CNN’s Ryan suggests Huckabee Sanders would poison her with pie, liberal conspiracy theory gets destroyed

This is CNN… On Friday, the Daily Caller reported that CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan suggested — without any evidence whatsoever — that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t actually cook a pecan pie Sanders said she did.  After offering to make her a pie, Ryan suggested Sanders might poison her.

Moreover, the Trump-hating Democrat-media complex actually concocted an entire crazy conspiracy theory around the pie, but Gizmodo shredded that as well.

Here’s the tweet that started the whole brouhaha:

“Show it to us on a table,” Ryan said.

She added: “I am not trying to be funny but folks are already saying and 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!”

Sanders responded by offering to make Ryan a pie as well:

That’s when Ryan suggested that Sanders might sabotage the pie since the White House doesn’t like the press:

The Daily Caller said Ryan wasn’t the only alleged “journalist” to push the evidence-free claim that Sanders did not bake the pie in question, adding:

The New York Daily News wrote an article entitled, “No one believes that Sarah Huckabee Sanders baked this piece.” The piece cited Ryan and noted pecan pie experts “@dumptrump33” and “NotMyPresident” as evidence.

Gizmodo, however, stepped in to correct the ignorant far-left “reporters.”

According to Gizmodo:

The amateur sleuths of Twitter thought that they had uncovered a Thanksgiving conspiracy today, claiming that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stole a photo of a pie from PBS and posted it as her own. Did Sanders lie about her pie? No. And we’ll show you why.

The origin of this bizarre conspiracy theory seems to have started with random Twitter users before being taken up by journalist and author Victoria Namkung who posted a link to what she claimed was the original photo. Namkung seemed to believe that the “PBS” in the domain name of the photo she posted meant that Sanders had stolen the photo from the public broadcaster.

But, Gizmodo said, “pbs.twimg.com is just a subdomain that Twitter uses to host photos. It has absolutely nothing to do with the Public Broadcasting Service. The best evidence that Sanders is the original creator of the photo? If you do a reverse image search, it’s clear that Sanders was the first person to post that image to the internet.”

Namkung deleted her original tweet about PBS but still insisted that Sanders didn’t bake the pie, and provided no evidence whatsoever of her claim, Gizmodo added.

“Other Twitter users finally set her straight and she deleted all her tweets accusing Sanders of stealing the photo,” the article said.

But Gizmodo didn’t let Sanders off the hook:

Sarah Huckabee Sanders lies pretty much on a daily basis for President Trump. But she didn’t lie about her pecan pie. The internet is a strange place filled with conspiracy theories about any number of things. But when you start accusing people of faking their pie photos, much like the dumb theory around Koigate, it’s maybe time to take a step back and remember that even liars tell the truth sometimes.

Of course, Gizmodo didn’t offer any evidence to back up the claim that Sanders on a daily basis.

This, by the way, is the modern left, and this is what’s “informing” us about “news” of the day.
