Bennett mocked on social media for untailored suit worn at COP26

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett was mocked on social media for his appearance at the UN Climate Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland on Monday.

As Bennett was meeting world leaders, some for the first time, social media’s attention was immediately drawn to Bennett’s suit, which did not seem to properly fit the Israeli prime minister. The length of his sleeves, for example, was immediately apparent as being too long. 

“Bennett desperately needs a tailor,” some social media users wrote. “Are there no tailors in Israel?” one Twitter user jokingly asked.

The Jerusalem Post‘s Middle East Correspondent Seth Frantzman offered a more positive take, suggesting that Bennett might not “spend all the time on his suit but maybe on things that are important.”

Jake Sherman, NBC News’ political analyst, shared a video of Bennett meeting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the first time ever, pleading for someone to “take this man’s sleeves up.”

“Bennett needs to get that jacket tailored,” Sherman added on Twitter.
