Zehut held a final campaign event in Netanya Monday evening, with its candidates talking about “freedom, [cannabis] legalization [and the] free market.” Before that, the party held a three-hour webcast from party leader Moshe Feiglin’s Facebook page, answering qustions from the public, and responding to “rumors and attacks.”
Feiglin also had to do damage control after an interview with Dudu Bauchner, a comedian who has made a series of videos for Ynet. Bauchner and Feiglin massaged each other’s own feet and poured alcohol on them. Feiglin slapped Bauchner’s feet, saying he’s the “extreme right” and needs to “take out his aggression.” The video went viral online, with some joking he was high on marijuana, the drug Zehut hopes to legalize. Someone even posted it to the foot fetish section of the pornography website PornHub. Feiglin defended the video, saying it was “in the spirit of Purim,” but posted online weeks later. “When you’re in Rome, act like a Roman and try to enjoy yourself,” Feiglin said in an interview with Channel 12.
