Bennett accidentally calls Netanyahu ‘prime minister,’ quickly corrects himself

During a press conference at the Knesset earlier, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett accidentally referred to his predecessor Benjamin Netanyahu as “the prime minister” while discussing the upcoming vote on the Palestinian reunification law.

After one of the listeners commented on his slip, Bennett quickly amended: “The former prime minister of course — Bibi.”

Posting a clip of the gaffe on Twitter, Likud MK David Amsalem comments: “A completely understandable mistake. God willing, we’re coming back soon.”
