Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke to a gaggle of reporters Thursday afternoon outside a diner in Detroit, Michigan, following his participation in the second round of Democratic presidential primary debates in the city Wednesday evening.
He expressed surprise that the other candidates at last night's debate had so much criticism for former President Obama and his signature legislative achievement, Obamacare. Biden said Obama had nothing to apologize for and called it "bizarre" to see the "degree of the criticism" against the former president.
"I was a little surprised at how much incoming there was about Barack, about the president ... I’m proud of having served with him. I’m proud of the job he did. I don’t think there's anything he has to apologize for and it surprised me, the degree of criticism," Biden said.
Biden also defended Obama's record on immigration saying, "the idea that somehow it's comparable to what this guy [Trump] has done is absolutely bizarre."
