The second a person steps into the political arena, they're often seen as fair game for mocking by comedians, cartoonists and more. Hillary Clinton is no stranger to being the subject of some laughs.

But a less than three-minute video, currently with nearly 41,000 views on YouTube, posted earlier this month apparently drew ire from the Democratic presidential candidate's campaign.

According to Judicial Watch, Laugh Factory, a comedy club with locations across the country, posted footage of a comedian taking jabs at the Monica Lewinsky scandal, her attire and also alluded to questions about her sexual orientation. The club's owner Jamie Masada told the legal focused news site that the Clinton's campaign has demanded the video be taken down.

"They threatened me,” Masada told Judicial Watch. "I have received complaints before but never a call like this, threatening to put me out of business if I don’t cut the video."

The video, titled "Hillary Clinton vs. the First Amendment at The Laugh Factory (Stand-up Comedy)," featured highlights of the performances by comedians Mike Marino, Dom Irrera, Greg Fitzsimmons, Tiffany Haddish and Brian Holtzman.

"That woman should be president of the United States," Irrera said, drawing laughs. "Because she knows what it's like to like men and love women."

Haddish said she also would "love" if Clinton became president, "then you divorce Bill and then you marry a bitch. Oh, s***t, that would f***k the world up in their head."

Fitzsimmons targeted Clinton's affinity certain suit styles, saying "she looks like she's playing linebacker for T.J. Maxx."

"It's the kind of outfit that you say, 'Who wore it better: Caitlyn Jenner or Hillary Clinton?" he added.

Watch the footage (Content warning: strong language):

Masada told Judicial Watch that after the video was posted on November 9, he got a phone call from a "prominent" member of the Democratic frontrunner's campaign.

"He said the video was disgusting and asked who put me up to this,” Masada said.

But Masada told Judicial Watch that he will not take the video down and defended the First Amendment, which protects freedom of speech, in the appropriately named video.

The day the video was posted, Laugh Factory tweeted, "When @HillaryClinton visits @TheLaughFactory, don't expect the 1st Amendment to stop."

Clinton's campaign did not immediately respond to TheBlaze's request for comment.
