President Trump Blasts Oprah's '60 Minutes' Report ... Hopes She Runs for Prez

2/19/2018 6:32 AM PST
Breaking News

President Trump is ripping Oprah the journalist -- for her report on his first year in office -- but says he's looking forward to defeating Oprah the candidate.

Trump, apparently, changed the channel on his TV Sunday night just long enough to catch Oprah on "60 Minutes" doing a round table discussion with Michigan voters -- pro and anti-Trump. He wasn't impressed, and dismissed Oprah, who he used to know very well, as "insecure" ... and claimed her "questions were biased and slanted."

Trump added he hopes "Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated." Guessing he hasn't heard Oprah declare repeatedly that she's NOT running for Prez.

As for Oprah's report ... Trump's supporters definitely had their say. Maybe he didn't watch long enough. 

Happy President's Day!

Tomi Lahren Yes, Jesus & Prayer Will Stop Mass Shootings

2/19/2018 8:04 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tomi Lahren doubled down on her stance the Florida school shooting wasn't about guns ... it's about a lunatic who wouldn't have slaughtered 17 people if he had more religion in his life.

We got the FOX News contributor at LAX Sunday and asked her about Trump tweeting that the FBI could have thwarted Nikolas Cruz if it wasn't so focused on him and Russia. Tomi dodged that controversy, and stuck to her own social media crisis.

Tomi's getting a ton of backlash online for calling for Christians to pray more in the wake of the shooting, instead of talking about gun control. 

We'll say this ... she's sticking to her story. Backlash be damned. 

Gold Medalist Eric Radford Trudeau and Canada Embraces Openly Gay Athletes

2/19/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Trudeau makes gay athletes feel lucky as hell while President Trump and his lackeys make them feel like second-class citizens ... that's the sad truth according to the first openly gay athlete to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics.

Canada's Eric Radford says he's gotten a hero's welcome after he and figure skating partner Meagan Duhamel won gold this week in PyeongChang.

It's a stark contrast to the drama U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon's dealing with after snubbing Veep Mike Pence, who invited Rippon to meet with him after his bronze win. Rippon declined ... citing Pence's staunch opposition for gay rights (he once referred to gay marriage as "societal collapse"). 

Check it out ... Radford extends his own invite to Rippon. Guessing he'll definitely accept!

Survivors of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week are crying out for something to be done about it ... and thousands have gathered in support.

Emma Gonzalez, a senior at the Parkland, FL school, gave a passionate speech at the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale Saturday ... calling out for gun control in the wake of the massacre by Nikolas Cruz that left 17 people dead.

Emma blasted the treatment of her fellow students following the shooting, statements by President Trump and other politicians, and the NRA ... before leading chants of "We call BS!" Check out her full speech below.

Meanwhile in Miami -- less than 50 miles away from the site of the school shooting -- one of the region's largest gun shows is also going down. More than 140 vendors were reportedly at the Miami Gun Show Saturday morning, selling a variety of weapons ... including AR-15s.

As we reported ... Cruz used an AR-15 bought from a local gun shop to carry out his attack.

Brandi to Omarosa So, You Ever Have Sex with Trump?!!?

2/17/2018 7:17 AM PST

Holy crap, this one's juicy ...

Brandi Glanville asked Omarosa straight out ... did she ever sleep with Donald Trump!

Omarosa answers, but that's by no means the end of it. She says someone in The White House is sleeping around with everybody. Just a note ... the contestants need to get a lot better asking follow-up questions.

But wait, there's more. Brandi claims some of the women on "The Apprentice" got down with the boss. As for whether Omarosa did, well, she says she didn't have to. Her reason makes her so unlikable ... and so watchable. 

Stormy Daniels Brings Her Dirty Laundry ... To Strip Club!!!

2/17/2018 7:48 AM PST

Porn star Stormy Daniels has been reveling in all the dirty laundry involving her and Donald Trump, so it makes sense she brought a laundry basket to the strip club Friday night for a meet-and-greet.

Stormy showed up at Thee Dollhouse in Tampa, Florida to pose, sign autographs and sell merch ... after performing of course.

She signed copies of "In Touch" mag, which had her face plastered on the cover along with Donald Trump, with whom she allegedly had a tryst back in the day. 

The gig is the first of 4 appearances at the club and is part of her "Make America Horny Again" tour. She's previously appeared in South Carolina, Las Vegas and may be coming to a city near you.

Sen. Marco Rubio Trolled Over Gun Control ... 'Three Billboards'-Style

2/16/2018 2:56 PM PST
Breaking News

Sen. Marco Rubio is getting called out over gun control -- in the wake of the Florida shooting -- in a way that would make Frances McDormand extremely proud.

Three billboards are parked near the senator's office in Doral, FL ... each clearly referencing Wednesday's school shooting in Parkland ... and asking Marco Rubio why there's been no gun control reform.

The billboards replicate the Oscar-nominated film, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" ... where Frances' character puts the heat on a sheriff to solve her daughter's murder.  

The real-life trolling of Rubio was organized by the activist group Avaaz, whose deputy director Emma Ruby-Sachs says, "Florida has notoriously lax gun laws, and Rubio, who is supported by the NRA, has never attempted to reform them."

No response from the senator yet.

Nikolas Cruz Target Practice ... Wearing 'Make America Great Again' Hat

2/16/2018 6:32 AM PST

Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz used his backyard for target practice just months before he killed 17 students this week.

This video, shot in October by a neighbor, shows Cruz in his backyard shooting what appears to be a BB gun, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.

The neighbor says cops were called to Cruz's home a number of times for "strange and violent behavior." There's a report out that cops were called 39 times. 

Kids in the neighborhood are saying Cruz was unhinged, was violent toward animals and would fly off the handle for no apparent reason.

Elizabeth Warren 'NRA Owns Congress'

2/16/2018 7:13 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sen. Elizabeth Warren says the Florida mass shooting is sadly a vicious cycle set on repeat ... and her colleagues won't do anything about it because they're a bunch of muppets for the NRA.

We got Senator Warren Thursday night at LAX and asked her to offer us a ray of hope following Wednesday's tragedy in Parkland, Fla. ... where Nikolas Cruz brutally killed 17 people at his old high school.

As you can see, Warren struggles to offer a pep talk because she sees no end in sight.

Sen. Cruz on FL Shooting Hypocrite Celebs Want Gun Control For Everyone, But Their Bodyguards

2/15/2018 4:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sen. Ted Cruz doesn't want to hear a peep from Hollywood about gun control -- in the wake of the Florida high school shooting -- 'cause he says they're operating under a double standard.

We got Cruz Thursday in D.C. and he says celebs weighing in on gun control is totally hypocritical -- considering the kind of firepower their security details use. The Senator added, the cry for new gun laws after tragedies like the Parkland shooting undermines the true intent of the 2nd Amendment ... in his eyes.

He held up the heroics of a citizen during the Sutherland Springs, TX mass shooting as an example of ordinary Americans needing to be armed.

Cruz got a few of the facts wrong, but he's making his point, loud and clear here.

President Trump Vows to Make Schools Safer ... NO Mention of Guns

2/15/2018 8:48 AM PST
Breaking News

President Trump addressed the mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and vowed to make America's schools safer by tackling mental health issues.

Conspicuously, he did NOT mention gun control issues during his speech Thursday morning. The President called the shooting an act of hatred and evil. He promised the nation's young people and parents he would meet with officials to make school safety a top priority.

Trump had tweeted early this morning, "So many signs that the Florida shooter [Nikolas Cruz] was mentally disturbed" -- and he stuck to that Thursday, saying he was committed to improving mental health programs.

Worth nothing ... almost exactly a year ago, Trump signed a bill revoking gun checks for people with mental illness.

Trump's refusal to discuss gun control or gun safety reforms was glaring. Shortly after his speech, former President Obama tweeted about the need for "common-sense gun safety laws." 

As we reported ... Cruz was taken to jail early this morning wearing a hospital gown. Cops say Cruz used an AR-15 assault rifle to carry out the murders.

Omarosa Bashing Trump to Make $$$ ... says Congressman

2/14/2018 12:27 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Omarosa spilling the beans on "Celebrity Big Brother" is not so much to clear her conscience or get back in favor with the African-American community ... it's her bottom line, says Congressman Cedric Richmond.

We got the Democratic Rep. at Reagan National Airport on Tuesday and wanted to get his take on Omarosa leaking the Trump administration's game plan ... particularly its aggressive deportation tactics.

Sure, Richmond says the former 'Apprentice'/White House staffer might be letting her conscience guide her post-firing, but more than that, she's dishing dirt cause she's looking out for Numero 1.

We also ask the Congressman if he's now more inclined to watch 'CBB' with Omarosa revealing deets, but as he put it ... he's too busy looking after children -- his 3-year-old and Prez Trump.

Donald Trump Attorney Michael Cohen I Personally Paid Stormy Daniels $130k

2/14/2018 6:03 AM PST

Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, says he paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130k out of his own pocket and was not reimbursed.

The disclosure comes weeks after reports surfaced that Trump hooked up with Daniels in 2006, a year after he married Melania ... something Trump's people deny. The payment was made in 2016, during the campaign.

Cohen says, "Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford [Stormy's real name], and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly."  

Cohen did not say if Trump was aware of the payment.

And Cohen says he told the Federal Election Commission the same thing after a complaint was lodged that campaign money was used as hush money.
