- Biden was once famously caught on a hot mic as vice president calling the passing of Obamacare a ‘big f***ing deal’
Presidents- they’re just like us.
President Biden, ever the perfect gentleman in public, shocks those around him with his potty mouth behind closed doors, though the 78-year-old typically apologizes if women are in earshot.
In meetings with aides, the president’s colorful language often includes ‘F*** them,’ ‘What the f*** are we doing?’ ‘Why the f*** isn’t this happening?’ ‘bulls***,’ ‘dammit,’ or just simply: ‘f***,’ senior White House aides told Politico.
Once caught on a hot mic as vice president calling the passing of Obamacare a ‘big f***ing deal,’ the president said during a CNN town hall Thursday night that passing his Build Back Better agenda was a ‘bigger darn deal.’
To get straight-talk from his aides, the president often tells them: ‘don’t bulls*** a bulls***ter.’
‘When he gets going he definitely gets going,’ said one White House official.
‘When he cusses around women, it is always, and I mean always, followed by an immediate apology,’ one source told Politico.

‘He’s from a different generation but if there’s people that are younger than him, especially women, he feels like, ‘Hey, how would I feel if I was cussing around my daughter or my granddaughter?’ said another former aide. ‘You don’t cuss in front of women and children,’ the person said.
Aides made sure to point out that Biden shies away from sexual profanities, noting that he does not use the f-word as a verb.
The president is ‘ way too prudish for that,’ one former aide said.
Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris’ favorite curse word is ‘motherf***ah,’ which she alluded to in an interview with NowThis.
‘What’s your favorite curse word?’ NowThis asked the VP in 2019 while she was still running for president. ‘I can’t say it,’ she replied, ‘It starts with ‘M’ and ends with ‘ah.”
‘Not -er,’ Harris underscored.
Dirty words are nothing new to the White House.
President Obama in 2012 called Mitt Romney a ‘bulls***ter’ in a Rolling Stone interview. He famously called Kanye West a ‘Jacka***.’
Romney, a devout Mormon, did not return the tough talk.
Former President George W. Bush, was caught on hot mic calling former New York Times journalist Adam Clymer a ‘major league a**hole’ in 2000.
None had such a reputation for profanity as Lyndon Johnson. LBJ, famous for consulting with aides as he sat on the toilet with the door open, is reported to have said of a Richard Nixon speech one time: ‘Boys, I may not know much, but I know the difference between chicken shit and chicken salad.’
