Donald Trump Sticky Situation For Walk of Fame Star

6/12/2017 2:05 PM PDT

President Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was defaced with a slew of stickers during Sunday's Resist March.

Protesters covered Trump's oft-vandalized star with #resist stickers that target misogyny, transphobia, corruption, homophobia, xenophobia ... to name just a few.

The President's star is keeping cleanup crews busy. This will probably be the easiest repair job for them though. As we've reported ... the star's previously been obliterated with a pickax, had a mini-wall built around it and ... had a golden toilet placed on it.

That one takes the creative crown.

Donald Trump Praises Clemson Name Drops Bill Belichick

6/12/2017 11:06 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump says Deshaun Watson is going to be a great pro, Hunter Renfrow is "lucky" he caught the game-winning TD and Bill Belichick loves him some Dabo Swinney.

That's the Cliffs Notes version of Trump's speech to the Clemson Tigers football team at the White House on Monday ... where POTUS congratulated the guys for winning the National Championship. 

Trump called out several players from the crowd to come up -- including ex-Tigers QB Desean Watson, who was flown into D.C. by the owners of his new team, the Houston Texans. 

Trump also called the National Championship game against Alabama one of the greatest football games he's ever seen. 

Overall, lots of praise from Trump -- but none of the zingers/dad jokes Barack Obama was known for delivering.  

What's also cool ... the Secret Service agent who greeted the team is ex-Tigers WR Kevin Youngblood -- who played for Clemson in the early 2000's (and had a short stint in the NFL) before dedicating his life to protecting POTUS.

Dean Cain Kaepernick Dissed the Flag ... I'm Still Mad About It

6/12/2017 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dean Cain is still upset about Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest -- telling TMZ Sports, "I know a lot of people who fought and died for that flag. I would never disrespect it like that."

We got Superman out in Malibu, and asked the ex-NFL player (it's true, look it up) if he thinks Kaep will ever land a team, given that Seattle -- where some thought he had his best shot -- passed.

That's when Cain opened up ... saying he didn't like the protest one bit -- and it seems pretty obvious it changed his opinion of the QB. 

Of course, this is the very issue some people think is keeping NFL teams from signing Kaep -- fans are still ticked. 

That said, Cain still believes Kaep will get a job in 2017 ... but he might not be on a roster opening day.

Melania & Barron Trump Officially Move into White House

6/11/2017 7:29 PM PDT

Donald Trump's White House is now complete with 1 First Lady and 1 First Kid ... Melania and Barron Trump have officially moved in.

President Trump touched down in D.C. Sunday evening with his wife and 11-year-old son, along with Melania's parents. Barron was rocking a shirt that proved he was a pro at this sort of thing.

As we reported ... Melania and Barron's move to D.C. has been scheduled since at least March, if not earlier. The Trumps were simply waiting for Barron to finish his 5th grade year in New York before heading south. Now, he'll be attending St. Andrew's Episcopal as an incoming 6th grader ... where sports will play a big role in his curriculum. 

Melania tweeted from inside the White House Sunday. Looks like she's getting comfy in her new digs already.

President Trump Wedding Crasher

6/11/2017 7:34 AM PDT

President Trump interrupted his golf weekend to surprise a bride and groom who tied the knot at his club.

The wedding was thrown at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster Township in New Jersey.  

Trump's been a fixture at the club over the years and has marketed wedding crashing in his brochures, saying, "If he (Trump) is on-site for your big day, he will likely stop in & congratulate the happy couple. He may take some photos with you, but we ask you and your guests to be respectful of his time and privacy."

Well, he delivered.

James Comey To Score Big Bucks as Speaker But Pissing Off the Right Will Cost Him

6/10/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

James Comey can make a fortune yakking in front of crowds, but he could make more if he didn't piss off conservatives.

We've spoken with a number of people who run celebrity speaker companies, and they all say Comey could pull between $75,000 and $100,000 a speech ... at least in the short term.

To put this in context, the people who run these services say $75k - $100k is top of the heap in terms of money, with the exception of an exclusive club -- the POTUS club.

We're told Barack Obama broke all records recently with a $400,000 gig. We're told Bill Clinton pulls between $200k - $250k a speech.

We're told conservative groups typically pay more than liberal orgs, and Comey is now at loggerheads with folks on the right, so those groups won't pay a premium and the folks we spoke with say that also makes Comey's shelf life as a speaker shorter.

Ice Cube Bill Maher N-Word May Have Something to do with Black GF's

6/9/2017 8:10 PM PDT

Ice Cube took Bill Maher to task on "Real Time" by letting him know it was wrong to use the n-word, and then suggesting Maher may have felt he had a pass because he's had black girlfriends.

Cube wanted to know why Maher thought it was cool to use the word, and the host made it clear -- he didn't think it was cool, and then he apologized.

Then Cube referred to the fact Maher has had several black girlfriends and suggested somehow that may have made it felt he had permission to hurl the n-word.

President Trump I'll Say It Under Oath ... Comey Lied About Me

6/9/2017 1:18 PM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump and James Comey's blood feud is just getting started, because POTUS says he's willing to shoot down the ex-FBI Director's testimony ... under oath.

The Prez held a news conference in the Rose Garden and, naturally, got peppered with questions about Comey. He insisted he NEVER demanded a loyalty oath from Comey ... and even further said, "Who would do that? I hardly know the man."

He also insinuated there very well might be recordings of his and Comey's convos ... and he might be willing to let them go public.

President Trump Fires Back ... Comey Lied and Leaked!

6/9/2017 5:18 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump broke his silence on James Comey's testimony ... declaring victory over his former FBI Director, and dismissing him as a "leaker."

Fair to say, the Prez was NOT impressed with what he saw and heard during Comey's Senate Intel Committee hearing. Early Friday, Trump said, "Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication...and WOW, Comey is a leaker!"

POTUS' Twitter fingers were silent during Comey's highly anticipated testimony, making the event kind of a let down. Trump's now revealing his takeaway -- Comey had nothing on him when it comes to Russia ... and Comey admitted leaking info about their meetings.

Obviously, there was much more said -- such as Comey testifying he couldn't trust the President wouldn't lie -- something many took as a blow to 45's character.

Still, Trump's perspective on the event is clear: I win.


Reality Winner Wanted to 'Burn the White House' ... Prosecutors Say

6/8/2017 5:19 PM PDT
Breaking News

Accused NSA leaker Reality Winner wrote about Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda and torching the White House ... according to prosecutors.

Winner entered a not guilty plea Thursday to one count of "willful retention and transmission of national defense information." During the hearing, prosecutors said 2 notebooks were found in Winner's home, and in one of them she'd written ... "I want to burn the White House down."

On other pages she'd listed names of Taliban and al Qaeda leaders, bin Laden ... according to prosecutors. 25-year-old Winner is accused of leaking at least one classified NSA document to a media outlet.

Winner's parents were in court and testified to her character. It didn't work. She was denied bail and led back to jail in shackles.

John McCain Blames Diamondbacks for Weird Comey Questioning

6/8/2017 12:15 PM PDT
Breaking News

John McCain says he has a perfectly good excuse for that bizarre line of questioning during the Comey hearing Thursday ... he watched too much baseball the night before.

Twitter has been exploding with people mocking the 80-year-old AZ senator for strangely bringing up the Hillary Clinton investigation while everyone else wanted answers on Russia and Trump

McCain accused Comey of applying a double standard by closing the Clinton investigation while leaving the Trump inquiry open. Comey's explanation was that the Clinton investigation ran its course while the Trump investigation had barely started when Trump fired him.

This seemed a rational explanation for everyone in the room, except for McCain who seemed baffled.

Now, McCain has issued a statement trying to explain (and also poking fun at himself) ... saying:

"I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people's heads. Maybe going forward I shouldn't stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games."

For the record, the D-Backs played the Padres Wednesday night ... and won 7-4. 

James Comey I Was Concerned Trump Would Lie ... Russia Didn't Alter Votes

6/8/2017 6:35 AM PDT

Former FBI Director James Comey's highly anticipated testimony had something for everyone -- supporters of President Trump, but also his detractors.

Comey told Sen. Richard Burr he had no doubts Russia attempted to interfere, and made cyber attacks on voter files and the DNC -- but he's also confident they were not able to alter a single vote in the 2016 election.

The biggest bombshell though was his explanation for why he took detailed notes after every meeting with President Trump. Comey said, "I was honestly concerned that he might lie about the nature of our meeting and so I thought it really important to document."

He also got into whether the President leaned on him to back off Gen. Mike Flynn or the Russia investigation.

The hearing stopped everything in D.C. -- some interns were waiting in line since 3 AM to get into the hearing

President Trump Should Chill for Comey Testimony Says Sen. Lindsey Graham

6/8/2017 7:17 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The only thing President Trump should be stressed about while James Comey testifies is his golf game ... according to Sen. Lindsey Graham.

We got Sen. Graham on the Hill -- just before the Comey hearing began -- and he gave us his pre-game analysis. While the whole nation's got Comey fever, Graham says, "it's gonna be a lot of theater."

His point is the Prez has nothing to worry about, and this whole hearing is just a lot of posturing.

Graham's advice for Trump -- in a word? Fore!
