Pete Davidson Says Donald Trump Faked A Phone Call During 'SNL' Rehearsals

Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson shared that Donald Trump faked a phone call during a table read in 2015

It seems an inspired "Saturday Night Live" skit.

Journalists and "several of Trump's top aides" told the Post those braggadocious calls were in fact made by the billionaire real estate mogul. And the captive audience was the staff at "SNL".

In an interview with Complex, SNL cast member Pete Davidson told a story about President Donald Trump, who apparently faked a weird phone call during rehearsals for the show.

During his sit-down with host Peter Rosenberg, Davidson describes a weird incident that occurred in the days leading up to then-candidate Trump's hosting gig. "Oh, fantastic. OK, great". OK great.' And then he hung up and he goes, 'Hey, everybody!

He said'Right as we started he's like
He said'Right as we started he's like"Hello… oh fantastic. Okay great. And then he hung up and he goes"Hey everybody my book just went No. 1

Davidson pointed out the phone never actually rung, and that the bloke didn't even leave enough time between picking the phone up and responding to actually hear the "news" his book topped a list. "My book just went No. 1!' I swear on my life", Davidson said.

According to Davidson - whose impression is subtle but pretty damn good - Trump picked up a phone that didn't even ring.

"During the table read, [Trump] stopped the table read in the middle the sketch to take a three-minute phone call to hear about his book becoming number one and announced it to everybody at the time", Taran Killam told Larry King previous year. Show alum Taran Killam recalled it a little differently when he appeared on "Larry King Now" in October 2017, saying that the call came in the middle of the table reading and lasted three minutes.

"It wasn't fun", he said.
