On Thanksgiving, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted out what she probably thought would be a nice, relatable photo of a chocolate pecan pie she claimed to have baked. Instead, she was promptly roasted by the internet because it looked like she had just posted a shoddy stock image of a pie.
I️ dont cook much these days, but managed this Chocolate Pecan Pie for Thanksgiving at the family farm!

Sanders even tagged White House reporter April Ryan in some of the tweets, after Ryan joined in the fun and mocked the pie the first time around.
It’s pie time! With or without bourbon ?

Update, 3:45 p.m.: Sanders personally presented Ryan with a pie and, after an awkward exchange, asked her to say something nice to her father. “Hello Papa Huckabee,” Ryan said. “I got a pie in my hand but I’m not gonna eat it but I’m thankful.”
