Prank caller talks to Trump aboard Air Force One

-

WASHINGTON (AFP) — A prank caller talking to the leader of the world’s most powerful country aboard Air

Force One? It’s apparently possible. Posing as New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, comedian John Melendez said he contacted US President Donald Trump Wednesday night while he was on the presidenti­al plane.

Melendez aired a recording of the conversati­on on his “The Stuttering John Podcast,” in which a voice that appears to be Trump’s can be heard.

“You went through a tough, tough situation and I don’t think a very fair situation,” he told the “senator,” who was investigat­ed for corruption before the charges were eventually dropped.

The two men then continued their conversati­on, moving from immigratio­n to replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is set to retire from the US Supreme Court.
