Stephen Colbert Dear Trump, Please Resign ... On Heels of Intel Leak

5/16/2017 7:59 AM PDT

Stephen Colbert flat-out called for President Trump's resignation ... the prez admittedly shared classified intel about ISIS with Russian diplomats.

Colbert obliterated Trump during his Monday night monologue after the Washington Post reported the prez had leaked the info. Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted he had "the absolute right" to do so.

The 'Late Show' host disagrees, strongly, but did find a silver lining ... "The good news: Trump found the leaker."

The Trump-Colbert feud -- the gift that keeps on giving.

James Woods Attacks Anderson Cooper With Crude Homophobic Remark

5/12/2017 10:36 AM PDT

James Woods went after Anderson Cooper with a brazenly homophobic tweet about Cooper's now infamous eye roll.

The actor posted a GIF of Anderson rolling his eyes during an interview with Kellyanne Conway a few days ago. He captioned it ... "As his butt plug dislodges during a newscast."

Woods makes no secret of it -- he's a staunch conservative and vocal supporter of President Trump. Clearly, he'd side with Conway over Cooper.

However ... this remark makes Colbert's "cock holster" comment about the prez seem tame.

Harry Potter Galloping Gargoyles! $40k Prequel Stolen!!!

5/12/2017 7:58 AM PDT
Breaking News

J.K. Rowling is warning 'Harry Potter' fans not to shell out any Galleons for a handwritten prequel that fell off the back of a broom ... as in, it was stolen.

The burglary happened last month in Birmingham, England at the home of someone who purchased the prequel at a 2008 charity auction for about $40k. It's a pretty cool piece of Potter history -- 800 words written on a postcard that lay out the story of Harry's pop, James Potter, and godfather, Sirius Black, as teenagers.

Cops still haven't made any arrests, but J.K. made a plea Friday to her 10 million followers. Just a matter of time till someone whips out the Probity Probe and finds it, we're guessing.

Donald Trump I'm with Rosie O'Donnell! When it Comes to Comey

5/11/2017 1:38 PM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump just jumped on Rosie O'Donnell's bandwagon -- and no, Hell is NOT freezing over ... as far as we know.

The prez apparently just realized Rosie tweeted 5 months ago that then-FBI Director James Comey should be fired. So, he tweeted Thursday, right at Rosie, "We finally agree on something Rosie."

Never mind that Rosie was calling for Comey's head because she blamed him for Hillary Clinton losing -- therefore putting Rosie's archenemy, Trump, in the White House.

Pretty sure Rosie won't be amused by Trump cozying up to her ... even sarcastically.

Bingo! Rosie just clarified her feelings on Comey, and called out Trump's "motives."

Wendy's just rewarded the teen who tried to score a year's worth of chicken nuggets -- even though he fell more than 14 million shy of the restaurant's Twitter demands.

We ain't hating, since Carter Wilkinson DID beat out Ellen DeGeneres for most retweets in history -- 3,433,823 with his #nuggsforcarter campaign. Ellen previously had the record for her Oscars selfie.

Getting that record was good enough for Wendy's which said Tuesday morning it's hooking up Carter with a year's supply of free nuggs. Dude got a certificate and vouchers to make it official.

Carter started his quest last month when he tweeted Wendy's asking how many retweets he needed to score the deal. Wendy's said 18 million.

He got a nice discount.

Nicki Minaj Pays Students' Loans, Tuition ... Who Asked On Twitter!

Exclusive Details

11:05 AM PT -- TMZ has confirmed 2 more people have received funds from Nicki, with one payment being for $800. Everyone else waiting for theirs ... sit tight. 

Nicki Minaj didn't just talk the talk (or tweet the tweet) -- TMZ has learned the rapper ALREADY started transferring thousands of dollars to college students who asked for her financial help on Twitter. 

The story is great ... a fan sent Nicki a meme Saturday night on Twitter jokingly asking if she would fork over a check to cover some college fees. 

Nicki replied, "Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious. Shld I set it up?"

As you can imagine, Nicki's timeline BLEW UP with requests from students -- and Nicki responded to more than a dozen offering to hook 'em up. 

Some people asked for help with student loans costing thousands of dollars ... others asked for less in tuition fees, books and other school supplies. Nicki was pretty thorough in her questioning why these folks really needed the money.

We checked in with some of the lucky beneficiaries who told us Nicki has already started to send the money. She asked for bank info through the DMs, and one person we spoke with said he already got $500 from Minaj.

By the way, Nicki says she might open up the vault again in a month or 2 ... so, get those report cards ready! 

Mike Huckabee Cinco de Mayo Plan Salsa and Speedy Gonzales

5/5/2017 7:31 AM PDT

Mike Huckabee has a Cinco de Mayo plan that has people hotter than a bottle of Tapatio.

The former Arkansas Guv said on Twitter he's celebrating the day by downing "an entire jar of hot salsa and watching old Speedy Gonzales cartoons and speak[ing] Spanish all day."

It took about a second for a torrent of hate to be directed Huckabee's way. One person wrote, "Your attempts at humor fail almost as miserably as your attempts to run for President."

Another person wrote, "Everywhere you go you should wish everyone a blessed day in Spanish by saying 'Soy Pendejo'" ... translation ... I'm an idiot.

This one's our fav. 

Kim Zolciak Unfollow If Ya Don't Like BJ Jokes About My Daughter

5/4/2017 11:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak was joking when she said her daughter, Brielle, would trade oral sex -- in fewer words -- to meet John Legend, but if you didn't know it was a joke ... Kim says you can kick rocks.

Kim hit up Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen, Wednesday on Twitter about his upcoming Atlanta show. Naturally, several of their followers thought her joke went too far, or maybe she'd been hacked.

But Kim tells us it was all in jest, and if you regularly follow her and Chrissy, you would know that's just their sense of humor. She added, "If you can't take a joke feel free to unfollow."

So we have to ask ...

The Chainsmokers Crash Chi-Town Senior Prom

4/30/2017 6:58 AM PDT

The Chainsmokers gave a class of seniors in Chicago a gigantic surprise when the boyz crashed their prom.

The DJ'ing duo played a surprise set Saturday night for Chi-Town's Huntley High School at  at the Hyatt Regency hotel, right after their concert across the street at the Allstate Arena.

Turns out the performance was pre-planned -- and free if you can believe it. Some kid from the school had contacted their management a couple weeks before to schedule the "impromptu" show.  Most of the kids at the prom had no idea they would show.

However it came to be ... they rocked the house. 

Barack Obama Finally Disses Trump ... Tweet Storms Ain't the Answer!

4/27/2017 3:17 PM PDT
Breaking News

Barack Obama took his first shot at his predecessor since inauguration day, lightly jabbing President Trump's speedy Twitter fingers ... and reportedly made a ton of money while doing it.

The diss came Thursday in NYC while the ex-prez was speaking to a crowd of A&E Network's advertisers. While presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin interviewed Obama, she asked how he handled frustrating moments in the White House.

Barack coolly replied, "For starters, by not having a Twitter account."

It was an expensive joke for A&E ... which according to the NY Post, paid Obama $400k for the speaking engagement. He's reportedly making that same amount to speak at an upcoming Health conference put on by Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald.

Michelle's no slouch herself ... she spoke Thursday at the AIA Conference on Architecture in Florida. Not to mention the huge advances both she and Barack got for their memoirs.

Make money money, make money money ...

'Silicon Valley' Star I'm Not Sarah, But Thanks for the Penis Pic, Dude!

4/25/2017 3:32 PM PDT

"Silicon Valley" star Amanda Crew got an eyeful of some guy's junk when she checked her text messages ... but her cool chick reaction made his day.

Amanda says the strange schlong came in the middle of a string of texts from a guy who thought he was texting someone named Sarah. He started, "Hey sexy girl. Can't wait to see you again."

Then came the pecker shot. Amanda let him down easily, and then posted the full exchange. She was nice enough to remove his phallus though.

The lesson: beware wrong numbers while sexting. Ya probably won't be as lucky as this guy.

Skrillex Yo, Elon Musk ... Thanks for Getting Me in Trouble with the Law!!!

4/20/2017 7:15 AM PDT

Skrillex was pulled over and handcuffed Wednesday night, and he blamed Elon Musk.

Law enforcement sources tell us the superstar DJ was driving on the Sunset Strip in his Tesla with music -- his own music -- blaring for all to hear.

Cops pulled him over to deal with the noise issue, but when they asked for ID, Skrillex came up empty-handed. That prompted the cops to order him out of the car and then slap on the cuffs.

Cops somehow figured out he was Skrillex and the car was his ... they uncuffed him, cited him for a noise violation and driving without proper ID, and let him go on his merry way.

Skrillex then took to Twitter and complained to Elon ... but it's really more like a Tesla endorsement.
