Hillary Clinton shares photo dancing in support of Finnish PM

Hillary Clinton expressed support for Sanna Marin, tweeting a photo of herself dancing as the Finnish prime minister faced criticism over leaked footage that showed her partying with friends.

“Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels,” Clinton said citing former Texas Governor Ann Richards, along with a photo of her dancing in Sunday’s tweet.

The photo, Clinton said, was taken in Colombia during her visit as Secretary of State for the Sixth Summit of the Americas. “Keep dancing,” she encouraged Marin.

Private videos that appeared to show Marin on the floor, singing for the camera, and Marin and five others posing for a camera and dancing drew mixed reactions with some opponents categorizing her behavior as inappropriate and supporters arguing that the criticisms highlight a double standard.

After the videos were released, Marin acknowledged he was partying “noisily” but said he was angry that the footage was leaked to the media.

“These videos are private and filmed in a private space. I resent that they have become known to the public,” Marin told reporters earlier this month.

“I spent a night with my friends. We just celebrated, also noisily. I danced and sang,” she said.

She said alcohol was consumed, but she was not aware of any drug use at the party.

Marin underwent a drug test following what she called “pretty serious accusations in the public domain that I used narcotics.” The test showed no evidence of any drugs, according to a statement from the government communications office.

In recent days, women around the world have posted videos on social media dancing in support of the prime minister.

On Sunday, Marin thanked Clinton for joining them, tweeting: “Thanks @HillaryClinton ❤️”
