Drudge Stunned His Readers With Pic of Hillary Being Helped up Stairs. Just One Problem.

The Drudge Report on Sunday trumpeted (pun intended) a story about Hillary Clinton needing assistance walking up the stairs, presumably by aides or Secret Service agents.

There’s just one problem: the “breaking news” occurred six months ago.

No problem for Drudge, however, who conservatives and others have criticized for months over its perceived pro-Trump bias.

Drudge laid out a timeline of Hillary’s mishaps, including a snarky reference to the six-month-old “news”:

  • 2009: Falls going to the White House, broken elbow
  • 2011: Falls boarding plane
  • 2012: Falls at home, blood clot
  • 2016: Hillary conquers to stairs

The banner story ran for hours:

Brian Stelter, host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” and others picked up on the images, which began appearing in social media on Friday:

The story first appeared on The American Mirror on Saturday, under the headline: “Shock Photo: Multiple staffers help unstable Hillary up stairs.”

As reported by Mediaite, the original image caption reads, in part:

Hillary Clinton visits the non-profit SC Strong, a 2-year residential facility that helps former felons, substance abusers, and homeless move into self-sufficiency February 24, 2016 in North Charleston.

Nonetheless, Hillary’s detractors had a field day. A few examples:


In related news, Donald Trump continued his onslaught against Hillary on Friday, calling her “unhinged” and “unstable.” Coincidence, Drudge?
