Sorry For Partying: Finland's Prime Minister Apologizes For Clubbing After COVID Close Contact

There's a new member of the COVID bad girls club and it is none other than Finland's 36-year-old Prime Minster Sanna Marin, who got all reckless and wild Saturday night in Helsinki where the mom was partying at 4 a.m. The PM had to issue a "sorry for partying" apology after it was revealed the pol was partying after coming into close contact with a person who tested positive for COVID.

According to the BBC, Marin was told she didn't need to isolate because she's double vaxxed and down to party, but then she missed a text to her work phone that advised her she should "voluntarily avoid social contact" due to guidelines being followed by Finland government officials and employees.

In an absolutely brilliant move, Ms. Marin explained that she left her work phone at home before going out partying. SMART!

But, because it's the COVID era and Marin's government has had all sorts of rules for the common man and woman, there she was Sunday explaining herself -- on Facebook.

"However, a text message has received some unusual information from the State Council's work phone, which has been urged to avoid contacts and apply for the test. I received this information on Sunday and immediately applied for a test, the result was negative," she wrote.

"On Saturday night I didn't have a government council phone with me, but a parliamentary work phone, which I mainly use to handle work tasks. You can always reach me on the phone and so you reached me this time too.

"I should have used better consideration on Saturday night and rehearse the instruction I got another time. I'm really sorry that I didn't understand how to do this."

Can we all just agree that it's time to get back to partying until 4 a.m.? Sanna needs to be the cover model for this project. She needs to be out partying all over Finland. In fact, Finland should lead the world in partying. I'm talking Dan Bilzerian & his models in one corner of the Finnish club, Sanna and her political aides getting rocked in the other corner.

I need Sanna pumping out partying Snaps and Toks. I need Sanna leading this world back from the dark COVID era and it starts with partying until 4 a.m. Maybe we can talk Waffle House into setting up shop in Helsinki. The world needs to be in on this project.

Sanna needs the experience of walking into Waffle House at 4 a.m. after taking a ride on the double-vodka cran train. I'm talking about one of those nights where you think it's smart to go smothered, covered, chunked, peppered and topped. Let's get wild, Sanna!

It's beyond time to get back to politicians like Sanna not having to apologize for partying, but it's going to take more partying from Sanna. Yes, she's a mother. I get that it's not cool for moms to go nuts every weekend, but let's be honest, Sanna needs a girls' trip to Nashville.

Hey Sanna, drinks at 6th & Peabody on Clay and the OutKick 360 crew. Let's help lead this world out of the darkness one double-vodka cran at a time. Email us.

Translation: Yes, I'd love to come party in Nashville. I hear Chad Withrow is a blast. Let's get on the double-vodka cran train!
