1/20/2017 8:27 PM PST

0120-inauguration-liberty-ball-GETTY-01President Trump and First Lady Melania had a busy night ... attending 3 Inaugural Balls, schmoozing and dancing.

The Liberty and Freedom balls at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center were up first before they hit The Salute To Our Armed Services Ball at the National Building Museum.

Performers included Sam Moore, The Rockettes, Tim Rushlow and The Piano Guys.

The POTUS and FLOTUS shared their first dance to Frank Sinatra's "My Way" sung by three Nashville singers.

President Trump & Melania The First Dance

1/20/2017 6:43 PM PST

President Donald Trump & First Lady Melania Trump just shared their first dance ... and did it their way.

They hit the dance floor to Frank Sinatra's "My Way" at Friday's Liberty Ball courtesy of Nashville based singers Erin Boehme, Nickie Conley and Jason Eskridge belted the tune.

As the song went on, they were joined by Mike Pence and his wife ... and then more and more of their family members ... we're told it was a totally organic moment.

Trump's got a busy night ahead -- starting at the Liberty and Freedom Balls at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center -- before heading to The Salute To Our Armed Services Ball down the street.

Scheduled performers were The Radio City Rockettes, Sam Moore and The Piano Guys.

Talk about a long day.

Shia LaBeouf Listen Up, Prez Trump ... You Will Not Divide Us

1/20/2017 4:02 PM PST

update_graphic_red_bar5:00 PM PST -- Shia called it a night ... but the stream's still going strong with random people now leading the chant. update_grey_gray_barShia LaBeouf has a 4 year plan, and we're pretty sure his point is -- President Trump will not divide us.

On the day Trump took office, Shia launched the most interesting protest we've seen yet. It's a live stream of Shia leading the chant, "He will not divide us" ... as people around him repeat the words.

He's been doing it over and over and over and over and over and ...

Well, just watch. It's unclear how long he can keep this up -- he says the stream will be live as long as Trump is Prez. This could become the most dangerous drinking game ever.

If you want to join him, Shia's set up outside the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC.

A rare L.A. downpour didn't stop the wave of Trump hate flooding through downtown streets, and the displays ranged from insightful to angry to hysterical.

Unlike the protests in Washington, D.C., there was no violence, and as of 3:15 PM PST ... zero arrests. 

The Hollywood-types let their signs do most of the talking.

'Flip or Flop' Dominates NBA as King of Ratings

1/20/2017 4:07 PM PST

0120-flip-or-flop-happy-HGTV-01We don't do ratings stories but this is interesting ... "Flip or Flop" -- despite the off-screen drama from its hosts -- annihilated Thursday's cable TV lineup to win the ratings game.

The show snagged more than 2 million viewers. #2 was an NBA game that scored 1.4 million viewers. The other NBA game was #3 at 1.2 mil.

It's definitely good news for Tarek and Christina El Moussa. Lots of people thought their TV gooses were cooked now that they're getting unhitched.  

We're told the network's mulling over whether to bring back the show for another season but clearly conflict and angst are good for business.

Donald Trump Mysterious Inauguration Misstep By Soldiers

1/20/2017 2:54 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump's inaugural speech did not go off without a hitch -- there was a clear fumble by the military -- but everyone's clammed up.

Trump began speaking and a minute and a half later, 8 men in uniform walk the steps and flank the prez from behind.

You see in the video, they stand motionless for 40 seconds when another man in uniform appears, clearly whispers something to the effect of, "We gotta get outta here STAT," and they quickly leave.

We've made a ton of calls to the military and no one's giving us an answer. Several of the people we spoke with say it was clearly a misstep for the guys to come out, but they won't say how it happened.

One of the last people we spoke with simply said, "No one's saying anything."

The Obamas Their Last Presidential-ish Flight

1/20/2017 2:50 PM PST

0120-barack-michelle-obama-final-flight-palm-springs-INSTAGRAM-01Barack and Michelle Obama had good friends waiting to join them for their last ride in the lap of Air Force One-ish luxury.

Obama's ambassador to Spain, James Costos, posted a pic from inside the jet, watching the now former prez and First Lady walking the red carpet to climb aboard. Looks like they snacked on grapes.

Giving Costos a ride is the least they could do. As we first reported ... the Obamas are heading to the Palm Springs home of Costos and his husband, Michael Smith, who's been the White House decorator.

0120-obama-palm-springs-home-vacation-SPLASH-02FUN FACT: Obama's ride is no longer designated Air Force One -- not since Trump took the oath, anyway. It's official call letters are SAM (Special Air Mission) 28000.

Same perks, different name.

Jackie Evancho had plenty of butterflies right before she sang the national anthem at Donald Trump's inauguration, but walked away so pumped ... she's ready for several encores.

We talked to Jackie moments after she NAILED "The Star Spangled Banner" and she explained her range of emotions through the experience. She got a thumbs up from the new prez.

That's just the beginning for the 16-year-old who says she'd lock down inaugurations as her thing.

Donald Trump Inauguration Protesters Won't Go Hungry Behind Bars

1/20/2017 1:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-prisoner-dinner-in-jail-tmz-gettyProtests are raging on in Washington D.C. where, so far, more than 90 people have been arrested ... but when it comes to meals, they might wish they protested in a different city.

We got the menu for several jails in the major U.S. cities where protests are either underway or scheduled to begin later Friday. Here's what the jailbirds will get: 

Washington D.C.:
Lunch: Bologna and cheese sandwich
Dinner: Cod fish, sweet potatoes, mixed veggies, biscuits and fudge brownies

NYC:
Lunch: Ground turkey, fried rice, green beans, carrots and celery, whole wheat bread, fresh fruit and lemonade fruit drink
Dinner: Bake battered fish, tartar sauce, lyonnaise potatoes, mixed vegetables, whole wheat bread, margarine, apple fruit drink and hot tea

L.A.:
Lunch: Bologna sandwich and an apple
Dinner: Salisbury steak and steamed veggies

Obviously, all jail kitchens aren't created equal.

Rioting. It works up an appetite. And don't forget ... protesters can also get free legal advice once they get out.

Donald Trump Inaugural Parade

1/20/2017 11:52 AM PST

0120-trump-parade-launch

Donald Trump made the almost 2 mile-long trek down Pennsylvania Avenue for his inaugural parade, as protests were breaking out just blocks away.

The Prez and First Lady remained in their limo for much of the Inaugural Parade -- from the Capitol to the White House -- but did opt to walk a few blocks of the route ... flanked by Secret Service.

Once outside their new home, they kicked back to view the rest of the show. Considering the violence that went on in Washington, D.C. today ... the parade was pretty damn smooth.

Donald Trump Autographed Baseball Prices Skyrocket

1/20/2017 12:04 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-donald-trump-signed-baseball-tmz-sportsForget Bryce Harper and Mike Trout ... one of the most valuable autographs you can get on a baseball right now is Donald Trump

We spoke with multiple sports memorabilia experts who tell us the value of a Trump signed baseball used to be around $100 ($200 tops) ... now, it's worth around $1,000 depending on the quality of the signature. 

Both Brandon Steiner of Steiner Sports and Joe Coppola of Sports Integrity say the fact Trump is now president makes his autograph much more collectible ... and therefore valuable. 

"There's a big market for presidential collectibles," Steiner tells us. 

So, where does Trump's autograph rank among other presidents?

A Barack Obama ball sold for $1,485 in 2013 ... according to GoldinAuctions

They also sold a George H.W. Bush ball for $800. 

George W. Bush went for $787. 

Jimmy Carter fetched $674. 

Bill Clinton's ball went for $500. 

A Ronald Reagan ball got $3,300. 

And get this ... GoldinAuctions tells us a Hillary Clinton signed ball went for $3,062 back in August.
