Turns out Sarah Huckabee Sanders, despite her best efforts to convince us otherwise, is a human being with a sense of humor, sort of. When she's not calling Donald Trump's accusers liars, refusing to denounce slavery on national TV, or not understanding basic math, she's apparently really into baking pies. Pecan pies, specifically. Or is she???????? The legitimacy of Sarah Huckabee Sanders' supposedly homemade pecan pies is the subject of the latest White House Press Room scandal. They're calling it #piegate and labeling it #fakepies, and it's caused a ruckus all over Twitter.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is embroiled — or should we say embaked — in a scandal that shockingly has nothing to do with Donald Trump.

Instead, it’s about pies.
You might remember that Sanders got in a spot of trouble earlier this year when she posted this picture of a chocolate pecan pie on Twitter:
She claimed to have baked it for Thanksgiving. But look at it. It’s perfect. And it’s on a lily-white background. And it’s perfect. Thus began #piegate.
White House correspondent April D. Ryan was brave enough to call out the press secretary. After all, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a huge liar.
Ryan urged Sanders to post pictures of people eating it and photographic evidence that she actually cooked it. The manufactured controversy was all in good fun, unlike the numerous times Sanders has endangered the American people with her slander.
Sanders replied to Ryan's #fakepie accusations with a promise to make her another one the next week.
What do you think? Is Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ attempt to be likable and human working? Has she convinced you she’s not a horrible monster yet?
Though it took her longer than a week, Sanders finally declared that it was "pie time" on Wednesday.
She tweeted at April Ryan, to whom she’d previously promised a homemade pecan pie. She even asked if Ryan would prefer it with or without bourbon, which we think is a ridiculous question. It’s 2017. Obviously, we need alcohol in any way we can get it.
And folks, this is when #piegate really heated up (to about 350 degrees Fahrenheit)…
