President Trump Claims Hillary Destroyed Evidence ... Smashed Phones with Hammer!

6/15/2017 1:48 PM PDT

Donald Trump wants Hillary Clinton to feel the same heat he is over Russia ... and claims she smashed phones and hid evidence which he thinks rises to the level of obstructing justice.

The Prez insinuated the Clintons have their own ties to Russia that should be investigated ... then followed up with a blistering tweet about 'Crooked H' destroying phones, emails and Bill Clinton influencing the former U.S. Attorney General.

No reply yet from Hillary, but she hasn't been afraid to go toe-to-toe with Trump in the past ... on Twitter.

Grant Cardone Motivational Guru Begs I Want Permission to Use N-Word

6/13/2017 12:33 PM PDT

A popular motivational speaker desperately wants the right to use the n-word freely, and he made a bizarre plea to do so while hosting his Internet show.

Grant Cardone -- a best-selling author with 1.1 million Facebook followers -- was in the middle of interviewing entrepreneur Patrick Bet-David a couple weeks ago. The conversation shifted to Miami's diversity when, out of nowhere, Grant straight-up said he wants a stamp of approval to use the n-word.

Important to note, Cardone wasn't following in Bill Maher's footsteps ... this aired before Maher's ill-fated slavery remark.

We've reached out to Cardone's camp, so far no word back.

President Trump Fires Back ... Comey Lied and Leaked!

6/9/2017 5:18 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump broke his silence on James Comey's testimony ... declaring victory over his former FBI Director, and dismissing him as a "leaker."

Fair to say, the Prez was NOT impressed with what he saw and heard during Comey's Senate Intel Committee hearing. Early Friday, Trump said, "Despite so many false statements and lies, total and complete vindication...and WOW, Comey is a leaker!"

POTUS' Twitter fingers were silent during Comey's highly anticipated testimony, making the event kind of a let down. Trump's now revealing his takeaway -- Comey had nothing on him when it comes to Russia ... and Comey admitted leaking info about their meetings.

Obviously, there was much more said -- such as Comey testifying he couldn't trust the President wouldn't lie -- something many took as a blow to 45's character.

Still, Trump's perspective on the event is clear: I win.


John McCain Blames Diamondbacks for Weird Comey Questioning

6/8/2017 12:15 PM PDT
Breaking News

John McCain says he has a perfectly good excuse for that bizarre line of questioning during the Comey hearing Thursday ... he watched too much baseball the night before.

Twitter has been exploding with people mocking the 80-year-old AZ senator for strangely bringing up the Hillary Clinton investigation while everyone else wanted answers on Russia and Trump

McCain accused Comey of applying a double standard by closing the Clinton investigation while leaving the Trump inquiry open. Comey's explanation was that the Clinton investigation ran its course while the Trump investigation had barely started when Trump fired him.

This seemed a rational explanation for everyone in the room, except for McCain who seemed baffled.

Now, McCain has issued a statement trying to explain (and also poking fun at himself) ... saying:

"I get the sense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people's heads. Maybe going forward I shouldn't stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games."

For the record, the D-Backs played the Padres Wednesday night ... and won 7-4.

Val Kilmer I'm Still Cool As Ice, Man

6/7/2017 8:30 AM PDT

Before Zoolander flashed blue steel, Val Kilmer was flashing real killer looks as Iceman in "Top Gun" ... and he's still got it. Just ask Val. 

Val was rocking a "Cool As Ice" tee while taking a selfie -- a well-timed shout-out to his "Top Gun" character ... since Tom Cruise just announced he's doing the sequel, "Top Gun: Maverick."

Iceman hasn't been shy about wanting to reprise his role. Back in May he posted another selfie saying, "I'm ready Tom- still got my top gun plaque! Still got the moves! Still got it!"

Gotta have a wingman, Tom! Just sayin' ...


Jay Mohr Drops N-Bombs In Bizarre Boosie Badazz Twitter Rant

6/6/2017 3:15 PM PDT

First Bill Maher, now another white comic is dropping the n-bomb -- this time, it's Jay Mohr who used the word twice in a Twitter rant about rapper Boosie Badazz

Mohr was reacting to an interview Boosie did describing how he witnessed fellow prison inmates engaging in anal sex. Boosie made several homophobic comments during the interview.

Jay tweeted about the interview -- pointing out Boosie's gratuitous use of the n-word.

"LIL Boosie says N**ga 19 times but twitter accusing him of Being homophobic," Jay wrote.

Mohr then weighed in on a separate Twitter conversation -- in which one commenter called another commenter "corny."

Jay wrote, "This n**ga just got called corny."

For the record, Jay has been using the n-word in his stand-up routine for years -- and has never really taken heat for it.

But now, with the backlash against Bill Maher -- and the fact he's dating Lakers owner Jeanie Buss -- is it the best idea to be using the n-word so cavalierly??

Jay's not backing down. 

David Ortiz Nixes Comeback Rumors 'It's Not that Easy'

EXCLUSIVE

Big Papi says he's NOT gonna unretire and hit for the Boston Red Sox this season -- despite a big endorsement from his legendary ex-teammate, Pedro Martinez

Pedro got everyone talking Monday when he tweeted out, "Big Papi is working out, and I know he is in baseball shape, and the @RedSox could use a bit of his bat."

So, when we saw David Ortiz at CC & Amber Sabathia's PitCCh At Foundation charity event in NYC, we had to ask if a comeback was on the table. 

Unfortunately, Ortiz shoots that down ... telling TMZ Sports he's too busy enjoying his retirement and watching quality television programming. 

Khloe Kardashian Former Friend Robbed Me Blind!!! ... Allegedly

6/5/2017 11:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian says she's the victim of theft and betrayal by her former friend whom Khloe considered part of her family.

Khloe took to Twitter over the weekend shedding some light on the incident and asking followers, "What would you do if you found out a friend was stealing from you?"

Khloe hasn't yet filed a lawsuit or police report, but, sources close to the situation tell us she's already talked to her lawyers, claiming the friend charged tens of thousands of dollars in designer clothes to Khloe's credit card ... clothes that didn't end up in her closet.

We're also told Khloe believes high-end designers sent her all sorts of stuff but the friend never turned it over to her.

In all, Khloe believes a small fortune was taken.

We're told Khloe's mulling over a lawsuit but hasn't decided yet. Her friends are urging her not to sue, because it will ruin the friend's career.

We reached out to the friend for comment ... so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Bella Thorne is making improvements in the guy department by picking guys like Charlie Day over Scott Disick ... this according to Charlie Day.

We got Charlie arriving at LAX over the weekend where he told us he'd actually heard about Bella tweeting she wants to marry him -- and while he seems genuinely flattered ... there's an issue: Charlie's wife.

The 'Always Sunny in Philadelphia' star makes it pretty clear the 19-year-old actress can forget about a menage a trois -- even if she keeps going out in see-through tops.  

Rob Kardashian's Fake Girlfriend Allegedly Planted Story For Fame

6/5/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian's so-called new girlfriend is playing Internet hoax victim ... but we're told she's the one fueling the rumors.

Rob had a new girl, according to some recent online posts -- 'Basketball Wives' and "Bad Girls Club" vet Mehgan James. But it didn't ring true almost from the get-go ... Rob began posting pics of baby mama Blac Chyna, tweeting that he'd never even met James, much less banged her.

Mehgan then put it out there she had no idea how the rumors started ... re-tweeting Rob's denial.

Now the truth ... Mehgan was the mastermind of the whole thing.

Our sources say Mehgan's "team" contacted a bunch of media outlets planting the story. We're told her goal was SOP ... spread her name, grow her following.

Mehgan's at 806k Instagram followers -- doubling in a week -- so sadly, mission accomplished. 

A little something something since it's Wednesday and all 😏!

'Covfefe' Merriam-Webster Ain't Playing Trump's Game

6/1/2017 8:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump might be America's midnight wordsmith, but Merriam-Webster isn't bowing to all the covfefe -- the President's made-up lingo will NOT be in their good book.

Merriam-Webster's editor-at-large, Peter Sololowski, tells TMZ ... Trump's now infamous word won't be making an appearance in their dictionary anytime soon, despite TONS of people trying to define it this week.

Sololowski believes covfefe was simply a typo, and says MW doesn't create entries for what it considers misspelled words. MW's website's been flooded with covfefe searches since Trump's late night tweet ... and Sololwski says they're serving up suggestions like coffee, coven, cover, covet and covey.

BTW ... White House sources tell us they maintain what Sean Spicer said Wednesday -- that covfefe was deliberate ... and its true meaning is known only to a select group.

Very select. Like ... one, we're guessing.

Donald Trump Kathy Griffin's Beheaded Photo Traumatized Son Barron

5/31/2017 5:52 AM PDT

Donald Trump just lashed out at Kathy Griffin for her photo shoot featuring a beheaded, bloody mannequin in the image of the President, saying she has messed up his 11-year-old son.

Trump tweeted, "Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick."

Kathy has apologized for the shoot she did with famed photog Tyler Shields, after receiving a torrent of criticism.

Kathy is feeling the fallout. Squatty Potty has suspended its ad campaign featuring the comedian, saying, "We were shocked and disappointed to learn about the image Ms. Griffin shared today. It was deeply inappropriate and runs contrary to the core values our company stands for."

As we reported, the Secret Service is investigating the circumstances surrounding the shoot ... which is protocol if there's even mock violence against the President of the United States.

7:10 AM PT -- Anderson Cooper has also weighed in, tweeting, "For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate."

6:20 AM PT -- Donald Trump Jr. says he's also concerned about Kathy Griffin and Tyler Shields' image and how it's going to affect his children.
