Hookers for Hillary

From Whore House

To the White House!!!

4/18/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Hillary Clinton just got an endorsement from a group that hundreds of thousands of men have endorsed ... hookers.

Hookers for Hillary is all fired up, and shouting her praises from Nevada's famed Bunny Ranch.  

You gotta hear Ava Adora's ringing endorsement. She's amazingly articulate and insightful. Short story, she knows why America is in danger of becoming a plutocracy, and you probably don't. 

On the other side of the spectrum, take a look at Air Force Amy. She, well, has big boobs.

Sen. Pat Roberts

'Frozen' and Humiliated

Disney Ringtone Interrupts Sen. Hrg.

breaking news

This is the ONLY way to make a Senate Finance Committee hearing interesting -- and even hysterical -- just have the "Frozen" soundtrack suddenly blare from the phone of 78-year-old Senator Pat Roberts.

Yeah, that just happened.

Roberts was in the middle of one of those normally boring and stiff Senate hearings when his phone started ringing ... and "Let It Go" echoed through the chamber.

Watch ... Roberts fumbled for his phone, but the damage was done.

We called the Kansas Senator's office ... and his communications director said the ringtone is for his grandkids. He's got 5 of 'em. She quickly pointed out he also has Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line" as a ringtone.

Okay, Senator. As you said ... just let it go.

Marco Rubio

He's Not REALLY About Hip-Hop

... Says Hip-Hop Legend

4/16/2015 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Liking hip-hop and LIVING hip-hop are 2 very different things according to rap legend Ali Shaheed Muhammad ... who's calling out Sen. Marco Rubio for saying he's about that life.

The republican presidential hopeful talks a lot about his love of EDM and hip-hop -- says Nicki Minaj is his current fave, and he's recited Tupac and Biggie lyrics to our camera guys multiple times.

But we got Muhammad -- a former member of A Tribe Called Quest -- in L.A. Wednesday, and he's not buying into Rubio's hip-hop claims just yet. Check out Ali's take ... he says there's at least one policy Rubio's gotta change if he wants real street cred.

It's a risk for Sen. Rubio -- if you keep trying to cozy up to hip-hop voters, hip-hop might call you on it. 

Manny Pacquiao

I'M TOO YOUNG TO BE PREZ

... Maybe Senator Tho

4/16/2015 6:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Hold off on the campaign ads ... Manny Pacquiao says he's TOO YOUNG to think about becoming the future president of the Philippines ... but says he's not counting out a run for the Senate. 

Earlier this week, Manny's promoter Bob Arum said he believes Pacquiao will run for the office in 2022 ... and says he has a bright career in politics -- but clearly, Pacman wants to rack up more experience before gunning for the highest seat in the land. 

"I'm not qualified," Manny said at his media day in Los Angeles yesterday ... "I don't have that in my mind. I'm young."

BONUS -- Manny also told us he's on a strict NO SEX plan before the fight ... wait'll you hear how many days Pac's going celibate. 

Sen. Marco Rubio

Wait for the Drop

Ya don't hear GOP and EDM mentioned in the same sentence too often, but Sen. Marco Rubio might change that if he wins his party's nomination for president.

The junior senator from Fla says he loves to drop the bass -- but not everyone thinks he's keeping it 100.tmz-on-tv-3

Sen. Marco Rubio

Put Me in the White House

I'll Bump EDM & Nicki Minaj

4/14/2015 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj is one step closer to twerking in the Rose Garden ... now that Sen. Marco Rubio -- perhaps her most powerful fan -- is officially in the presidential race.

The latest Republican candidate to throw his hat in the ring has a pretty good working relationship with our D.C. photog, Colin -- and this morning they bro'd down over the junior senator's love of Nicki, EDM, and his hot wife ... a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader.

Check out the clip ... Colin even opened a door for Rubio to take a shot at Hillary's musical tastes. He didn't exactly take the bait.

Even if you don't agree with his politics -- a live performance of "Anaconda" at an inaugural ball would be kinda epic, no?

Manny Pacquiao

Will Run for Prez of Philippines

... Says Bob Arum

4/14/2015 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Hail to the Pacman?!

Manny Pacquiao wants to be PRESIDENT Manny Pacquiao ... so says his promoter Bob Arum who tells TMZ Sports he expects the boxer to run for the top office in the Philippines in the very near future. 

"He's gonna be a president," Arum told us outside Craig's in West Hollywood last night.

"He's gonna run for Senate in the Philippines in 2016 ... and then in 2022 or maybe later, he'll run for President of the Philippines."

Manny is no stranger to politics ... he was elected to the Philippine House of Representatives in 2010 and reportedly filed a handful of bills. 

The presidential term in the Philippines in 6 years ... so, if he doesn't run in 2022 ... he'd have to wait until 2028, when Manny would be 49 years old. 

But before we see if he can win an election, there's a tiny boxing match he's gotta win first. 

Good luck ...

Hillary Clinton says it's the right time ... and Jamie Foxx agrees it's the right time -- the right time for a woman to make a run for the White House.

And the whole election could come down to one word -- TRUST! Would you trust a female prez, in general -- and more specifically, Hillary? We've got the super duper EARLY returns!tmz-on-tv-3

Magic Johnson

HILLARY CLINTON FOR PREZ!!!

4/13/2015 7:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0413-magic-hillary-getty-01Hillary Clinton's already got one MAJOR celebrity supporter -- Magic Johnson ... who says he's FIRED UP that HRC is gunning for the White House. 

Johnson is staunch Democrat -- who supported Hillary in her first run for the Presidency back in 2007 ... and now with Clinton announcing that she's running for President again, Magic's making it clear he's still got her back. 

"[Cookie] and I are thrilled that @HillaryClinton announced today that she will be running for President!" Johnson tweeted.

"I feel @HillaryClinton will be a great President for the American people and she will make sure that everyone has a voice!"

"@HillaryClinton will fight for the poor, middle class and embrace young people!"

Akon

Dear President ...

Enjoy This Ballin' Bulletproof Van

4/13/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0408-akon-and-van-TMZ-01Akon has the same crisis we all do -- what the hell do ya buy an African president who has everything?! The answer, according to Akon ... is a $350k tricked out bulletproof ride.

The guys over at The Auto Firm in South FL. tell us Akon ordered a 2014 Mercedes Sprinter from them a year ago ... and asked them to reinforce the whole thing in bulletproof armor. That's the kinda order that raises eyebrows -- but we're told Akon's not saying much.

He copped to it being a gift for an African president, but wouldn't say which one. Our best guess -- Akon's homeland of Senegal ... but again, he won't confirm. 

We're told the 8-seater whip was rebuilt with the armor, plus a ton of bells and whistles inside: DirecTV, surround sound, etc ... all iPad controlled.

Interestingly, the exterior is very plain ... probably so the mystery prez can ride low key. Always a good idea if you're worried about bullets.

Hail to the chief?

Hillary Clinton

I'M IN!!!

Hillary Clinton thinks the second time's a charm, because she's in the race to become the second President Clinton.

Hillary personally made the announcement in a campaign ad, which clearly is targeting the middle class and taking aim at people at the high end of the financial spectrum. She makes the announcement at 1:34 in the video.

Hillary's campaign chairman announced her candidacy minutes before the video was released.  Chairman John D. Podesta emailed campaign donors saying, "I wanted to make sure you heard it first from me – it’s official: Hillary’s running for President."

0412-hilary-clinton-tweet-president-01

This time it's going to be different.  She's softening her image to become more voter-friendly and her focus is in the middle, as in class.  She tweeted, "Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion."

President Obama stopped just short of endorsing her, saying she was a great Sect'y of State, good friend and worthy of becoming President.

So we gotta ask ... 

Kim and Kanye

Crowd Loses Control

Outside Genocide Memorial

4/11/2015 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kim and Kanye have turned Armenia upside down ... creating pandemonium among fans, photogs and soldiers.

The video is insane.  They were leaving the genocide memorial when everyone just went nuts.   It's weird ... the most moving symbol marking the 100th anniversary of the genocide looks more like a Hollywood event.

Listen to the crowd as Kim and Kanye get in their SUV.  The language differences are fascinating, especially the way everyone refers to them.

President Obama

Strikes Lightning Pose

... With Usain Bolt

breaking news

President Obama just met with the most powerful man in Jamaica ... Usain Bolt ... who made such an impression on POTUS, the guy struck Bolt's famous lightning pose. 

You gotta watch the clip, Obama is totally geekin' out over meeting the fastest man on the planet. 

In fact, he gushed about Bolt to the room ... saying, "Nobody's ever been faster than this man ... EVER ... of all the billions of people."

Obama is supposedly in Jamaica on political business ... but it looks like it's all a cover to get to Usain.
