If the POTUS went all the way to Israel, & the Prime Minister there said I don't have time to meet w/ him, what do you think would happen?— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) September 18, 2012
Jon Lovitz’s faith on international relations decisions? Much like his Nobel Prize, Obama didn’t earn that.
But, c’mon, Jon. You’re asking us to imagine President Obama actually swinging by Israel during one of his international apology tours? We’re pretty good at suspending disbelief, but that scenario is just too much. Too much!
Obama visiting Israel … hmm. Are “Pimp with a Limp” and David Letterman heading there too? No, no, wait. We’ve got it: Beyoncé suggested it during the only 3 a.m. phone calls Obama takes. Yeah, that’s the ticket!
Now that we’ve plotted out Obama’s unlikely trip to Israel, here’s how it would go if Netanyahu had engagements he couldn’t possibly tear himself away from.
Same as it ever was.
