Kyle Sandilands speaks to his ‘hero’ Donald Trump live on air – before receiving devastating news











Radio host Kyle Sandilands’ love and appreciation for former U.S. president Donald Trump is no secret.

And when he was given the opportunity to speak to his ‘hero’ on air on Wednesday, the 50-year-old did not pass up the chance.

He had just interviewed former White Hosue aide and Big Brother VIP star Omarosa Manigault Newman when he was told she had passed on Trump’s personal phone number.

The shock jock eagerly dialled the number as co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson told him not to get his hopes up in case it wasn’t him or the number wasn’t in service.

But the call rang through and a Trump-esque voice asked: ‘Hello, who is this?’

A stunned Kyle kept composed as he heaped praise on Trump and said he’d been ‘flying the Trump flag’ in Australia for years.

He even said it would be ‘the greatest day’ of his life if the former president were to visit Sydney.

Just as Trump was about to discuss his upcoming social media platform, Jackie interrupted: ‘I can’t. I can’t do this. Sorry, Kyle. Only lying!’

All the producers burst into laughter as Jackie explained it was simply a prank and that ‘we thought you would never fall for it’.

The person on the phone was a Donald Trump impersonator, she said.

Kyle has previously fallen for similar pranks, including when he was tricked into thinking he was speaking to Barack Obama when it was just an impersonator. 

An embarrassed Kyle said: ‘You know why I fell for it? Because I want it to be true so bad.’

‘I’m so sorry. I really was a bit opposed to it this time,’ said Jackie, feeling guilty.

‘Now there’s going to a whole year of stories again where I look foolish again,’ Kyle groaned, referring to the inevitable media coverage of the prank.

‘I just can’t believe I fell for it again, because I wanted it to be real,’ he added.
