Livni skewers Netanyahu on popular satirical show, prompting harsh rebuke from Likud deputies

Tzipi Livni's appearance on one of Israel's most popular satirical programs earned her harsh rebukes from her former Likud colleagues on Sunday.
Livni delivered witty one-liners and jokes at the expense of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Channel 2's "State of the Nation," a program that often skewers Israel's politicos and public figures.
In the wake of her alliance with Labor Party chief Isaac Herzog, Livni quipped, "It's better to have two potential prime ministers rather than a prime minister who suffers from impotence."
"Like in any solid relationship between a man and a woman, me and Buji (Herzog's nickname) have decided to take out the trash together," the former justice minister said, alluding to Netanyahu.
Netanyahu's allies in Likud were hardly amused.
