"Today we had the president of the United States refer to a reporter as an SOB," Acosta said on the network on Monday night. "Ya know, Don [Lemon] 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." 

Acosta, who covered Trump's White House for CNN and has since taken a job anchoring a weekend show on the network, was referring to an outburst from Biden directed at Doocy during an event earlier in the day.
