White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is offering a pecan pie to American Urban Radio Network's April Ryan after she questioned last month whether Sanders actually baked a pie featured in a photo she shared on Twitter.


The debate between Ryan and Sanders began on Thanksgiving, when Sanders posted a photo on Twitter of a pecan pie she claimed that she had made for the holiday.


Ryan responded to Sanders's photo by demanding that the press secretary post another photo of the pie on a table to prove that it was, in fact, real. The exchange gave birth to the Twitter hashtag #PieGate.

Sanders then promised to bake a pie for Ryan, who said that she would forego actually tasting the confection because of the White House's adversarial relationship with the press.
