‘Ed Show’ EXCLUSIVE: Biden calls attack on Ann Romney ‘outrageous’

Updated

Vice President Joe Biden called a Democratic consultant’s remark that Ann Romney hadn’t worked a day in her life “an outrageous assertion” in an EXCLUSIVE interview to air tonight on The Ed Show.

Biden joined a chorus of top Democrats in distancing himself from comments made yesterday by Hilary Rosen.

“My response to that is that’s an outrageous assertion,” Biden told msnbc’s Ed Schultz when asked about Rosen’s comments today in Exeter, New Hampshire.

Rosen said last night on CNN that Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, had “never worked a day in her life.”

Surrogates for the Romney campaign pounced quickly and Rosen apologized in a statement this afternoon, pleading with the campaigns to “declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance.”
