Hillary Clinton shares dancing picture in support of Finnish Prime Minister
“Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels,” Clinton quoted former Texas Gov. Ann Richards as saying, along with a photo of herself dancing in the Sunday 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 toward the camera, and Marin and five others posing toward a camera and dancing have prompted mixed reactions with some opponents categorizing her behavior as unbecoming and supporters arguing that the criticism highlights a double standard.
“These videos are private and filmed in a private space. I resent that these became known to the public,” Marin told reporters earlier this month.
“I spent a night with my friends. We just partied, also in a boisterous way. I danced and sang,” she said.
She said alcohol was consumed but that she was not aware of any drug use at the party.
