Donald Trump Calls BS on Sexual Blackmail Story 'I'm a Germaphobe'!!!

1/11/2017 8:51 AM PST

Donald Trump just obtusely addressed reports posted by some media, which claim the Russians have graphic sexual material on the President-elect, saying simply, "I'm a germaphobe."

Trump scoffed at unconfirmed reports that Putin has anything on him, and explained especially when he goes to foreign countries, he's clear with his entire staff they all need to be on their best behavior because of secretly placed cameras.

Then he indirectly addressed what a few outlets have been reporting ... 

Trump says the leaks are shameful and the allegations are made up.

Chicago Cubs Squeezing In White House Visit ... Right Before Trump

Breaking News

0111-chicago-cubs-whitehouse-gettyThe Chicago Cubs have officially scheduled their White House visit after winning the World Series ... and it happens to be going down 4 DAYS before President Obama leaves office. 

A team official has confirmed the World Series champs will get to hang with POTUS -- a Chicago native (but a Sox fan) -- on January 16. They will be the last professional team to visit during Obama's term.

Donald Trump takes office on the 20th. 

What's interesting ... the Ricketts family, who own the Cubs, have sparred with Trump in the past. 

In fact, Trump tweeted back in February, "I hear the Rickets family, who own the Chicago Cubs, are secretly spending $'s against me. They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!"

The Ricketts family has said Trump is wrong about hidden dirt. 

Still, unclear if the beef had anything to do with the timing of the White House visit ... but it's interesting.

Donald Trump is pointing a suspicious finger at America's intelligence agencies for possibly leaking that "fake" Russian dossier.

The Prez-elect started his NY news conference by addressing the report, which he and several news outlets have dismissed as completely unfounded -- and immediately went after whoever put out the alleged info Vladimir Putin has on him.

Trump called the leak a "tremendous blot" on U.S. intelligence ... IF it came from them.

The first week in the White House just got more interesting.

Donald Trump Feds Probe Allegations Russia has Compromising Info on Trump Trump Says 'Fake News'

1/11/2017 5:55 AM PST

0111-donald-trump-tmz-02The FBI and other agencies are reportedly investigating allegations the Russians have a compromising dossier on Donald Trump, but the Prez-elect now says it's all "fake news" disseminated by his rivals.

CNN reports the Feds are calling the information "credible" ... compiled by a British intelligence operative who worked for the Democrats during the election. The allegations include what CNN says is a possible blackmail attempt by President Vladimir Putin, using "compromising information" on Trump.

Some outlets have published what they call "unconfirmed" salacious allegations against Trump, but add some of the information from the British intelligence operative is erroneous.

As for Trump, he tweeted, citing Russian officials who say the story is "A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE," adding "Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to 'leak' into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?"

Trump will clearly be asked about the story at his news conference at 11:00 ET. We'll be live streaming.

Charlie Sheen Trump Presidency Will Crash & Burn ... Legally Speaking

1/11/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump's opponents better get their jabs in now, 'cause they won't have him in the White House for too long ... if renowned political pundit Charlie Sheen is right.

When we got Charlie at LAX he went off about Meryl Streep's attack on Trump, and quickly piled on ... calling out the Prez-elect for missing 2 key qualities.

As for the nation moving forward -- Charlie sees only one word in Trump's future. Think Tricky Dick or Bubba.

It's interesting -- some huge celebs, like Oprah, have held their tongues on Trump for fear of incurring his Twitter wrath. Clearly, that ain't Charlie.

Two men dressed as hooded Klansmen just disrupted Jeff Sessions' Senate hearing on Capitol Hill.

The chaos ensued almost immediately after Sessions -- Donald Trump's pick for Attorney General -- entered the chambers for his confirmation hearing ... with the guys standing on their chairs showing mock support for the Alabama senator.

Check it out ... the 2 men are also wearing foam fingers with "Go, Jeffie Boy" and shouting "You can't arrest me. I'm white!" as cops step in.

Charlie Sheen I Got No Beef With Ted Cruz Over Sheen/Cruz 2020 Diss

1/10/2017 6:47 AM PST

Charlie Sheen has no bad blood with Ted Cruz after the Texas Senator took a jab at him and his dad ... in fact, Charlie even has a few nice things to say about the guy.

Charlie was heading into Catch Monday night in L.A. for Crackle's "Mad Families" premiere party and told our photog he was kidding when he tweeted he and Cruz should dethrone Trump on the 2020 presidential ticket.  

Ted shot down the suggestion immediately using a pic from Martin Sheen's "West Wing" days, but Charlie was clearly impressed by Cruz's wit and humor.

Can't say the same for his feelings on Trump though.

Ex-Inauguration Announcer Screw Trump ... I Scored a New Job!

1/10/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Longtime inaugural announcer Charlie Brotman is pissed Donald Trump fired him from the post he's held for 60 years, but tells us he'll still be working come Jan. 20.

The 89-year-old announcer, who's MC'd presidential inaugurations since Dwight D. Eisenhower, said he thought about suicide when he found out Trump gave him the boot.

We're happy to report ... Charlie's bouncing back, and will have a new gig on the big day. It's not as prestigious as being the official guy -- he calls it being a "make-believe" announcer -- but it pays.  

Charlie says he knows why Trump's tapped MLB announcer Steve Ray instead of him, and he thinks it smacks of political payback.

Bottom line: no Vin Scully-esque send-off for Charlie, but he's still got a job!

God knows it's hard out there for octogenarians.

UFC's Dana White Fires Back at 'Uppity, 80-Year-Old' Meryl Streep

1/9/2017 9:38 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dana White says Meryl Streep is an "uppity 80-year-old lady" who was completely WRONG when she took a shot at MMA during the Golden Globes.

We spoke with the UFC honcho about Meryl's comments Sunday night -- when she was ripping Donald Trump's immigration plans and said if we kick out foreigners, "you'll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts."

White objects in a BIG WAY -- calling the dig at his sport "stupid" and "uneducated."

We also asked if he thought Meryl targeted MMA because Dana gave a speech for Trump at the Republican National Convention.

Donald Trump Fires Back at Meryl Streep She's an 'Overrated' Hillary Flunky

1/9/2017 6:27 AM PST

Donald Trump isn't taking Meryl Streep's Golden Globes attack lying down -- he's dismissing her as a Hillary Clinton "flunky."

Streep used her acceptance speech for the Cecile B. DeMille Award to bash the President-elect for his campaign tactics ... especially his infamous run-in with a disabled reporter. The speech got a huge response in the room ... and, apparently, at Trump Tower.

Trump called her, "One of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big."

His Twitter reply continued ... "For the 100th time, I never 'mocked' a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him "groveling" when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad."

His right hand woman, Kellyanne Conway, has also joined the fray.
