Comedians disrupt Donald Trump visit

With Nazi golf balls and sweary banners

Comedians Lee Nelson and Janey Godley have disrupted Donald Trump’s visit to Scotland today.

Nelson, who has a reputation for high-profile pranks, was led away by two burly security men as he tried to interrupted the Presidential hopeful’s speech on ITV News.

And Godley was told by police not to brandish a banner saying ‘Trump is a c**t’ as he flew in to his Turnberry resort.

Trump was trying to make a speech about Britain’s decision to leave the EU when Nelson’s creator Simon Brodkin appeared holding two golf balls emblazoned with swastikas.

Trump responded by saying: ‘Get him out!’ while a man in the crowd was heard to say: ‘Go and get a job and a haircut’ – although Brodkin was wearing a wig.

Brokin’s previous stunts include gatecrashing Kanye West’s set at Glastonbury and showering Fifa president Sepp Blatter with fake money.
