Yeah, the original response set off my bullshit alarms. Standard protocol when someone posts a stock photo as their own? Reverse image search. It’ll exist somewhere if they stole it. If you can’t provide that, then it’s probably real, it just looks stupid or staged or whatever. When that guy’s response amounted to “Look at all of these other stock photos I found,” it didn’t really carry the same weight.
I’d like to believe that Sarah Sanders spends all of her free time doing something less humanizing, like kicking puppies or draining foreigners of their life force, but in this case it seems like she actually did* make a pie, take a weirdly lit picture of it at a bad angle, and post it to Twitter. As middle-aged women do.
*I personally think the pie is real, but she didn’t make it. Store-bought, maybe, or something made for her, but we’ll never know one way or the other. There’s plenty wrong with her to prioritize more highly than her pie-making skills or the lack thereof.
