Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wasn’t the only one to get to schmooze with President Barack Obama Wednesday.

While at the prime minister’s residence in Jerusalem, Netanyahu’s oldest son, Yair, received some face time with the American commander-in-chief.

Yair, a university student in his early 20s, asked the president about his daughters.“How old are Sasha and Malia?”

“Malia is 14 and Sasha is 11,” Obama answered. “They send their regards and hope that you’ll come visit in the US.”

The president then asked the junior Netanyahu about his studies.
“What are you studying?” Obama asked.

“International relations,” Yair answered.

“There ya’ go,” the president said, in support of the lad’s foray into world politics and trade.

Then Netanyahu, the concerned parent, spoke up: “I don’t like this.”

“They don’t want me to go into politics,” Yair said, referring to his parents.

“Go into business first,” Obama said in agreement.

The response from Sara Netanyahu was immediate. “Exactly,” she said.
