Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Thanks for the Debate Dough! Random Student Cashes In

10/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton helped a savvy college student rake in more than a grand on the heels of their heated final debate in Las Vegas.

Alexander Lin, a biology major at UNLV, knew having the debate on campus would mean prime time exposure -- so he whipped up a sign asking people to donate to his GoFundMe account ... and grabbed a spot behind Anderson Cooper.

Alex appeared through most of CNN's post-debate coverage, and although he's no harder up for cash than the average college student -- he was instantly flooded with donations. Check out the video to find out how much he hauled in as of Thursday afternoon.

He's got big plans for the cash -- including a charitable donation, and his personal charity.

Well played, sir. Well played.


Donald Trump Accuser I Never Plotted with Hillary ... I'm Republican!!!

10/20/2016 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-donald-trump-temple-taggart-mcdowell-tmz-nbc-01One of Donald Trump's accusers has news for him -- she'd never team up with Hillary Clinton, and has ZERO interest in Hillary being prez ... because she plays for the wrong team.

Temple McDowell -- who repped Utah in the '97 Miss USA pageant -- claims Trump planted unwanted kisses on her lips during a rehearsal, and during a business meeting. She tells TMZ she's outraged at what Trump said during the debate -- accusing Clinton of coercing women to go public with fake stories.

Temple blew up his theory, saying she's always voted Republican, and has NO plans to vote Clinton. She added ... she's willing to hand over phone records to prove she had no contact with Hillary or her campaign.

To be clear, she's also not voting for Trump. Temple says she's backing Utah independent candidate Evan McMullin for President. So, yeah ... she's pissed.

Fun Fact: McMullin is currently leading the Presidential polls in Utah.

Donald Trump Mexican Menus Now Serving 'Bad Hombre' Specials

10/20/2016 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mexican restaurants across America are cashing in "bigly" on Donald Trump's "bad hombres" comment from the third and final presidential debate.

We spoke to Mexican restaurants in 3 different states -- Tennessee, Maine and Pennsylvania, who clapped back at Trump by adding "bad hombre" specials to the menu.

The El Corazon taco truck in Portland, Maine says they sold out of their "Bad Hombre Burrito" 2 hours after putting it on the menu Thursday morning. The Grubhouse in Philly says it added the "Bad Hombre Breakfast Sandwich" which they say is tremendous since it's stocked with chorizo, eggs, pepper jack and jalapeño ketchup.

To wash it all down ... Rosepepper Cantina, an award-winning stomp in Nashville, is serving up the "Bad Hombre" cocktail which features "very, very strong, believe me, Mezcal" and "The Nasty Woman" with potent, but well-aged tequila. 

Mexican food ... making America great again. 

New Donald Trump Accuser He 'Touched My Breast' at U.S. Open

10/20/2016 9:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump allegedly ogled and then groped a woman at the U.S. Open in 1998, and she came forward today ... with Gloria Allred by her side. 

Karena Virginia held a news conference Thursday in NYC to recount the story of her alleged encounter with the GOP Presidential candidate. She says she flinched after he touched her breast, and he replied ... "Don't you know who I am?"

The woman -- now a yoga instructor and mother of 2 -- was 27 at the time. She says she's not planning to sue at this moment, but wanted to add her voice to the other accusers.

Presidential Debate Vegas Sex Industry Takes a Pounding

10/20/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-escorts-during-debate-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-COMPOSITE-02Vegas escorts are moaning alright, but for the wrong reason ... they say the 3rd presidential debate has sucked the sexual drive out of Sin City.

Multiple escort agency owners tell us business has been alarmingly slow over the last 2 days.

The owners and escorts say ... the influx of people for the Trump/Clinton showdown is not the usual crowd coming to Vegas for a good time.

As for why business is down ... the owners have several theories. One ... that everyone's depressed about the way the election has gone, and the crowd isn't up for a fun time.

Another owner had this theory ... the election has been filled with "gotcha" moments, and people are afraid of getting busted.

There is a beneficiary in all this misery. Dennis Hof, the guy who runs the Bunny Ranch 45 minutes outside of Vegas, says his business is booming. The Ranch -- a legal brothel where Lamar Odom ODd and almost died a year ago -- is booked to capacity, and he's even running extra limos.

'Celeb Apprentice' Richard Hatch Trump 'Slides Up' On Women ... And Melania Knows It

10/20/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Richard Hatch says he witnessed Donald Trump's lewd conduct with women repeatedly, and anyone claiming differently -- including his family -- is full of it.

Hatch, who famously won the first "Survivor" crown before working closely with Donald on 'Apprentice' ... says the boss made a habit of getting close to women as soon as they walked in the room. He adds ... Trump never took the hint either when they'd try to shake him.

Richard says he didn't witness the incident recently reported about Gary Busey allegedly groping a female staffer while Trump laughed. But he says he wouldn't be surprised if Donald and producers looked the other way, since they loved having his "crazy" on the show.

He also says Melania claiming others are "egging on" Trump's behavior ... is pure fantasy.

Mario Andretti I Dined with Obama ... But I'm Voting for Trump!

10/19/2016 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Racing legend Mario Andretti says he's still a full pedal to the metal Donald Trump supporter -- even though he had dinner with President Obama at the White House Tuesday night.

Andretti appeared on "TMZ Live" and spilled his guts about the State Dinner to honor Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi ... a dinner that included huge stars like Jerry Seinfeld and Chance the Rapper.

So, we had to ask if the Obama event swayed his vote one way or the other -- and he made it very clear he's Team Trump all the way.

He did appear on "Celebrity Apprentice" after all ...

Exclusive Video

Donald Trump got a taste of his proposed US-Mexico border wall Wednesday morning when food trucks lined up outside his Las Vegas hotel ... but it wasn't just tacos being served.

The trucks built a wall outside Trump International Hotel just off the strip and offered free grub to hundreds of protesters. 

There was quite a selection, including several different Asian fusion trucks and even a showing from the French via the French Food Therapy truck. 

The Culinary Union Local 226, an LV food union, organized and got permits. For those that weren't hungry, there was another mini wall to sign.

For the most part, it looked peaceful ... Jesse Jackson even made an appearance and let us know his protest grub of choice.

Give it a listen ... Em's sarcastic tongue is as sharp as ever.

Michelle Obama $12k Versace for Final State Dinner

10/19/2016 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019_michelle_obama_versace_gown_launchMichelle Obama's going out with a VERY expensive bang.

The First Lady's body was straight fire -- with all due respect -- in a form-fitting custom-made rose gold Versace gown during President Obama's final State Dinner Tuesday night.

Michelle and Barack were hosting the Italian Prime Minister and his wife -- so, maybe she went Versace just to make them feel at home. But more likely ... she just loved the couture. 

The evening was topped off with a duet from Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton.

1019-hillary-clinton-bus-sewage-MIKE-ROBINS-01Hillary Clinton's got your WikiLeak right here ... in Georgia, where her tour bus dumped raw sewage onto the roadway.

It went down Tuesday in Lawrenceville at around 9:30 AM when someone inside the RV got out and opened the sewage drain, which drained onto the roadway and into the storm drain.

The deposit included drying toilet paper and, according to the police report, "a foul smell."

Hillary wasn't on the bus -- she was preparing for the debate Tuesday. 

The Hazmat units responded and cleaned it up. 

The cops just got the name of the bus company and plan on paying a visit today.
