on the phone and said, “it is nothing personal, pal.”
That is just as insulting as calling him a stupid son of a bitch.
