Mike Huckabee Points Out Ridiculousness of Media ‘PieGate’

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee busted the media’s chops over their ridiculous scrutiny of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and a pie she baked.

Sanders made a chocolate pecan pie and posted a photo of it on Twitter with the caption: “I dont cook much these days, but managed this Chocolate Pecan Pie for Thanksgiving at the family farm!”

To which the petty American Urban Radio Networks correspondent April Ryan responded to Sanders with a snide remark that she should “show [the pie] to us on a table.”

Which leads you to believe that Ryan does not believe Sanders actually baked the pie but rather grabbed an internet photo.

Huckabee retorted that he would be savoring “that very pie” at Christmas time. He said, “Don’t ever — don’t ever mess with a Southern woman and her homemade pies.”

Fox News Insider reports: 

He said the incident showed how “ridiculous” the news coverage of the Trump White House has become.

“I hope Sarah bakes a pie and serves it to the press corps,” he said, adding that the incident deserves an utterance of the Southern statement, “bless your heart.”

Bless her heart indeed. Who on earth makes a deal out of pie??
