Drudge Wonders if Hillary Clinton Used a Walker on People Magazine Cover

Oh, Drudge, you magnificent bastard. There are very few right-wing trolls who are better than Matt Drudge at manufacturing an odious whisper campaign, and he didn’t disappoint today. Drudge posted the new People Magazine cover featuring Hillary Clinton, then wondered whether she was holding onto, wait for it, a walker. You know, like an old lady with brain damage. Wink, wink.

Of course he didn’t say it outright. He used the nefarious “Cavuto Mark” — a question mark at the end of a deliberately leading statement, made famous by Fox News Channel.

To any sane observer, that’s a deck chair. To a crackpot troll, it’s a walker. Drudge is the latter.

What a dick. But he’s knows that in the age of social media, a lie travels around the world at hyperspeed before the truth gets its pants on. So in the worst way possible, well played, Matt.
