President Obama

J.R. Smith Can't Outshoot Steph Curry

breaking news

0528_OBAMA_GETTYPresident Obama just took a stand on the NBA Finals ... saying there's no way J.R. Smith has a chance to outshoot Steph Curry ... despite the fact Smith has been ON FIRE in the playoffs. 

Obama went to Twitter to answer some questions ... when someone wrote: 

"Can JR Smith out shoot Steph Curry and lead the Cavs to a championship?"

Obama's response -- "jr smith having a great season but the heart of the Cavs is Lebron. And no one can outshoot Curry - maybe Korver if wide open."

So far, no response from Smith ... but we're guessing it's coming.

Dear Barack Obama ... DO NOT PISS OFF YOUR WIFE!!!

Check out this new footage of Michelle Obama going to town on a punching bag at the White House gym -- throwing punch combinations and a pretty devastating roundhouse kick!! 

FLOTUS was showing off her Top 5 workout moves to celebrate the 5th anniversary of her Let's Move! campaign -- which is supposed to motivate Americans to get off their asses and get fit. 

Michelle looks great in the video ... jumping rope, hitting squats and blasting her core.

Prez Obama

6-Pack Smuggling

In the Oval Office ... Still!

5/5/2015 3:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

When President Barack Obama leaves the White House, he's taking something with him -- his six-pack(ish) abs ... according to his trainer who says El Jefe is still a workout freak.

Our photog in D.C. spotted Cornell McClellan, a member of the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition -- and, more importantly, the man who keeps B.O. and the whole First Family in shape.

McClellan said it's not as tough as you'd think to bark out commands to the leader of the free world -- since, as he puts it ... Obama is "raging against death." Kinda strange for a guy who's only 53, but whatever.

As for the six-pack starter kit the Prez had right before winning office? It seemed to be fading in 2012, but McClellan explains why Obama's no lame duck in the gym.

White House

Strong-Arms Photo Agency

To Squash Malia Photos

Malia Obama Paparazzi Photos
Malia Obama
went to a famous L.A. restaurant Monday night -- a restaurant regularly frequented by celebs and paparazzi -- and when the White House found out a photog took her pic, they went into DEFCON 1 to KILL the photos.

The 16-year-old went to Gjelina in Venice, CA with some friends.  The photog got the pic as Malia walked out and then sent it to the AKM-GSI agency to sell.  The agency posted the pic on its website for media outlets to purchase, but several hours later The First Lady's Office called AKM-GSI and asked them to please take the pics off the website and delete them from their files.

We're told Michelle Obama's people told the agency they had promises from various media outlets not to photograph the 2 girls when they were not in the presence of their father.  

AKM-GSI then agreed, sending an email to the media with the subject, "URGENT SET KILL NOTICE."

The text reads, "Please delete the set of Malia Obama from your archive.  The set was sent around earlier today.  We cannot distribute this set." 

Now here's what's interesting.  Malia has been in L.A. over the last few weeks, doing an internship on Halle Berry's TV show for part of the time.  Then she showed up at a famous restaurant -- Secret Service in tow -- with photogs all over the place.  

So is this a case of the President and First Lady taking precautionary action, or is this a concerned famous mom and dad flexing their muscles?

When the leader of the free world is jonesing for comfort food ... he ignores his wife's advice and reaches for a juicy hunk of grilled cow flesh ... so says the man who knows.

White House chef Sam Kass spilled this state secret to our TMZ photog.  Fact is ... it doesn't necessarily square with Michelle Obama's campaign for healthy eating.

But Michelle has clearly had an influence on her food guru.  Watch the video.
