Skip to comments.Sarah Huckabee Sanders Ends 'Piegate'; Gives April Ryan a Homemade Pie

it turns out the
cake pie isn't a lie after all.
After being accused of using a stock photo of a pecan pie by journalist April Ryan (in what was dubbed "piegate" and likely resulted in Ryan not being invited to the White House Christmas party), Sanders proved once and for all that yes, she can actually bake. Pretty well, as it turns out.
In case you missed it, here was the original exchange, where Ryan insisted that the pie Sanders tweeted was not made by her.
Show it to us on a table. https://t.co/ifeSBlSZW7— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) November 24, 2017
In the spirit of Christmas, and for a White House Christmas potluck party, Sanders baked four pies for members of the press. In a thread of tweets, Sanders posted images of the process of baking the pies, being sure to tag Ryan in the tweets.

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
But there's a happy ending: Ryan received one of the pies, and "Piegate" is now, finally, over.

It was a wonderful reset gesture from the @PressSec to bake 4 pretty pies for us. We are building for better on all sides. Watch the video! https://t.co/FEQtsjdHGl— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) December 14, 2017
Merry Christmas, everyone.
Should have made it a chocolate pie.
Doesn’t change the fact that April Ryan is a huge a-hole.
like ‘The Help’?
April Ryan is such a douche bag. Sarah is in the Christmas spirit to give April the pie. I have to give Sarah credit for that.
Just like the pie made in "The Help"
The long national nightmare is finally over.
Which, given the way April has treated Omarosa, April did NOT deserve!!!
But good on Sarah, because April has been way too nasty on this point.
How do you say that in Russian? Just wondering.
Now Now, a chocolate pie they would have called racist..after all its Chocolate
Sarah is a CLASS ACT always has been..she showed April more class than I would have considering what a total b*tch April has treated her
I was hoping it was a whipped cream “pie”....to the face.
Should have made it a cow-pie.
It shows Sarah has class.
Yuk. I can't stand having chocolate in a pecan pie, or any other pie, for that matter.
She is so on top of every question and remark. I love watching her run the briefings.
I just wish that I liked pecans...
