How Many Security Guys Does Benjamin Netanyahu Need To Go to the Bathroom?

Call it Bibi’s really big pee squad.

Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly had 20 Israeli agents usher him to the men’s room at Harry Cipriani restaurant at the Sherry-Netherland hotel Tuesday, the New York Post reported.

“Around 20 security guards got up with Bibi and a few went into the bathroom with him. One watched the door, and the rest lined up with their arms up to form a human barricade, so nobody could enter the bathroom or even get close,” a source told the paper.

The premier, who is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly, arrived at the posh eatery around 9 p.m.

A-listers like Charlie Rose, Ron Perelman and Iris Apfel watched as dozens of Shin Bet agents swept into the joint, which normally seats about 100 diners.

Agents formed a gantlet around the restaurant as Bibi ate with his wife, Sara.

Things got even more hectic when the premier felt the call of nature. He had to go down a few steps to the bathroom and agents formed a human barricade to prevent any intruders from getting to the guy’s room while he took care of business.
