Donald Trump Inaugural Parade Begins

1/20/2017 11:52 AM PST
LIVE STREAM

Donald Trump is about to make the almost 2 mile-long trek down Pennsylvania Avenue for his inaugural parade, and we're streaming live as protests are breaking out just blocks away.

Trump is set to make his way to the White House from the US Capitol -- and while he has the option to walk it ... we're guessing he'll take a lift due to the unrest in nearby downtown D.C.

Obama rode most of the way during his first inaugural parade as well due to security concerns. Trump is likely to do the same.

update_graphic_red_barPresident Trump did opt to get out of the limo and do the ole walk for a few blocks ... along with the First Lady and their son, Barron.

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 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. 

Barack Obama POTUS Out!!!

1/20/2017 10:40 AM PST

Barack Obama gave one last wave goodbye as he boarded his helicopter after Donald Trump's inauguration.

It was an emotional moment for sure. 

TMZ broke the story, Michelle and Barack are headed to Palm Springs for 2 weeks R&R before they'll return to their new digs in D.C. so daughter Sasha can finish up school.

Ellen Page Gay Debate with Preacher ... Amid D.C. Protests

1/20/2017 10:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ellen Page got into a heated debate with a preacher over homosexuality ... and it all went down as chaos was building around them on the streets of Washington, D.C.

Ellen's in town for some inaugural events -- including the Women's March on Saturday -- but Friday outside the National Press Building she ended up going toe-to-toe, verbally, with a man of the cloth.

He labeled homosexuality "demonic," but Ellen kept her cool. She, at least, is there for peaceful debate.

Well played, Ellen.

Donald Trump Obama Watches Speech in Near Anguish

1/20/2017 9:26 AM PST

President Obama could not hide his disdain and President Donald Trump made his position clear ... the Obama administration did no favors to America.

Obama winces and arguably scoffs as Trump says the course of our nation will change from weakness to greatness.

After the speech, you see Obama perfunctorily tell Trump, "Good job," but Michelle cannot hide her contempt.

Prez Trump and Melania We're @POTUS and @FLOTUS Now

0120-new-potus-flotus-twitter

Twitter's official POTUS and FLOTUS handles have changed profile images to President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump

Twitter made the switch almost immediately after Trump was sworn in as the 45th Prez. Meanwhile, the Obamas are now @POTUS44 and @FLOTUS44.

This appears to be the first time in history Twitter's done this. Tweeting wasn't nearly as widespread in 2009, and @POTUS wasn't created until 2015.

Peaceful transition ... on social media. Just as the forefathers wanted it.

Donald Trump Takes the Oath ... Becomes 45th POTUS

1/20/2017 7:15 AM PST

Donald Trump was sworn in Friday as the 45th President of the United States at the U.S. Capitol.

The oath itself went off without a hitch ... however, Prez Trump's speech -- filled with images of an America in ruins -- seemed to rub the Obamas the wrong way. It was written all over their faces.

As for 16-year-old Jackie Evancho's 'Star Spangled Banner' -- flawless.  

Attendance wasn't quite the record-setter the new POTUS hoped it would be. Looks like Barack gets to hold on to his 2009 record ... which was estimated to be about 2 million.

Trump Protesters Clash Street Fight, Violence Breaking Out Near Inauguration

1/20/2017 8:02 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Anti-Trump protests are already getting violent -- we got this crazy video of a fight breaking out on a Washington, D.C. street, and a woman was assaulted ... just one block from the inauguration.

It's unclear what sparked the conflict, but it appears some Trump protesters pissed off a group of men walking past them ... then all hell broke loose. Radio host Alex Jones was nearby and shouted for cops as one of the men hit a female protester.

Officers responded quickly, but it's obvious it's going to be a tense day in Washington. We're already seeing roving groups of masked people destroying property.

The point of the rally ... to advocate for federal legalization of weed.

Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner Rabbi Gave Us a Shabbat Pass for Inauguration Friday Night

1/20/2017 9:45 AM PST

0120-ivanka-trump-Jared-Kushner-tmz-gettyIvanka Trump and hubby Jared Kushner got special permission from a rabbi to break from Orthodox Jewish laws that ban use of technology -- like cars -- on the very night they're celebrating Donald Trump's inauguration.

As you might know, the day of rest for Jews -- or the Sabbath -- begins at sundown Friday until sundown Saturday. During that time traveling by car is not allowed for followers of Orthodox doctrine.

But Ivanka and Jared got a pass for their own safety, as the rule of pikuach nefesh overrides other commandments in the Torah.

Ivanka, who converted, and Jared would obviously need a car to get around for her father's festivities around D.C. scheduled to go late into the night -- not just for convenience, but safety.

Century Plaza Hotel Insane Hollywood Themed Video Display

1/20/2017 11:16 AM PST

The city of Los Angeles got a sneak peek of the $2.5 billion Century Plaza Thursday night -- and it certainly made an impression -- with a video show that lit up the entire side of a building.

Josh Duhamel, Ellen Pompeo and Darren Criss -- to name a few -- showed up for the unveiling. Industry sources say the presentation alone hovered right around $1 million to put on ... the hotel, brought together by visionary real estate developer Michael Rosenfeld, is set to open in 2018.

As for those rumors former Pussy Cat Doll Nicole Scherzinger will take Fergie's place in The Black Eyed Peas? We asked Josh ... but somethin' tells us he just doesn't care.
