Nick Cannon Rockin' Cleveland Protest ... In His Turban

7/19/2016 8:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0719-nick-cannon-blm-protest-black-lives-matter-01Nick Cannon is fully woke and making statements -- both political and fashionable -- outside the RNC in Cleveland.

Nick was square in the middle of a Black Lives Matter protest on Monday. He was the one sporting the turban, if you couldn't spot him in the crowd.

0719-black-lives-matter-protestors-olivier-sipa-usa-usa-03The "America's Got Talent" host also led a BLM protest in NYC earlier this month after Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were shot and killed. That time he opted for black headgear.

Nick's clearly been stepping up his game in the political activism department.

Sting Freddie Mercury Would Turn Thumbs Down on Trump

7/19/2016 6:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sting has no doubt ... Freddie Mercury would be mighty unhappy that Donald Trump made his grand entrance Monday night to his iconic song.

Sting was leaving Craig's Monday night when our photog told him "We Are the Champions" was used to intro the Republican candidate.  

It took a nanosecond for Sting to give his take.

Donald Trump Mercury Retrograde at RNC

7/18/2016 7:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump made a rock star entrance Monday night at the Republican National Convention.

A wash of light carved the unmistakable outline of the candidate. He unmasked himself by walking onto the stage to Freddie Mercury.

Trump took the podium, told the crowd their win would be big, and then surrendered the stage to his wife.

0717-paul-ryan-interns-instagram-02Speaker of the House Paul Ryan took a selfie with more than 100 Capitol Hill interns ... and it's a virtual whiteout.

Most of the interns are Republicans, and you have to look hard to find the one black person in the crowd.

It's a lily-white fest.

Donald Trump I Like Asian, Italian, Mexican ... I Like it All!!!

7/18/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0715_donald_trump_rnc_food_compositeDonald Trump's convention will be inclusive for almost all nationalities ... at least in the food court.

We've done some digging, and found out the RNC has planned a true smorgasbord. Delegates can dine from a variety of restaurants including:

-- Asiatown ... favorite dishes include thai spiced ramyun noodles and marinated chicken

-- Slavic Village ... favorite dishes include handmade pierogis and kielbasa

-- Little Italy ... favorite dishes include mozzarella stuffed risotto bites and red pepper romesco

-- Ohio City ... essentially a Mexican restaurant. Favorite dishes ... steak with cilantro and onions served in flour tortillas.

There's also plenty of American food.

And no matter where they eat, they'll all end up in the same place ... the bathroom.


Tim Tebow I'm NOT Speaking at G.O.P. Convention ... 'Just a Rumor'

7/15/2016 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sorry, Trump ... Tim Tebow will NOT be joining Dana White as a celebrity guest speaker at the Republican National Convention next week ... calling the whole thing a silly "rumor."

FYI, Tebow's name was on a roster of RNC speakers obtained by the New York Times -- a roster that included Dana White (who confirmed he is speaking) but the QB made a video saying the whole thing is BS. 

"It's amazing how fast rumors fly ... and that's exactly what it is ... a rumor."

Tebow then says he has no plans to run for a political office ... at the moment ... but doesn't close the door on plans to get in the game somewhere down the line. 

In fact, the rest of his video sounds like a political speech!!! 

Bottom line -- no Tebow at the RNC ... at least not this year. 

Dana White Yes, I'm Speaking At G.O.P. Convention 'About The Trump That I Know'

0714_dana_white_donald-trump-tmzDana White confirms to TMZ Sports ... he WILL be speaking at the Republican National Convention next week to talk about his relationship with Donald Trump

The UFC honcho has been very vocal about his support for Trump -- and previously appeared on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 and explained why he's got Donald's back no matter what.

As for White's RNC speech -- Dana says it won't be political ... but rather, "It will be about my relationship with Trump and the Trump that I know."

Tim Tebow is also reportedly on board to speak at the convention. 

Canadian Official Rips MLB All-Star Singer ... You Disrespected Our Anthem!

7/13/2016 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A high-ranking Canadian official is blasting the singer who changed the words to "O Canada" at the MLB All-Star game ... in the politest Canadian way possible. 

Minister of Canadian Heritage Melanie Joly issued a statement to TMZ Sports (through her rep) expressing her disdain for Remigio Pereira ... the singer who changed a line from the Canadian national anthem to include the words, "All lives matter."

"The national anthem is a treasured Canadian symbol," Joly said ... "Pereira's change to the national anthem to further his political views is inappropriate and disrespectful."

Pereira is a member of the Canadian-based quartet "The Tenors" -- and switched the lyrics from, "With glowing hearts we see thee rise. The True North strong and free" to, "We're all brothers and sisters. All lives matter to the great." He also held up a sign that read, "United We Stand."

For what it's worth ... the group has apologized, calling Pereira a "lone wolf" who acted without permission from the group and saying he won't be performing with them until further notice. 

Congressman Pete Sessions These Mass Murders Not One Size Fits All

7/8/2016 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The police assassinations hit close to home for Congressman Pete Sessions ... he represents Dallas, and thinks it's a huge mistake to try to and come up with one solution for the entire country.

Sessions, Chairman of the House Rules Committee and one of the most powerful members of Congress, told our photog Friday on Capitol Hill ... the underlying causes of violence vary from community to community -- the murders in Dallas and Chicago, he says, are different.

Everyone's looking for solutions, which is good.

Joe Walsh 'Watch Out Obama ... Real America is Coming After You'

7/8/2016 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0707-joe-walsh-getty-01Syndicated radio talk show host Joe Walsh declared war on President Obama after the Dallas cop killings, saying, "This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming after you."

The former congressman went wild on Twitter last night, deleting the comment after a torrent of criticism over his remarks.

Walsh also called Obama a "cop hater" who was no different from "the thugs on the street."

Walsh was critical of the remarks Obama made Thursday night -- about racism in the criminal justice system -- claiming the comments may have triggered the sniper attack in Dallas.

He said, "Obama says cops are racist so 2 uneducated black thugs shoot 10 Dallas cops."

Gary Johnson I'm Begging Snoop & Taylor ... Get On Board!

7/8/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson could finally be a viable alternative to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton ... if he could just get a few key celebs to endorse him.

We got the former New Mexico governer and Libertarian prez hopeful in D.C. and he dished on his campaign strategy.

Check it out if you -- like millions of voters -- desperately want a third option at the polls. Or if you happen to be Taylor Swift or Snoop Dogg -- who might be really interested in Johnson's stand on marijuana.

Yeah, he's pro. Really pro.

Bill O'Reilly Obama Has 'Deep Emotional Ties to Islam'

7/7/2016 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0707-obama-muslim-garb-FOX-NEWS-01Bill O'Reilly says there's a reason President Obama will not use the words, "Islamic terrorism" ... he says it's because Obama has "deep emotional ties to Islam."

O'Reilly laid out his case Wednesday night, showing a pic he says was taken in the '90s at Obama's half-brother's wedding, in which Obama is dressed in traditional Muslim garb.

The FNC host argues we are losing the battle against terrorism because Obama has conflicting views as the result of alleged Muslim family ties.
