Sen. John McCain Diagnosed with Brain Cancer

7/19/2017 5:20 PM PDT
Breaking News

John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer.

Pathology was performed following McCain's surgery Friday to remove a blood clot, and tests showed the presence of a "primary brain tumor" known as glioblastoma.

The family is now considering treatment options with his Mayo Clinic team of doctors. 

The 80-year-old Senator was resting at home following the removal of the blood clot last week. His absence from Congress led Republicans to defer the vote on the repeal and replacement of Obamacare.

His office did not reveal a prognosis. 

Caitlyn Jenner's Ex-Wife Caitlyn Running 4 Senate Makes Me LOL!!!

7/19/2017 9:11 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner better reconsider making a run for the U.S. Senate ... at least according to her ex-wife, Linda Thompson.

We got Linda, who was married to Caitlyn for 5 years, outside their son Brandon's Tuesday night gig at L.A.'s Belasco Theater -- and asked her about the political buzz.

Caitlyn said this week she's been mulling over a Senate run, but it's clear Linda won't be voting for her if she does.

She'll happily give CJ a good hearty laugh though!

Rosie O'Donnell Plugs Pushing Trump Off a Cliff In Video Game

7/19/2017 7:19 AM PDT

Rosie O'Donnell's all for killing President Trump in a video game ... at the very least.

Rosie's been getting her kicks playing an online game called "Push Trump Off a Cliff Again" and she's promoting it on her social media. Not exactly shocking considering she's never hid her hatred for Trump, and vice versa.

On the other hand ... it's pretty bold for her to promote even virtual violence against POTUS in the wake of Kathy Griffin's bloody head debacle. And remember Rosie had to eat crow after a verbal attack on the President's son, Barron.

Conservatives are destroying her for plugging the game, although reaction from Rosie's fans seems to be ... play on!

Chris Christie Snags Foul Ball Destroyed By Announcers

7/19/2017 7:18 AM PDT

Chris Christie made a helluva catch, snagging a foul ball at Tuesday's NY Mets game ... and the reaction was pretty much what you'd expect.

BOOOOOOOOOOO!!

But fans weren't the only ones lighting up the NJ Governor -- Christie also got zinged by the Fox Sports TV announcers for his infamous day of fun in the sun.

“Nice to see him get from the beach here to the ballpark," the play-by-play man said. His broadcast partner loved it.

It's been a rough month for Christie ... his big beach day also got blasted during his audition to host Mike Francesa's sports talk show.

But it's not the first time C.C.'s showed off his baseball skills ... we've seen him lookin' like Aaron Judge at a charity softball game a few years back.

Kid Rock Pataki & Cain Weigh In On Rocker for Senate

7/19/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kid Rock's getting a big endorsement, and a big thumbs down, even before he officially runs for a Michigan Senate seat -- in other words ... welcome to politics, Kid!

We got former U.S. Senator and New York Governor George Pataki in NYC, and he thinks the rock star is exactly the kinda candidate the GOP needs now. Ditto for Caitlyn Jenner, who's made some noise about possibly entering politics.

Rock launched KidRockforSenate.com Monday and posted campaign signs all over social media.

However, another staunch Republican, Herman Cain, crapped all over Candidate Kid and Caitlyn. Interesting ... the guy who backs Donald Trump clearly doesn't think all celebs are fit for office.

'Big Brother' Star's Mom My Son's No Racist! He's Been the Victim of It

7/19/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Big Brother" fans got the wrong idea about Paul Abrahamian's "blackface" or "black mask" stunt ... at least according to his mom.

Paul's ma tells us the point of her son's plot -- which he hasn't actually pulled off yet -- is to poke fun at, and own up to the "snake" accusations his nemesis, Dominique, keeps hurling at him ... by dressing up as one.

Of course, she can't talk to Paul while he's in the house but insists he'd never race bait another 'BB' houseguest because he's Lebanese-Armenian, and has been called a terrorist and accused of being in the Taliban. So, she knows he wouldn't stoop to using racist tactics.

Mom wanted to speak up only because she's received death threats on social media like ... "Your house should burn down and everyone in it."

She says Paul's just putting together a funny, makeshift snake costume. Nothing more than that. Mom's honor. 

President Trump I Break for Fire Trucks!!!

7/17/2017 3:19 PM PDT

President Trump hopped aboard a shiny red American-made fire truck at the White House Monday, and posed an unintentionally hilarious question ... "Where's the fire?"

POTUS smilingly got behind the wheel -- much like a wide-eyed little kid -- outside the White House with VP Pence and Sean Spicer nearby. It was all part of an event to kick off the administration's "Made in America" week.

By the looks of it, the Prez loved playing fireman in his youth. As for his question?

Follow the smoke ... his critics might say.

Shepard Smith Asks Trump and Co. 'Why All the Lies?'

7/15/2017 7:42 AM PDT


FNC Anchor Shepard Smith is incredulous, blasting President Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Jr. Jared Kushner and the whole White House gang for repeatedly lying about their contacts with Russia during the 2016 election.

Smith couldn't hide his contempt as he talked to fellow FNC anchor Chris Wallace, noting the tide has turned and even Trump stalwarts now acknowledge the numerous lies ... all short of collusion but, as Smith says, why lie if there's nothing at the end of the road?

At one point Smith unleashes on Trump, literally leaving Wallace speechless.

Chechnya President On Gay Execution Claims 'We Don't Have These Kinds of People Here'

7/14/2017 10:38 AM PDT

The President of Chechnya says the people who are accusing his regime of torturing and killing gays are "devils" because he says it can't be true because "We don't have these kinds of people here."

President Ramzan Kadyrov sat for an interview with David Scott from 'Real Sports' and it's shocking. There are reports 27 people were recently murdered by the government ... killed because they were gay, something the government has denied because the party line is that there are no gays in the country.

Kadyrov says, "To purify our blood, if there are any here take them," and he goes on, "If there are any take them to Canada."

And there's more ... Kadyrov challenges America, saying "Even if our government were completely destroyed, our nuclear missiles would be automatically deployed. We will put the whole world on its knees and screw it from behind."

'Real Sports' did the interview because it is doing a piece on MMA in Chechnya.

Floyd Mayweather Barack Obama May Attend Fight

7/14/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather says he's got some huge surprises in store for the McGregor fight -- including a possible appearance by President Barack Obama.

"Barack Obama may be there. Donald Trump may be there. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a star-studded event," Mayweather told TMZ Sports

UFC president Dana White previously told us Trump reached out and "100%" had an interest in the fight -- but likely won't attend because he doesn't want to "ruin the event" with the massive security preparations it would take to ensure his safety.

We reached out to Obama's camp -- so far, no word back.

As for Floyd, he says so many people have hit him up for tickets, he's had to change his phone number.

President Trump Says Oui, Oui, Oui To French First Lady's Body

7/13/2017 1:14 PM PDT

President Trump got an eyeful of French President Emmanuel Macron's wife and, in the most awkward way possible ... made it clear he liked what he saw.

Trump, with Melania at his side, greeted Brigitte Macron Thursday in Paris -- and in video posted on Prez Macron's Facebook ... POTUS was overheard saying, "You're in such good shape. Beautiful."

The issue ... he was looking right at her at the time. Madame Macron seemed to squirm a bit as she moved closer to Melania during the exchange.

The French First Lady's age has been a hot topic over there -- she's 64, while her husband is 39 -- so, it's possible Trump was attempting to deliver a compliment.

No getting around it though ... this video is -- how do you say? Zee awkward.

Maxine Waters I Don't Know if Pence is Better than Trump

7/13/2017 10:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Congresswoman Maxine Waters wants to impeach Donald Trump, but she's not vouching for the proposition that the country would be in better hands with Mike Pence.

We got the Democratic rep from L.A. in D.C. Wednesday, and she hedged on Pence, saying there are a lot of unknowns. She still wants Trump out, but doesn't know if that would be a step forward or a step backward.

Waters is also skeptical about Pence, suggesting maybe he's knee-deep in the whole Russia thing.

Peyton Manning: People Told Me Not to Golf with Trump

Breaking News

Peyton Manning says he was pressured to REJECT President Donald Trump's invitation to golf with him last month ... but #18 didn't listen ... saying turning down the POTUS would be "un-American."

The NFL legend appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and said he happened to be in D.C. back in June when he got a call from the White House asking him to join Trump for golf.

"I gotta tell ya Jimmy, I had a lot of people telling me not to do it," Manning said.

"I think it would have been almost un-American to have said 'No.'"

Manning said Trump was a gracious host and they had fun golfing together.

When asked if Trump cheated -- as Samuel L. Jackson has previously alleged -- Peyton shot that down too and said he counted Donald's strokes.
