Speaking with colleague Don Lemon on CNN, Jim Acosta quipped that he, like Peter Doocy was also attacked by Trump but “never got an apology.”
“Today we had the president of the United States refer to a reporter as an SOB,” Acosta told Lemon. “Ya know, you and I got called a lot worse back in the day. We never got an apology. I don’t remember that from the commander in chief. So maybe things are a little bit better to some extent.”

“Will you take a question on inflation?” Doocy asked Biden Monday.
“Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?” he added.
“No, it’s a great asset,” Biden replied, adding mockingly, “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”
