According to the report, when White House officials followed up with an inquiry to Senator Menendez's office about the conversation with the president they were met with confusion, with the senator's aides not aware of any conversation having taken place.

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez. Bob Menendez has "chilling" implications, Rep. Gerry Connolly said. Eventually, Jared Kushner (Ivanka Trump's husband and senior advisor to Trump) supposedly called Melendez back to put him in contact with the president.

"I find it astounding that the news media's not picking up the fact that I totally duped the President & got in touch within in less than 2 hours while he was on Air Force One", tweeted Melendez.

Veteran performer John Melendez, who regularly appears on Howard Stern and Jay Leno's shows, published a podcast that includes a recording of a three-minute conversation during which he pretended to be Senator Robert Menendez.

Asked about the families that had been separated at the border under Trump's "zero tolerance" policy on illegal immigration, the president said he was hoping to bring Democrats and Republicans together on a comprehensive legislative solution. He adds, "I'd like to do the larger solution rather than the smaller solution; they're doing them step by step".

He reached several White House operators before being told the president would call him back.

"Shame on Donald Trump who has been a friend of mine for years", he tweeted.

"I just pulled the immigration thing out of my ass", Melendez said afterward. "But they didn't ask me any of this", Melendez told CNN.

And Trump told Melendez that he would make a pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in 12 to 14 days. "I'll probably make it over the next couple of weeks", the president, apparently, responds to Melendez.

It's always good to know that the White House is an extremely functional, well-oiled machine.

Alright I guess Donald is more concerned with pursuing this legally as opposed as to firing his screening staff.
