A shock-jock comedian overruled in President Air Trump's Air Force One after pretending to be a Democratic senator claimed on Saturday that he had been visited by the Secret Service after his prank went public
Comedian John Melendez of "The Stuttering John" podcast posted on Thursday his conversation with the President, where Melendez claimed Sen. Bob Menendez, DN.J. The two seem to have spoken while Trump flies back with North Dakota's Air Force One.
A senior White House official refused to inform Fox News about the appeal, citing security issues.
But Melendez tweeted that on Saturday he was visited by the Secret Service, though he said he did not open the door.
"Intelligence at my door, I guess my old friend Donald wants to continue that," he tweeted. "Stay tuned."
Later he said he was in a secret place.
The alleged visit comes as Politico reports that the White House is trying to find out how the prank caller Trump has leashed.
During the podcast, Melendez made his call to the White House Attendant, claiming he needed to speak with the president immediately about the upcoming legislation.
He reached several White House operators before being told that the President would call him back. According to the comic, White House Advisor Jared Kushner returned the call and linked him to Trump.
"Hi, Bob!" Is that the voice called Trump when he picks up the phone, obviously from Air Force One?
He referred to the misconduct in the high-profile bribery case against Menendez last year, suggesting that he sympathized with the democrat Senator's case.
"Congratulations on everything," he said. "We are proud of you You have a tough, difficult situation behind you and I do not think it is a very fair situation, but congratulations."
The couple also discussed issues ranging from illegal immigration to the replacement of Judge Anthony Kennedy at the Supreme Court. Trump told Melendez that he intended to make a decision "in the next two weeks."
On his Twitter account, Melendez cursed Trump for allegedly having more to do with him than the staff responsible for the botch.
"Okay, I guess Donald is more concerned about making this legal than dismissing his screeners," he tweeted
