Austerity is for the taxpayers.
heck at least he’d flying commerical. Obama spends more on that every hour on his golf trips.
In my fatso days, a daily half gallon of Death by Chocolate was the norm.
Quite sure that’s a typo. I’m sure the code that handles passengers doesn’t even allow field spaces of 6 (159,000)
per line item.
You really think a Jewish accountant is gonna pay this invoice?
Give me a break... you gotta be kidding me, while Obama spends multiple millions on golf outings, vacations, date night trips to NYC, or wherever the hell else he wants to go... sputtering spittle!!
So you’re the least of a country, flying someone to have an important meeting with important people on subjects which could mean the fortunes and lives of your country.
Off to coach class for you, haul your own bag and forget about security!
Israel, or nowhere really in the middle east has cow herds providing milk. Like we don’t have affordable dates and figs.
Every country has relative luxuries they have to import.
Bibi, I know Joe Biden...I served with Joe Biden, and you Sir are no Joe Biden.
Rush could have hooked him up with a Sleep Number bed for a fraction of that.
I’ll bet Nanzi Pelousi spends more than that on
ice cream on her own air travel.
Besides, it’s ice cream, not cigars or weed.
I think it’s the austerity. And the ice cream. Israeli taxpayers are no different than the rest of us when see our leaders living the rich life.
flew to London for Margaret Thatchers funeral on a specially outfitted El Al plane that cost the tax payers an extra 500,000 shekels, or $139,000, more than a standard plane
- - - - -
It was the extra on the entire plane rental, not a pair of passengers.
He fought for his country, literal blood, sweat and tears, much like out commander in chief -NOT- an in flight bed? AN IN FLIGHT BED?!?! -————SHUT UP-——
One can’t deny that Netanyahu bravely and effectively served his nation as a young man in the military.
Slow news day, Jumper?
Just show them a copy of the bill for Michelle’s last vacation...
Slow news or not, there’s always room for another positive story. And that positive news is that Shimon Peres takes austerity to heart.
