Lapid skewers Netanyahu over ‘record-breaking cynicism’

Opposition leader Yair Lapid condemns Netanyahu’s remarks calling for elections to be averted, saying the prime minister “broke the records of even his own cynicism.”

“The man who spends his days dabbling in incitement and hatred, goes on TV tonight and speaks out against incitement and hatred. All day, he deals in the worst and pettiest of politics, and then at night goes on TV and says stop with the politics.

“He failed totally in dealing with the coronavirus and economy, and then went and lied that he’s a terrific success, when we all know the figures show otherwise. Because of this, he must go home. Israel needs a new path, a narrow and honest government that will earn public trust, deal with the coronavirus and the economy,” he tweets.
