White House Repeat Fence Jumper Served in the Army, Loves Trump

3/29/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0328-marci-anderson-wahl-tmz-02Marci Wahl -- the woman who's been twice arrested for trying to jump a White House fence -- served in the U.S. Army for more than 8 years ... and she's a big supporter of President Trump.

Army Reserve reps tell TMZ ... Marci served from March 2001 to December 2009 as an electronic missile system repair specialist and had a 2-year stint in Germany. She won a Good Conduct Medal and an Army Achievement Medal.

We've spoken with 3 members of the U.S. Army who say she served in Iraq in Operation Iraqi Freedom II, but the Army tells us they have no record of her serving in Iraq.

Friends who served with Marci tell us she was very well-liked and a good soldier ... which is why many were shocked by the news of her fence jumping. One source said she wasn't very political when he knew her, and another said "something inside her must have snapped."

As we reported, Marci told Secret Service agents she really wants to speak with Donald Trump and she'll try again to get inside The White House. According to some of her online vids, she thinks folks should love the president and that Trump's being too nice.

She's also REALLY into astrology.

Donald Trump Yeah, I Can't Be Sued Right Now I Got a Country to Run!

Breaking News

0328-donald-trump-summer-zervos-TMZ-GETTY-01Donald Trump doesn't think he'll have time to deal with civil lawsuits while he's running the USA ... and he's asking a judge to agree with him. 

Trump's lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, filed court docs this week in New York, arguing Summer Zervos' defamation lawsuit against President Trump should be tossed, for now, since it'd distract him from his public duties ... and hurt the country as a result.

Kasowitz claims the U.S. constitution's supremacy clause backs up his rationale that a sitting president can't be sued in state court while in office. He also says the Supreme Court left this specific issue undecided when they ruled against Bill Clinton in the '90s.

Although SCOTUS firmly decided a president was not immune from private litigation while in office, Kasowitz claims it did not address dismissing a case based on the likelihood to distract the president before it begins.

As we reported ... Zervos is suing Trump for allegedly ruining her good name by calling her a liar for her sexual assault claims. Her lawyer, Gloria Allred, said Tuesday "no man is above the law and that includes the president of United States."

Kasowitz says he'll soon be filing a motion to dismiss the suit.

0328-secret-service-suspicious-package-01

update_graphic_red_bar9:32 AM PT -- The area has reportedly been deemed "all clear."update_grey_gray_barNo rest for Secret Service agents, who had to spring into action again outside the White House ... this time for a suspicious package on the North Lawn.

Agents cleared the entire lawn and several streets around it. The Secret Service says it's nabbed a suspect.

Our law enforcement sources say the suspect said something that led agents to call out the bomb squad. It's unclear if the threat was directed at President Trump, the White House or any specific landmark or politician.

We're told the bomb squad has deemed the package safe, but the suspect is still in custody.

In recent weeks, Secret Service has dealt with multiple trespassing incidents ... including 2 from White House fence jumper Marci Anderson Wahl.

White House Repeat Fence Jumper Marci Wahl Inspired by Other Jumpers Vows to Do it Again

3/27/2017 1:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327_white-house_fence_gettyThe woman who was twice arrested for attempting to jump a White House fence says she was inspired by the man who not only made it on the grounds for 17 minutes but even jiggled a doorknob.

Marci Wahl has just been charged with the crime of entering or remaining in a restricted building. True enough ... she never made it past the fence and in the first case her shoelaces became entangled on the spires and she dangled helplessly.

According to federal documents, obtained by TMZ, she said during an interview with Secret Service agents she was motivated by "the recent success" of other fence jumpers.

As for why she jumped the fence a second time after being taken into custody, she said she "lost track of where I was and was walking to the courthouse for a urinalysis appointment."

She told agents she was determined to speak with President Trump.

She went on to say she would stay in Washington D.C. until she felt bored, adding, "I feel like I am supposed to be here right now." She also said she plans on jumping the fence again, and when agents told her it was not the proper way of getting a meeting, she said she would contact her state senator.

Paul Walker Surfer Bros Beg City Council for 12 Foot Statue ... 'A Beacon of Headlights'

3/27/2017 11:51 AM PDT

Paul Walker could be standing tall in San Clemente thanks to some surfer bros who begged the City Council for a statue of their hero "in the midst of gnarly times."

Self-proclaimed freelance journalist Chad Kroeger made the pitch at last Tuesday's meeting, and his rationale for the 12 foot Paul statue is comedy gold ... and also, kinda touching. Chad's buddy gets up there too for some fond words on "unifying figure" Paul.

Dude, we can't even describe it ... you just have to watch this.

Tomi Lahren Negotiating Exit From Blaze

3/27/2017 11:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-tomi-lahren-the-blaze-TMZ-01Tomi Lahren and TheBlaze are finished with each other, and they're now deep in negotiations to settle up.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, after Glenn Beck suspended Tomi over her comment on "The View" -- that she was pro-choice -- Tomi went to honchos at TheBlaze and said she wanted out.

There's clearly bad blood. Sources over at TheBlaze say Tomi's getting trashed ... "She's too crazy for us." On her side there's talk about what's behind this -- jealousy and that she's clearly the breakout star.

We're told she has 6 months left on her contract and TheBlaze was willing to pay her out, but that would mean Tomi couldn't work until October. We're told both sides are negotiating her exit and she will get less than 6 months of remaining salary but she'll be able to take another job.

We're told the settlement will be struck sometime this week.

As for where Tomi will go ... probably somewhere -- she has almost 4 1/2 million Facebook followers.

White House Shoelace Fence Jumper Strikes Again ... Only Now At Treasury Building

3/26/2017 2:44 PM PDT
Breaking News

0326-white-house-GETTY-01The woman who dangled from her shoelaces last week trying to jump the White House fence has struck again ... this time gunning for a building about a football field away.

Marci Anderson Wahl was arrested again early Sunday morning after successfully scaling the White House fence near the Treasury Building adjacent to 15th Street, just East of the White House. The building is on the same grounds, enclosed by the same fence. 

0326-us-treasurey-building-sub-asset-01Cops picked up Wahl around 2:15 AM, and she was charged with unlawful entry and contempt of court. She reportedly had a backpack on her with a sleeping bag and other miscellaneous items. No weapons or hazardous materials were found.

You'll recall ... Wahl was arrested and charged this past Tuesday for trying to jump the White House fence, but got caught by her shoelaces and had to be helped down by Secret Service agents.

After being issued a stay away order, she was arrested this past Friday as well after walking near the White House. Hopefully the third time's a charm for her.

EXCLUSIVE

D.L. Hughley thinks Donald Trump failed to repeal Obamacare because the country got wise to the fact that the current plan protects more than just poor black people.

Hughley was at LAX Friday and his message is clear ... he thinks Trump supporters were fine with taking health care away from African Americans, but then realized it affected them, too.

Trump Tower Swamped with Nonstop Bomb Threats ... Driving NYPD NUTS!!!

3/25/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0324-trump-tower-security-bomb-threat-fun-art-02Trump Tower's been inundated with bomb threats since Donald Trump became President ... and it's become a giant pain for the NYPD and Secret Service.

Law enforcement sources tell us NYPD's been getting an average of 3 bomb threats a week since Trump got sworn in ... and many if not most of them are coming from the same guy.

The NYPD, Secret Service and building security sweep the building each time ... complete with bomb-sniffing dogs. If a dog zeros in on a person or a bag, law enforcement checks it out.

So far, nothing has turned up, and it takes a lot of time and resources. 

Law enforcement will only evacuate the building if the threat is deemed credible, but there have been no evacuations yet because the threats appeared hollow from the get-go. 

We've reached out to NYPD and the Secret Service, so far no word back.

George Lopez doubled down on a disparaging comment he made about Ivanka Trump ... that "she's ready" to get pimped out. 

George was at LAX Friday when he got into it with our photog, Charlie, who asked the comedian if he had any regrets over his 2-word comment. You'll recall, George posted an Instagram video showing 2 dogs mating.

In the comment section, someone wrote, "Yo @georgelopez when we gonna pimp Ivanka because backpage is calling her name right now." George replied, "she's ready!"

George isn't backtracking an inch.
