Man, I'd feel really bad for Sarah Huckabee Sanders if she wasn't a straight puppet of the Trump administration. She just messes up so darn much!
Her latest gaffe came when reporters asked her about Oprah running for president, you know, that remote possibility that probably isn't the greatest idea?
Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the mistake of treating Oprah like she's already a candidate, with a platform and policies and everything, clearly forgetting that the woman hasn't even said if she'd run yet!
Remember that time Sarah Huckabee Sanders criticized Congressman Ted Lieu for tweeting too much?
Dear @tedlieu - I don’t serve in Congress, but I can read. If you had read the story, not an incorrect tweet, you w… https://t.co/yEutkswMBp— Kayleigh McEnany (@Kayleigh McEnany)1513717307.0
There was also that time she refused to denounce slavery on national television.

Perhaps the worst Sarah Huckabee Sanders gaffe of all was that time she got into a war with reporters over homemade pie.
Ingredients all mixed up and pies in the oven! @AprilDRyan let me know if you need further documentation #piegate https://t.co/OVYLg1gBgO— Kayleigh McEnany (@Kayleigh McEnany)1513222266.0
This Oprah moment is the best in a while though. When a reporter asks Sanders for her thoughts about the possibility that another D.C. outsider like Oprah running for president, Sanders' response is priceless.

Um, excuse me, but hhhhwhat?Let's take that back, Sarah. You disagree with Oprah on her policies? You have problems with where she stands on a number of positions? Well, I have problems with the positions you just took, Sarah...
Because yes, Oprah did give a kickass speech at the Golden Globes.She spoke eloquently and passionately about the #metoo movement and about her support for all women. What she didn't at all mention were her political leanings or her stance on foreign policy.
In fact, part of why everyone loves Oprah is that we have no real idea what her politics are.Sure, she loved Obama (who didn't?!) and doesn't seem to be too keen on Trump (who is?!), but she's never really been a political figure. We know she likes books — she has a whole club dedicated to them — and cars (giving them away, mainly).
Oh yeah, and bread. She really loves bread. But other than that, Oprah has no policies.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders doesn’t agree with Oprah as far as policy goes on a lot of things... but Oprah hasn’t laid o… https://t.co/iVcrWYPTpq— The Oui’d Man (@The Oui’d Man)1515528507.0
The only policy Oprah spoke boldly about at the Golden Globes was respecting and supporting and lifting up women.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she “greatly disagrees with Oprah policies” ie women’s rights #whitehousebriefing 🤔— 7 0 И Y ⚉ (@7 0 И Y ⚉)1515528849.0
