The Drudge Report on Wednesday speculated that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is wearing a wig.

On the top of Drudge’s website, it has a story, titled, “WIGGED OUT: HILLARY GIVES UP HAIR BATTLE.” The link then redirects to Drudge’s personal Twitter account, which features about five tweets only about Clinton’s hair as of Wednesday afternoon. He doesn’t offer any proof she’s wearing a wig.

For years, people have speculated on Clinton’s hair, and she’s turned it into a bit of a joke, as Politico noted in a report months ago. According to a CNN report a few months ago, Clinton addressed speculation on her hair and said does not wear a wig but only colors her hair.

“If anyone wonders if mine is real: The hair is real, the color isn’t. And come to think of it, I wonder if that is true for Donald, too,” Clinton said at the Democratic National Committee’s summer gathering in August, according to CNN.

“All of our presidents come into office looking so vigorous,” Clinton was quoted by Politico as saying. “Then we watch them. They grow grayer and grayer and by the time they leave? They’re as white as the building they live in.”

“Now I may not be the youngest candidate in the race,” Clinton added. “But I have one big advantage: I’ve been coloring my hair for years.” She added, “You’re not going to see me turning white in the White House.”

But other than posting a couple tweets, Drudge doesn’t offer any evidence she’s wearing a wig.

Meanwhile, Clinton has made fun of her hair for years, as far back as in 1995, when she was the first lady.

“We are totally judged by our appearances,” said Melissa Mark-Viverito, the speaker of the New York City Council, told Politico. “These are things that come to mind when you’re getting up and getting dressed — I am going to be criticized. We have to deal with it, and gentlemen don’t. It is a factor, and that is unfortunately something that I recognize.”
