The White House is really taking Benjamin Netanyahu’s win in Israel like mature adults:

On CNN this morning, White House aide David Simas avoided congratulating Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the Israeli elections. Instead, he would only congratulate the Israeli people on having an election.

The White House has said they wanted to remain neutral in Israel’s election (cue laughter), so out of respect, the WH won’t weigh in on the results until Ayatollah Khamenei has an opportunity to point out how Netanyahu’s reelection threatens Iran’s security.

Other world leaders elections and reelections have warranted congratulatory phone calls from the White House, including these:

In fairness though, this is one of the president’s busier times of year:

Sorry, Kentucky.

There are also other related distractions:


Obama is also expected to suggest the NCAA put a “red line” on the court that doesn’t really mean anything.

Update: John Kerry has called Netanyahu, possibly to remind him that the only reason he won was because of climate change.
