PHOTO: Yair Lapid uses Netanyahu's 'UN-Acme-bomb' at economic conference

Remember when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used a picture of a bomb while talking about Iran at the UNGA? Here’s a reminder, complete with excellent memes.

Today, Yesh Atid leader and Knesset Member wannabe Yair Lapid mocked the prime minister at an economic conference with a bomb of his own, detailing the tax hikes of the past two years under the Likud’s rule.

The tax rises on the middle class

Housing prices: 37%

Gas prices: 38%

Water prices: 115%

Electricity prices: 23%

Lapid later went on to draw a red line above them all, implying the hike in income tax he claims the prime minister will enforce after his reelection.

        I think this is one reason Lieberman was not allowed to address UN, he could actually start banging with his shoe.
