Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais got political while introducing presenters Eva Longoria and America Ferrera, joking that “future president Donald Trump” wants to deport them. Ferrera was born in Los Angeles and Longoria was born in Corpus Christi, Texas.

But the Latina actresses had the last laugh, dropping the buzziest diss against racism in Hollywood with a brief exchange before presenting the award for Best Actor in a Drama Series.

“Yes, hi, I’m Eva Longoria, not Eva Mendes,” Longoria said.

“Hi, I’m America Ferrera, not Gina Rodriguez,” Ferrera said, referencing tweets from the Golden Globes Twitter account that identified her as Rodriguez during the nominations announcement.

“And neither one of us are Rosario Dawson,” Longoria said, to which Ferrera replied “Nope.”

“Well said, Salma,” Ferrera said, referring to Mexican actress Salma Hayek.

“Thank you, Charo,” Longoria said, name-dropping the singer and actress from 1970s TV shows including “The Love Boat” and “The Carol Burnett Show.”

Viewers quickly took to Twitter to suggest that the pair co-host the Golden Globes next year.
