Many modern presidents have distanced themselves from Justice Department operations that have political connotations.
So, in this case, the White House noted that Biden heard about the search warrant the same way the rest of the nation did: from the media.
However, people on social media didn't hesitate to point out Eric's comments, which appeared to admit that wasn't the case for the Trumpian White House.
One person on Twitter wrote: "Partly thanks to Glasser and Baker, we know tons of things can happen without [the] president's approval. Like peaceful resolution to [the] Lafayette Square crisis. Thank goodness our officers are able to disobey illegal orders like Trump's."
"Every accusation is a confession," another added.
A third wrote: "So unintentionally telling. Ya see, gumbo, that's how it worked in the White House when ya dad, Cheeto Jaba, gurgled and slothed and lounged his way thru the place. This is not, in fact, how it works in a normal White House."
