During his trip to Florida, President Joe Biden was caught dropping an expletive into a hot mic during a conversation with Mayor Ray Murphy.
Biden was assessing the damage done on Fort Myers beach by Hurricane Ian when he was heard saying “No one f—- with a Biden.” The conversation appeared cordial, and Biden made the comment after Mayor Murphy shook Biden’s hand and told him to “keep the faith.”
The majority of the conversation was inaudible, but some dialogue was picked up.
“You’re goddamn right,” Murphy laughed as he removed his sunglasses.
“And you can’t argue with your brothers outside the house,” Biden added.
Biden was also caught out on a hot mic earlier in the year during a press briefing when he could be heard calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b**ch” after he asked a question about inflation.
Doocy later said Biden reached out to him after the incident and that they had a “nice call.”
Biden praised the work done by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis leading up to, and in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, which has now claimed the lives of over 100 people.
“What the governor has done is pretty remarkable,” Biden said. “Today, we have one job and only one job, and that’s to make sure the people in Florida get everything they need to fully, thoroughly recover. It’s going to take a hell of a long time, hopefully without any snags in the way. Later, after the television cameras have moved on, we’re still going to be here with you.”
