Sen. Marco Rubio Vladimir Putin Kills His Enemies, Duh!!!

7/18/2018 7:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Marco Rubio doesn't need convincing Vladimir Putin kills his opponents ... he says it's obvious.

We got the Senator from Florida in D.C. Tuesday to get his take on Putin straight-up getting asked by FOX News host Chris Wallace why so many of his political rivals end up dead.

You'll recall Putin answered by calling out the U.S. for the assassinations of JFK and MLK. Rubio ain't buying the answer because there's a fundamental difference in those murders.

Rubio also wants Prez Trump to get a reality check ... Putin's not America's friend!!

Donald Trump Beware of Putin's Ball

7/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT

The Secret Service better seriously check that soccer ball Vladimir Putin gave Donald Trump at their summit, because security experts tell us there's a simple way of putting a bugging device inside that is difficult to detect.

As you know, Trump threw the ball to Melania during the summit and announced it was going to their son, Barron, who's into soccer.

We did some checking, and there are thin devices that can be stitched inside the ball with a power source that could last around 1 month or longer. Furthermore, we're told it's possible for a bug to be nonmetallic, which makes it harder to detect. And, any spy worth his or her salt would know ... you don't activate the bug right away, which would make detection much more difficult.

Obviously, there would be cause to thoroughly scan the ball for any signal, but in Trump's world he's been extremely trusting of the Russians ... even inviting Russian media into the Oval.

It's important to note Trump treasures sports memorabilia -- his office in Trump Tower is littered with balls, bats, golf clubs, football helmets and a lot more he's collected from pro athletes over the years. Barron lives with his parents in the residence quarter of The White House. So, if the ball is out in the open ...

It sounds crazy for sure, but remember ... this is a President who said he believes Russia didn't meddle in the election, despite proof the DNC was hacked by Putin and his minions.

Rep. Ted Lieu Vladimir Putin's Got Dirt on Trump How Else to Explain This?!

7/17/2018 11:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

What President Trump said publicly with Vladimir Putin standing next to him was so shocking it begs the question -- what kinda dirt does Putin have on Trump? That's what Rep. Ted Lieu wants to know.

We got the California Congressman on Capitol Hill Tuesday and he thinks what happened is obvious ... when Trump sold out the U.S. intelligence community by siding with Putin.

Lieu says the only way to explain Trump's behavior is that Putin knows something none of us know. And, he wants answers.

Christian Slater $300k for Putin Summit? God, Trump's an 'Ass****!!!'

7/17/2018 7:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Christian Slater's throwing a jab at President Trump for the summit with Vladimir Putin, but not for his words ... this one's all about spending $300k on the summit.

We got the "Mr. Robot" star in D.C. Tuesday and he quickly shared his thoughts on the story we broke -- the administration's six-figure tab at the Helsinki summit. For the record, the full amount was $302,124.62.

Christian kept it short and sweet -- or bitter, depending on your perspective -- and took a very personal shot ... one related to Trump's sobriety.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Trump's a Putin Fanboy ... He Sold Out Our Country!!!

7/16/2018 4:49 PM PDT
Breaking News

Arnold Schwarzenegger is slamming President Trump for sucking up to Vladimir Putin and selling out the U.S. intelligence community in front of the whole world.

Arnold called 45's joint news conference with the Russian Prez an embarrassment because he "stood there like a little wet noodle ... like a little fanboy."

POTUS is facing heavy criticism for publicly blaming "both" sides -- Russia AND the U.S. -- for election interference, and saying Mueller's probe is driving a wedge between the countries. 

Arnold goes HAM on the Prez, and implores him to grow a more Reagan-esque backbone.

Sen. Ed Markey Trump Not with U.S. ... He's with Putin!!!

7/16/2018 5:19 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump threw the U.S. under the bus by publicly taking Vladimir Putin's word that Russia didn't meddle in the 2016 election ... so says Massachusetts' U.S. senator.

We got Sen. Ed Markey Monday in D.C. and he said Trump's display in Helsinki makes it clear he's only looking out for himself in dealing with Putin. He defied U.S. intelligence info, and said he didn't see any reason why Russia would have meddled in our elections. 

Markey says Monday's summit should have been confrontational, but instead turned into an embarrassing display of virtual ass-kissing.

As for why it went down that way -- the Senator didn't dismiss the conspiracy theory about Russia having dirt on 45.

Vladimir Putin Gives Trump World Cup Ball ... In Hacky Metaphor

7/16/2018 9:22 AM PDT
Breaking News

Vladimir Putin presented Donald Trump with a soccer ball from the World Cup in Russia ... and then dropped the following eye-rolling metaphor ... 

"Mr. President, I'll give this ball to you ... and now the ball is in your court."

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. 

It all went down at a massive media event in Helsinki, where the two world leaders had a private meeting for several hours where they discussed everything from election interference to NATO. 

Trump was fired up about the meeting -- and the soccer ball, throwing it to Melania (who was sitting in the front row) and announcing that he would be giving it to his son, Barron.

POTUS also praised Putin for the way his country hosted the 2018 World Cup and said the US will strive to do "as good a job" when it comes to the States in 2026. 

Michelle & Sasha Obama La Première Famille Crash Bey and Jay's Paris Concert

7/15/2018 1:27 PM PDT

Beyonce and Jay-Z's close relationship with the Obamas is still going strong, now in full flex across the pond ... with Michelle and Sasha crashing the couple's concert in France.

The former First Lady and kid were spotted in the stands Sunday at the Stade de France stadium, where Bey and Jay are performing as part of their "On the Run II" tour. 

Michelle even went beyond the front row barricades, standing alongside Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles ... and getting her groove on as Jay rapped onstage. As mothers to very important people ... they looked like quite the duo shoulder-to-shoulder.

No sign of Barack or Malia here, but the Obama family was definitely well represented. It's no surprise they're there either -- Michelle and her 2 daughters did the same back in 2014, when B&J were performing in Chicago. 

Seems like they like to catch 'em when they can. Who wouldn't? 

Gloria Allred If Kavanaugh is a Trump Puppet Abortion Rights Will Die!!!

7/11/2018 3:13 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gloria Allred thinks the new Supreme Court nominee puts President Trump one HUGE step closer to achieving his goal of overturning Roe v. Wade, and she's afraid Senators won't do a thing to stop it.

Allred is fired up about Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to replace Anthony Kennedy on the High Court. The longtime women's rights advocate fears Kavanaugh will do Trump's bidding if he's confirmed. Before he was elected the Prez said he expects Roe v. Wade to be rolled back because he planned to appoint judges who are anti-abortion.

Gloria got very personal, opening up about the nearly fatal abortion she endured.

Kavanaugh has said he would follow Supreme Court precedent on the abortion issue -- but Allred doesn't trust him ... or the Senators who are expected to grill him during his confirmation hearing.

And, as she's always maintained, Gloria says there's only ONE group that should be trusted on such an important issue.

George Lopez Lets Loose on Trump's Star ... With Some Phony Pee!!!

7/11/2018 12:27 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

George Lopez gave Donald Trump's Hollywood star his version of the No. 1 treatment ... unleashing a massive fake pee stream all over it.

The comedian -- who has made no bones about his beef with the Prez -- was in Hollywood Tuesday and coincidentally found himself right in front of Trump's star on the Walk of Fame. After chatting up fans, George decided to unload his water bottle a la fake pee on Trump's marker.

Check it out ... everyone seemed to enjoy the spectacle, and GLo was pretty relieved too. (Pun intended).

Not the first time Trump's star's been targeted. You'll remember the toilet incident, this sticky situation and, of course, the infamous pickax job.

Sen. Cory Booker Trump Picked Kavanaugh To Cover Him in Mueller Probe

7/10/2018 10:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sen. Cory Booker says President Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court is nothing more than an insurance policy ... in case Robert Mueller comes knocking.

We got the NJ Senator Tuesday outside the Supreme Court building, and he unloaded on the President's SCOTUS pick ... saying the Trump stands to benefit most. Booker points out Mueller is waging a legal battle to get permission to interview POTUS for his investigation into whether Russia meddled with the election.

The Senator thinks that's where Kavanaugh could end up being Trump's ace in the hole ... because Mueller's legal war could end up in front of the Supreme Court. 

We also asked NY Sen. Chuck Schumer if women should be worried about Kavanaugh's nomination. Okay, we admit it ... that was a lobbed-up softball for Schumer. Not shockingly, the short version of his answer is ... hell yeah.

President Trump Announces Judge Brett Kavanaugh ... As New SCOTUS Nominee

7/9/2018 6:29 PM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump has tapped his pick for the next Supreme Court justice to replace Anthony Kennedy -- and he's being hailed as a strong conservative choice.

The Prez nominated DC Circuit Court of Appeals judge Brett Kavanaugh Monday, nearly two weeks after Kennedy announced he was retiring. Kavanaugh, a George W. Bush appointee, is considered by many to be an establishment guy, and has even been called the "Forrest Gump of Republican politics." He's also Catholic.

Kavanaugh has quite the resume ... having gone to Yale Law, and working in the Solicitor General's office in George H.W. Bush's administration. He also worked for Ken Starr during his investigation into then-President Bill Clinton, and is credited with pushing for tough questions on Bubba's sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky.

Oh, and he also used to clerk for the guy he's replacing on the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh has been serving on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals since 2006. He hasn't weighed in on a whole lot of abortion cases personally, but is reported as saying he would follow Supreme Court precedent on abortion rights, but hasn't disclosed his own views on Roe v. Wade.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Calm Down, America With Restaurant Confrontations

7/8/2018 6:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sarah Huckabee Sanders has some words for folks confronting Trump associates in public -- especially at restaurants -- and it starts with c ... CHIIILLLLL OUT.

We got President Trump's Press Sec. Sunday in D.C., where we asked if the country should simmer down with all these restaurant run-ins lately. She says it'd be great if that would happen, and not just for liberals ... sounds like she's talking to conservatives too.

If you've been living under a rock these past few weeks ... Trump staffers have been getting accosted at eateries, and elsewhere, left and right. Sarah was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in June, and former EPA chief Scott Pruitt was asked to resign while dining.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was also screamed at by protesters while eating at a Mexican restaurant last month. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell got a taste of that as well this weekend while leaving an eatery in Louisville, KY. 

The heated face-offs have sparked a national debate about civility. From what we hear here, it's clear where Sarah stands ... we can all be a little more civil to one another.
