White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has a combative relationship with her press room.
It goes with the territory.
But one of the strangest scuffles that she has gotten into was over a pie. Sanders tweeted an image of a Thanksgiving pie. Reporter April Ryan tweeted back that she believes Sanders faked baking the pie.
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

It was strange.
Sanders hit back Wednesday night, tweeting images of the pies she was baking in a step by step process.

Ending her press briefing Thursday, Sanders stopped at the podium and pointed directly at Ryan and said, “I just want to say thanks, have a good week, and April, I am looking forward to having some pie with you momentarily.”
Sanders was then spotted in the White House press area delivering pies to various correspondents, including Ryan.
