Early this week Fox News reporter Peter Doocy annoyed President Biden with a question about inflation and its possible effect on the Democrats in the November midterm elections. As a matter of fact, the question annoyed Biden so much that he called Doocy a “stupid son of a b*tch.”
Everybody knows that if Trump snapped at a reporter they’d write an entire book about how it’s a threat to democracy and the First Amendment (as a matter of fact, CNN’s Jim Acosta did just that). Now, however, a Democrat is in the White House and the rules have apparently changed:
The spectacle of President Biden lobbing an unintentionally amplified expletive at a reporter from Fox News turned out to be one of the most unlikely feel-good moments of his time in office, our media correspondent writes. https://t.co/keU4cyjE6k

The media couldn’t be more predictable if they tried.

Many in the replies who would have otherwise said that the very fabric of our nation is being destroyed if Trump said that to Jim Acosta are instead cheering for Biden. The “rules” have changed for some reason.
And there you have it! Dems can be horrible people and that creates “feel-good” moments for their people. The ppl were just lying when they made complaints about Trump’s doctored image —they actually liked it. I’m so happy they’re finally being honest w/ themselves. It’s a start! https://t.co/rsbOfmHy4y

When there’s a Republican back in the White House the media can return to being triggered by a president slamming the media. Until then they’ll be all “thank you sir, may I have another!?”
