Trump to Kim Jong-un Yes, One False Move And We'll Nuke You

8/9/2017 6:43 AM PDT

Donald Trump just warned North Korea ... he's not only renovating the White House air-conditioning system, he's doing the same to our nuclear arsenal.

Trump's latest tweet -- "My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before" -- is the latest act of brinkmanship between the U.S. and North Korea.

Trump doesn't say he's completed the act of renovating our arsenal -- that takes way longer than 7 months -- but he claims he began the process back in January. It's hard to know how long anything takes to develop or renovate in the nuclear world ... no one thought North Korea could do what it's now doing.

Trump went on to say, "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world."

He seems to be making it clear ... when he said Tuesday that further threats by North Korea would be met by "fire and fury," he was talking nuclear bombs.

'The Wire' Actor J.D. Williams Colin Kaepernick Screwed Black QBs (Update)

8/8/2017 8:03 AM PDT

9:20 AM PT -- J.D. tells TMZ Sports he meant Kaep was screwing up the owners' money, not the money for black QBs. Colin Kaepernick's protest is screwing up the NFL ecosystem for black QBs and costing them major money ... so says "The Wire" actor J.D. Williams who says Colin's hurting more than he's helping.

Williams has been in a ton of stuff, but he's most famous for playing street soldier Bodie Broadus for four seasons on HBO's "The Wire."

Williams took to his Twitter moments ago and fired off a series of tweets doing something most black celebrities have shied away from doing ... criticizing Colin Kaepernick's protest.

"I appreciate Kaepernicks' sentiment and attempt at a statement but he didn't HAVE to sacrifice his career in THAT way. Nice try?"

"We do REMEMBER black QBs in the NFL weren't even a THING really until about 7 yrs ago right? Kaep f**ked up their money ... with a big ass fro."

He didn't stop there, going on to imply Colin's protest wasn't a smart thing to do, because his employer (the NFL) doesn't care about his politics.

Spike Lee is now promoting a huge rally for Kaep at NFL headquarters later this month -- don't save a spot for J.D. though.

Spike Lee Pushing Rally for Colin Kaepernick ... at NFL HQ

Spike Lee is clearly fed up that Colin Kaepernick is unemployed -- and now he's going to bat for the QB. 

The legendary director of movies like "Do the Right Thing," "Jungle Fever" and "Malcolm X" is promoting an event called, "United We Stand. Rally for Colin Kaepernick."

It's all going down on Wednesday, August 23 in front of NFL Headquarters in NY. Multiple organizations are on board -- including the Justice League NYC and the Empowerment Movement. 

The Justice League is the same organization that made the "I Can't Breathe" shirts that a bunch of athletes wore in the wake of the Eric Garner killing.

Kellyanne Conway Work Hard ... Play Hard

8/6/2017 1:47 PM PDT

Kellyanne Conway is following President Trump's lead by squeezing in some fun in the sun while also knocking out her daily White House duties.

Kellyanne was spotted lounging on a beach Sunday in Ventnor, New Jersey - where she owns a beach house - hours after she yakked it up on the Sunday morning talk shows. 

Kellyanne didn't squander precious beach time by going to a studio ... she did her live shots from her beach home, steps away from the sand. 

Trump is nearby after a mass exodus from the White House for major renovations involving heating and air conditioning. 

Chris Christie was nowhere in sight ... hey, when you have a beach to yourself, sunbathers all around you suck. 

Vladimir Putin Shirtless on Vacay Fishin' for a Compliment

8/5/2017 7:21 AM PDT

Vladimir Putin wants to show the world what he's made of ... which is now a little wrinkly.

The Russian Prez is vacationing in Siberia ... catching both rays and fish.

He seems super chill ... clearly not bothered by any grand jury investigation into election meddling. Trump's also on vacation, but the prospects of getting a shot of him without his shirt are slim.

Putin likes to show the goods ... notably riding a horse barebacked back in 2009.

Your move, Justin Trudeau.  

Caitlyn Jenner Hat Was Comedy of Errors I Hate Trump

8/5/2017 1:00 AM PDT

Caitlyn Jenner did not wear a "Make America Great Again" hat Thursday as a show of support for Donald Trump ... it was a mistake tied to golf, a convertible, Starbucks and a purse.

Caitlyn tells TMZ she drove from her Malibu home to Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA, in a 1960 Austin-Healey convertible. Before leaving home she realized she needed a hat ... something better than a golf visor to protect her hair. So she rummaged through the 10 hats in her closet and grabbed one without looking at the stitching.

She says when she got to the club she threw the hat on the floor of the car, spent an hour or so hitting some balls and left. When she got to the car she grabbed the hat, saw the inscription and realized what she had done.

She tells us she was horrified because she now detests Trump after he tweeted about the military transgender ban. Caitlyn says, "What he's doing to our community is absolutely f***ing awful."

But Caitlyn had a dilemma on her hands ... wear the hat home or screw up her 'do. She chose the former, thinking no one was going to spot her. She wanted to stop at a Starbucks for a latte but exercised caution ... a mile from the coffee joint she switched to the golf visor and walked inside.

When Caitlyn left, she switched again, deciding to wear the Trump hat home. She got halfway to her property when she realized she left her purse at Starbucks, which contained, among other things, her cellphone. Caitlyn panicked and raced back to retrieve her purse, forgetting she was wearing the hat.

She ran inside, grabbed the purse and drove home. At some point she realized she still had the hat on but thought she could make it back undetected. She was wrong. Caitlyn says a photog snapped the pic somewhere between Starbucks and her Malibu home.

As for what to do with the hat, she's thinking of signing it and auctioning it off and giving the proceeds to a transgender cause. On the other hand, she might just rip it up or burn it.

Caitlyn says, "I apologize to all of the trans community. I made a mistake. I will never do it again and I'm getting rid of the hat."

Kardashian Family Caitlyn's a Transgender Traitor

8/4/2017 11:33 AM PDT

The Kardashian family believes Caitlyn Jenner has betrayed the transgender community by sticking with Donald Trump after the President vowed to ban transgender soldiers from the military.

Sources with first-hand knowledge tell us, Caitlyn's latest stunt -- parading around Malibu wearing a "Make America Great Again" cap is an affront to the community she claims to champion. The family believes Caitlyn promotes transgender rights in a very selective way -- when it helps her.

They think she's become heartless by flaunting views that hurt the LGBT community and it reaffirms they want nothing to do with her.

As one source said ... "Caitlyn has always been about Caitlyn."

Anthony Scaramucci He's Going Hollywood 'Attack of the Swamp Monsters'

8/4/2017 7:49 AM PDT

Anthony Scaramucci is making the most of his 10 days as White House Communications Director, because we've learned he wants to turn his moment in the sun into a TV series or feature film.

We've learned a major Hollywood producer has been in touch with Scaramucci to produce a White House version of "Spin City." There are 2 working titles -- "10 Days in July" and "Attack of the Swamp Monsters." Our vote is #2.

We're told the initial feeling is the concept could work as a sitcom series or a feature.

The concept is an outsider assuming power in D.C. to the great dismay of longtime political hacks who go straight for the jugular.

Judge Mathis Mueller Grand Jury 'Terrible Sign' for Trump

8/4/2017 7:58 AM PDT

Judge Mathis thinks Donald Trump is in big trouble because Special Counsel Robert Mueller smells a crime.

We got the TV jurist leaving Williams Sonoma in Bev Hills Thursday and asked him about the significance of the grand jury that will hear testimony about contacts with Russian officials and presumably a lot more.

Mathis makes it clear ... prosecutors hold all the cards in these proceedings. And he makes something else clear ... Trump needs to zip it with any witness who might appear before the grand jury ... or else.

Caitlyn Jenner I'm Still Team Trump Despite Transgender Ban

8/4/2017 6:39 AM PDT

Caitlyn Jenner isn't letting the whole transgender ban thing get in the way of what appears to be her undying support for President Trump.

Jenner was out and about Thursday, in a sporty car sporting a "Make America Great Again" hat.

It's pretty stunning, because she went ham on the Prez after his transgender military ban tweets, saying, "I believe every American should be outraged by the disrespect shown to those people wearing our country's uniform."  

Jenner's been a die-hard Republican for a long time, and she's gotten a lot of heat from the transgender community for not passionately carrying the torch.  

This one's gonna stoke the fire.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen Hey, Prez How Dare You Call My State 'Drug Infested'

8/4/2017 12:40 AM PDT

New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen is outraged at Donald Trump's jab at her state, and she's not afraid to show it.

Our photog got the Senator at the Capitol Thursday, and she was none too pleased that President Trump told the Mexican President that N.H. is a "drug infested den."

Shaheen clearly feels Trump is part of the problem, spending his time trashing people and places rather than solving real problems like health care for the poor.

Trump's comments surfaced in transcripts from a January phone call he had with the Mexican Prez.

Sean Spicer I'll Pass On the Paso Doble ... Turns Down 'DWTS'!!!

8/3/2017 3:41 PM PDT

Sean Spicer will NOT be bringing his dancing talents -- or lack thereof -- to the "Dancing with the Stars" ballroom ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Spicer tell us the former White House Press Secretary was flattered by the opportunity, but because he believes he'll have an "overwhelming number of commitments in the Fall," he declined the offer.

As for whether Spicey had the skills to truly compete on 'DWTS' -- our source said, "He's not a good dancer."

That hasn't stopped plenty of other celebrities, but we're told Sean just didn't think he had the time it would require. So, no D.C. two-stepping on 'DWTS' this season.

Unless, the Mooch is interested!

Anthony Scaramucci 'Insane' Over White House Leaks Audio Released

8/3/2017 9:57 AM PDT
Breaking News

Anthony Scaramucci's expletive-laced rant to a reporter was recorded, and The New Yorker just released the audio.

The reporter, Ryan Lizza, captured his phone convo with Scaramucci last week, and you can hear the then-White House Communications Director's now infamous reference ... "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own c**k."

The Mooch also accused Reince Priebus of repeatedly c**kblocking him from landing his White House gig. As bad as it sounds, Scaramucci comes off as relatively calm on the audio ... even as he's dropping c-bombs and other obscenities. 

Scaramucci resigned from his post Monday. As we told you, rumors he was dating FOX News' Kimberly Guilfoyle might've been the last straw.
