The Drudge Report tried to stir up more wild speculation about Hillary Clinton’s health on Wednesday by suggesting the former secretary of state was pictured pushing a walker in her People Magazine appearance.

The conservative news site tweeted a link to Clinton’s forthcoming People cover, in which she is standing in front of a pool and holding onto what appears to be a patio chair:

Dennis Brack, a former White House photographer, told the Wall Street Journal that having Clinton lean forward would make for a “more active type of pose” and said “chances are that a chair was handy.” The Journal also confirmed with People’s editorial director that Clinton was indeed photographed next to a patio chair.

The Drudge Report has recently run similar items suggesting that Clinton is aging, including photoshopping the former secretary of state’s head onto an oil painting of a wrinkly woman.

Correction: This post has been updated to reflect that Dennis Brack did not photograph Hillary Clinton for People Magazine.
