A recently leaked video of Marin dancing and having fun at her home with a group of friends and celebrities put her in the middle of some controversy. Critics argued the video showed inappropriate behavior for a prime minister, but many people, including Clinton at this time, defended the leader’s right to have a private event with friends. The world’s youngest prime minister is a 36-year-old politician.

Marin let other members of her social democratic party know that it was important to get laid back at times. “I am human. And I too sometimes yearn for joy, light and fun amid these dark clouds,” said Marin, the world’s youngest prime minister. She added that she hadn’t missed “a single day of work”.

However, she faced further backlash after a photo surfaced of two ladies lifting their shirts at a rally at the Prime Minister’s home in July. Marin apologized again.

President Barack Obama appointed Clinton, who is now 74, to lead the State Department from 2009 to 2013. She ran as the Democratic candidate in the 2016 U.S. election. Although heavily favored, Hillary suffered an upset loss to real estate mogul Donald Trump.
