White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders took to her kitchen to strike back at Thanksgiving allegations that she faked making a pecan pie, after she tweeted what appeared to be a generic stock photo.
I? dont cook much these days, but managed this Chocolate Pecan Pie for Thanksgiving at the family farm! pic.twitter.com/rO8nFxtly7— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) November 23, 2017
CNN's April Ryan in particular took umbrage with Sanders' pie post, challenging her to "show it to us on a table" with "folks eating it and a pic of you cooking it."
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
While Sanders' full time personal photographer appears to have missed this Martha Stewart moment, Sanders took to Twitter Wednesday night to show haters she's got the chops to bake four Pecan Pies, asking CNN's Ryan "with or without bourbon?"
Sanders then posted a picture of her four pecan pies on a table, wishing the White House press corps a Merry Christmas...
Excited to share these at tomorrow’s press potluck. Merry Christmas to the WH press corps! pic.twitter.com/PKqfHk3nXJ— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) December 14, 2017
Ryan tweeted back to Sanders, saying she "I will check it tomorrow but won't eat it!," adding "I can't wait to see them!"
Okay I want to see the pics and videos. I will check it tomorrow but won’t eat it! https://t.co/5dcXVNzcuC— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) December 14, 2017
