"I'm f---ing Obama"

A new satire suggests that Hillary Clinton is, well, f---ing Barack Obama, and not in the sense you think.

It's not quite an actual prank -- or even a bowling joke -- but here's your April Fools' levity for the day: A new viral video titled "I'm fucking Obama," filmed from the perspective of one Hillary Clinton.

The video, which is below, follows in the hallowed tradition of "I'm fucking Matt Damon" and "I'm fucking Ben Affleck," videos filmed by comedian Sarah Silverman and her boyfriend, Jimmy Kimmel, that went viral in a major way earlier this year. (The music you'll hear in the background of the video is taken from "I'm fucking Matt Damon.") But this one has a deeper message -- Clinton, the video's makers imply, isn't actually having sex with Barack Obama, she's just hurting his chances of winning the general election if he's the nominee. It's another part of a growing dolchstosslegende narrative that we've seen increasing numbers of Obama supporters discussing recently.
