Donald and Melania When in Rome Tap Some Ass!!!

5/23/2017 10:02 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump flew over 1,400 miles -- from Israel to Rome -- and he's STILL in the no holding hands zone.

The Prez and Melania touched down in Rome Tuesday, and waved hello from the steps of Air Force One. Melania gives Donald a hard pass on holding her hand. Then, from what we can tell, he showed some affection from behind.

Trump's there for his Wednesday visit with Pope Francis.

Here's a plan ... maybe play an early Beatles song on the next flight.

Michelle Obama It's Not a Cold Shoulder It's a Hot One!!!

5/22/2017 2:50 PM PDT

Michelle Obama bared enough for pretty much everyone in Tuscany to notice.

The former First Lady was out and about in a super revealing top -- if shoulders are your thing.  

Barack wore a button-down shirt casually with sleeves rolled up as he walked next to Michelle.

The Obamas are splitting their time chilling and writing memoirs ... for which they're getting paid a total of around $65 million.

Nice work if you can get it.

Melania Trump Puts Prez in No Hand-holding Zone

Breaking News

President Trump got slapped down moments after touching down in Israel ... from the First Lady.

Melania and the Prez were walking away from Air Force One Monday after landing in Tel Aviv ... when he reached for her hand, but Melania wasn't having it. 

Who knows why -- perhaps a turbulent flight from Saudi Arabia -- but she definitely was NOT down for any hand-holding.

Trump's "to do" list for this trip just got a little longer:
1. Peace in the Middle East
2. Flowers for Melania

Rudy Giuliani I Believe Trump Over Comey

5/22/2017 7:14 AM PDT

Rudy Giuliani has worked with both Donald Trump and James Comey ... and if push comes to shove over who's telling the truth, Rudy's squarely in Trump's corner.

The former NYC mayor arrived at LAX Sunday, and the photog grilled him hard ... grilled him about the alleged Comey memo, Lindsey Graham's statement the probe is now a criminal investigation, Trump's poll numbers ... the works.

Giuliani didn't flinch ... he's as solid a Trump supporter as they come.

Cher Lets Trump Off The Hook At Billboard Awards

5/21/2017 8:15 PM PDT

Cher took home the "Icon" award at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards -- and to the surprise of viewers and show execs -- she didn't mention President Trump.

TMZ broke the story, award show producers went into Sunday holding their breath for what the singer -- who's been extremely critical of Trump -- may say during her acceptance speech. Lucky for ABC ... Cher held back on any vulgarity or any Trump remarks at all. 

The 71-year-old took the stage to perform "Believe" and "If I Could Turn Back Time" before  accepting the award from Gwen Stefani. Her speech was short and simple ... thanking friends, family and those who helped her in the industry.

Chaz Bono was also there to see mom accept the award.

Justin Trudeau Prom PM ... Photobomb Master

5/21/2017 1:18 PM PDT

Canada's Prime Minister does 2 things exceptionally well that sometimes coincide ... jogging and photobombing.

Justin Trudeau went on a run Saturday along Stanley Park Seawall in Vancouver, where he zipped by a group of kids taking pics for their prom. Naturally, it made for an epic photobomb ... him in full stride and smiling. 

The high schoolers quickly noticed their leader, and since he's a nice guy ... he took an official shot with the youngsters.

Oh, Trudeau. 

Mike Pence Notre Dame Grads Storm Out in Protest

Breaking News

11:35 AM PT -- A Notre Dame school official tells TMZ the university was aware of the walk-out, and even helped them out a bit for minimal distractions. Students asked ND heads a few days before graduation which exit they should take to cause the least amount of attention. ND didn't fight the protest. We're also told about 99% of the class stayed and received Pence warmly, which they consider a success.Mike Pence learned the true meaning of the phrase "Fighting Irish" when a couple dozen grads removed themselves from the ceremony during the Veep's commencement speech.

Pence was asked by Notre Dame to deliver the speech Sunday at its graduation, but the moment he stepped up to the lectern ... at least 20 students got up headed toward the back.

It was a planned protest against the Trump administration ... point made.

It's kind of a big deal. ND is a Catholic school ... and Pence is famously Christian. Also, the university is in Indiana ... where he served as governor before being tapped as Trump's VP.

Pence carried on like nothing happened. He fired up the audience and even got some cheers.

Michelle Obama Belleza Rosa

5/21/2017 8:32 AM PDT

While Barack was hitting the links in Tuscany, Michelle Obama was hitting the sights about 67 miles away ... and looking good in pink doing it.

The former First Lady was strolling around in Montalcino, Italy this weekend -- and she appeared to be the talk of the small town. You can't blame the locals ... she kinda stood out with the pink and white. Plus ... it's Michelle Freakin' Obama. She'll always turn heads.

Michelle snagged a second for herself during a food break, but then it was right back into the international spotlight. Togliti di mezzo!

SNL Team Trump Sings 'Hallelujah' ... Hang in There, America!

5/21/2017 6:45 AM PDT

Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway and the rest of the White House team sang a song of hope to fire up the season finale of SNL ... just like Hillary Clinton did 6 months ago.

Alec Baldwin as Trump began playing the opening chords to "Hallelujah" during the cold open, and was soon joined by Conway, Mike Pence and a good chunk of his WH staff. Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer was noticeably absent.

Anyway, the sing-along might ring a bell -- Kate McKinnon did the song as Clinton the weekend after the presidential election ... telling America she wasn't giving up and they shouldn't either.  

Baldwin's Trump has a similar message, but a different (and hilarious) rationale. 

Barack Obama Fore Score!!!

5/21/2017 7:36 AM PDT

Barack Obama has made it clear ... he's worried about the state of our union, but it didn't get in the way of what looks like an awesome round of golf ... Italian style.

The former Prez hit the links at the Castiglion Del Bosco Resort during holiday in Tuscany.

The best part of the video ... he clearly relishes driving the golf cart.  Presidents aren't allowed to take the wheel ... it's a thing, and most of them miss driving themselves around.

Stephen Colbert Hey Donald, Don't Hurry Back

EXCLUSIVE

Stephen Colbert looked super relaxed Saturday in NYC, apparently relieved the Commander in Chief is otherwise occupied.

The talk show king clearly thinks Donald Trump shouldn't rush things along in the Middle East ... favoring an extended trip for the Prez.

Colbert was on his way in to Milk Studios for Vulture Fest, where he sat with Aziz Ansari, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kevin Bacon on a panel to discuss the TV biz.

The good news for Colbert ... wherever in the world Trump is, there's plenty of material.

Cher Billboard TV Execs Fear Trump Bashing During Awards Speech

5/21/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cher can't resist going after Donald Trump Meryl Streep-style, at least that's the worry of Billboard Award honchos who worry her acceptance speech could become super vulgar.

Sources tell TMZ ... they're dealing with what they believe is the inevitable -- Cher hates Donald Trump with a passion and will go on the attack Sunday night when she receives the Icon Award.

Here's the dilemma ... show execs don't want to cut Cher's mic, because it will look like censorship and possibly even a pro-Trump move. It could also piss off the anti-Trump audience.

The flip side ... if Cher unleashes her considerable vocabulary of forbidden words, ABC could be in hot water with the FCC.

Cher -- who is set to perform at her first award show in 15 years -- has been vocally against Trump, and has called him an obnoxious asshole and  a "f***ing" idiot. She also said, "He wants the adulation. He doesn't give a s**t about the work."

Ric Flair I Almost Ran For Governor ... Here's Why It Didn't Happen

5/21/2017 12:40 AM PDT

Governor Nature Boy?

According to Mr. Stylin' and Profilin' himself it almost happened, and now Ric Flair is telling TMZ Sports what he saw that made him change his mind about getting into politics ... FOREVER.

We talked to Ric, who told us in 2002 he gave very serious thought to making a run for the top spot in his home state of North Carolina as a Republican.

In fact, Naitch was so serious he reached out to another huge wrestler for a little insight into the political arena, and that's when he told us his dreams fell apart.

Doesn't mean he's not still active in politics, though. Flair says he's headed down to Knoxville to help Kane win his political race, and according to Ric ... they already have it in the bag.

Careful Ric, this stuff isn't pre-determined like you're used to.
