“I saw Benjamin Netanyahu at a hotel gym in Paris last week,” wrote John Mulaney alongside the photo. “We were alone along with 9 bodyguards.” The stand-up comic, writer and actor then shared a few lines of the poem I’m in Paris With You by James Fenton, ending: “Am I embarrassing you? I’m in Paris with you.”

On Twitter, Mulaney posted one photo of the prime minister, and on Instagram he shared the shot and then shared another, close-up image.

Netanyahu was in Paris last Tuesday as part of his four-day trip to London, which included stops in Germany France and the UK.

In the photo, the 68-year-old Netanyahu can be seen using a hand weight while seated on a bench. The prime minister’s security detail can be spotted in the background.
