5/17/2016 5:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump says his fans can deliver a nasty tweet like nobody else ... especially when directed at Megyn Kelly.

The Donald sat down with the Fox anchor and made it clear ... his supporters come out guns a blazing when he's embroiled in a feud. Megyn called Donald out on retweeting some of the more aggressive posts aimed at her, to which Donald replied he knew she's been called MUCH worse. 

Donald has a clear take on how he'll feel if he loses the election ... let's just say, he likes to win.

Breaking News


Wendell Pierce from "The Wire" remembers things much differently from the alleged victim in his battery arrest -- because he says HE was the one held against his will.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... police say Pierce and his girlfriend started talking politics with three people in the hallway of their Atlanta hotel. As we've reported -- Pierce backs Hillary Clinton and the alleged victim is a Bernie Sanders supporter.

Pierce's side of the story is he followed the Bernie fan and her friends to their room as they argued about Clinton and Sanders -- but stayed outside the room. He claims they tried to pull him into the room ... as he tried to run away.

The alleged victim has a more brutal memory of what happened. She says when Pierce followed, he stuck his arm in the door and tried to enter her hotel room. She claims when they tried to push him out, Pierce grabbed her hoodie and ripped it so hard it came off.

Pierce was booked for simple battery


President Obama Passes Drug Test from Tommy Chong ... Bill Clinton Does NOT

5/16/2016 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bill Clinton definitely didn't inhale because it's likely he never even had a joint, according to Tommy Chong who says Bill failed a simple test ... which our current Prez aced.

The 'Cheech and Chong' star was at LAX signing autographs and fielding questions about all things weed ... when we asked which past commander in chief he'd invite for a smoke sesh.

Naturally, we were expecting Clinton's name would be mentioned -- based on his infamous I "didn't inhale" comment. But Tommy shocked us when he explained why he doesn't buy Clinton's marijuana confession.

As for President Obama ... his weed status is golden. Or green.

It appears Wendell Pierce got just as good as he gave in his alleged fight with a Bernie Sanders supporter in Atlanta ... now that we see his mug shot.

TMZ broke the story ... "The Wire" and 'Odd Couple' star got arrested and booked for battery Saturday when he -- a staunch backer of Hillary Clinton -- got into it with a woman who's voting for Sen. Sanders.

Pierce allegedly pushed the woman's boyfriend, then went after the woman ... grabbing her hair and smacking her in the head.

It's clear in the mug shot -- Wendell has scratches on his nose and upper lip. His reps have been silent since the arrest.

He's running as a democrat. And you thought Satan was a republican.

0511-george-zimmerman-getty-03The handgun George Zimmerman used to take Trayvon Martin's life is now going to the highest bidder -- and Zimmerman calls the weapon an "American Firearm Icon." 

The Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm is listed on for what's touted as a single-day auction on Thursday. Opening bid is set at $5,000.  

Zimmerman's not shy about the gun's history either. His listing on the site includes this: "I am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American Firearm Icon. The firearm for sale is the firearm that was used to defend my life and end the brutal attack from Trayvon Martin on 2/26/2012."

Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon.

He claims he will use money from the sale to oppose Hillary Clinton's campaign, and to fight what he calls Black Lives Matter fueled "violence against Law Enforcement officers."

He says the gun is "a piece of American History."


Vladimir Putin He Shoots, He Scores Slaps Goal In Russian Hockey Game

Vladimir Putin couldn't be stopped on the ice Tuesday (mostly, because everyone was afraid to stop him) ... racking up a goal and 2 assists in an amateur hockey game in Russia. 

Besides winning the face off (seriously, would you try to steal the puck from Putin?) ... the Russian prez skated around the ice with full pads -- leading his team to a 9-5 victory in one of the arenas built for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. 

All jokes aside ... even if the goal was a sham, pretty impressive to see a 63-year-old world leader out there on the ice.

Senator John Thune got some sage advice from our photog ... if you want to be Donald Trump's Vice President ... pretend that you don't.

We got the senator from South Dakota at Reagan National Airport Monday, and he took a page from the Paul Ryan playbook ... he's happy with what he's doing now.

There's a buzz he could get tapped by Trump. If so, a real baller could become VP. Check out the Capitol Hill boyz on the court.

Famous Canadian Politician Defends Dwyane Wade ... Diss Wasn't Intentional

5/9/2016 11:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0509-dwayne-wade-norm-kelly-gettyDwyane Wade is finally getting some Canadian love ... after getting blasted for shooting hoops during the Canadian national anthem -- with Drake's favorite politician calling for people to chill out. 

In case you didn't know ... Wade's been accused of disrespecting our neighbors to the North for not standing at attention during "O Canada" before the Game 3 playoff game against the Toronto Raptors.  

Wade tried to explain himself ... claiming he has a pre-game layup ritual he does before the 'Star-Spangled Banner' -- and innocently forgot to account for the Canadian anthem this time around. 

People got pissed -- including the mayor of Toronto who tweeted at Dwyane to "respect the anthem."

Now, another famous Canadian politician is weighing in ... Norm Kelly -- a city counselor in Toronto who's more commonly known as Drake's fave politician ... after he launched a Twitter attack on Meek Mill a while back. 

So, how did Kelly feel about the Wade situation?

"I empathize with Wade," Kelly tells us. 

"I played hockey, baseball, football ... I understand the rituals athletes go through, especially before a playoff game. I don’t think he intended to be disrespectful."

"He should’ve just been more aware. I don’t think we’ll see a repeat of what he did. He’s smart. He’s aware. He’ll know next time."

Kelly says the bigger issue is that Canada is finally sticking up for itself on the world stage -- and refuses to be a punchline anymore! 

"Why did Toronto react like they did? It’s because Canada is starting to flex their muscles. We’ve been the junior partner in North America for a long time. Now, there are people coming from around the world to enjoy Toronto’s way of living. The last Prime Minister was more involved militarily. We’re like the small kid on the block who suddenly has muscles."

You've been warned ... 

Steve-O I'm Down To Take On ISIS ... With My UFC Pal

5/7/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We're about to reach a whole new level of Steve-O craziness ... 'cause he's freakin' calling out ISIS ... and he's doing it in the name of UFC fighter Tim Kennedy.

Kennedy's situation is no laughing matter ... the FBI was investigating "credible threats" against the fighter -- an uber Patriot -- earlier this year ... believing those threats were possibly coming from ISIS operatives.

Steve-O and Kennedy are buds ... so much so that Steve-O let Tim CHOKE HIM OUT at a recent comedy show ... and when we ran into the "Jackass" star at LAX he let it be known ... he's got Tim's back.

For the record ... Tim Kennedy is an ex-Green Beret ... Steve-O is not.

Check out the clip.

Vicente Fox Trump's Tacos are Fake!!!

5/6/2016 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former Mexican Prez Vicente Fox scoffed at Donald Trump's Cinco de Mayo homage, saying it's outlandish to think any restaurant with a Trump connection can serve up authentic Mexican grub.

Fox goes on to praise Hillary Clinton to the skies, explaining why he thinks she'd make a great president.

Best part ... we shot the video on May 5th ... Fox was dining at an Italian restaurant!
