Israeli PM wrongly refers to Boris Johnson as Boris Yeltsin

tbh: I'm not sure he's that wrong. They are/were both buffoons

The office of Israelís prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has released a video that clumsily tries to edit out a gaffe where he calls the British prime minister by the wrong name.

Netanyahu misspoke at Sundayís weekly cabinet meeting, referring to his UK counterpart Boris Johnson as Boris Yeltsin, the former Russian president who died in 2007.

ďIíve returned from a very pleasant visit in London, where Iíve met with Prime Minister Boris Yeltsin and the US defence secretary,Ē Netanyahu said at the start of the meeting.

Cabinet ministers immediately interjected, and Netanyahu gave a wry smile before correcting himself, saying he was checking to see if his colleagues were paying attention.

1. He's not the first. An MSNBC talking head made the same mistake.
