Video: Biden booed at St. Patrick's Day parade
Vice President Joe Biden often touts his working-class background, but he got the cold shoulder from some St. Patrick's Day celebrants in the state where he was born, as the crowd booed Biden towards the end of a parade in Pittsburgh.
"A chorus of boos rained down on Biden and his supporters down the last stretch; stil, Biden kept smiling," said Brandon Hudson of the local NBC affiliate.
Biden did find plenty of supporters in Pittsburgh. "That was the greatest experience of my life to see him in person like that," one woman in St. Patrick's Day green told NBC.
No interviews with Biden's detractors were featured in the segment.
