Did Barack Obama Flip Off Hillary Clinton?
Did Barack Obama intentionally make a one-finger gesture when referring to his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton? Quite possibly, yes.
The evidence is in a video filmed April 17th from a Raleigh, N.C., speech that Obama gave.
"Hillary Clinton, she looked in her element, you know," Obama says right before reaching up and scratching his face with one finger à la Will Smith in "Men in Black." Note the crowd reactions after Obama does it (21 seconds in) and his sly smile afterwards.

Update 17:03. Changed transcript to read "in her element" from "looked irrelevant."
