Back in November, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shared a photo of the Thanksgiving pie she made on Twitter. The problem? It looked a lot like a generic stock photo of a pie...
And social media users, including CNN reporter April Ryan, were quick to call her out on it. Pie Gate was born.
I am not trying to be funny but folks are already saying #piegate and #fakepie Show it to us on the table with folks eating it and a pic of you cooking it. I am getting the biggest laugh out of this. I am thankful for this laugh on Black Friday! https://t.co/ifeSBlSZW7— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) November 24, 2017
Fast forward a month, and Sarah Sanders is adamant to prove critics wrong. How? Last night, she live tweeted herself making a pie...
Is that the end of Pie Gate? It appears so. The next day, Sanders brought the pies to the White House and handed them out to reporters.
This has been such an interesting week. Today is #piegate pt 2. I am going to see @PressSec pies. Can’t wait! Oh what joy and bliss! I will send you guys pics & video. As I said to @PressSec she may be able to burn in the kitchen but I won’t be eating. Burn is a good thing!— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) December 14, 2017
Ryan ended up keeping one the pies.
Though some people still weren't convinced.
It's over, people.
