Breaking News

0829-colin-kaepernick-donald-trump-TMZ-01Donald Trump is channeling his inner-Richard Nixon when it comes to Colin Kaepernick -- when it comes to America, LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT! 

Trump called in KIRO in Seattle and was asked how he felt about the 49ers QB's National Anthem protest -- and in classic Trump fashion, he didn't hold back. 

"I think it’s personally not a good thing," Trump said ... "I think it’s a terrible thing."

"Maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try. It won’t happen."

Ice Cube Team Trump Pulled a Fast One ... But I'm NOT Suing

8/29/2016 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ice Cube is pissed off about the video clip making it seem like he's backing Donald Trump for President, but what's more shocking is ... he's letting the Donald off the hook. 

Check out this video of Cube at LAX -- he's definitely not happy his old Bloomberg Politics interview resurfaced Saturday on a pro-Trump Twitter account. He shoots down the out-of-context clip as a lame attempt to jack his endorsement.

Cube made it 100% clear with a tweet, but he also told our photog his fans wouldn't be fooled ... for one HUGE and obvious reason.

0829-tony-stewart-colin-kaepernick-GETTY-01NASCAR legend Tony Stewart just fired a huge shot at Colin Kaepernick -- calling him a "dumbass" and an "idiot" over his National Anthem protest. 

"I'm sorry but @Kaepernick7 needs to learn the fact about police before running his dumbass mouth," Stewart said on Twitter.

"He has no clue what they go thru! #idiot."

Stewart is essentially echoing the sentiments of the San Francisco Police Officers Association -- which claimed the QB showed an "incredible lack of knowledge." 

So far, Kaepernick has yet to respond to Stewart or the SFPOA. 

update_graphic_red_bar3:04 PM PT -- Dolphins running back Arian Foster saw Tony's tweet and has responded -- saying, "How about attempting to educate him via your views instead of fueling hatred."

He added, "You can get ahold of him if you want."

8/29/2016 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stand-up comedian Jim Jefferies can't understand why his home country is so backwards when it comes to gay marriage, and yet so "super gay" ... as he puts it.

We got Jim at LAX, and asked what Australia could learn from the U.S., and he went off on a rant about its failure to change the law on same sex marriages.

Jim thinks they can fix it with one simple move though ... and, of course, it's hilarious.

0829-anthony-weiner-Huma-Abedin-TMZ-GETTY-01It's 3 strikes and you're out for Anthony Weiner ... his wife, Huma Abedin, says she's ending their marriage on the heels of his latest sexting scandal.

Hillary Clinton's right-hand woman says, "After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband."

Her announcement came hours after the NY Post story about Weiner sending new crotch shots to a woman. Weiner was in his underwear, but one of the shots included their young son.

Weiner resigned from Congress after his first sexting scandal in 2011. His run for NYC Mayor was also derailed in 2013 when he was sexting Sydney Leathers ... using his now infamous alias, "Carlos Danger."

The timing couldn't be worse for Abedin -- who is on the campaign trail with Clinton.

0816-John-McLaughlin-facebookLegendary political commentator Dr. John McLaughlin -- whose long-running show inspired famous 'SNL' spoofs -- has died ... just days after missing his program for the first time ever.

"The McLaughlin Group" -- a round table political discussion -- has been on the air for more than 34 years, and John hosted every weekly episode. During the airing this past weekend ... the show began with a slate explaining McLaughlin was "under the weather" and would not appear on the panel. His voice was heard though saying the familiar ... "Issue one."

McLaughlin was an ordained priest with a PhD in philosophy, who had also been a speech writer for Richard Nixon ... before his TV show launched in 1982.

The show released a statement announcing his passing, but did not specify what caused it.

Dana Carvey famously played the irascible host in a recurring "Saturday Night Live" skit.

Breaking News

0812-el-shehaby-rio-olympics-egyptian-hand-shake-AP-01An Egyptian judo fighter refused to shake the hand of his Israeli opponent after losing a 100kg match Friday at the Olympics in Rio.

The Egyptian is Islam El Shehaby -- who was defeated with about 90 seconds left in the match when his opponent Or Sasson completed a dominating 2nd takedown. 

After the match, Sasson approached El Shehaby to shake his hand -- customary in Judo matches -- but El Shehaby refused. 

People in the crowd reportedly booed. 

It's unclear why El Shehaby refused the handshake -- he could have been pissed from losing -- but there are reports that it was more politically motivated. 

Some powerful Egyptians had called for El Shehaby to withdraw from the fight in the first place to avoid having to compete with an Israeli opponent.
