Skip to comments.Is Obama Giving Hillary the Finger Here?

Im sure no one can pin-point this down as a certainty, but doesnt it look like there is a pause for dramatic effect. His finger goes up right after he says that Hillary was in her element. There is also a cheer immediately after it. The video has been making the rounds of some pro-Hillary leftwing blogs, and on one hand its convincing. On the other, I'm unsure. I was hoping Freepers could help me determine.
Check out the video.

It seems certain that the women sitting behind him (on his right) thought so.
The first time I noticed this gesture was Will Smith giving it to Tommy Lee Jones in the movie Men In Black. I’ve been using it since. :)
No doubt. You scratch your nose with your index finger, not your social finger.
Is there footage out there of him scratching with his middle finger on other occasions? Maybe its just something he does.
Or maybe not.
No question about it. Watched it a couple of times. When one takes into account his words and the timing, that was no simple face scratch. Obama clearly flipped Hillary the bird.
He certainly sat in the Wright pew for this to be the case. After buying into (and underwriting) that trash for 20 years, how could you NOT have pent-up racist hatred just waiting to surface?
I updated the post now. After seeing the video from another angle I determined it is manufactured controversy...however easy to see why people would think what they did. The other angle shows that he was actually using two fingers at the questioned point. I appreciate everyone’s help.
Well, he got it from Will Smith.
Will used the same technique to flip off Tommy Lee Jones in MIB
Definite middle finger. Executed at the exact right moment with wavy movement that says: This is to you, B*TCH!
The fingernail is not even hitting the skin to call it a scratch.
Without a doubt.Yes
Hm. I thought so. And so, apparently, did a lot of people there.
And if so, that is crude and stupid. Lack of self-control.
It will be interesting to watch him for this “tell” from now on.
I just finished watching MIB, right before I made the post.
How weird a coincidence is that?
What explains his other non-verbal actions?
Like dusting his clothes off?
Then wiping his shoes?
Oh I think anyone with any street cred knows exactly what the combination of those actions means.
TO THOSE WHO STOPPED after he gave her the ‘salute’, watch the rest.
It is enlightening.
Yes he did! She earned it!
