Don't Blame Us, Blame Racist Web

For 'N***a House' Mistake

5/21/2015 3:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0521_google_maps_white_house-2Google finally got to the bottom of that whole "n***a house" map search screw up, and it says the culprit is none other than YOU ... if you're a racist who frequently uses those words on the Internet.

Here's the explanation from a Google spokesperson, "Our ranking systems are designed to return results that match a person's query. For Maps, this means using content about businesses and other public places from across the web."

In non-egghead speak -- Google Maps matches searches for "White House" with words commonly used when people discuss the White House in public Internet discussions.

If their logic is accurate ... there are a ton of web users calling President Obama's residence the "n***a house." Sad to say ... that's probably true.

Google says it's working on the "failure in our system" -- but adds it will take a while for the fix to roll out.

U.S. Supreme Court

Google Says

They're a Bunch of Dumb F***s!!!

Google is pissing off another branch of our government, because if you live in D.C. and type in "dumb f***" on Google Maps, the United States Supreme Court pops up.

Unlike the White House -- where anyone in the U.S. can type "N***a House" and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue pops up -- the Supreme Court only appears in Washington D.C. Google says it's working on the "n" word problem.

As for "dumb f***," it seems to change regionally. In California, if you search "dumb f***" you get Cal Poly Pomona.

Check what comes up in your area. It's fun.

Romney vs. Holyfield

Bumble in the Jungle!!!

5/16/2015 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mitt Romney and Evander Holyfield squared off in a boxing ring Friday night, and guess who went down?  HINT -- it' wasn't Mitt.

The video is awesome.  The former Presidential candidate and the 5-time world champ went toe-to-toe for 2, fun-filled rounds in Salt Lake City as a big crowd cheered and jeered.  And what a shock when someone threw in the towel.

Mitt entered the arena to Gloria Gaynor's, "I Will Survive."

Proceeds from the fight went to a charity to cure blindness.

DEFINITELY more entertaining than Mayweather/Pacquiao.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

I Got Governor John Kasich

In The Palm of My Hand!

5/16/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Arnold Schwarzenegger had lunch with his ol' pal, likely Republican presidential candidate John Kasich, and we're told Arnold schooled him about the ins and outs of national politics.

The former Cali Gov and the current Ohio governor chowed down at The Palm in Bev Hills Friday. Our sources say Arnold downloaded Kasich on national politics and how to run a national campaign, even though Arnold's never run one before.

On their way out, they said it was just 2 old friends sharing a meal. But we know it was a lot more.

Louisiana Congressman

I WANNA COACH THE PELICANS

... For Real

5/14/2015 6:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dell Demps can CALL OFF THE SEARCH for the new head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans -- because Louisiana congressman Cedric Richmond says HE'S the man for the job ... seriously! 

Richmond (D-LA) was leaving Capitol Hill ... when he told us why he's the perfect candidate ... after all, he's got plenty of experience as a volunteer hoops coach back home in the Big Easy. 

Plus, he says he could DEFINITELY build a winning team around Anthony Davis

And if that's not enough, Richmond already has the support of ANOTHER congressman ... Rep. Curt Clawson (R-FL) ... who was a real deal college basketball star at Purdue! 

In fact, Clawson tells us Richmond can PLAY -- saying he's "among the two REAL basketball players in the House." 

You gotta watch this clip -- these guys are like the new Curry and Thompson! 

Pres. Candidate Dr. Ben Carson

My Latest Speech Lacks Teeth

EXCLUSIVE

0513-main-carson-tmz-01Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson does not lack wisdom, but incisors are a different story.

The Republican hopeful -- who made a name for himself in 1987 as the first neurosurgeon to separate twins conjoined at the head -- was stumping at Tommy's Country Ham House in Greenville, South Carolina where he chowed down on scrambled eggs, grits and ham biscuits when he noticed a bonus on his plate ... his front tooth had fallen out. 

0513-subasset-carson-tmz-01The good doc stared into his plate, thought for a second then discretely placed the errant chomper into his shirt pocket. 

Carson then stood up and delivered an impassioned speech ... with a hint of whistle.

'Gossip Girl' Star Kelly Rutherford

Help Me, Obama!

Get My Kids Outta Monaco

5/13/2015 1:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Former "Gossip Girl" star Kelly Rutherford hopes President Obama can do what the legal system hasn't ... get her kids out of Monaco, and end an international custody war with her ex-husband.

Kelly was on TMZ Live talking about the online petition encouraging the prez to step in on her behalf. She finally got the required 100,000 signatures on Tuesday when Kim Kardashian signed and retweeted it to her legion of fans.

Kelly's been battling Daniel Giersch ever since he got a California court's permission years ago to take their son and daughter to France. Giersch claimed he couldn't re-enter the U.S. due to visa issues. Kelly says he's now had their kids declared "habitual residents" of Monaco.

She's desperate for the State Department to throw her a bone, and protect her children's rights as U.S. citizens. It's a crazy saga ... check out her plea to Obama.

"Shark Tank" star Daymond John was just named Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship -- a big fancy title that basically means ... he gets to score some face time with the prez.

Obama's a Natural

The Next Denzel

EXCLUSIVE

Keegan-Michael Key paid homage to Prez Obama Sunday night, saying he's got the comedic timing of a pro ... and he also spilled the beans on who wrote their skit.

The Comedy Central star was leaving the Improv in Hollywood when our photog asked about their shtick and he said it was concocted right at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

It came off so well, you would have thought Obama and Key rehearsed for hours ... not so.

Key made it clear ... Obama has a future after politics.

Armed & Ab-ulous Thanks to Trainer

Prez Obama

6-Pack Smuggling

In the Oval Office ... Still!

5/5/2015 3:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

When President Barack Obama leaves the White House, he's taking something with him -- his six-pack(ish) abs ... according to his trainer who says El Jefe is still a workout freak.

Our photog in D.C. spotted Cornell McClellan, a member of the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition -- and, more importantly, the man who keeps B.O. and the whole First Family in shape.

McClellan said it's not as tough as you'd think to bark out commands to the leader of the free world -- since, as he puts it ... Obama is "raging against death." Kinda strange for a guy who's only 53, but whatever.

As for the six-pack starter kit the Prez had right before winning office? It seemed to be fading in 2012, but McClellan explains why Obama's no lame duck in the gym.

Bristol Palin

Baltimore Riots

Are Messing With My House Sale!

5/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bristol Palin HouseBristol Palin's house sale would be a done deal if not for the riots in Baltimore. Wait, what?

So get this ... Palin put her 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3,200 sq ft. Alaskan home on the market last month and it sold in three days at the asking price of $549,000. Needless to say, Bristol was ecstatic. 

Fast forward to this week when the final sale docs were supposed to be delivered ... and they've been delayed. What caused the delay? Yup, the riots.

Bristol's realtor says an alert from FedEx concerning the delivery came, saying, "As a result of local restrictions in the Baltimore, Maryland metro area, unavoidable service delays are anticipated."

Slight delay ... of no consequence. Relatively speaking.

Jeb Bush

Recruiting Pitbull

... Key to the White House

4/30/2015 9:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The 2016 presidential election could come down to one man ... PITBULL ... and Jeb Bush knows it. 

There have been reports that both Democrats and Republicans have been ferociously trying to court the rapper to their party -- strongly believing Mr. 305 could have GREAT political influence in the election.

And why? He's got a huge Latino following ... especially in Florida ... which is one of the most important swing states for presidential elections. 

Which brings us to former Gov. Bush -- who was out in D.C. Thursday morning. We asked a fairly easy question -- if you could bring ANYONE to a baseball game, who would it be?

First he picked Teddy Roosevelt ... but then, he adds another name to the list -- Mr. Worldwide!!
