Donald Trump Spread 'Em! To Eat with the First Family

12/6/2016 7:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump's backing up traffic -- not on the streets of NY -- but outside one of his favorite NYC restaurants.

The President-elect -- along with Melania, Ivanka, Eric, Donald Jr., and son-in-law, Jared -- paid 21 Club a visit Monday night, but now when he goes it requires an intense security search ... of every other patron.

We got video as a bunch of hungry customers waiting in line to get wanded and patted down by Secret Service. Last month Trump slipped away from the press pool and hit up the fancy midtown Manhattan spot ... pissing off reporters.

Customers could've been the ticked ones this time -- although everyone seemed cool.

Angelina Jolie Angling for London with Kids and U.N.'s Top Job ... Sources Say

12/6/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1205-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-fun-art-03Angelina Jolie has an endgame in her claims Brad Pitt abused one or more of their children -- she wants to move to London with the kids and score a top position in the United Nations ... sources connected with the couple tell TMZ.

Several well-placed sources say Brad and Angelina have not gotten along for more than a year, and she's been looking for an opportunity to end the marriage and bolt for her dream job ... with all 6 children in tow. We're told she knew that would be nearly impossible unless Brad's right to joint custody was in jeopardy.

As we reported ... Angelina told L.A. County Dept of Child and Family Services officials Brad brutalized Maddox on a private jet and engaged in other conduct that endangered the children. We know Brad strongly denied intentionally striking Maddox or engaging in any abuse, and DCFS clearly saw it his way ... closing out the investigation without taking any action.

Our sources say Angelina's move to involve DCFS was orchestrated by 2 women she's been relying on for advice for more than a year. One is a member of England's House of Lords, and the other also holds a U.K. government position. We're told they've been in Angelina's ear, convincing her she could become Secretary General of the U.N. if she plays her cards right.

Angelina, who has been paying both women handsomely for their consulting services, is all in and taking their cue that a move to London would help get her closer to the U.N. gig.

0923-launch-angelina-jolie-un-getty-02The rub, of course, is in order to take her kids out of the country ... she'd have to prove some sort of parental unfitness on Brad's part. So far she's struck out.

Jolie's rep denies there's a move planned and says Angelina is focused on the health and well being of her children. The rep adds, Angelina wants to continue therapy with the kids and Brad.

Our sources are clear and insist Europe and the U.N. post is the ultimate goal. 

The custody war is now in family court -- she wants sole physical custody and he wants joint. We're told Angelina has a slim to none chance of taking the kids 6,000 miles away from Brad.

NFL Legend Fran Tarkenton Trump Boycotters Are Stupid 'Nobody Boycotted Obama 'Cause He's Black'

12/5/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

NFL great Fran Tarkenton says athletes who turn down an invitation to Trump's White House are "disrespectful" and "stupid" ... adding, "Nobody boycotted Obama 'cause he's black, did they?"

Tarkenton -- a self-described "huge Trump guy" -- was out in NYC when we asked his thoughts on NBA star Iman Shumpert saying he'd turn down an invite to 1600 Penn. if the Cavs won the championship during Trump's presidency. 

Shumpert's comments came in the wake of LeBron James saying he's on the fence about the idea. 

Tarkenton was OUTRAGED -- saying athletes should show the same level of respect to Trump they showed for Obama ... despite their personal feelings.

"If a President of the United States, our #1 guy, invites you to the [White House] and you're gonna boycott it? Because why? It's stupid."

"Nobody boycotted Obama because he's black did they? No. They all went there because he was our president. And you respect our president. No matter whether you're for him or not."

Donald Trump Costume Partying with Superwoman (Shhh! It's Kellyanne Conway)

12/4/2016 7:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1204-kellyanne-conway-donald-trump-superwoman-TWITTER-01Kellyanne Conway lifted Donald Trump all the way to the White House, but there's one thing even Superwoman couldn't do -- get the Prez elect into a costume.

Trump's campaign manager slipped into a tight and leggy Super outfit herself for a "Heroes and Villains" bash thrown at Robert and Diana Mercer's family estate on Long Island Saturday night ... which Trump attended too. 

Tight as the Prez elect is with Conway and the Mercers -- their daughter Rebekah's on his transition team -- he wasn't down for playing dress up at the annual event for the super-rich. 

Other guests in costume included a Tonya Harding, a Cruella Deville and at least 3 Ruth Bader Ginsburgs ... according to Bloomberg.

Not a single Kryptonite-colored Hillary costume though. That would've killed.

Tomi Lahren & Charlamagne We Can Be Friendly But Trump Still Divides Us

12/2/2016 4:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tomi Lahren's "I Have Black Friends" tour of NYC made a stop in Times Square with Charlamagne Tha God, and instead of Black Lives Matter ... they focused on a different movement.

The day after TheBlaze's ultra conservative host had drinks with Trevor Noah, she met Charlamagne -- most likely to discuss why she blew off an appearance on his radio show.

The odd couple says they're trying to understand each other's views on everything from politics to BPM -- yes, black penises matter has become a thing thanks to these two.

The whole encounter was fun and games, right up until Tomi suggested they head to Trump Tower. Let's just say ... Charlamagne don't play that.

Donald Trump Visit from Chris Christie ... Brother, Can You Spare a Job?

12/2/2016 1:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1202-chris-christie-trump-tower-meeting-TMZ-01Chris Christie seems to be making one last push for a high-ranking job in the GOP under Donald Trump ... since he personally stopped by Trump Tower.

We spotted Christie heading in for a meeting with the Prez-elect and his team Friday morning. There are reports he's interested in becoming the new RNC Chairman ... to replace Reince Priebus, who's about to become Trump's Chief of Staff. 

Remember, the NJ Governor was passed over for VP, despite being one of Trump's staunchest supporters.

Rosie O'Donnell Mum on Melania and Barron But What's Up in Your Life?

12/2/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rosie O'Donnell clearly did not want to talk about her comments about Barron Trump or her apology to the 10-year-old and his mom, Melania ... but boy did she have questions for the photog.

Rosie arrived at LAX Thursday and shut down when the photog asked about her walk back over her tweet that Barron might be autistic. He's not, and Melania was pissed.

You gotta hand it to her ... Rosie used her interviewing skills -- clearly from her talk show -- to adroitly deflect questions from the terminal to her waiting SUV.

Gotta say ... super impressive.

Guns N' Roses Knock, Knock, Knockin' On Trump Pinata

Exclusive Video

Guns N' Roses did some hardcore hatin' on Donald Trump during a concert -- but they had to figure the audience would love it ... since the show was in Mexico City.

The band paused the music Wednesday night to bring fans onstage to smash a Trump piñata, and they totally went off ... showing no mercy.

YG did the same thing earlier this this week, but with a skinnier piñata -- though we doubt that's gonna make the Prez-elect feel any better.

Rosie O'Donnell I'm So Sorry, Melania

12/1/2016 8:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1201-rosie-odonnell-melania-trump-TMZ-GETTY-02

Rosie O'Donnell has belatedly apologized to Melania Trump for blasting out on social media her 10-year-old son, Barron, might be autistic ... which he is not.

Rosie now says, "I apologize to @MELANIATRUMP - i was insensitive in my RT - i am sorry for the pain i caused - it was not my intent - i am truly sorry."

Melania went ballistic after a YouTuber posted a video suggesting Baron had autism, and Rosie then re-posted the video with the caption, "Barron Trump Autistic?"

TMZ broke the story, Melania hired lawyer Charles Harder, who fired off a letter to the YouTuber telling him if he didn't take the video down he'd sue. He also called out Rosie in the letter, but did not threaten her.

Our sources say Melania has been indignant at Rosie for doing what she believes was a mean-spirited act.

The YouTuber has taken the video down and apologized.

Garth Brooks Sure I'd Sing at Trump's Inauguration

12/1/2016 6:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Garth Brooks was radio silent on who he supported during the election, but he's definitely down with singing for President Trump at his inauguration.

We got Garth at the XMAS tree lighting Wednesday in D.C. and he's all about duty, honor country.

BTW ... who do you think Garth believes is the best songwriter around? It's not a country songwriter ... not even close.

Hillary Clinton Facelift Time For Her Campaign Plane

12/1/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1130_hillary-clintons-plane-paint-job-tmz-wmHillary Clinton's campaign plane is pulling one last job before calling it quits -- a paint job.

The bird is getting an overhaul at Dean Baldwin Aircraft Painting in Roswell, NM. Hillary's campaign was leasing the 14-year-old 737, and it's unclear what kind of service it's going into next ... but we're sure HRC's logo won't be needed.

The jet will be remembered for not making enough stops in Iowa, Michigan or Wisconsin. However, it did have a good run in Ohio ... after the campaign. The University of Dayton men's basketball team reportedly used it to fly to an away game a week after the election.

Unlike Hillary, they won a close game.

Breaking News

1130-iman-shumpert-donald-trump-tmz-01Iman Shumpert says he would boycott Donald Trump's White House if the Cavs repeat as NBA champs and are invited back to 1600 Pennsylvania.

The Cavs star was speaking with Complex when he was asked if he would boycott Yeezys after Kanye West expressed support for the President-elect.

"I understand people’s stance on Trump. I can’t get caught up in the racial, sexist bulls**t he’s got going on. That’s his personal thing, ya dig."

He added, "I do think he’s crazy -- straight up."

Complex followed up with the White House question:

Complex: "Will you go to Trump’s White House if the Cavs win the championship again this year?

Iman: "I’m not going to the White House."

As for Iman's teammate, LeBron James -- he says he's undecided about what he would do ... saying, "We’ll have to cross that road, I guess. We’ll see. I would love to have to cross that road."

Melania & Barron Trump YouTuber Cashes in With Apology

11/30/2016 7:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1130-barron-trump-melania-trump-GETTY-01The YouTuber who falsely insinuated Melania Trump's son was autistic is redefining chutzpah ... he's making money on his apology.

The guy has ads running on his apology vid, meaning he hasn't turned off the monetization setting -- just a one-click process.

The apology video posted Tuesday has almost 74,000 views as of Wednesday morning, and continues to run ads. 

We broke the story ... Melania and Barron threatened the YouTuber with a lawsuit ... and they called out Rosie O'Donnell for reposting it.

The guy took it down when he felt the Mama Bear's legal heat -- although he waited 24 hours and gained another 1 million views, and more ad revenue, in the process.  

He seemed sincere in his apology/retraction. Now ... we're not so sure.
