Israeli ad spoofs Trump after speech

An Israeli telecom company on Monday aired a new commercial parodying President Trump following his speech in Israel.

The ad from Bezeq features Israeli actor Gidi Gov promoting a secure internet service called Smart New while pretending to be Trump.

“We’ve lost control of the House,” a National Security Council team member tells the fake Trump.

{mosads}“What? Get me the Smart Net,” the fake Trump replies in Hebrew. “The smart and secure internet service from Bezeq.”

“It doesn’t matter where they’ll try to hack from,” he adds. “The smart TV, the camera or the computer. Smart Net is the iron dome of the house.”

The spot ends with a man in a bathrobe walking into the meeting and asking “what the hell is going on” in Trump’s voice.

The fake Trump is then escorted out while shouting “Crooked Hillary” and “not the hair, not the hair” in Hebrew.

Journalists on Twitter noted that Bezeq’s commercial appeared timed to coincide with Trump’s remarks in Jerusalem alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Was particularly jarring when my live stream of the Bibi-Trump press conference went straight into this,” The Jerusalem Post’s Amy Spiro tweeted. “Hoo boy.”

“Immediately following Trump’s press conference on Channel 2 and 10 News a commercial break with a special commercial from Bezeq of Gidi playing Trump,” The Marker’s Nati Tucker tweeted in Hebrew. “Timing is everything.”

Trump is visiting Israel for two days as part of his first foreign trip as president, a trek that also includes Saudi Arabia and the Vatican.

The president earlier Monday became the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem, the holiest site where Jews are allowed to pray.
