'Gays for Trump' Prez Defends 'Blacks for Trump' Guy

8/24/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The president of "Gays for Trump" believes Trump and his team allowed the bizarre black guy to sit behind him because they liked the message on his t-shirt and sign but never dug further.

Peter Boykin -- who runs the pro-Trump LGBT group -- essentially says, "What's a President to do?" You see a cool tee and you run with it.  

Here's the problem ... had Trump's people simply logged on to Blacksfortrump2020.com (which was written on the damn sign), they would have seen all the craziness ... comparing Cherokees to the KKK, calling Oprah the devil, and putting Hillary and ISIS in the same boat.

Boykin says he's met the "Blacks for Trump" dude, Maurice Symonette, and says he's a good guy. BTW, we found out he was tried but acquitted of conspiracy to commit murder back in the '90s.

Boykin has nearly 70,000 Twitter followers, though it's unclear how many are members of "Gays for Trump."

8/15/2017 6:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Anthony Scaramucci thinks there's no place in our society for neo-Nazi's and white supremacists, but he doesn't take that extra step and urge Trump to cut them from his base.

We got The Mooch Monday in NYC at the Hunt & Fish Club, which he partly owns ... and he joined the chorus, agreeing Trump should have come out earlier and condemned the hate groups in Charlottesville

Scaramucci also confirmed our earlier story ... that he's working with a Hollywood producer on a sitcom idea, with the working title "Attack of the Swamp Monsters" ... a story about a guy from Wall Street who comes to D.C. and gets attacked by political hacks who want him gone ... hmmmm, sounds familiar.

Scaramucci also has a thing or 2 to say about LGBTQ rights.

Aaron Carter Bro's Not Reached Out ... Since I Came Out

8/12/2017 1:43 PM PDT

Aaron Carter says he's received amazing support since coming out as bisexual ... but apparently not yet from his brother.

The singer clammed up at the D.C. airport Saturday morning when he got asked if his bro, Nick Carter, had contacted him since his announcement ... and seemed to get emotional for a second before saying he and Nick are "wonderful."

It was more lighthearted after that, as Aaron considered some hot male celebs he'd like to date ... and picked a fellow singer he says he's been a huge fan of for a long time.

Aaron performed at Hamburger Mary's near his hometown in Brandon, Florida, and dropped the new song "Hard to Love", written about his ex-GF.

It's touching and pretty funny, as Aaron scopes out the crowd for hot guys ... and at least 2 catch his eye. But he sees another dude and takes a pass.

Charlamagne tha God Threatens Rolling Stone Over 'Transphobic Comments' Story

8/7/2017 12:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charlamagne tha God is threatening to sue Rolling Stone if it doesn't apologize for accusing him of making transphobic comments.

The 'Breakfast Club' host fired off a legal letter to the magazine saying its July 31 article on Rollingstone.com, headlined ... "Janet Mock on Charlamagne tha God's Transphobic Comments," is defamatory as hell since he didn't make such comments.

Rolling Stone has since changed its headline to "Janet Mock Speaks Out Following Charlamagne tha God's Controversial Morning Show." But the DJ is still furious and he's demanding an apology, full retraction and money for damage to his reputation.

You'll recall Charlamagne had comedian Lil Duval on his show, and outrage ensued after Duval said if he ever discovered he'd unknowingly slept with a transgender woman, she would be "dying."

Charlamagne seemed to condemn the remark and reminded Duval it's a hate crime. But Charlamagne says RS took his words out of context to write a fictitious and negative story.

We've reached out to Rolling Stone, so far no word back.

Exclusive Details

Aaron Carter broke up with his girlfriend days before announcing he's bisexual -- and it seems the news might have pushed things over the edge ... TMZ has learned.

A source close to Aaron tells us he and now ex-GF, Madison Parker, broke up sometime last week ... and that it was a long time coming.

His rep tells TMZ the decision was mutual, and Aaron and Madison "love each other and respect one another dearly." The rep also adds ... Aaron's personal statement speaks for itself. He's hoping to refocus his attention on his music.

As we reported ... Aaron announced Saturday night that he's found both men and women attractive since a young age. It's interesting -- we caught Aaron and Madison -- whom he referred to as his girlfriend -- driving around L.A. together early last week ... right after he apparently got out of surgery

Breaking News

Aaron Carter has just come out, saying he's bisexual. 

Aaron posted a late-night tweet Saturday in which he says when he was 13, "I started to find boys and girls attractive."  

He goes on, "There were years that went by that I thought about it, but it wasn't until I was 17-years-old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked and grew up with."  

He says, "This doesn't bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time that I would like lifted off me."

He ends by quoting Boy George, "I've never felt as though I didn't belong. I just acted as though I did."

Carter has had a rough time in the last month ... he was arrested in July for alcohol and drugs. He and girlfriend Madison Parker were spotted on on the TMZ Celebrity Tour a few days ago when Aaron jumped on the bus and said he had just had an operation but said the details were secret.

Caitlyn Jenner Hat Was Comedy of Errors I Hate Trump

8/5/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner did not wear a "Make America Great Again" hat Thursday as a show of support for Donald Trump ... it was a mistake tied to golf, a convertible, Starbucks and a purse.

Caitlyn tells TMZ she drove from her Malibu home to Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA, in a 1960 Austin-Healey convertible. Before leaving home she realized she needed a hat ... something better than a golf visor to protect her hair. So she rummaged through the 10 hats in her closet and grabbed one without looking at the stitching.

She says when she got to the club she threw the hat on the floor of the car, spent an hour or so hitting some balls and left. When she got to the car she grabbed the hat, saw the inscription and realized what she had done.

She tells us she was horrified because she now detests Trump after he tweeted about the military transgender ban. Caitlyn says, "What he's doing to our community is absolutely f***ing awful."

But Caitlyn had a dilemma on her hands ... wear the hat home or screw up her 'do. She chose the former, thinking no one was going to spot her. She wanted to stop at a Starbucks for a latte but exercised caution ... a mile from the coffee joint she switched to the golf visor and walked inside.

When Caitlyn left, she switched again, deciding to wear the Trump hat home. She got halfway to her property when she realized she left her purse at Starbucks, which contained, among other things, her cellphone. Caitlyn panicked and raced back to retrieve her purse, forgetting she was wearing the hat.

She ran inside, grabbed the purse and drove home. At some point she realized she still had the hat on but thought she could make it back undetected. She was wrong. Caitlyn says a photog snapped the pic somewhere between Starbucks and her Malibu home.

As for what to do with the hat, she's thinking of signing it and auctioning it off and giving the proceeds to a transgender cause. On the other hand, she might just rip it up or burn it.

Caitlyn says, "I apologize to all of the trans community. I made a mistake. I will never do it again and I'm getting rid of the hat."

Caitlyn Jenner I'm Still Team Trump Despite Transgender Ban

8/4/2017 6:39 AM PDT

Caitlyn Jenner isn't letting the whole transgender ban thing get in the way of what appears to be her undying support for President Trump.

Jenner was out and about Thursday, in a sporty car sporting a "Make America Great Again" hat.

It's pretty stunning, because she went ham on the Prez after his transgender military ban tweets, saying, "I believe every American should be outraged by the disrespect shown to those people wearing our country's uniform."  

Jenner's been a die-hard Republican for a long time, and she's gotten a lot of heat from the transgender community for not passionately carrying the torch.  

This one's gonna stoke the fire.

TLC Takes Dig at Duggars ... Defends Jazz Jennings

8/3/2017 2:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

TLC is speaking out in support of transgender teen Jazz Jennings after she was verbally attacked by Duggar family member Derick Dillard.

Dillard unleashed a social media rant on the 16-year-old, saying ... "Transgender" is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it's ordained by God." He made the comments while her show, "I Am Jazz," was airing Wednesday night on TLC ... where the Duggars used to be top dog.

A TLC rep tells TMZ ... Dillard's "personal statement" in no way reflects the network's views.

TLC pulled the plug on "19 Kids & Counting" after Josh Duggar's child molestation scandal broke in 2015 -- so Dillard's comments do smack a little of sour grapes.

Dillard still has TLC ties though -- his wife, Jill Duggar, is set to star on an upcoming show called "Counting On."

V.A. Secretary David Shulkin We Will Care for Transgender Vets We Boot from the Military

8/2/2017 3:28 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin says his department has compassion for the transgender vets whom the President is kicking out of the military.

We got the Secretary Wednesday on Capitol Hill and he spoke with resolve ... if anyone -- transgender people included -- serves in the military, they will get medical and other care for life.

It's odd to say the least ... the President says transgender soldiers are persona non grata in the armed forces because they cost too much for the limited time they serve, yet the Secretary has no issue providing unlimited care once they leave.

Lil Duval Doubles Down on Violent Reacton Transgender Woman Lying Would Damage Me

7/31/2017 2:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Duval is doubling down on saying a transgender woman would be "dying" if he found out she'd deceived him -- but he also insists he has no problem with gay or transgender people.

The comedian was on "TMZ Live" Monday to address the protests against him and "The Breakfast Club" after he made the controversial and violent remark last week. Duval says his only issue with the LGBT community is the idea of someone lying about their sexuality to get into bed with him.

As for why he'd retaliate with murder -- Duval offered an explanation. It's basically an insanity plea.
