Ferrari's Fake Trump Report Terrifies Listeners
Nick Ferrari made a fake news report of what would happen if Donald Trump wins next week's election - and callers said it nearly gave them a heart attack.
As Mr Trump led in a key poll yesterday, Nick said: "Good morning. You're listening to Nick Ferrari live from New York and the election result is in. The unthinkable has become the reality. Donald Trump has become the President of the United States.
"It's official. Just squeaking home over Hillary Clinton. Here's Donald Trump's acceptance speech. Here's Hillary Clinton saying a sad farewell to her dreams.
"I'm making that up obviously. If that's what you hear me saying this time next week, or a little earlier actually, if this is what you hear me saying, what would your reaction be?"
Stephanie in Wimborne called up and was clearly in shock, saying: "Oh my gosh Nick, just hearing you say that again, it's giving me heart palpitations, I feel physically sick and I want to cry."
Hibo in Walthamstow added: "Oh my God, I nearly had a heart attack, Nick. I nearly had a heart attack. That man cannot be a President."
