Apparently, Israel also has a “fake news” liberal media so the Trumps and Netanyahus have a lot in common!
The wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was caught making diplomatic small talk with First Lady Melania Trump upon President Donald Trump’s arrival in Israel on Monday, flagging up something they share in common: the media’s alleged hatred of both couples.
Landing at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, fresh from visiting Saudi Arabia, the Trumps had taken the first-ever direct flight from Saudi Arabia to Israel. On the airport tarmac, the Netanyahus and Israeli ministers welcomed the First Couple.
Israel’s Channel 2 broadcaster caught the remarks between the two women. “You know in Israel all the people like us, the media hate us but the people love us,” Sara Netanyahu said to Melania Trump. “Like you.”

“We have a lot in common,” Trump responded, with Sara Netanyahu promising they would continue the discussion over a private dinner Monday night at the prime minister’s residence.
The first family arrived in Israel Monday morning for President Trump’s second stop on his overseas trip.
“On my first trip overseas as president, I have come to this sacred and ancient land to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the United States and the state of Israel,” the president said at a welcoming ceremony in Tel Aviv, adding that Israel is “one of the great civilizations.”
President Trump has had a tense relationship with the press, calling critical stories “witch hunts” or “fake news,” while regularly singling out certain news outlets for their reporting.
The president said last week that “no politician in history” has been treated “more unfairly” than he has been, following reports surrounding the Russia probe.
“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately. Especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down,” Trump said at a ceremony at the White House.
