On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, he talks about President Joe Biden’s harsh words heard over the microphone. His comments were directed at a Fox journalist during a press conference at the White House.
“After a year of holding his tongue in the face of criticism last night, he expressed his true feelings about Fox news, white house correspondent and winner of the blandest blonde man and blandest bland man awards–Sir Peter Ducey.”
Ducey is a Fox news correspondent who attended a meeting with the administration to discuss inflation in America. During the press conference, Ducey asked the President, “Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?” To which Joe Biden responded by calling the man a “stupid son-of-a-B….”
“That’s right. Oh, Joey’s back. I’ve reached peak old man. Given zero malarkey,” said Colbert who seems to be a huge fan of the President’s reaction.
The correspondent went on record stating that he received an apology within an hour of the exchange to which he was told, “it’s nothing personal.”
The host jokes about Paul Ducey’s father and how he’s connected to the situation.
“It’s never appropriate for a president of the United States to have a potty mouth, but it’s especially egregious to call Peter Ducey, the son of a B—-. We did some fact checking and he’s actually the son of Fox and Friends host Steve Ducey. If anything, he’s the son of a Duce.”
