Donald Trump's inauguration speakers -- from reverends, rabbis and bishops to Jackie Evancho -- walked away from the historic day with way more than a memory ... like some gold to spruce up their swag bag.

We got hold of a bag that included gold White House cuff links. There was also a mug and "Blair House" book chronicling the history of the President's Guest House. 

That's not all ... speakers were also treated to flights and hotel accommodations for 2 in D.C. from Wednesday through Saturday. They also got police escorts to each inaugural event.

Sweet!

Donald Trump Goes Off Script During First Dance Singers Scramble

1/21/2017 7:13 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump had a spontaneous moment during his first dance with Melania that made the singers and band fight for their lives.

Erin Boehme, one of the 3 singers, told our photog Trump and Melania were supposed to dance to "My Way" by themselves, and Pence and his wife would follow with a different song.  Trump changed all that by waving Pence on stage ... then his kids.

Maybe you noticed ... "My Way" went on way long.

The self-proclaimed founder of the alt-right movement says he's gotta watch his back now that riots are breaking out over Donald Trump ... especially since he got socked twice at the inauguration.

The American white nationalist, Richard Spence, gave us a blow-by-blow of what went down in D.C. Friday.

EXCLUSIVE

0120-beatles-drum-kit-Don-mclean-01The Beatles fans could own a very cool piece of the iconic band's history -- the drum kit used for the recording of their first American single, which was played by the "Fifth Beatle."

Unless you're a total fanatic, you probably don't know Andy White replaced Ringo Starr on drums during the recording of "Love Me Do" ... their first #1 song in the U.S.

Nate D. Auctions has the set on the auction block until January 26, but you're gonna need Beatle-esque cash to score it. Bidding begins at $75,000.

Money can't buy you love, but it'll get you the legendary 4-piece that launched Beatlemania.

'Lethal Weapon' Cop Crashes Set ... Gets Her Depp Bubble Burst

1/21/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-lethal-weapon-fox-01"Lethal Weapon" star Clayne Crawford was shooting a scene when an LAPD officer busted it up ... purely by accident, but that's not the most embarrassing part for the cop.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... one of their own made the blunder last week while the FOX show was filming near city hall. We're told the director had to cut the action until the cop got out of the way.

To make matters worse, she told everyone afterward her Hollywood faux pas was totally worth it because at least Johnny Depp waved and smiled at her.

Her joy turned to disappointment when she was later told Johnny was nowhere near the set. Turns out her "Depp" was really Crawford ... who does bear a striking resemblance to Donnie Brasco.

Better luck next time, officer.

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

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.
