Prank caller talks to Trump aboard Air Force One

U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez talks to reporters in the Foreign Relations Committee conference room

The White House is investigating how a call from a comedian was connected to President Trump as he was traveled on Air Force One.

President Trump ought to be ashamed of how easy it is for anyone - maybe even the Russians - to infiltrate the White claims "Stuttering John" Melendez who says he did exactly that.

Melendez managed to pull off this hoax by calling up The White House last week and pretending to be the similarly-named Democratic Senator Robert Menendez.

Melendez claimed he got yet another call within 20 minutes, patching him through to Mr. Trump aboard Air Force One.

After a bit of back and forth, and a few stretched truths, Melendez is then called back by Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who asks what he wants to speak with the President about.

The recorded conversation with the owner of the White house Melendez has uploaded to your podcast. After being satisfied that the call will discuss matters of immigration and policy, Kushner gives Melendez the go-ahead, and the two are soon engaged in a brief conversation.

The comedian said in an interview with "Inside Edition" after the call that he was unaware of Sen.

Furthermore, this was England's maiden success in a World Cup penalty shoot-out. "It was a nervous one", Dier said. Everyone seems to know the score; we've seen it all before.

The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Melendez said that when he arrived home, neighborhood kids told him the Secret Service had been banging on his door. The president congratulated him on the Justice Department's dismissal of corruption charges against him, discussed immigration and his next Supreme Court pick, and bragged about the North Dakota rally from which he was returning.

That apparently worked. The White House, Melendez said, took the call, and called him back on his cell.

The comedian told TMZ on Sunday that he was scheduled for a meeting with the Secret Service on Monday. A source familiar says Melendez reached out to Avenatti about possible representation, but nothing has been formalized.

Melendez also confirmed that he's hired Michael Avenatti, the attorney best known for representing Stormy Daniels.

Melendez released audio in which he appears to be talking to the president. He asked what he could tell them was being done.
