Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh on Monday suggested that presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton had staged a Humans of New York posting involving a gay teen.

The photo posted on the popular photoblog's social media accounts shows a teary-eyed young boy sitting on a stoop.

“I'm homosexual,” reads the caption. “I'm afraid about what my future will be and that people won't like me.”

Clinton was among the thousands to respond.

“Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing,” Clinton wrote. “You will surprise yourself with what you're capable of and the incredible things you go on to do. Find the people who love and believe in you – there will be lots of them. – H.”

Limbaugh told listeners that the message is probably a “phony” political ploy.

“Where the Clintons are concerned, there are no coincidences with the Clintons. There just aren't any. And I feel very confident and safe speculating that this whole thing is as phony as it gets,” he said.

“We're supposed to believe a photographer walking the streets of New York City sees this kid crying on his stoop then takes his picture? And then the kid says this to the photographer 'I'm crying about my future because I'm gay and I'm really worried about my future and I don't think I'm going to be loved and it's going to be really hard out there.' The kid looks like he's 8 or 9. You know who the kid looks like? The kid looks like the kid that was in the gay pride parade last week – picture showed his mom proudly had him out there dressed up in some kind of rainbow colored drag queen get-up with a Roman crown of whatever on his head. This kid looks exactly like that kid. I'm not saying its the same kid. I'm just saying that's what this 8-year-old looks like.”

“Anyway, its just a little too convenient,” he added.
