If someone I was in a feud with extended an olive branch to me in the form of an ice cream social, I’d drop any arguments I have with them right then and there.
Dippin’ Dots is definitely trying to capitalize on that logic right now.
The ice cream brand is offering to throw an ice cream social for the White House following the uncovering of some unsavory tweets from White House Press Secretary/Communications Director Sean Spicer. Apparently, Spicer is NOT a fan of the company at all, as his tweets have been putting the ice cream company on blast for nearly 7 years.
we may not have inauguration attendance data yet, but one set of record turnout numbers are in:

According to NPR, these tweets were uncovered by the internet following a series of clashes with reporters at press briefings, and it’s led to some hilarious reactions. Someone even created a campaign to send the press secretary Dippin’ Dots in an effort to “give back to the administration the petty nonsense we’ve been receiving.”
When Dippin’ Dots found out about the tweets, they decided to respond with a peace offering rather than clap back at the White House. Subsequently, they drafted an open letter to Sean Spicer that invited him and the White House to an ice cream social:
“We can even afford to treat the White House and press corps to an ice cream social. What do you say? We’ll make sure there’s plenty of all your favorite flavors.”
Turns out that Sean Spicer has recently responded to the open letter, and is inviting Dippin’ Dots to put on their social — for a different cause:
Sorry for the delay How about we do something great for the those who have served out nation & 1st responders https://t.co/G9BPmVAXKS

That’s a great and classy idea, Secretary Spicer. Ice cream for first responders, the military, and vets? I’m totally down with that concept.
I’m sure that Dippin’ Dots won’t run out of vanilla this time.
