Finland's 'Partying' PM Video Draws Comparisons to American Politicians
The Prime Minister of Finland, Sanna Marin has been accused of "partying" too much, in light of a new leaked video.
However, Americans have weighed in by comparing Marin with politicians from the United States who appear to have an altogether different reputation. Some also compared the situation to when a video of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing emerged online.
A new video of Marin, the 36-year-old Finnish PM, emerged online and was shared by news channel Visegrád 24.
The video has been viewed over 1.2 million times on Twitter alone, with thousands of people commenting on and sharing the footage.
"She has previously been criticized for attending too many music festivals & spending too much on partying instead of ruling," Visegrád 24 wrote alongside the video footage. "The critics say it's not fitting for a PM."
Within the video, which appears to have originally been taken from the Instagram stories of an account called @rayharautio, Marin can be seen singing and dancing to music alongside friends.
At various points they perform for the camera in what looks like a house party environment.
The comparisons between Finland and America looked at the conduct of several U.S. politicians. @thatjenmonroe described America as "full of old politicians who go to bed at 9pm" while Finland has Marin. @VersaceCeaser expanded on the comparisons.
