Norway’s Minister of Health and Care Services, Bent Høie, has decided to comment on the Russian propaganda laws by taking his husband, advertising exec Dag Terje Solvang, to Sochi. Bent Høie, who holds a position in the Norwegian government comparable to our Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, waved his status like a red cape before a bull, daring the Russians to object. Minister Høie doubled down on his strategy, telling Norway’s Stavanger Aftenblad newspaper, that it is a normal for a cabinet minister to travel with a spouse on an official visit.I hope somebody tells Anders Behring Breivik too. Because, as ever, fuck that guy.
