John Legend Trump's Worst Person Ever As For Obama's Wall St. Speech ...

4/26/2017 6:27 AM PDT

John Legend detests Donald Trump, so much so that the prez has earned a distinction -- worst person Legend has ever encountered in public life.

John's 100 day report card is predictable ... F, F, F, F, F. 

As for Obama pocketing $400k for a Wall St. speech, Legend doesn't think there's anything wrong with it ... because you can be against Wall St. corruption and not generally against Wall St.

Safe to say ... Legend has written Trump off not just for 100 days, but for 4 years.

Ted Cruz El Chapo Should Pay For the Wall Let's Make it a Law!

4/25/2017 5:14 PM PDT

Ted Cruz has the perfect solution on how to pay for Donald Trump's border wall ... pass a law to use El Chapo's billions and loot from other lords to underwrite construction.

The Texas senator introduced a new bill Tuesday called the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act -- aka the EL CHAPO Act ... which does just that.

The bill would allow the U.S. to use all cash forfeited by drug lords to pay for the wall and border security.

According to Ted ... the U.S. is already gunning for more than $14 billion in drug money and other profits that the Mexican drug lords collected, and Cruz says that will go a long way toward the estimated $20 plus billion in construction costs.

The government is on the verge of shutting down this week, in part because of funding for the border wall project. Looks like Ted's trying to get creative with a solution.

Scott Baio Backlash Over My Erin/Drugs Comments Fueled Purely by Trump Haters

4/25/2017 2:28 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Baio thinks much of the backlash he's gotten for his comments about Erin Moran's drug issues is driven by his ties to Donald Trump.

Scott told us liberals have been attacking him for linking his former co-star's death to a drug overdose during a radio interview -- but says his haters' political biases are seeping through.

The attacks don't appear to faze him though. Although it turns out Erin died from cancer -- and not substance abuse problems -- he says it doesn't change his strong feelings about the dangers of drugs.

Barack Obama $400k Fee for Wall Street Speech ... Hypocrisy?

4/25/2017 2:19 PM PDT
Breaking News

Barack Obama's getting in bed with Wall Street ... he's reportedly getting $400,000 to address a group of people he once referred to as "fat cats."

Obama's signed on to be the keynote speaker at a Wall Street health care conference run by Cantor Fitzgerald, and the news has the former president's critics chomping at the bit. He's made no secret of his disdain for some Wall Street bankers.

FOX Business says Obama's signed on the dotted line, but final details are still being ironed out before a formal announcement.

Pretty sweet gig though ... that's an entire year of POTUS salary in a single day. It's also double what Hillary Clinton previously commanded on the speech circuit.

Malia Obama Fan Who Popped Question Off The Hook in Arrest

4/25/2017 1:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Malia Obama's obsessed fan kept his distance from her, and that's saving his ass from being charged with a crime ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops were considering booking Jair Nilton Cardoso for stalking and harassment, but ultimately decided his failed attempts to get close to the former first daughter didn't rise to the level of a crime.

As we reported ... the 30-year-old man was detained after showing up to Malia's Weinstein Company office with a sign that read, "Will you marry me?". We're told cops say Cardoso never posed a verbal or physical threat because he never got any closer than standing outside the office.

We're told Cardoso was taken to a NYC hospital for psychiatric evaluation.

Talib Kweli America Wanted Payback for 'N**** President' ... That's Why Trump Won

4/25/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Talib Kweli thinks Donald Trump's rise to the White House was powered by America's desire for revenge after Barack Obama was elected the first African-American president.

Talib was brutally honest at LAX Monday ... about President Trump's first 100 days in office, and his belief the bar is set incredibly low for white Commanders in Chief. He also referred to Obama as the n-word president, so ... there's that.  

Check out the rant -- Talib does say there's a way for Trump to turn things around, but his demands are lengthy. 

President Trump to Astronaut Drinkable Urine?!? ... 'Better You Than Me'

4/24/2017 9:08 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump was pretty dumbfounded after learning NASA astronauts are drinking their own urine in space ... and he has a message for them -- "Better you than me!!"

The prez on Monday asked Peggy Whitson -- who video chatted as the new NASA record holder for most days in space -- what astronauts are learning up there.

Peggy revealed this golden nugget -- astronauts are purifying their urine to make it drinkable!

Trump's reaction to the news is written all over his face, but he pulled it together to voice the perfect comeback.

Kyrie Irving Clowned By Ohio Governor Over Flat Earth Comments

4/24/2017 7:15 AM PDT
Breaking News

You'd think Kyrie Irving would get a pardon in Ohio over his whole "The Earth is flat" comments -- but, nah ... that ain't happening.

The latest person to roast the Cleveland Cavs star over his insanely misguided comments is Ohio governor John Kasich ... who happens to be a pretty big Kyrie fan!

But even Kasich couldn't help himself from taking a shot at the NBA superstar over the weekend. 

At least he went softer than notorious smart guy Neil deGrasse Tyson, who said all flat-Earthers should be launched into space!

Donald Trump Walk of Fame Star Vandalized Again ... 'F' Marks the Spot

4/23/2017 2:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was vandalized again, only this time with a magic marker ... instead of a pick ax. 

Someone scribbled "F*** Trump" on the President's star on Hollywood Blvd. at some point this weekend. Law enforcement sources at LAPD tell us tell us they were not aware of the vandalism. 

You'll recall ... James Otis utterly destroyed Trump's star with a pick ax back in October, and even copped to the crime. We broke the story ... he ended up avoiding jail time in a plea bargain. 

After Otis' handiwork the whole star had to be replaced -- and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce says they run about $30k. 

This time shouldn't take more than a little solvent and a lot of elbow grease.  

Bill Clinton Trolls Trump ... I Was Bugged Too, Donald!

4/23/2017 1:32 PM PDT

Bill Clinton's got a new bug on the lawn of the Clinton Center ... and a new joke for Donald Trump too.

Bill posed with a big ole grasshopper recently installed on the premises in Little Rock. He tweeted ... "BREAKING: We just learned that the @ClintonCenter has been bugged."

He was clearly taking a jab at Trump's claim Obama had Trump Tower wiretapped during the 2016 election. 

BTW ... the critter Bill's posing with is part of the Clinton Center's Xtreme BUGS exhibit, which opened Saturday in honor of Earth Day.

We're guessing Donald's itching to respond.

Donte Stallworth Gisele Didn't Veto Brady's WH Visit ... He's Still Trump's Boy

4/23/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Brady didn't get his White House visit sacked by his supermodel wife ... that's according to his ex-teammate, Donte Stallworth, who tells TMZ Sports Brady would never duck his guy, Donald Trump.

Brady skipped the Patriots trip to the WH earlier this week and, although he said it was a family matter that kept him away, there's been speculation Gisele's hatred of the Donald is the real reason.

Stallworth says no, telling us he knows firsthand how close Trump and Brady are ... and it's a friendship Donte can't see eroding anytime soon.

FYI -- Trump didn't mention Brady once during his address to the media at the White House, so maybe a boys' trip to Mar-a-Lago is in order, just to be sure.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Kapernick Blackballed? 'Hard to Say'

4/21/2017 9:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar tells TMZ Sports it's "hard to say" if Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed by the NFL ... and says we'll just have to "wait and see" if he gets hired before the 2017 season. 

Kareem has been outspoken about the Kaepernick situation in the past -- he even wrote an article about Kaep's protests in The Washington Post

But he's not ready to declare the NFL anti-Kaep yet ... and when we saw him at the Joe Torre Safe at Home event in L.A., the NBA legend said we'd have to speak with someone "in management" to get a better idea. 

Well, we did that ... we talked to Denver Broncos exec John Elway who shot down the idea that Kaepernick's protest has anything to do with his current state of unemployment.

But several players, including Terrell Suggs, aren't buying Elway's explanation ... telling TMZ Sports he IS getting punished for his protest. Suggs told Kaep to stay strong

As for whether Kareem agrees with Jim Harbaugh -- who said Kaep should be celebrated for his protest -- Kareem has thoughts on that too. 

Lance Bass We Gotta Step Up And Help Gays in Chechnya

4/20/2017 10:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lance Bass is sickened by news of gay concentration camps in Chechnya, and thinks it's time for more U.S. politicians to speak up and put a stop to it.

Lance tackled the brutal topic Thursday morning, telling us the alleged brutality -- the rounding up of gay men in the Russian republic -- is just now starting to get the necessary attention.

He thanked one high profile politician for getting word out, but clearly wants more done -- and quickly. Lance also had a message of solidarity for those scared for their lives right now.
