This would be the clash of titans
– Sean Spicer gives his verdict on a possible Trump vs Oprah presidency scenario
Following claims that Oprah Winfrey should run for President, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer clashed with Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid this morning after suggesting she doesn’t have enough political experience to win.
Spicer said: “She doesn’t have the political infrastructure and we’ve seen this before in our history where people who have tried to pop in that are not in politics who have had a difficult time adjusting…”.
Interrupted by flabbergasted GMB host Piers Morgan, who reminded Spicer of Trump’s own past lack of political experience, Spicer continued: "Clearly President Donald Trump proves there is an appetite for outsiders and you don’t necessarily have to have that. The question is was that an anomaly or is that the new norm?"
He later added: “I think if an Oprah Winfrey jumped in, I think it would be on the other side of the political aisle, that would be the test of that.
“She’s extremely impressive… I think that you can’t make this stuff up. This would be the clash of titans. Hands down Donald Trump [would win] but I think Oprah would give him a run for his money.”
