If Sanders got elected, am I the only one that thinks a press conference with two Jewish heads of state named Bernie and Benny kind of sounds like a Seinfeld bit.

Netanyahu's pretrial corruption hearing begins as unity government talks falter



The start of the hearing came after talks to form a unity government after last month's election ended in stalemate hit a further snag on Tuesday when Netanyahu’s rival, Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz, called off a meeting between the two leaders slated for Wednesday.


The meeting was meant to be a last-ditch attempt by Netanyahu to cobble together a unity government between his right-wing Likud and the centrist Blue and White party. But in a statement published Tuesday Blue and White said the preconditions for future meetings between the negotiating teams had not been met.


Faltering negotiations come after Israeli President Reuven Rivlin tapped Netanyahu to form a new government following an inconclusive Sept. 17 election that left neither Netanyahu nor Gantz with a 61-seat governing majority.


Israeli presidents are responsible for picking prime minister candidates after elections. The process is usually a formality but has recently become much more complicated due to the election deadlock.
