An English comedian handed out golf balls with swastikas during a Donald Trump event at his Scottish golf course Friday morning.
The presumptive Republican nominee was visiting his Turnberry golf course for its reopening, an overseas trip that gave him a brief break from campaigning, when London comedian Lee Nelson, wearing a gray “Trump Turnberry” pullover, interrupted him to toss out red golf balls emblazoned with the Nazi symbol.
Trump then ordered security to “get him out.”
Nelson, whose real name is Simon Brodkin, is well-known on the British stand-up circuit and television, especially for this kind of publicity stunt. He has interrupted then-FIFA President Sepp Blatter at an event to throw money at him and stormed the stage at a Kanye West concert.
On Twitter, Nelson later took credit for the stunt.
