Hughley was at LAX Friday and his message is clear ... he thinks Trump supporters were fine with taking health care away from African Americans, but then realized it affected them, too.
Trump Tower Swamped with Nonstop Bomb Threats ... Driving NYPD NUTS!!!
3/25/2017 1:00 AM PDT
Trump Tower's been inundated with bomb threats since Donald Trump became President ... and it's become a giant pain for the NYPD and Secret Service.
Law enforcement sources tell us NYPD's been getting an average of 3 bomb threats a week since Trump got sworn in ... and many if not most of them are coming from the same guy.
The NYPD, Secret Service and building security sweep the building each time ... complete with bomb-sniffing dogs. If a dog zeros in on a person or a bag, law enforcement checks it out.
So far, nothing has turned up, and it takes a lot of time and resources.
Law enforcement will only evacuate the building if the threat is deemed credible, but there have been no evacuations yet because the threats appeared hollow from the get-go.
We've reached out to NYPD and the Secret Service, so far no word back.
Sanaa Lathan Mainstream Media Ignored Missing D.C. Girls Because of Race
3/25/2017 12:50 AM PDT
Sanaa Lathan thinks the media has ignored the slew of young girls who have gone missing in Washington D.C. because of their race.
The "Love & Basketball" star was strong Friday as she left E Baldi in Bev Hills, singing the praises of social media for calling attention to what appears to be a massive tragedy with no end in sight.
She also makes it clear ... if the victims were white, they'd be on every newscast.
George Lopez Yeah I Insulted Ivanka ... So What?!
3/24/2017 2:45 PM PDT
George was at LAX Friday when he got into it with our photog, Charlie, who asked the comedian if he had any regrets over his 2-word comment. You'll recall, George posted an Instagram video showing 2 dogs mating.
In the comment section, someone wrote, "Yo @georgelopez when we gonna pimp Ivanka because backpage is calling her name right now." George replied, "she's ready!"
George isn't backtracking an inch.
Peyton Manning Slams Door on Political Career
3/24/2017 1:20 PM PDT
Peyton Manning says he has absolutely ZERO plans to run for political office in his post-NFL life ... saying he has NO IDEA where the rumors even started.
Rumors had been swirling for months that Peyton could run for senator in Tennessee in 2020 ... and John McCain even endorsed the idea, calling Manning an "American hero."
But Peyton put the senator talk to bed during the Adobe Summit in Vegas this week.
"I have no idea where that comes from. A few weeks ago I was gonna go run a team. Last week, I was gonna go be in the Senate ... next week, I'll probably be an astronaut."
To be clear, Manning added, "I have no interest in getting into the political world" ... but said he does want to continue to serve and give back to the communities.
He added, "Be careful what you believe."
Here's the video (go to the 4:00 mark).
WWE's Kane Running For Mayor ... In Tennessee
3/24/2017 11:02 AM PDT
There could be a Big Red Mayor in Tennessee next year ... 'cause WWE legend Kane is running for office!!
The 7-foot, 323-pound superstar is prepping to chokeslam the political game in his local Knox County, according to WCYB in Tennessee.
Kane -- AKA Glenn Jacobs -- is a Republican and filed paperwork earlier this month, kick-starting the campaign process. The election won't take place until May 2018.
As a member of The Authority, Kane was voted Most Hated Wrestler of the Year by Pro Wrestling Illustrated in 2013.
Better hope those voters don't live in Knox County.

We got Andy at LAX on his way to film the "Love Connection" reboot and asked him about the shade he threw Trump's way over Twitter.

Donald Trump Hawaii Tourism Not Hurt By #BoycottHawaii Hysteria
3/23/2017 12:20 AM PDT
Donald Trump supporters who vowed to boycott Hawaii after his travel ban was blocked by a Hawaiian federal judge have had no impact on the state's tourism industry ... at least so far.
We're told there was concern at the Hawaii Tourism Authority that travel to the Aloha state would take a hit after a federal judge in Hawaii blocked the President's travel order -- especially after the hashtag #BoycottHawaii started trending on Twitter.
The concern was allegedly so great the HTA reached out to travel sites like Expedia to see if the threatened boycott was having an impact ... the answer -- so far, no.
We're told despite hundreds of phone calls and emails from folks saying they wouldn't book travel to Hawaii ... there's no evidence of cancellations. The HTA cautions there could be an impact in the following months ... they just don't know.
The HTA actually supports the judge's decision, saying ... "We celebrate diversity and honor culture ... oppose the travel ban and we applaud the ruling of the U.S. District Court to prevent it from being implemented at this time.”
White House New Fence Jumper Dangled From Her Shoelaces
3/22/2017 11:54 AM PDT
The latest White House fence jumper was caught as she was hanging from the top of the fence by her shoelaces.
TMZ has obtained the incident report, which details the movements of the 38-year-old woman. It says she went back and forth, staring at the White House for a long period of time before making her move Tuesday at 10:50 PM.
The Secret Service agent who was watching her lost sight for a second and the next thing he knew she had caught her shoelaces on an iron spire and dangled helplessly on the inside of the fence. Agents helped her down before arresting her to keep her from falling on her head.
She told agents she was there to speak to the president.
She had a map of the White House, although the incident report does not explain whether the map showed the interior or exterior grounds.
As we reported, Congressman Jason Chaffetz told us, based on what he knew so far, the Secret Service followed protocol.
The White House Another Fence Jumper Gets Caught ... Literally
3/22/2017 6:32 AM PDT
Another man tried to charge the White House Tuesday night, but this time he was caught, and not just by the Secret Service.
TMZ has learned at 10:50 PM, a man tried jumping the fence on 15th Street, but, according to the Secret Service, he was "entangled in security features affixed to the top of the fence."
Congressman Jason Chaffetz put it in more common parlance for TMZ ... "He was up there dangling on the fence, and the Secret Service grabbed him."
Chaffetz says as far as he can see, protocol was followed on this one, but all the details are not in.
Sarah Palin Removes Kaepernick Article from Website ... 'Not Her Opinion'
3/22/2017 8:48 AM PDT
As we previously reported, a story went up on SarahPalin.com Wednesday morning titled, "SERIOUSLY? Colin Kaepernick Just Pulled ANOTHER Political Stunt."
The article was NOT written by Palin -- but it was posted on Sarah's official Facebook page with a comment saying, "And he wonders why he can't find a job."
Now, we're told Sarah did NOT have a personal role in greenlighting the story, posting it on her site or Facebook page, or adding the additional comment.
One source familiar with the situation tells us, "This is not a view that Governor Palin holds. She has a long history of volunteering for Meals on Wheels and donating to them."
"This was an opinion by a contributor to sarahpalin.com and as has since been removed."
We're told comments that Palin personally writes are signed with her initials.
Sarah Palin Kaepernick's Meals On Wheels Donation Is Shameless 'Political Stunt'
3/22/2017 6:29 AM PDT
The former Alaska governor just put her seal of approval on an anti-Kaep article posted on her website, SarahPalin.com titled, "SERIOUSLY? Colin Kaepernick Just Pulled ANOTHER Political Stunt."
The article, written by Mary Kate Knorr, essentially calls BS on reports Donald Trump is defunding the charity -- before getting back to why she thinks Colin sucks.
"His last stunt cost him the respect of most NFL officials, as teams across the country have chosen not to offer Kaepernick a contract following his kneeling-during-the-National-Anthem stunt last year."
Sarah commented on the article on her Facebook page ... saying, "And he wonders why he can’t find a job."
As for Colin, he has not commented on the donation ... but it was confirmed by Meals on Wheels.
