Bishop Michael Curry Love is the Way, Prez Trump!! God Hears Us, Do You?

5/24/2018 10:37 PM PDT
Breaking News

The Holy Spirit came a knocking for President Trump Thursday night ... in the form of royal wedding preacher Bishop Michael Curry.

The standout star of Prince Harry and Meghan's big day was part of a candlelight vigil in the Capitol that included prayer and song outside the White House. The Bishop told us their goal was spreading a message of "love of God and love of neighbor."

We asked him the $64 million question -- was POTUS paying attention? Bishop Curry assured us a high power was definitely listening to their prayers.

The Bishop's become a bit of an international rockstar since the royal wedding, and he's clearly striking while the iron's hot ... taking his message straight to the leader of the free world. Still, he made it clear the vigil was NOT about politics.

Sure, he had 600 wedding guests and a TV audience of millions believing "love is the way" -- but if he can make DC politicians buy it, we might have a new leader in the clubhouse for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Breaking News

Aaron Schlossberg, the attorney whose threats against Spanish-speaking restaurant employees went viral ... was the target of a suspicious white powder delivered to his office.

FDNY was called to his Madison Avenue law firm office where a spokesperson described the scene as a "hazardous materials" situation. The obvious fear is anthrax. At least one person was checked out on the scene, but no one's been transported for medical care ... according to Newsweek.

Schlossberg was reportedly not at the office when the envelope arrived. NYPD has taken over investigating the powder.

Peaceful protesters flocked to his apartment building last week, and blared Spanish language music while serving tacos and tequila shots.

Schlossberg eventually apologized, claiming he's not racist and loves immigrants.

Kanye West Paid $85k for Whitney Houston Bathroom Pic ... Says Pusha T

Breaking News

Kanye West apparently threw down $85k for a photo of Whitney Houston's drug-ridden bathroom that'll now be the cover of Pusha T's new album, "Daytona."

Pusha T told Angie Martinez in an interview Wednesday that his original album art was canned at the last minute in favor of a photo West licensed for the obscene amount of money. Pusha said that Ye put his own cash down on it too since they'd already agreed on something else previously -- telling Push, “This is what people need to see to go along with this music.”

"Daytona" drops Friday, but the artwork was released Thursday.

As for the final cover image ... it's a photo of the bathroom in Whitney's home, taken in 2006 after an alleged drug binge. The room was littered with paraphernalia like a crack-smoking pipe, spoons, white powder, and booze -- which can all be seen in the photo. Ya just gotta look closely.

5/24/2018 8:36 AM PDT
Breaking News

9:45 AM PT -- Freeman tells TMZ ... “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”Morgan Freeman is being accused of sexual harassment or misconduct by 8 women over several years on the sets of his movies ... or during media events related to his projects.

One of the allegations comes from a production assistant who worked on Freeman's movie in 2015, "Going In Style." She told CNN Morgan repeatedly tried to lift up her skirt to see if she was wearing underwear, and commented on her figure. She says costar Alan Arkin saw it happening and told Freeman to stop.

Another woman who worked on "Now You See Me" claims Freeman also made comments about her body as well as another female staffer's. She says women on set knew to cover up whenever he was around.

CNN reporter Chloe Melas said she too was subject to Freeman's misconduct ... when she was 6 months pregnant and interviewing him during a media junket. Melas claims Freeman told her she looked ripe, and repeatedly insinuated he wished he'd been there when she got pregnant.

In all, CNN says it spoke to 16 people -- 8 who claim they were victims, and 8 who witnessed Freeman's misconduct.

Richie Incognito Claimed to Be NSA Agent ... Cops Say

5/24/2018 11:19 AM PDT
Breaking News

Richie Incognito was suffering an "altered, paranoid state" when confronted by police at a Florida gym ... "and believed ordinary citizens were government officials that were tracking him."

That's just one part of the disturbing police report describing the bizarre events at Lifetime Fitness in Boca Raton, Florida on May 23. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... cops were called to the gym when another patron said the NFL lineman snapped and attacked him with a dumbbell

When cops arrived, they asked Incognito what was going on and his answer was troubling.

"There's a guy walking around with headphones on," Incognito said ... "I'm running NSA class level 3 documents through my phone. I can't have anybody in blue tooth capability of me or taking pictures of me."

The officer says he asked Incognito why the government was trying to watch him and Richie told the cop he didn't have high enough clearance. 

When pressed by officers, Incognito told a nearby woman to call the FBI. 

Cops ultimately decided to detain Incognito for an involuntary psychiatric hold -- but, due to his large frame, they decided to cuff him in two sets of handcuffs linked together. 

He was transported to a nearby mental health facility for evaluation. 

As we previously reported, several people close to Richie are concerned for his well-being -- including the gym attack victim -- and they all want him to get the help he needs.

Donald Trump Pardons Boxer Jack Johnson ... Thanks to Stallone!

5/24/2018 10:29 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump announced he was posthumously pardoning the first black heavyweight champion Jack Johnson on Thursday ... and it seems a lot of credit goes to Sylvester Stallone!!

Johnson was convicted more than 100 years ago of violating the Mann Act by transporting a white woman across state lines.

The conviction, largely seen as racist and an abuse of the legal system, has been urged by many in the boxing community to be pardoned for years.

But, per POTUS, it was Rocky himself who swayed him to make the full pardon, tweeting back in April:

"Sylvester Stallone called me with the story of heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson. His trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial. Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!"

On Thursday, Trump made that happen.

And just a few minutes ago, Sly and boxing studs Lennox Lewis and Deontay Wilder celebrated the move with a punchy photo op in Washington D.C.

They also threw fake money to promote J Lo's new song, "Dinero," with Cardi B and DJ Khaled

The people in the class loved it -- and gave the couple an ovation after the workout. J Lo rewarded the group with a little dance number. 

Good times. 

Donald Trump Players Who Don't Stand Don't Belong In America!

5/24/2018 5:56 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump fully supports the new NFL policy on the national anthem -- he says players who don't stand should maybe "not be in the country."

The President spoke with "FOX & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade -- saying, "You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn't be playing. You shouldn't be there."

He added. "Maybe you shouldn't be in the country."

There's one part of the new policy Trump didn't like -- the option players have to stay in the locker room.

"I don't think people should be staying in locker rooms. But still I think it's good."

Of course, Trump has been railing for a while against players who demonstrate during the anthem -- and wanted NFL owners to fire Colin Kaepernick for starting the movement

By the way, Donald Trump has bragged how much he opposed the Vietnam War -- the method of protest back then was burning the flag. 

NFL's Reuben Foster Dom. Violence Case Dropped ... After GF Denies Attack

5/23/2018 4:16 PM PDT
Breaking News

A judge has officially dropped the felony domestic violence case against 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster after his ex-girlfriend told the court she lied about a violent attack back in February. 

Foster was arrested on Feb. 11 after officials say he punched the woman in the face 8 to 10 times causing serious injuries including a ruptured eardrum.

But, the woman completely changed her story when she testified in court last month ... claiming she made the whole thing up because he was going to dump her and she was pissed. 

"I wanted him to go down," she told the court. 

Foster appeared in a Santa Clara County courtroom on Wednesday when the judge announced the domestic violence case would be dismissed due to insufficient evidence. 

Foster was also facing a felony gun charge for possession of an assault weapon -- since officials say they found a SIG Sauer 516 with a high-capacity magazine during the search of Foster's home -- but that charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. 

While Foster appears to be good to return to the football field ... he still has another court date to worry about stemming from his January weed arrest in Alabama. He'll be back in court for that on June 20.

The Milwaukee Bucks are blasting the Milwaukee Police Dept. over the "shameful and inexcusable" way cops abused Sterling Brown ... and they're demanding accountability. 

"The abuse and intimidation that Sterling experienced at the hands of Milwaukee Police was shameful and inexcusable."

"Sterling has our full support as he shares his story and takes action to provide accountability."

The team continued ... "Unfortunately, this isn't an isolated case. It shouldn’t require an incident involving a professional athlete to draw attention to the fact that vulnerable people in our communities have experienced similar, and even worse, treatment."

"Racial biases and abuses of power must not be ignored. There needs to be more accountability."

The statement concluded ... "As an organization, we will support Sterling and build on our work with local leaders and organizations to foster safe neighborhoods and better our community."

NY Jets CEO Screw The NFL's Anthem Rule ... I'll Pay The Fines!!

5/23/2018 2:43 PM PDT
Breaking News

NY Jets chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson says to hell with the NFL's new policy on restricting anthem protests ... and vows to pay  the fines HIMSELF if his players kneel!

"If somebody [on the Jets] takes a knee, that fine will be borne by the organization, by me, not the players," Christopher told Newsday.

"There will be no club fines or suspensions or any sort of repercussions. If the team gets fined, that's just something I'll have to bear."

FYI, Christopher is the brother of team owner Woody Johnson -- who is currently serving as the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, after being nominated by President Trump

Johnson added that while he prefers his players stand, he says it's not his nor the league's place "to put restrictions on the speech of our players."

The policy was shredded by critics almost immediately after it was announced ... but it appears Johnson and the Jets have found a workaround.
