Hilarious Prankster Brings Swastika Golf Balls To Trump Event

The most presidential part of his UK trip.

The best part of Trump's visit to Scotland? It was definitely an unexpected guest who interrupted his Turnberry Golf Course grand-reopening speech. However, this prankster was hardly invited.

Meet the British comedian who's famous for his stunt at a FIFA press conference. Last year, he crashed the conference and went up to former FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, and tried to hand him a fake wad of money. His name is Simon Brodkin, a prankster with some memorable moments, who started out by making mischief and is now, making headlines. He sometimes goes by the alias, Lee Nelson.

But today's triumph was all about Herr Drumpf. In the posted video, you can see Nelson step in, right as Trump gets to the podium, and Secret Service surrounds him almost immediately. Despite the security, you can still hear him say something quite hilarious as he holds up the package of red golf balls, each adorned with a swastika.

They're the new balls available from the clubhouse, the hot, new Turnberry range, and I forgot to hand them out, Sorry Mr. Trump.

He's quickly whisked away but, somehow, he manages to scatter the balls all over the grass, making the security detail get down on their hands and knees and pick them up as fast as they could.

Brodkin is a gutsy comedian and prankster who has a history of daring stunts.

A month before the FIFA stunt, Kanye West’s headline set at the Glastonbury Festival was interrupted by none other than Lee Nelson. Keep up the good work Nelson/Brodkin. We look forward to your next prank.
