Comedian Claims Successful Prank Call To President

Comedian Claims Successful Prank Call To President

John Melendez, a comedian known as "Stuttering John" who was once a regular on the Howard Stern Show, claimed during his podcast to have reached President Trump Wednesday night while posing as New Jersey Sen. "So Bob, here's what - let me do this, I'm on Air Force One, uh, I'm just coming back from an unbelievable rally in North Dakota, actually", Trump says.

Melendez and "Trump" then chat about immigration policy and the process of choosing a Supreme Court nominee before wrapping up their conversation a few minutes later. He revealed the details of his prank call on his podcast. This insider says the call was routed to Trump by Kushner and not routed through the office of legislative affairs, which has absolutely no record of Senator Menendez trying to call the president.

Newsroom anchors Christi Paul and Victor Blackwell erupted in laughter on Saturday while reporting on the latest competency scandal to dog the White House. Neither the White House nor the Secret Service have returned calls to confirm Melendez's claims about the prank call and resulting visit.

Of course, this came amongst a news cycle that included the retirement of a Supreme Court justice and a mass shooting in a newspaper newsroom, so the story probably got buried before being circulated on Friday afternoon.

Bragging about his feat, Melendez said on his podcast, "This just shows you how easy it is to infiltrate the White House".

"Hi Bob. How are you, congratulations on everything, we're proud of you".

Trump replied: "I wanna be able to take care of the situation, every bit as much as everybody else at the top level..." "They're doing them step by step".

"It's a very chilling thing to contemplate" what kinds of "disruptions" other potential phone impersonators could cause, the Virginia Democrat said in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room". "Menendez's assistant, and we'd like to talk to the President.' They said they'd call me back, and then they called back on cellphone", Melendez recalled.

After leaving a message with a White House staffer, someone called him back to clarify the cell phone number, as the number did not match Bob Menendez's office.

"I think we could do a real immigration bill", Trump said.

"A lot of these celebrities don't get it - they don't want to ever be able to laugh at themselves", Melendez told The Washington Post in a 1994 interview.

White House officials did not respond today to requests for comment on how the prankster had been allowed to get through to the president. Bob Menendez has "chilling" implications, Rep. Gerry Connolly said. "We have to have security at the border". He say he got a call from Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who was with the president on Air Force One.

Trump says he has a "big list of people" and that a decision will be made over the next few weeks.
