British comedian Lee Nelson interrupted Donald Trump on Friday as the real estate tycoon was speaking during a press conference marking the reopening of his golf course in Scotland.

Nelson, whose real name is Simon Brodkin, was wearing a Trump Turnberry sweater and threw golf balls emblazoned with the Nazi swastika on the ground in front of the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, saying he “forgot to hand them out,” as if Trump had requested he do so.

“I’m very sorry, Mr. Trump, I thank you and I apologize,” the comedian said as several burly security agents moved in.

Nelson held up one of the  balls up to the crowd and said they were “available in the clubhouse as part of a new Trump Turnberry range.”

“Get him out,” Trump can be heard saying in the video.

Nelson posted a video of the incident on Facebook, along with the caption: “Sorry for the delay giving out the balls you ordered Mr Trump…”

The candidate commented on Britain voting to leave the European Union, saying it’s a “great thing” that the people of the United Kingdom have “‘taken back their country.”

He also said if the British pound takes a tumble because of this, it could help his golf course, according to The Hill.

“Look, if the pound goes down, they’re going to do more business,” Trump said. “When the pound goes down, more people are coming to Turnberry.”
