Critics of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign are spreading a photo they say questions her physical fitness to be president. And the image has a South Carolina connection.
A photo posted to the Drudge Report this week purportedly shows an "unstable" Clinton being helped up a flight of stairs. But there's more to the photo, which was taken in South Carolina back during February's Democratic primary.
The Washington Post reports the photo – which originally appeared on the American Mirror under the headline “Multiple staffers help unstable Hillary up stairs” – was originally published by Getty Images during a campaign stop in South Carolina. The original caption read that Clinton had been steadied by aides after slipping on the stairs.
The original post – picked up by Drudge and shared several times on social media – used the photo as evidence Clinton’s “questionable health condition” is an “ongoing issue” in the campaign.
