Hillary Clinton shared a photo of herself dancing in a salsa bar when she was US Secretary of State in a message of support for the Prime Minister of Finland.
The image shows Mrs Clinton with her hand in the air at Cafe Havana, in Cartagena, Colombia, during a break from the US summit in 2012.
“As Ann Richards said, ‘Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels,'” she wrote.
“Here I am in Cartagena while I was there for a meeting as Secretary of State. Keep dancing, Sanna Marin.”
The message came after videos emerged of the Prime Minister of Finland dancing with friends in a private home, which drew criticism of her leadership and resulted in her being tested for drugs.
The married mother-of-one, who categorically denied ever taking drugs, said she had to take the test, which came back negativefor its “own legal protection”.
“I had time off and spent it with my friends. And I didn’t do anything illegal,” she said at the time.
In the clips, six people could be seen dancing and lip-syncing to a song, including Ms Marin, and she is later seen dancing on her knees with her hands behind her head.
In another video, she could be seen dancing with male pop star Olavi Uusivirta in a Helsinki nightclub, with people claiming she showed him kissing her on the neck – which Ms Marin denied .
A few days later, an image emerged online of two social media influencers kissing and posing naked in his official residence during a party.
The 36-year-old apologized for the photo, saying it was “not appropriate”, but said “nothing out of the ordinary happened at the meeting”.
Ms Marin, married to her husband Markus Raikkonen since 2020, is the world’s youngest head of state.
While she faced intense scrutiny for the clips, she also received an outpouring of support online, with hundreds of women posting videos of themselves dancing with the hashtag #SolidaritywithSanna.
Many people have suggested that Finland’s prime minister has come under far more scrutiny than his male counterparts like Boris Johnson and Donald Trump.
