Sean Spicer and Piers Morgan faced off on Good Morning Britain and the results were hilarious .
The former White House Press Secretary joined Morgan on his show to address the hot topic of the day : Oprah’s Golden Globes speech and rumors of a potential presidential run.
Spicer, in an apparent momentary bout of amnesia, claimed that it would be difficult for a “political outsider” to break in, win, and figure things out.
Piers Morgan shouted over Spicer to try to get through his skull and remind him that that’s exactly the profile of the “political outsider” he used to work for. Watch the exchange/shouting match here.
Spicer does try to recover from the claim that Oprah could never make it because she doesn’t know how to do politics by saying that his old boss seems to have changed the game by having the exact same problem and winning anyway.
Spicer hedges his bets, speculating that if Oprah did run, she’d give Trump “a run for his money,” but that he’d definitely beat her. Given the popularity of the #Oprah2020 trend on Twitter following her speech, it seems like Spicer shouldn’t be too sure of that.
Piers Morgan, for his part, managed to let the whole thing devolve into a screaming match, which is something a President Oprah would have never allowed to happen on her show.
Oprah spurred rumors of a potential presidential bid after fans took to the internet to encourage it following her rousing speech at the Golden Globes. No word yet from Trump on whether he’s weighing in on this one.
