Journalists are on to a new scandal that is “baking” in the Trump administration thanks to April Ryan. However, this one doesn’t involve Russia, North Korea, or even sexual assault. Some might even say that it is much more flavorful and perhaps juicier than those stories.
While Americans were gobbling up turkey and enjoying Black Friday sales, left-wing media was on another mission. They were hot on the trail of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her homemade pecan pie. She shared a picture of her Thanksgiving dessert on social media and that’s when the fight started.
Now, it is no surprise that progressives would attack Sanders, due to her closeness to President Trump. But one would expect a senior member of the White House Press Corps, like Ryan, to be a little more prudent. Of course, given how much their group hates the president, that expectation is unrealistic.
Ryan, the Washington bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks and CNN analyst, responded to Sanders’ tweet saying, “show it to us on the table.” Sanders fired back saying she would make her a pie. “Don’t worry @AprilDRyan because I’m nice I’ll bake one for you next week #RealPie #FakeNews,” she wrote.
Their exchange eventually led to social media hashtags, a trend Ryan was happy to take credit for. “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,” she tweeted.
Suffice it to say, this is a perfect example of why President Trump was elected. North Korea and Iran are, right now, plotting ways to destroy the United States. Congress is spending millions of taxpayer dollars to cover-up sexual harassment claims. And yet, all mainstream media is worried about is a pecan pie.
Just another example of how taking the presidency was a piece of cake for Donald Trump.
