As part of her ongoing campaign to be awesome and not give a fuck, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got down on the dance floor at a recent musical performance in South Africa. As you can see, the singer of the band invited Hillary to dance with her, and she obliged quite readily. One might even say she danced all up on her. Or, as TMZ said, she engaged in a flagrant display of “FREAK DANCIN’. For at least a few seconds!
For the uninitiated, “freak dancin'” or “grinding” occurs when one person dances upon another as if to simulate having sex with them from behind, or “doggy style.” It’s especially popular in Caribbean cultures and middle school dances. However, despite its prurient implications, it’s been popularized and modified enough that two middle aged straight ladies can engage in it as a fun, platonic way of bonding. And Hillary Clinton fucking knows that. Look at her fucking go!
Of course, as many Youtube commenters were quick to point out, Hillary Clinton dances like a nerdy white person with no rhythm. But you know what’s great about Hillary Clinton? Hillary Clinton doesn’t care. Unless you’re a professional dancer, dancing is something we do for fun. And Hillary Clinton is not going to miss out on something fun just because she’s not the best at it. If that doesn’t combat her uptight, overachieving, Tracy Flick image, I don’t know what does.
In short: I want to dance all up on Hillary Clinton. It won’t be pretty, but it will be the time of my life. And at the end of the day, isn’t that what matters?
