Hillary Clinton tells Finnish PM Sanna Marin: ‘Keep dancing’

Date:

Hillary Clinton rushes to support Finland’s party-loving Prime Minister, Sanna Marin, relives her own scandal of showing off her stuff in the office — and urges her to “keep dancing” through the backlash.

The doomed Democratic presidential nominee linked Marin, 36, to a throwback photo from when she also made headlines 10 years ago for tearing up the dance floor and drinking a beer while representing the US.

“As Ann Richards said, ‘Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels,’” wrote Clinton74, citing a now famous quote from the late former Texas governor.

Hillary urged the criticized prime minister to “keep dancing”.

“Here I am in Cartagena while there for a meeting as Secretary of State,” Clinton wrote of the photo of her blowing off steam in Colombia at the end of the VI Summit of the Americas in 2012.

“Keep dancing, @marinsanna,” the supportive former first lady tweeted.

Her post quickly received more than 150,000 likes, including from the Finnish leader himself.

Clinton’s support reached the young Finnish prime minister, who replied with a simple “thank you” and a heart emoji.

“Thank you @HillaryClinton,” replied Marin with a heart emoji.

The Finnish leader – one of the world’s youngest heads of state at just 36 – has faced mounting pressure after someone shared videos of her wanting to dance, leaving opponents wondering if she was on drugs.

Other leaks revealed that the married mother danced with a mystery man and hosted topless influencers at her official summer residence.

She apologized in tears last week, insisting, “I’m human too.”

The prime minister also revealed that she had taken a drug test to prove she was not under the influence. The test came back negative.

Clinton had also faced a backlash after she was seen tearing up the dance floor and having a beer while partied with about 12 friends at Cafe Havana in Cartagena.

Still, it was one of many scandals she survived, with The Post commenting at the time that she was simply “Havana a great time.”

Post columnist Andrea Peyser even took it as proof that Clinton was ready to launch her doomed run for the White House.

While Marin appreciated the support, not everyone in the European nation felt the same.

Some Finnish people urged Clinton to keep her nose out of their politics, telling her to do that instead “take care of US domestic policy.”

Another critic wrote:: “Well, dear Hillary and Marin, this is the right time to dance and have a party. I do not think so. The whole world is falling apart. Or is that why you celebrate?”
