Prez Obama Slays at White House Correspondents Dinner

5/1/2016 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama's swan song at the White House Correspondent's Dinner did not disappoint, as he skewered politicians and pop culture icons alike.

Hillary, Donald and Ted did not escape easily. The Prez was actually kinder to Kendall Jenner, who for some reason was part of the Barnum & Bailey event. 

He's 'SNL' worthy.


Scientology Leader's Father Snapped in Nazi Uniform Son Disowns Him

4/29/2016 6:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

429-ron-miscavige-tmzThe father of Scientology leader David Miscavige appeared on 20/20 Friday night as a victim of his son's wrath, but sources connected with the Church say his dad is the real bad guy.

Church sources tout this pic of Ronald Miscavige in a Nazi uniform, taken a few years back. They also point to several letters sent to a publisher of a book Ronald wrote about his time in Scientology, warning them Ronald was a racist who was not afraid to hurl the n-word. One of the musicians claims one of Ronald's favorite lines was to sing and chant, "There is a n***** in the alley with a hard-on, spread the lard on, rub it in." They say he'd sing it to the tune of the National Emblem March.

Ron's people tell us the letters were sent at the behest of the Church to block publication of the book.

A rep for the church tells TMZ "The behavior exhibited in this photo and described in the letters is an anathema to David Miscavige and was what compelled him to try to find a way to keep his father in check." The rep says David has now disowned his dad. 

Ronald has said for several years ... when he quit the Church they hired private investigators to keep tabs on him. A church attorney said it hired the guys, not David ... and didn't even tell him.  However, as we reported earlier, cops say when they questioned the P.I.'s, one of them said when they thought Ron was having a heart attack they spoke with David who told them not to call 911 ... just to let him die. 

MLB's Aroldis Chapman I'm American, Baby ... Granted Citizenship

4/29/2016 10:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

429-aroldis-chapman-instagramAroldis Chapman now bleeds red, white and blue ... even though he kinda already did (see: Cuba's flag) ... because the Cuban-born pitcher is now a full-fledged U.S. citizen. 

The NY Yankees fireballer -- nicknamed the "Cuban Missle" -- defected from Cuba (by way of the Netherlands) back in 2009 ... and has made it his mission to get full citizenship. 

Well, Friday it finally happened ... and the 28-year-old proudly announced it on social media. 

"Today is a very important day for me and I want to share it with all of you," Chapman wrote.

"Today April 29, 2016 I've became a U.S. Citizen and I want to thanks God and this great nation for the opportunities it has offer me and my family. Very happy to say that I'm a U.S. Citizen."

42716-pacquiao-aquino-gettyManny Pacquiao and his family were on the hit list of the Muslim extremist group that beheaded a Canadian hostage ... according to the president of the Philippines.

Prez Benigno Aquino III revealed the militant group Abu Sayyaf made plans to assassinate him and "they allegedly even hatched plots to kidnap Manny Pacquiao or one of his children."

Aquino discussed efforts Wednesday to shut down the militants who killed one hostage on Monday, and are still holding about 20 other foreign hostages.

The president suggested the terrorists might have intended to use Manny, and even the president's own sister as bargaining chips to get their own cohorts released from prisons.

Donald Trump Which House He Likes More His, Or the White One

4/27/2016 6:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump has some awesome houses, including Mar-a-Lago, which is pretty spectacular. Trump told our photog Tuesday night at the TIME 100 Gala in NY how his homes stack up to The White House.

We also asked him what TV show is his must watch. It's pretty clear he'll get the nom, and could be prez, so his choice is a little worrisome.

Chris Christie Full Springsteen Dance Party

4/26/2016 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gov. Chris Christie busted out his 'Dads Gone Wild' moves to support Bruce Springsteen, and let's just say ... it's a good thing he's no longer running for president.

Springsteen played the Barclays Center in Brooklyn Monday night -- and damn near got upstaged by Christie's nonstop dancing ... which was captured by Boss fans all over the arena.

We'll cut him some slack ... it's pretty much part of the oath for a NJ governor to cheer his ass off for Springsteen at all times, regardless of politics.

We're guessing Christie dodged bridge and tunnel traffic to get to the show.

YG Secret Service On My Ass Over 'F*** Trump!'

4/25/2016 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

YG's got a new audience hanging on his every word, and snooping to find out his lyrics before they're released to the public -- and that would be the Secret Service, according to YG.

We caught up with the rapper at LAX and asked if Donald Trump has reached out about "F**k Trump" ... the protest song he and Nipsey Hussle recorded. YG said the Donald hasn't holla'd, and then revealed the feds are crawling up in his biz.  

Check it out ... it sure sounds like the government is very worried about the message in his music -- but YG thinks they're missing the real point to the song.

Team Trump just announced 75-year-old Knight will join Donald at a rally in Indianapolis on Wednesday -- one week before Indiana's primary. 

Over the weekend, Trump referred to Knight as a "great coach" -- saying he's "tough, smart, strong."

The Donald is still going to bat for his boy Tom Brady -- opening up a rally in Rhode Island Monday by demanding, "LEAVE TOM BRADY ALONE!"

Trump has been a Brady supporter for a while -- and backed his longtime friend after the initial "Deflategate" suspension last year. 

So now, with an appeals court ruling that Brady must serve the penalty -- Trump began his rally this morning with another staunch defense of the Patriots QB. 

The brofest isn't one-sided ... remember, Brady had Trump's campaign hat proudly displayed in his locker ... though he has not given Trump his official endorsement.

... yet.

4/25/2016 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

T.I. told us something we didn't know ... even though he's a convicted felon, he's allowed to vote.

We got the rapper at LAX Sunday and he schooled us on voting rights. He's right ... once a felon is off parole, they can re-register to vote.

He's voted for Obama both times, and has a favorite in this year's election.

Dan Bilzerian Hey Hillary ... Your Press Plane Has Major Cooties!

4/24/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hillary Clinton's press corp might wanna grab some latex -- gloves that is -- 'cause the private plane on which they're riding belongs to Dan Bilzerian, famous for his Playboy-esque parties in the sky.

We did some checking, and the the tail number matches the one registered to Bilzerian's company, Goat Airways LLC. A charter company made a deal with Hillary's campaign org. to lease the plane.

Check it out ... the dirty bird appears in episode 11 of Showtime's "The Circus" with political strategist Mark McKinnon grumbling the press doesn't ride on the same plane as Hillary.

Now we know why.
