Ricky Gervais takes a vicious shot at Trump's immigration policy at Golden Globes

Eva Longoria and America Ferrera took the crack as it was meant to be taken -- and built on it

Ricky Gervais used the 73rd Annual Golden Globes much as you'd expect him to -- to say whatever he damn well pleased, which included taking a shot at "America's future president," Donald Trump.

"Eva Longoria and America Ferrera aren't just two beautiful, talented actresses," he said, "they're also two people your future president, Donald Trump, can't wait to deport."

Instead of taking offense at the remark, the actresses used the opportunity to discuss the representation of minorities in general, and Latinas and Latinos in particular, in the entertainment industry.
