(Rallying Patriots) – Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is making a fool of herself, again. Aside from the fact that she is blissfully unaware of just how irrelevant she’s become, she’s injected herself in a scandal involving the Finnish Prime Minister by somehow making it about herself.
A little background first. The Finnish Prime Minister, Sanna Marin, has faced much criticism during her tenure over excessive partying and drinking. She was most recently forced to issue an apology after inappropriate pictures were taken inside her home featuring two women kissing while holding up their shirts. The Guardian reported the two women were holding up a sign that said “Finland” to cover their chests.
Marin “tearfully apologized” last week, according to the New York Post, while insisting she is “human also.”
“I think the picture is not appropriate, I apologize for it,” the Prime Minister said. “Such a picture should not have been taken.”
While no one is saying that politicians shouldn’t be able to let loose and have a good time, Marin seems to have crossed the line between “fun” and “inappropriate” and her critics question whether or not she is fit to lead Finland.
Instead of addressing those legitimate concerns, leftists like Clinton would rather make it an issue of misogyny. At least that’s what the former secretary of state’s Twitter post regarding the matter appeared to do, along with shamelessly making it about herself.
“As Ann Richards said, ‘Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did,’” Clinton wrote. “‘She just did it backwards and in high heels.’ Here’s me in Cartagena while I was there for a meeting as Secretary of State. Keep dancing, @marinsanna.”
The tweet featured an image of Clinton attempting to dance on what appeared to be a busy dance floor.

The post was an instant magnet of criticism. The New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz mocked Clinton for interjecting herself in a situation that had absolutely nothing to do with her at all.
“Hmm, how do I make this about me?” Markowicz wrote. “Oh, I got it, I also once danced.”

“You are pathetic,” another user wrote.
Conservative commentator Mike Cernovich questioned whether Clinton’s partying was behind scandals during her tenure as secretary of state.

Some users used common sense to counter Clinton’s tone-deaf tweet and even pointed out how Clinton managed to make the issue about misogyny rather than decency.
“If you were in office, would you be ok both of these pictures?” one user wrote alongside the aforementioned topless image. “Both are from PM’s video conferencing room. One is from a party she organized. I’ll let you guess which one. It is not about dancing, sex or age. It is about decency and what is proper and what is not.”

“Wow. Global left actually succeeded in making this as misogyny conspiracy,” another user wrote. “Just want to say as finn that it was not about dancing. It was about proper work attitude as head of state during these hard times. She partied 4/7 days in one week.”

However, Marin herself responded to Clinton’s tweet with a “thank you” and a heart emoji. How touching.

Despite receiving a “thank you” from Marin, the only other thing Clinton’s tweet accomplished was making her look like a fool.
