Donald Trump gets prank call on Air Force One

A comedian claims to have spoken for several minutes with US President Donald Trump after calling the White House and pretending to be a US senator, in an episode that has revived scrutiny of the security of the Trump administration's communications. Comedian "Stuttering John" Melendez got one over big time on the leader of the free world Donald Trump by posing as a NJ Senator who is pals with the president. The call was patched through to Trump, despite Sen. 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.

It is believed they have not talked to the White House since the recording came out.

As for Melendez, he tweeted his shock that not more people had picked up the prank call.

Melendez, who has worked with Howard Stern and Jay Leno, said that he spoke with Trump on numerous occasions when he was a private citizen. "People are exhausted, you know, of the problem".

If this pans out to be accurate, it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of the president's phone screeners.

You can hear Trump's call with Melendez around 1:10:45 until 1:14:24.

"I'd like to do the larger solution, rather than the smaller solution", Trump said.

"I think that pretty much says it all", Paul remarked, imitating Stelter's motion of putting his head in his hands.

When the White House made inquiries with Mr Menendez's office about the conversation Mr Trump thought he had with him on Thursday, the senator's staff were befuddled, U.S. media report.

He did not specify what he was referring to, but New Jersey's Senator Menendez recently won his primary contest, after a hung jury spared him a conviction in a federal bribery case previous year.

One more and he will equal 1950 World Cup-winner Oscar Miguez's Uruguayan record of eight goals at the tournament. Edinson Cavani gave Uruguay the lead after just six minutes of play, heading home a Luis Suarez cross.


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, a Democrat who has been outspoken on immigration reform. "But they didn't ask me any of this", Mr Melendez told CNN.

'I have a good relationship with the party, you have a good relationship with the party, and I think we could do a real immigration bill.

'We have to have security at the border, we have to have it. It's unclear whether Melendez was being serious-like we said two paragraphs ago, he is a comedian and a prankster-but he spent 11 tweets furthering the storyline.

Connolly said he was surprised the call made it through to Trump and the President returned it, especially on Air Force One. You know what I'm saying?
