Sean Spicer has been making the rounds lately to hype The Briefing, his hilariously inept new book about his time with the Trump administration. While he’s largely been handled with kid gloves by the American media he used to rail against, this week Spicer learned that things are sometimes a little bit different across the pond, where the BBC’s Emily Maitlis did not hold back in pointing out that he’s a bad man who did bad things in the service of an even worse person.

“You played with the truth. You lead us down a dangerous path. You have corrupted discourse for the entire world by going along with these lies,” Maitlis told a stammering Spicer at one point.

“This is the office of the president spouting lies or half-truths, or knocking down real truths, and you were his agent for those months,” she added a few moments later.

“I gave him the best advice and counsel that I could in private,” Spicer responded, as if to say that lying in public and then allegedly attempting to halfheartedly right the ship behind closed doors are remotely comparable.
