The good news for Sarah Huckabee Sanders is that when she stood in for Sean Spicer during today’s White House Press Briefing, she didn’t accidentally give out her own password. But that was the closest thing she had to a highlight, as she totally blew it in her attempt at making Donald Trump’s attack on the Mayor of London less of a story. Instead she made it even worse.

Huckabee Sanders insisted that “POTUS has been extremely clear that we stand in complete solidarity with the UK,” just as Donald Trump was tweeting “Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his “no reason to be alarmed” statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!” Sanders seemed unenthused and more defensive than in her previous briefings.

That’s because the job of lying on Donald Trump’s behalf wears you down. We all saw Spicer go from assertive liar on day one to the overly timid liar he’s now become, all too aware that he has to make a fool in the eyes of reporters and the public in order to look good in the eyes of Trump himself. Kellyanne Conway suffered the same fate in her role, starting off as a supremely confident liar on Trump’s behalf, before she too got worn down by it.

And so by the time Sarah Huckabee Sanders got around to saying something as ridiculously dishonest as “I don’t see that the president is picking a fight with the Mayor of London at all,” you the sense that maybe Sean Spicer wasn’t so uniquely bad at this after all. Perhaps it simply isn’t possible for anyone to do the job well when it consists of waiting for Trump to say embarrassing things and then trying to argue that he never said those things.
