Betsy DeVos Sec. of 'Educatuon' ... White House Trollin'?

4/17/2017 3:20 PM PDT

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos got a new title Monday, courtesy of a seriously ironic White House flub ... and we'd like to believe we're being trolled. No, we HOPE we're being trolled.

The White House posted a pic of DeVos reading to a bunch of kids at the annual Easter Egg Roll, but labeled her "Secretary of Educatuon" in the caption.

Of course, the Internet's been going off in the comments, but this is hardly the first typo in White House press releases under the Trump administration. Is someone just having a laugh, or ... 

Thoghts?

Glenn Beck to Tomi Lahren You Weren't Fired ... You Were Just Bad at Your Job

4/17/2017 1:47 PM PDT
Breaking News

As far as Glenn Beck is concerned, Tomi Lahren is still an employee at his network, TheBlaze, and she's the one who breached her contract.

Beck and TheBlaze filed a countersuit against its former personality, Lahren. She had sued them claiming she was canned simply because she said she was pro-choice. In the new docs, Beck says Tomi was never fired or suspended, but they did bench her show for one week. He says they continued to pay her salary during that time.

They admit the show was temporarily taken off the air because her pro-choice comments were "offensive to many of the TheBlaze's supporters and followers." According to the docs, the real problem was, "Her comments were shocking and disappointing because they demonstrated Lahren was uninformed and unprepared to speak."

Translation: She's an idiot ... as far as Beck and TheBlaze are concerned.

Tomi's former employers think she was an awful mouthpiece whose "word choices on air had to be addressed repeatedly for bordering on the profane."

Beck insists Tomi's still under contract, and wants a judge to block her from trashing TheBlaze and from making public appearances without their approval.

Russian boxing star Sergey "The Krusher" Kovalev loves him some Vladimir Putin and he's not ashamed of it ... telling TMZ Sports he thinks Putin is the greatest Russian prez EVER.

SNL Sean Spicer's Easter 'Mistake' ... Ridicules Jews, Passover

4/16/2017 6:51 AM PDT

Melissa McCarthy cranked up her Sean Spicer tone-deafness to 10 on Saturday Night Live ... and went after Jewish people and Passover. 

McCarthy performed her Spicey in an Easty Bunny suit, lampooning Sean for his comments last week about Syria's Basjar al-Assad and Hitler.

Melissa's been a huge hit on the show and all of her Spicer skits elicited huge laughs. In this one, the laughs are muted, and it seems the audience is uncomfortable with the attack. 

It's really brutal. The question ... too far?

EXCLUSIVE

New Jersey boy band Bro4 will risk career ruin by cavorting on Donald Trump's White House lawn ... because they believe they can save the lives of some kids while they're there.

The Alam brothers -- Skyler, Levi, Madison and Casey -- are playing the White House Easter Egg Roll Monday, where 25,000 kids will scour the grounds for Easter eggs. They're doing the gig to support Melania Trump's anti-cyber-bullying campaign.

Madison was bullied a lot as a kid and the other brothers had to stick up for him. It even prompted them to write a track called, "Bruises."

The way the bros see it, if they can save one kid's life, it's worth ruining their reputation.

Breaking News

Donald Trump protesters and supporters have come to blows in Berkeley, California on Tax Day ... and the fight videos are completely nuts.

A group of anti-Trump protesters marching for Tax Day -- in an effort to get the president to release his taxes -- reportedly clashed at Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Park with Trump supporters holding their own "Patriot's Day" rally.

The scene is insane -- countless demonstrators get into fights ... swinging helmets and skateboards as weapons and using homemade shields.

Breaking News

Colin Kaepernick is BETTER than every single quarterback who got signed in free agency ... Mike Glennon, Geno Smith, Nick Foles ... this according to Denver Broncos star Brandon Marshall

Brandon and Colin were college teammates at Nevada -- and Brandon also took a knee as part of Colin's national anthem protest last season. 

Well, Marshall is clearly upset Kaep is still unemployed and went to Twitter to vent about it. 

"It's time my Brother @Kaepernick7 gets signed. He's better than every QB that got signed in Free agency."

Some players, including Terrell Suggs, feel Kaepernick is being blackballed because of his political activism. 

Other people, including Brandon's own boss, John Elway, says that's not true. Elway previously told us he just hadn't taken a hard look at the guy. 

He probably should, Denver could use a QB ... 

Mother of All Bombs Watch it Explode on ISIS

4/14/2017 6:42 AM PDT

The Pentagon just released video of the largest non-nuclear bomb in the U.S. arsenal explode in Afghanistan, killing 36 ISIS soldiers.

The bomb -- dubbed MOAB or "Mother of All Bombs" -- had never been used before in combat. The bombing was months in the making ... before Trump took office.

The conventional wisdom ... although the bomb was powerful, the driving message was that the U.S. is ready, willing and able to use force to combat enemies -- clearly including North Korea.

The former First Daughter couldn't hide her Colgate smile while getting lost in her husband Marc Mezvinsky's eyes ... as they took a stroll through the Lincoln Center for the YAGP Gala: Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow ballet performance at the David Koch Theatre in NYC.

Gotta wonder ... what did Marc say or do to make her smile like that.

White House 2 Secret Service Agents Fired Over Fence Jumping

4/13/2017 2:48 PM PDT
Breaking News

The Secret Service pulled the trigger on dumping 2 agents after investigating the guy who jumped over a White House fence, and roamed the grounds for nearly 20 minutes.

The fired agents were involved the in the March 10 incident ... where, as we reported, Jonathan Tran got close enough to jiggle a doorknob into the White House. The Secret Service says its investigation revealed Tran hopped a 5-foot high fence near the Treasury complex, and then hopped another 3-and-a-half foot high fence near the East Wing of the White House.

The investigation is ongoing, according to the Secret Service ... which says it's also added new posts for agents and enhanced technology to prevent a repeat.

You'll recall ... a second intruder, Marci Wahl, hopped a White House fence later in March, and a few days later, did the same at the Treasury building.

WWE's Kane Mayoral Opponent Was In 'Friday Night Lights' ... And Lizzie McGuire

Exclusive Details

Kane ain't the only famous person running for mayor in Knox County -- the WWE star's opponent has a serious Hollywood background ... and even played a key part in "Friday Night Lights."

Kane (real name Glenn Jacobs) is running against Bob Thomas -- who played the sports radio host Slammin' Sammy in the 'FNL' movie. He was the first and last person you hear in the flick and his voice was a key part in moving the story along.

He's also a real-life radio DJ who had a big show in Knoxville for 25 years.

But get this, his son, Jake Thomas, is also an accomplished actor -- he played Lizzie McGuire's brother, Matt McGuire, on the Disney show. Bob also had a cameo on the show and wrote a few episodes.

Bob was also Jake's voice coach on Steven Spielberg's movie, 'A.I.' -- and spent months working alongside the Hollywood legend.

Bob (like Jacobs, is a Republican) is currently a Knox County Commissioner -- and if you think he's gonna roll over for a WWE superstar, he says you're sorely mistaken.

In fact, Thomas is extremely confident about his chances when the election goes down next year.

Clear eyes, full hearts (and tons of votes) ... can't lose.

Kelly Rowland Fur Protesters Crash Book Signing 'She's Got Blood On Her Hands!'

EXCLUSIVE

Fur protesters snuck up on Kelly Rowland at her book signing by pretending to be fans, then did a 180 and chanted she has blood on her hands.

Kelly was putting her Jane Hancock on copies of her new mom guide, 'Whoa, Baby,' Wednesday night at a bookstore in Ridgewood, NJ when all hell broke loose.

We're told protesters played it cool, asking for a photo with the Destiny's Child singer -- and that's when they unraveled their anti-fur posters, some of which were personalized for Kelly.

She played it cool ... standing off to the side as the protesters did their thing, and never engaged them in debate. Cops were not called, and they eventually were ushered out.
