White House Repeat Fence Jumper Marci Wahl Inspired by Other Jumpers Vows to Do it Again

3/27/2017 1:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327_white-house_fence_gettyThe woman who was twice arrested for attempting to jump a White House fence says she was inspired by the man who not only made it on the grounds for 17 minutes but even jiggled a doorknob.

Marci Wahl has just been charged with the crime of entering or remaining in a restricted building. True enough ... she never made it past the fence and in the first case her shoelaces became entangled on the spires and she dangled helplessly.

According to federal documents, obtained by TMZ, she said during an interview with Secret Service agents she was motivated by "the recent success" of other fence jumpers.

As for why she jumped the fence a second time after being taken into custody, she said she "lost track of where I was and was walking to the courthouse for a urinalysis appointment."

She told agents she was determined to speak with President Trump.

She went on to say she would stay in Washington D.C. until she felt bored, adding, "I feel like I am supposed to be here right now." She also said she plans on jumping the fence again, and when agents told her it was not the proper way of getting a meeting, she said she would contact her state senator.

Paul Walker Surfer Bros Beg City Council for 12 Foot Statue ... 'A Beacon of Headlights'

3/27/2017 11:51 AM PDT

Paul Walker could be standing tall in San Clemente thanks to some surfer bros who begged the City Council for a statue of their hero "in the midst of gnarly times."

Self-proclaimed freelance journalist Chad Kroeger made the pitch at last Tuesday's meeting, and his rationale for the 12 foot Paul statue is comedy gold ... and also, kinda touching. Chad's buddy gets up there too for some fond words on "unifying figure" Paul.

Dude, we can't even describe it ... you just have to watch this.

Tomi Lahren Negotiating Exit From Blaze

3/27/2017 11:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-tomi-lahren-the-blaze-TMZ-01Tomi Lahren and TheBlaze are finished with each other, and they're now deep in negotiations to settle up.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, after Glenn Beck suspended Tomi over her comment on "The View" -- that she was pro-choice -- Tomi went to honchos at TheBlaze and said she wanted out.

There's clearly bad blood. Sources over at TheBlaze say Tomi's getting trashed ... "She's too crazy for us." On her side there's talk about what's behind this -- jealousy and that she's clearly the breakout star.

We're told she has 6 months left on her contract and TheBlaze was willing to pay her out, but that would mean Tomi couldn't work until October. We're told both sides are negotiating her exit and she will get less than 6 months of remaining salary but she'll be able to take another job.

We're told the settlement will be struck sometime this week.

As for where Tomi will go ... probably somewhere -- she has almost 4 1/2 million Facebook followers.

White House Shoelace Fence Jumper Strikes Again ... Only Now At Treasury Building

3/26/2017 2:44 PM PDT
Breaking News

0326-white-house-GETTY-01The woman who dangled from her shoelaces last week trying to jump the White House fence has struck again ... this time gunning for a building about a football field away.

Marci Anderson Wahl was arrested again early Sunday morning after successfully scaling the White House fence near the Treasury Building adjacent to 15th Street, just East of the White House. The building is on the same grounds, enclosed by the same fence. 

0326-us-treasurey-building-sub-asset-01Cops picked up Wahl around 2:15 AM, and she was charged with unlawful entry and contempt of court. She reportedly had a backpack on her with a sleeping bag and other miscellaneous items. No weapons or hazardous materials were found.

You'll recall ... Wahl was arrested and charged this past Tuesday for trying to jump the White House fence, but got caught by her shoelaces and had to be helped down by Secret Service agents.

After being issued a stay away order, she was arrested this past Friday as well after walking near the White House. Hopefully the third time's a charm for her.

D.L. Hughley thinks Donald Trump failed to repeal Obamacare because the country got wise to the fact that the current plan protects more than just poor black people.

Trump Tower Swamped with Nonstop Bomb Threats ... Driving NYPD NUTS!!!

3/25/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0324-trump-tower-security-bomb-threat-fun-art-02Trump 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.

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.

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."
