During a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, President Barack Obama needled MSNBC host Chuck Todd for squeezing in three questions when he was called upon.

“Chuck, how many you got?” President Obama interrupted Todd as he was moving onto his third question.

“Do you guys do this in the Israeli press?” the president asked with a smirk on his face. “You say you get one question and you add like five? You see how the young lady from Channel 1 had one question, she was very well-behaved, Chuck?

“This is not a kosher question but don’t hog it,” Netanyahu joked to Todd, also an NBC News reporter and analyst.
