Soiled Reputation: Israel’s Prime Minster Brings Suitcases Full of Dirty Clothes On Trips For Free Dry Cleaning

One of the perks of traveling in a diplomatic capacity to the United States is getting your clothes cleaned free of charge by the White House. It is a perk seldom used by foreign leaders as their trips are often short in length.

However, there is one person who has been taking advantage of this perk and in the eyes of some, abusing that perk.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin and his wife Sara Netanyahu have brought four to five suitcases of dirty laundry with them while visiting the United States. This has now happened multiple times.

“The Netanyahus are the only ones who bring actual suitcases of dirty laundry for us to clean,” said one U.S. official, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the details of a foreign leader’s visits. “After multiple trips, it became clear this was intentional.”

It appears four to five suitcases is tame compared to a one day trip to Portugal in December where Netanyahu and his wife allegedly brought 11 suitcases for laundering those his office denied this.

Netanyahu’s office denied speculation that the suitcases were filled with dirty laundry, saying they included items he needed for his office work.

It appears the criticism over abusing these perks has altered the Netanyahu’s volume of laundry.

The embassy added that Netan­yahu’s laundry needs were relatively modest during his most recent trip.

“On this visit, for example, there was no dry cleaning, only a couple shirts were laundered for the public meeting, and the Prime Minister’s suit and Mrs. Netanyahu’s dress were ironed also for the public meeting. Oh yes, a pair of pajamas that the Prime Minister wore on the 12 hour flight from Israel to Washington was also laundered,” the embassy statement said.

    No, the article is simply observational; the PM’s a douchebag.

    You’re ease-of-triggering is almost as hilarious as the fact that the PM does this in the first place.

  2. There is no chance this story is true. Do you think Sarah Netanyahu washes here own clothes? It’s obviously just slander from a (supposed) anonymous source that shouldn’t be repeated.

  3. Oh Oh! you said something negative about Israel or it’s PM, now you will have to pay Reparations. and here come some more F35’s, Nuclear submarines, latest Nuclear secrets, Oh wait Famous Hollywood Producer, Arnon Milcham already took care of stealing US Nuclear secrets and he got the President’s Award for that and had a street names after him and he can still come and go to USA? Thanks to the Kushners.
    In a quick response from the Israeli PM,He scolded Mossad for not placing an Israeli on this web site “Miles Quest”.Generally, most of the Travel web sites and Blogs are run By the Hebrews.
