Chicago West Twitter Handle's Taken ... But Owner Would Hand it Over

1/20/2018 12:41 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West might have another baby gift coming their way soon ... all they have to do is ask.

Jon Wyatt -- a grain trader and farmer who owns the Twitter handle @Chicagowest -- tells TMZ ... he's willing to hand it over to Kim and Kanye for their new baby girl if they want it, because selling it "just kind of seems wrong."

We're told so far, the couple hasn't reached out to Jon about his Twitter account ... nor has anyone else.

As for why Wyatt has the @Chicagowest handle ... he says his name was taken when he signed up for Twitter, and he'd just decided to leave Chicago and move out west to the mountains. Makes sense.

Kim and Kanye revealed their baby's name is Chicago -- Kanye's hometown -- on Friday, but she's already going by the nickname Chi (Shy).

Jon tweeted out his congrats.

Women's March 2018 Back At It ... With Even More Vigor

1/20/2018 11:42 AM PST

Women’s March demonstrations are taking place all across America this weekend, and the second annual event is packed with more passion and power ... as the movement has only grown and evolved over the past year.

Marches are being held in New York, D.C., Chicago, L.A., Atlanta, Philly and even in Rome Saturday on the anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration. Much like 2017, women are speaking out against the Prez, but are also advocating for fair treatment, equal pay, and to end sexual misconduct and harassment amid the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.

In L.A., several leading ladies delivered emotional speeches to the crowd ... like Viola Davis, Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson.

Other celebs marching Saturday include Alyssa MilanoAsia Argento, Eva Longoria, Whoopi Goldberg, Halsey, Yoko Ono, and many others.

Despite being one of its main focuses of criticism, Trump called attention to the Women's March ... saying it's a perfect day to "celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation" of his presidency.

Pretty sure he missed the point.

EXCLUSIVE

Al Michaels thinks the Pats have what it takes to beat the Jags and make it to another Super Bowl ... with or without their legendary quarterback.

We got one of the voices of 'Sunday Night Football' at Madeo Restaurant in Weho Friday night, and talked shop about some NFL matters. Al suggests it's no sure thing Tom Brady plays Sunday due to his hand injury, but even if he's out New England can prevail ... because there's no 'Tom' in 'team.'

Michaels also chats with us about Brady's former backup, Jimmy Garoppolo, and says he'll be happy for whoever replaces Jon Gruden in the booth for 'MNF' ... as long as it's not his 'SNF' partner.

Kanye West threw a party in honor of Damon Dash's new movie -- in which Kanye's an executive producer -- and a bunch of celebs were there ... but definitely not Jay-Z.

As you know ... Kanye and Jay haven't spoken in a long time, and Dame and Jay-Z were once biz partners but had a major falling out -- but it looks like it's all good between Kanye and Dash.

Donald Trump Weirdly Jokes About Government Shutdown

1/20/2018 6:46 AM PST

You'd think President Trump would be solemn the day the federal government shut down over a budget impasse, but instead he used his favorite platform to use jokes laced with sarcasm to describe his feelings.

Trump tweeted, "This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats want to give me a nice present." He also screamed, "#AMERICA FIRST!"

He's using the shutdown to push Republicans in this year's elections, saying "#WeNeedMoreRepublicans18 in order to power through mess."

What he didn't address is how he's going turn the lights back on.  

Kanye West Chicago Makes Me Smile!!!

1/20/2018 7:15 AM PST

Kanye West is basking in the glow of naming his daughter.

Kanye was all smiles Friday in Calabasas as he arrived at his design studio. As we reported, Kanye and Kim named their newborn Chicago, although they immediately decided she'd be known as Chi.

Kanye and Kim didn't pick the name before their daughter was born, presumably because they wanted to eyeball her and see if her face triggered a name.

Kanye was raised in Chicago and still has deep roots there, so it makes a lot of sense.

Donald Trump Whatever He Touches (Or Eats) Turns to Gold ... On Wall Street

1/20/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

In case you haven't heard -- especially from him -- Donald Trump's first year in office has been great for the stock market ... but 3 companies in particular have benefited bigly from their association with the Prez.

TMZ did some research, and found that the stock price of McDonald's -- which Trump loves to eat, Twitter -- which Trump loves to tweet, and KFC -- another fast food favorite ... have all seen huge gains since he became president on January 20, 2017.

Mickey D's has seen the biggest boost so far during Trump's time in office -- its stock has risen 44% over the past year.

Twitter's close behind with a 42% increase, and many argue the Prez's usage of the social media platform is keeping it in business.

Yum! Brands, which owns KFC, has also seen a substantial 29% increase.

As we reported, Trump's physical this week "went exceptionally well" ... but he did discuss dieting with his doctor.

Gotta think 2 of these companies are rooting against that.
