Former US First Lady and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton posted a photo of her dancing on her social media account to support Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin, who is the target of entertainment life and criticism arrows, and wrote “Keep dancing Sanna Marin”.
150 THOUSAND PEOPLE LIKED SANNA MARIN’S RESPONSE
Clinton’s post was quickly liked by more than 150 thousand people, including Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin. Finnish Prime Minister Marin thanked Clinton with a heart emoji.
While Marin appreciated the support from the United States, not everyone in his country agreed. Some social media users from Finland urged Clinton to stay away from domestic affairs, urging him to take care of his own country.
One user replied, “Dear Hillary and Marin, is it the right time to dance and party? I do not think so. The whole world is falling apart. Or is that the reason for the celebration?” she asked.
AT THE TARGET OF CRITICAL ARROWS
The Finnish leader, who is just 36 years old and is one of the youngest presidents in the world, has faced increasing pressure after videos of him dancing wildly were leaked one after another.
SUPPORT MESSAGES DRAIN UP, EVEN BY OPPOSITORS
Women around the world began sharing photos of them dancing in support of Marin, as dissidents harshly criticized the prime minister and demanded that he take a drug test.
Australian politician Fiona Patten tweeted: “If stressing out at a party is the worst thing your prime minister has done, then you’re in a pretty lucky country.”
Spanish politician Iratxe García Pérez expressed his support for Sanna Marin and said, “What a shock! A young politician who does his job and enjoys his private life… Why can’t a young woman have fun? I can’t stand the sexist double standard.”
HE HOLD HARD TEARS
Prime Minister Marin had struggled to hold back her tears while defending himself at an event organized by his party recently. Marin said in his statement here, “I am human too, and I miss happiness, joy and fun among the dark clouds in my life. I want to believe that people will look at what we do at work, not what we do in our spare time.”
