When President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Israel today, they were greeted by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara. The real news, however, is what an open mike caught Sara Netanyahu telling Melania upon their arrival.
It is important to note that, while Prime Minister Netanyahu and his wife are popular with Israeli citizens, they are convenient targets for their political enemies and a leftist media looking to tear them down. Sara Netanyahu even won a couple of libel suits against Israeli media outlets that reported false gossip about her.
Sara Netanyahu likely finds Melania Trump a kindred spirit, as she is well aware of the media’s treatment of Melania and her husband. Upon landing in Israel, Sara took the time during their brief greeting on the airport tarmac to encourage her, and to take a little dig at the media at the same time.
A hot microphone caught the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bashing the media while welcoming President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump to Israel.
“I talk every place about how great she is and how great you are,” Sara Netanyahu said to the president. “I can testify to that,” the Israeli prime minister jumped in.
“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,” Sara continued.
As she was speaking, President Trump leaned over to his Israeli counterpart and said, “We have very much in common,” to which Benjamin Netanyahu replied: “Sounds familiar.”
Here is the video, with their captured conversation.
