Comedian who pranked Trump with phone call claims late night visit from Secret Service — and now he’s on the run

Published

on

The comedian who pulled a prank on Donald Trump and duped the president into returning his call, live tweeted on Twitter Friday night that the Secret Service came to his door to talk to him, but that he refused to answer and now he claims he’s on ‘the lam.”

John Melendez, the former Howard Stern sidekick known as “Stuttering John,” launched a series of tweets making the claim, which given his history as a prankster, could also be an elaborate prank on on his followers or a publicity stunt while he’s national news. It also seems curious that the Secret Service would wait so late at night to visit, so his claims should be taken with a grain of salt.

Nonetheless, he started off by tweeting, “Secret Service at my door. I guess my old friend Donald wants to continue this. Stay tuned.”

He then added, “Sectret [sic] service about to arrest me. Unbelievable! They should arrest Jared Kushner for putting the call through, shame on Donald Trump who has been a friend of mine for years.”

Melendez then claimed that he refused to answer his door, but that his neighbors told him his visitors “said they showed their badges.” He also stated that high profile attorney Michael Avenatti — who is representing adult actress Stormy Daniels — ” has agreed to consider repping me,” although the never publicity-shy Avenatti has yet to tweet anything affirming the claim.

Below are Melendez’s tweets in chronological order.

Published

CNN anchor Don Lemon explained how witnesses called by Republicans in the impeachment inquiry destoryed the defenses employed by President Donald Trump and his allies.

"Now, let's just be honest, the shakedown -- that's exactly what it is -- the shakedown is exposed, people," Lemon said.

"And the evidence comes from the Republican's own witnesses," he noted. "The former envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker -- who resigned just one day after the release of the whistleblower's report -- telling the president's defenders exactly what they did not want to hear."

"They called him apparently expecting him to say what he said in his closed-door testimony, that he saw no evidence of a quid pro quo, or let's call it for what it is again -- a shakedown," he continued. "Well, now he says he was wrong."

Every person who testified before Congress has said that Trump's obsession with Joe Biden was concerning enough to alert others. Even National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn’t believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) asked him why then he felt the need to report it if there was nothing wrong, Morrison struggled to find an answer.
