Swastika Golf Balls Might Be The Perfect Thing To Hit At A Trump Course

Too bad they were just a prank.

Trump has found his boogeyman. 

Or, more accurately, a bogey man found Trump. On Friday morning, during a press conference at one of his Scottish golf courses, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was interrupted by a man wearing a Trump Turnberry sweater, who began handing out red golf balls emblazoned with swastikas.

"These are the new balls available from the clubhouse, part of the new Trump Turnberry range, and I forgot to hand them out before," the man told the gathered crowd. He was later identified as comedian Lee Nelson (real name: Simon Brodkin).

"I'm very sorry, Mr. Trump," Brodkin said, apologizing for his sub-par (and fake) job performance as security attempted to shuffle him away.

Trump responded with only five words: "Get him out. Thank you."

Another protester raised a Mexican flag along the border of Trump's other Scottish course, highlighting the candidate's divisive promise to "build a wall" separating the U.S. from its southern neighbor:

Brodkin has made high-profile stunts a regular part of his routine.

Last July, he interrupted a press conference for Sepp Blatter to shower the embattled FIFA president with fake dollar bills. The comedian told Blatter -- who was later suspended from his job for corruption -- "Sepp, this is for North Korea in 2026."
