Donald Trump was left unimpressed when a British prankster hijacked his speech with Nazi golf balls at the re-opening of the billionaire’s golf resort.
The US presidential candidate was about to take to the podium at his Turnberry resort when comedian Lee Nelson interrupted and began giving out balls to the crowd.
Trump could be heard telling his security guards “get him out” as Nelson, real name Simon Brodkin, began speaking to the gathered members of the press.
Nelson, who appears to be wearing the Turnberry uniform, could be heard jokingly saying: “The new balls are available from the clubhouse as part of a new Trump Turnberry range.
“I forgot to hand them out before, I’m very sorry Mr Trump, and thank you, I apologise.”
As he was being dragged away, he told the crowd: “If you want you can hand them out, they are available as part of the new Trump range.”
A heap of red swastika golf balls could be seen lying on the floor in front of the billionaire after Nelson was removed. …
Earlier this year Nelson, who also uses the stage name Jason Bent, took the mickey out of the VW emissions scandal at high profile car launch.
Dressed in a VW mechanic’s jumpsuit, he jumped up on stage as the new car was unveiled and – in a German accent – said: “No one’s going to find out about this one”.
In July last year he famously ran up to Blatter during a FIFA press conference and handed him a wad of fake dollar bills.
He then threw more money into the air above the 79-year-old and said: “Sepp, this is for North Korea in 2026.”
Security, who were slow to react, eventually hauled Brodkin off stage, at which point he added: “Cheers, Sepp – it’s all there.”
