Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid blasted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, accusing the premier of being “disconnected from reality.”

Lapid made the remarks in an interview with Israel Radio. The former finance minister was responding to Netanyahu’s comments on Tuesday in which he placed responsibility for the high cost of living on Lapid.

“The prime minister seems to discover new facts at the last minute,” Lapid told Israel Radio. “Every year, he gives a speech in English so that Likud central committee members won’t understand, talking about his commitment to two states, and then does nothing.”

“Netanyahu has no interest in moving forward economically, diplomatically, and socioeconomically,” Lapid said. “The only thing that interests him is staying the prime minister. And even he doesn’t know why.”
