N.J. Gov Phil Murphy Sworn In Post-Christie Don't Look Down

1/17/2018 7:56 AM PST

Phil Murphy is officially New Jersey's next governor post-Chris Christie -- but, while he was taking his oath ... the guy's oldest kid was busy honoring "Malcolm in the Middle."

Phil's eldest son, Josh Murphy, flashed the OK sign below his waist for the tail end of his father's swearing-in Tuesday -- which means he was playing the infamous Circle Game.

In case you aren't familiar, the game was made famous by the hit 2000s show in which the characters prank each other by making someone look down at a circle formed below the belt ... which then gives 'em the right to punch the poor sap.

Unclear why Josh did it (a bit too old, no?) ... but, technically, he probably owes most of New Jersey a hard sock to the arm. Us included, actually.

Donald Trump's Physical Could Dump 10 lbs ... Propecia Enthusiast

1/16/2018 1:18 PM PST

President Trump could stand to lose 10 to 15 pounds and he needs medication to control his cholesterol ... this according to his physician.

Dr. Ronnie Jackson went into greater detail Tuesday with Trump's first presidential physical exam taken Friday at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda. The doc initially said the exam "went exceptionally well," but cautioned there's room for improvement.

Jackson said Trump has a history of elevated cholesterol ... but he's taking Rx to control it. Jackson also said Trump's taking Propecia for his legendary and much maligned hair. 

The doc said they talked about diet and exercise, but Trump was "more enthusiastic about the diet part."

Jackson also said the Prez does not wear dentures. As far as a psychological exam ... Jackson said the Prez did undergo a cognitive test per the Prez's request and the doc said he's all clear. 

Jackson's adamant -- Trump is fit for duty, saying, "All clinical data indicates that the President is very healthy and he will remain so for the duration of this presidency." 

Donald Trump & Stormy Daniels Trump Chased Her in His Undies ... Stormy's Friend Claims

1/16/2018 9:34 AM PST

Porn star Stormy Daniels told a close friend Donald Trump was in chase mode -- in his underwear -- when they partied together in 2006 ... at least that's what the friend claimed Tuesday morning.

Alana Evans, also an adult film star, was on "Megyn Kelly TODAY" when she described a phone call with Stormy back in 2006. She says Stormy said, "picture this, Donald Trump chasing me around the bedroom in his tighty-whities."

Megyn's audience erupted in laughter, and so did Alana who said the conversation is not the kinda thing you EVER forget. 

There are reports Trump's camp paid Stormy $130k to keep quiet about the tryst. The White House has dismissed the claims about Stormy as "old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election.”

Oprah for Prez 'NOprah' Gear on the Horizon ... But Only If She Runs

1/16/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

There's at least one person who really doesn't wanna see Oprah in the White House -- and he's aiming to make some cash on the anti-O movement if she runs in 2020.

An Arizona man applied for the rights to use "NOprah" earlier this month on shirts, jackets, shoes, pants and other garments ... presumably to sell.

The guy, who only wanted to be ID'd as Lewis, tells TMZ ... he filed for the "NOprah" trademark because he saw a swirl of opposition to a possible O run. He says enough already with celebs in the Oval.

Lewis says he's not sure if he wants to start selling the clothing now, or wait until the 'Oprah for Prez' thing is more of a reality. 

One last thing ... Lewis tells us he personally likes Oprah -- just not for President. 

President Donald Trump Chivalry is Dead as a Doornail

1/16/2018 7:11 AM PST

President Trump's apparently more worried about his hair than his image ... fully covering his noggin with an umbrella while his fam braves the elements.

45 boarded Air Force One Monday in West Palm Beach, Florida ... and trailing behind in the rain and heavy wind was 11-year-old son Barron, and First Lady Melania Trump. The Prez spent the weekend at Mar-a-Lago ... probably not taking etiquette lessons.

Awful but also not surprising ... considering Trump's notorious for doing this under the biggest spotlight. Remember when Trump left Melania for their meeting with 44 and Michelle?

Bad look, hombre.

Missile Alert Japan Pulls a Hawaii ... False Alarm Over North Korea

1/16/2018 7:17 AM PST
Breaking News

The good news is Japan is NOT paying close attention to Hawaii anymore.

The country's public broadcaster, NHK, fired off an alert Tuesday warning a North Korean missile was incoming, but it turned out to be a false alarm.

The warning went out to everyone who had the NHK app, and read: "North Korea likely to have launched missile. The government alert: evacuate inside the building or underground." It took about 5 minutes before NHK sent out a follow-up to say it was a false alarm. 

Unlike the blunder in Hawaii, Japanese residents have reason to be on edge -- last year North Korea fired 2 missiles over the country.

Rod Stewart On Cranberries Singer's Death ... We're All Dropping Like Flies!!!

1/16/2018 6:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Rod Stewart's reaction to Dolores O'Riordan's death might not be the most sensitive, but it's definitely real ... and kinda dark.

Rod was leaving Il Piccolino Monday night in WeHo when we asked the British rocker if he knew The Cranberries singer who died suddenly in London. Rod said he didn't know Dolores personally, but he made it clear her passing, at only 46, has him pondering his own mortality.

On a lighter note, the rock legend thinks President Trump made a smart decision recently ... 'cause the the U.K. does NOT think he's sexy.

Tiffany Trump Plays the Vegas Flower Girl ... For Pal's Sexless Wedding

1/15/2018 5:38 PM PST

Tiffany Trump helped out a friend who wanted to get married in Vegas -- sans the romance -- so she picked up a basket baggie and started tossing petals. 

In a video that's since been deleted, President Trump's second youngest kid was seen as one of the few people in attendance at A Little White Wedding Chapel Sunday for her pal Quentin Esme Brown's "shotgun" marriage to "NYC Prep" star PC Peterson. -- who, apparently, aren't romantically involved.

It's interesting that Tiffany didn't fill in as a bridesmaid -- guess the Trump name doesn't carry as much weight in Sin City as it does in D.C. right now.

Always the flower girl ... huh, Tiff? 

Sen. Kamala Harris Feeling the Beat For MLK Day Parade

1/15/2018 3:08 PM PST

Sen. Kamala Harris made the most of her Grand Marshal title at Kindom Day Parade in L.A. by getting up close and personal with the bands ... and the Senator was getting it. 

The junior senator from Cali did a little -- emphasis on little -- dancing when a drum corps started doing their thing Monday during the parade. Natalie Portman was hanging with Sen. Harris much of the day, and recorded her moves.

Kamala and Natalie also joined in for a "TIME'S UP" chant during the 33rd annual parade. 

Here's the thing ... there's been a lot of buzz about Kamala running for prez in 2020 -- so that dancing vid could get a lot of play down the road. Just sayin'. 

Jozy Altidore Claps Back at Trump: This Shithole's Living the Dream

1/15/2018 11:37 AM PST
Exclusive Details

"Three shithole dudes just living the dream." 

That's how Team U.S.A. soccer stud Jozy Altidore captioned his Instagram pic with Usain Bolt and P.K. Subban this weekend in the wake of Donald Trump's comments. 

The 3 superstars all have ties to the Caribbean -- Usain's obviously Jamaican, Jozy's parents are Haitian and P.K.'s parents are from the islands, too.

So, when they got together at Rockwell nightclub in Miami -- Jozy used the opportunity to send a message to President Trump.

Then they proceeded to party their faces off.

In response to Jozy's post, Rockwell said it was a "pleasure having three class acts join us.”

Martin Luther King III Oh, Trust ... My Dad Would be Pissed About 'Shithole' Comment

1/15/2018 11:19 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Martin Luther King Jr.'s son says his father would be "incensed" by President Trump's "shithole" comment ... but MLK III still sees a silver lining.

We got the civil rights leader's oldest son Monday at the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Washington, D.C., and he weighed in on 45's disparaging remark ... and his father's likely reaction to it.

Perhaps surprisingly, MLK III thinks there can be a positive outcome from Trump's racist sentiment.

Good day to ponder whether his father would be as gracious to the President.

Al Sharpton to President Trump 'You Are a Racist'

1/15/2018 9:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Rev. Al Sharpton says President Trump is doing a horrible job of hiding who he really is ... a straight-up racist.

We got the Rev. at Reagan National Airport, and asked if he thought Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would have had a sit-down with 45, given Trump's controversial track record on racial issues during his presidency.

Sharpton insists Trump's big on using photo ops to make it APPEAR like he's interested in the African-American community, and he's certain MLK would have seen right through that.

The President is denying he's racist -- after his "shithole" comment -- but Al's clearly not buying it.

'Blacklist' Star Trump vs. Mueller? My Money's On ...

1/15/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump's all but down for the count in his battle with Special Counsel Robert Mueller ... so says "The Blacklist" star Harry Lennix.

We got Lennix at LAX and asked him what he thought about Trump saying "We'll see what happens" when asked if he'll allow Mueller's investigative team to interview him. Remember ... Mueller has spent 8 months looking into whether Russia interfered with the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.

Lennix -- who plays FBI Assistant Director on 'Blacklist' -- makes no bones about where his allegiance stands.
