Comedian Pretends to Be New Jersey Senator in Prank Call to President Trump
Did comedian John Melendez prank call the president? He says he pulled off a prank by telling The White House operator he was New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez, who was acquitted of corruption charges earlier this year. Melendez posed as the senator and actually got through to Trump as he was flying back to Washington from a rally in North Dakota on Air Force One. He says he got a call from Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who was with the president on Air Force One.
