CNN reporter Jim Acosta has claimed that, because he "stood up" to President Donald Trump, he still has “marks” on his back.

WATCH:

Acosta made the remarks to Don Lemon while discussing Joe Biden's cursing at Fox News reporter Peter Doocy after a question on inflation.

Biden muttered “son of a b***h” at Doocy, which was caught on a hot mic.

“As someone who witnessed the unraveling of our democracy, had a front-row seat to it … is it better? Worse?” Lemon asked.

“Can we turn this around in your estimation? You were the White House correspondent for the entire Trump reign,” Lemon continued.

Acosta replied:

“Yeah. And I’ve got the marks on my back to prove it, Don.”

“To some extent things are better.

"I mean, today we had the president of the United States refer to a reporter as an SOB,” he added.

“You know, Don, you and I got called a lot worse back in the day,” Acosta said.

'You know, Don, you and I got called a lot worse back in the day,' Acosta said.

“We never got an apology. I don’t remember that from the commander-in-chief,” he added.

“So maybe things are a little bit better to some extent.”

According to reports, Biden later called Doocy to apologize over the insult, stating, “It’s nothing personal pal.”

WATCH:

Doocy later laughed off the insult from Biden.

“Reporters at other networks, if it happened to them, would be screaming about threats to democracy and how by God he’s a reporter and the First Amendment is under attack,” tweeted radio talk show host Erick Erickson.

“Be like Peter Doocey, not Jim Acosta.”
