Joe Biden is playing dumb again.
Reports surfaced this week about how many White House staffers will benefit from the student loan forgiveness plan.
According to Joe Biden, he had no prior knowledge of White House staff that would benefit, which, of course, is a lie.
When student loan forgiveness started to be discussed, this story was making headlines.
Numerous outlets had looked into the staff to determine how many current White House and congressional staffers would benefit.
A reporter hit Biden on the Republicans challenging his EO, and he responded, "They have a right to do that. Do you have a student loan?"
The reporter said, "no," then added, "I bet a lot of your staff does."
Biden responded, "They may.
"No one has told me they have."
That is 100 percent a blatant lie, as numerous outlets have reported that millions of dollars in student loans are held by White House staffers.
The Office of Government Ethics shows 30 people on Biden's staff that owe more than $10,000 in loans.
Almost 20 percent of the overall staff hold student loans that collectively add up to nearly $5 million.
The first story on this subject went out in May, three months before Biden's order.
For him to say he is not aware of that, well, just add it to the stack of lies Biden has told since taking office.
