Donald Trump gets swastika golf balls in Scotland

Swastika golf balls prankster removed by Donald Trump's bodyguards

By Lee Moran today:

Donald Trump is not getting the warm Scottish welcome he was hoping for.

The presumptive GOP presidential nominee arrived in Scotland on Friday to officially open his new Trump Turnberry golf resort. Protesters greeted him with golf balls emblazoned with Swastikas, a symbol of Nazi Germany, at the opening of the course. …

Dozens of Twitter users branded Trump a “moron,” “weapons-grade plum” and “idiot” — including British pop star Lily Allen, TV presenter Sue Perkins and comedian Peter Serafinowicz.

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.”

    DONALD TRUMP has become accustomed to being greeted by large crowds following his unlikely success in the US presidential campaign.

    But the billionaire Republican candidate won’t find the same fanatical support he has received during his divisive campaign when his private jet touches down in Scotland today.

    Hundreds are expected to stage a protest outside the Trump Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire that he is reopening after a £200 million refurbishment.

    Organisers say that Mr Trump, who has a Scottish mother, is unwelcome because of the “racism, Islamophobia and bigotry” he has incited during his presidential bid.

    Stand Up to Racism Scotland spokesman Keir McKechnie said: “His message of hate is one that we’ll challenge and we would not encourage anyone to support him in his presidency.

    “Although this protest happens to be taking place in Scotland, we want to represent people across the whole of the UK and beyond who reject Trump’s racism and Islamophobia.”

    Mr Trump has been snubbed by First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon and Westminster government ministers, who turned down invitations to the relaunch of the hotel where rooms start at £435-a-night.

    He will also be confronted by a frosty reception when he flies north to Aberdeenshire tomorrow to visit another smaller course he owns.

    Two of his neighbours have erected Mexican flags on their homes in protest against Mr Trump’s racist outbursts about migrants and plans to build a wall on the border with the country should he become president.

    Almost 587,000 people signed a petition calling for the billionaire to be banned from entering Britain.
