Chris Christie Johnny Manziel In Dallas? OVER MY DEAD BODY

1/26/2016 9:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

How much does New Jersey Governor Chris Christie hate the idea of Johnny Manziel coming to his beloved Dallas Cowboys?

So much that he's willing to put a very large obstacle between Mr. Football and Big D ... his own body.

Christie called in to the Hugh Hewitt show to talk politics ... and when the subject of Johnny Manziel possibly joining the Cowboys came up ... the outspoken Governor let it be known ... he's not with it.

Check out the audio ... he wasn't holding an ice cream cone ('memba that? see video below) ... but he was just as effective.

Common would do a collabo with Michelle Obama in a heartbeat.

We got him grabbing a smoothie in WeHo and asked about the First Lady's foray into rapping.

FLOTUS spit a rhyme on the White House lawn alongside 'SNL' funnyman Jay Pharoah for a College Humor bit, and gave a shout-out to Common's old hood -- Chicago's Southside.

Common clearly thinks Michelle's got more powerful verses up her J. Crew sleeves.

Seems Donald Trump has another supporter ... and this one's a champ.  

UFC superstar Holly Holm gave a strong indication she's in Trump's corner. We got Holly out in NYC Friday and while she wouldn't fully commit ... it's obviously where she's leaning. 

It's gotta please Dana White -- who is a strong Trump supporter

EXCLUSIVE

President Manny Pacquiao??

It's possible ... because the boxer appeared on "TMZ Sports" (airing Thursday at 9PM PT on FS1) and said he isn't ruling out a presidential run in the Philippines when he retires from boxing. 

PacMan told us he plans to run for a seat in the senate after his fight with Timothy Bradley in April -- and when we asked if he eventually plans to run for the highest office in the land, he didn't exactly say no. 

Manny's promoter Bob Arum has been saying for months that Pacquiao will run in the 2022 election ... after he serves in the senate. 

Hail to the future Chief.

Sarah Palin Blames Prez Obama for Son's Arrest

1/20/2016 1:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Palin finally spoke out about her son's domestic violence arrest ... and she's kinda laying blame on President Obama.

Palin was at a Donald Trump rally in Oklahoma when she addressed the "elephant in the room" -- Track Palin's bust for allegedly assaulting a woman -- by saying Track is a combat veteran who's suffering PTSD ... and feels abandoned by the President.

As a result of Track's arrest ... she says she can now relate to other families of vets who feel abandoned by their commander in chief. She added, this is why America needs Trump.

It's his rally, after all. 

British Politician 'I USE POPPERS' ... Proposed Ban Is 'Stupid'

1/20/2016 8:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0120-crispin-blunt-getty-01A famous British politician has admitted he's a full-fledged "poppers" enthusiast -- and says a proposed ban to outlaw the drug would be "fantastically stupid."

The man on the pro-poppers crusade is MP (Member of Parliament) Crispin Blunt -- an openly gay man who also happens to be the uncle of actress Emily Blunt

Blunt was speaking about a bill to ban certain recreational drugs -- including poppers -- when he revealed that he's a big fan of the stuff ... sometimes used by gay men to prepare their bodies for sex. 

"I use poppers," Blunt said ... "I out myself as a poppers user. And would be directly affected by this legislation. And I was astonished to find that it’s proposed they be banned and, frankly, so were very many gay men."

He continued ... "There are sometimes that something is proposed which becomes personal to you and you realize the government is about to do something fantastically stupid and in those circumstances one has a duty to speak up."

Blunt says a ban on the drug would force users to get it illegally -- putting people at risk.

"The issue is about supply and, what it might do to someone like me, is to put me into the hands of the criminals to get my supply for something that I used to think was perfectly OK."

Blunt clarified he's was talking about someone "like me" ... "obviously not me, because I respect the law of the land."

President Obama Drake or Kendrick? That's an Easy One!

1/15/2016 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama and Meek Mill now have something in common -- they've both dissed Drake.

The prez sat down with YouTube star Adande Thorne ... who asked, "If Drake and Kendrick Lamar got in a rap battle, who do you think would win?"

Most hip-hop fans might pause, but BO quickly said Kendrick's his man. Okay, you might think he's gotta go with the American guy who happened to visit the White House recently, right? 

0115-obama-instagram-01Or should he have gone with the MC who has way more hits?

1/13/2016 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Bad news for Conor McGregor ... his face won't be on money -- but the Irish government is already mulling OTHER IDEAS to honor the UFC star. 

As we previously reported, a petition made its way all the way up to Irish parliament to put Conor's mug on the euro coin -- but it was killed because the guy who proposed the idea went M.I.A. 

But get this ... during the hearing, politician Richard Boyd Barrett addressed the committee -- and said there's a strong public demand to honor Irish stars who do great things on the international stage ... like Conor! 

"Certainly, Conor McGregor is a phenomenon at the moment, particularly after his demolition of Jose Aldo ... his very short demolition."

So, how will they honor Conor? Lawmakers kicked around the idea of a commemorative coin ... but Conor says he wants to be on the 500 EURO note! 

Dare to dream ... 

Conor McGregor Put My Face on Euro Coin Irish Gov. Discussing Proposal

Exclusive Details

0113-conor-mcgregor-tmz-01

The Irish government has a VERY interesting topic on the docket today -- politicians are set to discuss a real proposal to put Conor McGregor's face on the EURO COIN!!! 

A fan submitted the proposal back in December, after McGregor's 13-second destruction of Jose Aldo at UFC 194 ... and it got so much momentum, that it has been scheduled for discussion in parliament. 

TMZ Sports spoke with a rep for the House of the Oireachtas (Irish legislature) who confirmed the committee is meeting Wednesday about the UFC star ... but says getting Conor's face on the coin is definitely an uphill battle.

0113-subasset-conor-mcgregor-instagram-03"There are some European-wide stipulations that would need to be met for a petition like this to actually be enforced, so it's a longshot."

Basically ... even if Ireland approved the move, the remaining countries that use the Euro would also have to approve the change in order to get McGregor's face on money. 

As for Conor, he's pushing for it -- saying, "It would be a true honour for me to be immortalised on the €1 coin! Thank you to my fans for the petition!Let's go Oireachtas! Vote YES :-)"

Stay tuned ...

Exclusive Video

Nancy Grace has made it clear ... she thinks Steven Avery is guilty as sin, but she thinks "Making a Murderer" -- an advocacy documentary which makes him look innocent -- is a great thing for the criminal justice system.

We got Nancy Friday arriving at LAX, and she made it very clear ... all the hubbub is misdirected. But she's not ruling out the chance Avery can once again walk out of prison a free man.

One thing's undeniable ... her flying getup looks comfy.
