Obama, Netanyahu Poke Fun At Chuck Todd For Asking So Many Questions (VIDEO)

NBC News’ Chuck Todd was granted the last question of President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Wednesday at a joint press conference in Jerusalem, and he made the most of it.

Todd asked multiple questions, which led the world leaders to gently poke fun at the White House correspondent’s longwinded query.  

“Chuck how many you got?” Obama said, interrupting Todd. “Do you guys do this in the Israeli press? You say you get one question, and then you add like five.”

“These are Talmudic questions, they have reiterations,” Netanyahu added. “This is not a kosher question, but don’t hog it!”
