Potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is featured on the cover of this week’s People magazine.
Some are criticizing People magazine’s editors for selecting a photo which gives the impression that the former Secretary of State is so weak she had to prop herself up with a walker.
In the photo Hillary, 66, appears to be holding onto to something with both hands, as if to steady herself.
People’s editors were quick to deny the accusations that they intended to make Hillary look weak and thus unfit to run for office.
People magazine provided photographic evidence proving Hillary Clinton was not using a walker during a photoshoot for the cover of the publication’s upcoming issue. The theory Clinton was holding a walker in the picture was first floated by conservative blogger Matt Drudge after the cover photo excerpts of the People article on Clinton were published online Wednesday.
“Secretary Clinton is standing next to a patio chair in the backyard of her home where the photo shoot took place! I have also attached another photo from the shoot – thanks for checking in on this,” Nancy Valentino, a senior vice president of communications at Time Inc., which owns People, wrote to Business Insider in an email.
