The dirty washing that Sara Netanyahu had laundered in Washington last week consisted of PPE from Ichilov Hospital and items of clothing left behind by Balfour Street demonstrators, the First and Only Lady said in a statement issued this morning.
“I normally wash the protesters’ clothing by hand in the bathtub before ironing it and handing it back,” the statement quoted her as saying. “But it was essential that I go make peace with the IUD and Burundi so I decided to do it in Washington instead.”
“Imagine my surprise,” Sara continued, “when I got back to Blair House after the signing ceremony and found that someone had ransacked my bags and done all the washing. I was devastated.”
The PM’s wife added that the management of Ichilov Hospital had been “utterly delighted” when she volunteered to take some of its PPE for washing, “seeing that I had some extra room in my bags.”
Mrs. Netanyahu is now in quarantine after her trip to the US. Sources in the Prime Minister’s Residence told The Kibbitzer that she is spending her time helping out the domestic staff with their housework and crocheting quilts for the children of immigrants from Africa.
