Powered by Topple

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, were picked up on a hot mic commiserating with President Donald Trump on their shared disdain for the liberal media.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump were engaged in small talk with the Netanyahus on the airport tarmac as the president arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel on Monday.

Trump is heard telling Mrs. Netanyahu his wife was an admirer, and she was quick to return the compliment.

“I talk every place about her, how great she is and how great you are,” Mrs. Netanyahu said.

“I can testify to that,” the prime minister chimed in.

Mrs. Netanyahu followed that with a comment about how they are loved by the Israeli people —  even if the media hates them.

“Because the majority of the people in Israel, unlike the media, they love us so we tell them how you are great, so they love you,” Mrs. Netanyahu said.

The president wasted no time replying, “We have something very much in common.”

…his point about the media impossible to miss.

“Sounds familiar,” Prime Minister Netanyahu said.

Mrs. Netanyahu then suggested that this was a topic they could discuss over dinner.

Real people expressing real opinions. Is there any wonder both leaders are so popular with the folks?
