Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has weighed in on the controversy that is surrounding video footage of Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin, which features her doing some rather wild, saucy moves, along with a picture of herself busting out some dances while serving as secretary of state in Cartagena, Colombia over a decade ago.
Let me just say, when you see what Hillary posted on her social media on this issue it will probably be the most cringe thing you are going to see on the Internet today. This is seriously going to be hard to top, folks.
Oh, and once you’ve witnessed this, there’s no amount of bleach on this planet that could possible wash it out of your head.
According to the Daily Wire, Marin has received a ton of backlash over the videos, which show her getting funky in a rather up close and personal way with a dude who is not the same dude she’s married to, which is not a good look politically speaking.
Oh, but it actually gets worse. There are also pictures of women with their boobies bared for all to see, making out at her official residence.

Again, not a good look.
“As Ann Richards said, ‘Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels,’” Clinton stated in what can be interpreted as her best feminist tone, going to cite the former Democratic governor of Texas. “Here’s me in Cartagena while I was there for a meeting as Secretary of State. Keep dancing, @marinsanna.”’

Here’s a bit more about all this from the Daily Wire report:
Clinton quoted Richards’ 1988 keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention referencing Astaire and Rogers, but the line has been attributed to an earlier usage, in a 1982 Frank and Ernest cartoon by Bob Thaves.
Marin apologized after a photo revealed two bare-chested women kissing at her official residence, with one woman’s breasts only covered by a sign reading, “Finland.”
Marin, telling reporters in Helsinki that she had invited some friends over to “sauna, swim and spend time together” after the Ruisrock music festival in July and that the incident occurred in the downstairs guest bathrooms, offered, “In my opinion that photo is not appropriate. I apologize for that; that photo shouldn’t have been taken,” according toYLE News.
“We were using the sauna facilities and the garden area, but we did not spend time inside the Kesäranta house, although the downstairs guest toilets were in use,” Marin clarified.
Sabina Sarkka, one of the women featured in the now infamous girl-on-girl kissing photo, has issued an apology for embarrassing Marin, according to a report from The Daily Mail.

“Many women who support Marin have been posting videos of themselves dancing on social media, with the tag #SolidarityWithSanna,”UPIreported, writing that that the women were standing against what they say is unfair and sexist treatment of Marin.
Or, and here me out, the behavior exhibited by Marin is unprofessional and disgraceful for someone in a position of leadership. A nation’s leaders should be held to a higher standard than others. More should be expected out of them morally speaking. This woman has proven she’s far too immature to be a respectable leader.
If she wants to be wild and party like she’s a teenager, by all means, do that. But resign from your position first.
