Netanyahu's not buying it.
In an epic - and also quite hilarious - rant against the omnipresence of smartphones, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a few words of advice for the cameramen and photographers who caught the tirade on tape.
"So I'm the only person here without all those electronic devices?," Netanyahu wondered. "I'm a FREE man, and you are all SLAVES."
The prime minister carefully set out his argument:
"I don't get this new world. Everybody's taking pictures," Netanyahu complained. "When do they have time to live? They're taking pictures all the time."
"Everyone's taking pictures of each other. Only taking pictures, that's all they do. Taking pictures, pictures, pictures, pictures, pictures. Stop taking pictures. Live!"
According to the Times of Israel, the video was taped during a photo shoot ahead of an interview session with the international press last week.
