Conan O’Brien feeds Netanyahu’s dog during trip to Israel


Comedian Conan O’Brien met with Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel on Monday — and took advantage of the encounter to feed the prime minister’s dog.

The comedian joined Netanyahu for a meal at his residence, also attended by a pet, according to a video posted to the prime minister’s official Twitter account.

O’Brien fed cucumbers to the dog, who Netanyahu said is even “paler than you.”

{mosads}“If you tried to give an American dog a cucumber, it would punch you,” O’Brien joked.

O’Brien is in Israel to tape an episode of his show “Conan Without Borders” and plans to visit Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Tel Aviv, The Washington Post reported.

Netanyahu had posted a video welcoming Conan to Israel on Saturday, joking, “Get back to me when Colbert is here.”

“Is that the pale one that melts in the sun?” Netanyahu quipped.
