UPDATE posted at 9:55 p.m. EST:

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy told Sean Hannity that President Biden called his cell phone and said, "It's nothing personal pal."

Doocy said that he told the president that he will always attempt to ask questions that are different than what others are asking, and that Biden replied, "You've got to."

Original story below:

President Joe Biden called Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy "a stupid son of a b***h" on Monday.

Biden uttered the profanity after Doocy asked whether the president believes inflation represents a political liability prior to the upcoming 2022 midterm elections.

Biden responded saying that it is "a great asset — more inflation," before adding, "What a stupid son of a b***h."

Later on Fox News Channel's "The Five," when conservative commentator Jesse Waters jokingly told Doocy that he believes Biden was correct, Doocy responded by jokingly saying that no one had fact checked the president to call the comment false.

"Very presidential," GOP Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri tweeted about the president's remark.

"Classless," Stephen Gutowski tweeted.

"Well, at least with Trump gone, we won't have a president who hurls foul-mouthed, norm-breaking insults at the brave, indispensable White House reporters who are the only bulwark standing between us and democracy dying in darkness," tweeted Dan McLaughlin of National Review.

Americans have been suffering from the devastating economic consequences of rising inflation as prices have soared over the past year. Consumer price index data released earlier this month showed a whopping 7% increase over a one-year period.

"The all items index rose 7.0 percent for the 12 months ending December, the largest 12-month increase since the period ending June 1982," the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. "The all items less food and energy index rose 5.5 percent, the largest 12-month change since the period ending February 1991. The energy index rose 29.3 percent over the last year, and the food index increased 6.3 percent."
