(FNN) – Trump announced on Twitter his congratulatory call from the president of Taiwan saying, “The President of Taiwan CALLED ME today to wish me congratulations on winning the Presidency. Thank you!”
What Trump didn’t know is that it was local bar owner and political satirist Joe Beertap who called. In a statement to his bar regulars, Joe said, “Yeah, that was me! He passed out at the bar one night and that’s how I got his mobile number.”
Joe went outside with his beer and made the call. “I kept bursting out laughing. I don’t know how he didn’t get he was being pranked. What a dumbass!”
Reporters have reached out to Trump’s team for comment but they have yet to respond.
