Tomi Lahren Don't Count Out Omarosa ... Mueller Won't Nail Trump

12/15/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tomi Lahren thinks Omarosa has nine lives when it comes to President Trump.

We got the FOX News contributor at LAX Thursday and she thinks the only thing Omarosa's unceremonious exit proves is it's never a dull moment at the White House these days. As for the future ... she's betting the Prez keeps his former adviser close.

Tomi saved her hottest take, though, for Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. While even some of Trump's allies think it's getting too close, Tomi said the probe stinks like ... well, just watch.

Omarosa My Next Big Move ... Don't Rule Out Politics!

12/14/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Omarosa's out at the White House, but she's not on the outs with government, and in fact, is already eyeing other federal positions ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported ... Omarosa and President Trump say they're on good terms after her exit from the administration, and we're told she's optimistic their relationship will help her down the road.

Sources close to the situation tell us ... O believes she'd be a good candidate for an undersecretary position. On the more ambitious side, she's eyeing an ambassador role with Nigeria ... due to her heritage on her father's side. 

We're told she's also open to a gig in her new home state of Florida ... as a Senior Regional Appointment Person. It's basically a local liaison for Trump's administration. Even if she bolts from government altogether, Omarosa wouldn't go too far because plan B is pursuing a lobbyist gig.

Bottom line ... she's caught the political bug. 

Anderson Cooper Blame My Assistant ... For Anti-Trump Tweet

12/13/2017 1:43 PM PST

CNN says it's gotten to the bottom of Anderson Cooper's Trump-bashing tweet ... and all signs point to a forgetful assistant.

The mystery was cleared up Wednesday when the network said the message was sent from Cooper's assistant in NYC, while Anderson was in D.C.

CNN says the assistant, who's been on the job for 10 years, left his phone unlocked and unattended at the gym, and someone grabbed it and fired off the tweet. He's apparently the only other person besides Anderson with access to the account.

As we reported ... Anderson's verified Twitter account replied to Trump early Wednesday morning -- calling 45 a "tool!" and a "Pathetic loser."

Ted Cruz can relate ... those damn staffers do screw up sometimes

Omarosa Yeah, I'm Out ... But the Prez & I Are All Good!

12/13/2017 11:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

4:00 PM PT -- As expected, Trump issued a statement via Twitter wishing Omarosa well.

Omarosa and her old boss, Donald Trump, are NOT on the outs even though she's out of the White House -- 'cause they were still chummy Wednesday morning ... TMZ has learned.

A well-placed source at the White House tells us President Trump spoke with Omarosa on the phone Wednesday following her resignation/"firing," depending on who you talk to, from Tuesday night.

We're told O and DT spoke for about an hour, and the conversation was warm and cordial. Our source also tells us the Prez will be issuing a statement -- or probably (most definitely) a tweet -- wishing Omarosa well and saying she'll be missed.

We broke the story ... Omarosa and Trump butted heads over a number of issues in his first year as President, including his handling of Charlottesville, beefing with Rep. Wilson and Roy Moore ... not to mention feuding with Chief of Staff General Kelly over access to Trump.

Our source adds that it was, in fact, Omarosa's decision to leave -- like the White House said at first -- and explains Trump himself was not looking to fire her.

All's well that ends well for old pals, we suppose.

Omarosa Battled Trump & Gen. Kelly Prior to White House 'Firing'

12/13/2017 10:23 AM PST
Exclusive Details

The White House is officially saying Omarosa quietly resigned, but multiple sources tell TMZ there was plenty of drama between her, Donald Trump and his Chief of Staff prior to her departure.

Sources close to Omarosa tell us she started thinking about resigning back in August after the Charlottesville riots, because she disagreed with Trump's handling of the crisis. We're told she took issue with Trump saying there were good people on both sides ... which, of course, included the neo-Nazis. 

Our sources in Omarosa's camp say she also didn't appreciate Trump beefing with Rep. Frederica Wilson, or bungling a call with an African-American Gold Star widow. We're told Trump's endorsement of Roy Moore was the last straw. 

Now, people in Omarosa's camp say she pulled the trigger on resigning Tuesday night. However, other White House sources tell us she was "fired" by Gen. John Kelly after she tried to get an audience with the Prez following Moore's loss.

Even our Omarosa sources admit she had frequently bumped heads with Kelly. We're told she talked to Trump every other day, and Kelly wasn't happy she had so much access.

President Trump Sexual Assault Accusers Demand Investigation by Congress

12/11/2017 7:32 AM PST

Three women accusing President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct are demanding Congress investigate their claims.

Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Cooks held a press conference in L.A. Monday -- detailing their alleged experiences with Trump -- and asked Congress take a closer look into their claims. 

Among the allegations -- Cooks says Trump forcibly kissed her in 2005, and Leeds claims Trump grabbed her breasts and tried putting his hand up her skirt during a flight to NYC more than 3 decades ago.

The news conference comes one day after U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said anyone claiming they're victims of sexual misconduct should be heard.

The White House calls the allegations absurd and false.

Roy Hibbert Calls BS On LaVar, Trump Feud 'I Bet They're Best Friends'

12/8/2017 7:01 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

You're a fool if you think LaVar Ball and Donald Trump actually hate each other ... 'cause they're just trolling the world for fun -- so says NBA big man Roy Hibbert.

We got Roy at LAX ... and showed him LaVar's new GIF animation of him POSTERIZING the POTUS.

The ex-Laker thought it was pretty cool ... but wasn't about to pretend like there was anything to it. 

"I bet they’re best friends," Hibbert told TMZ Sports. "It's playful banter ... they’re probably friends on the low."

Roy might be onto something -- check out how LaVar greeted frenemy Joel Embiid at yesterday's Lakers-76ers game ...

Melania Trump Hawking 2018 RNC Calendars So Prez can 'Keep Winning'

12/7/2017 11:11 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Melania Trump's reaching out to some of her husband's supporters and offering them the first crack at a special 2018 calendar ... for just a small contribution, of course.

This is no ordinary calendar, either ... it's the official RNC calendar featuring photos hand-picked by the First Lady that she hopes will serve as "a reminder of how important the 2018 elections are to the future of our country."

Melania's only asking Trump supporters to chip in 15 bucks for the calendar, too ... to ensure the Prez and the Party have resources to keep racking up the wins.

But if they feel so inclined, supporters can donate way more -- up to $2,700 a month!

Mohamed Hadid on Trump Jerusalem as Israel's Capital? It's A Sad Day

12/7/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Mohamed Hadid isn't happy about President Trump's decision to recognize a new capital in Israel ... and he's hoping violence won't be an outcome.

We got Bella and Gigi Hadid's dad -- who's Palestinian himself -- shortly after Trump announced the U.S. was going to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's new capital, and he calls it a "sad day in my life." 

Mohamed says with tensions so high in the area ... he fears more bloodshed.

Sounds like he's wishing for the best ... while others are holding their breath.

Gloria Estefan Thanks, Prez Trump For Best No-Show Ever!!!

12/4/2017 2:30 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Gloria Estefan is applauding President Trump for staying home and, for once, not stealing the spotlight from her and several other entertainment legends.

We got Gloria Monday at Reagan National in D.C. after her big night with LL Cool J, Lionel Richie, Norman Lear and Carmen de Lavallade at the Kennedy Center Honors. Normally, sitting Presidents always attend the gala, but Trump bowed up -- just the 4th time that's happened.

Pay close attention to this clip ... it might be the first and last time you see Gloria -- vocal opponent of many Trump policies -- say something positive about POTUS.

See? We can all get along. Even when we're clearly not getting along.

Congressman Andre Carson Jay-Z for Prez!!!

12/1/2017 9:31 AM PST

Jay-Z should give Donald Trump a run for his money in 2020 ... so says Congressman Andre Carson.

We got the distinguished gentleman from Indiana in D.C. Thursday, and asked him if he enjoyed Hova's 4:44 tour stop at the Capital One Arena. Carson gushed about the show ... and then took his praise one HUGE step further.

Check it out ... Rep. Carson -- who grew up in a similar environment to Jay-Z -- gives a shout out to Diddy, Damon Dash and Master P ... before anointing Hova a viable candidate for the White House.

Carson for Veep?

LaVar Ball I Sent Trump His ZO2 Shoes ... POTUS Rocking BBB?!

11/30/2017 6:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

2:25 PM PT -- The White House tells TMZ Sports they have not yet received the shoes ... but are currently "trying to track them down."

Donald Trump is officially a Big Baller -- this according to LaVar Ball, who says POTUS ZO2 kicks are in the mail ... on the way to the White House! 

"I sent Trump his shoes," LaVar told TMZ Sports at Staples Center after Lakers vs. Warriors. "He should have them -- unless they took 'em!"

Unclear if White House security would let Trump receive the package -- especially with his mortal enemy's name on the return address -- but props to LaVar for following up on his weekend promise.

The BBB founder also threw some shade at Steph Curry before he rode off into the night -- saying the 2-time MVP ain't better than Lonzo Ball or even LaMelo!

Right.

Killer Mike Kaep Is Person of the Year ... NOT Trump!

11/30/2017 11:11 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump is NOT Time magazine's Person of the Year ... the honor should go to Colin Kaepernick -- that's according to rap star Killer Mike, who says Kaep's a leader and Trump's an "entertainer."

We got Mike out in ATL ... and he told TMZ Sports he gets why Trump's in the running ... but at the same time, POTUS can't hold a candle to Colin.

"We like entertainers. Donald Trump is a successful entrepreneur but essentially he's an entertainer."

Mike says Kaep's an entertainer too in the sense that he's a pro athlete ... but the QB's used his platform to do A LOT more.

"I'm very, very proud of Colin Kaepernick and the stance he's taken. The man's essentially given up his career to bring social awareness to the fact that agents of the state -- police officers -- are killing citizens."

So, the award should be CK all day.

Not that Trump gives a damn.
