U.S. Air Force Airmen in Charge of Nuclear Weapons ... Trippin' on LSD

5/24/2018 6:50 AM PDT

Now this will scare the crap out of you ... a group of Air Force airmen responsible for guarding nuclear weapons were heavy into LSD and cocaine.

The jaw-dropping revelations just surfaced ... and not because the government wanted it known. Turns out one of the airmen screwed up and posted a big enough hint on social media to raise eyebrows, and through a series of Freedom of Information Act demands, the Associated Press got the story.

The service members were part of the 90th Missile Wing, responsible for one third of the 400 Minutemen 3 missiles tucked away in silos across the northern Great Plains.

The LSD use was especially problematic, because it's an hallucinogen that can permanently mess up the brain. As the Air Force noted in a dozen court marshals during the scandal -- which went down in 2015 and 2016 -- LSD has "profound effects" from even a tiny amount, causing "paranoia, fear and panic, unwanted and overwhelming feelings, unwanted life-changing spiritual experiences, and flashbacks."

One of the airmen who was tripping said during a bad acid trip, "I'm dying! ... When is this going to end?" Another talked about how much he enjoyed the drug, saying, "Minutes felt like hours, colors seemed more vibrant and clear."

It wasn't just a random guy dropping acid. This was a full-blown drug ring.

Disciplinary action was taken against 14 airmen. Two accused airmen were acquitted and 3 others were not charged. Others served time in jail.

Stormy Daniels Pushy Goon Squad ... Down at The Abbey

5/24/2018 6:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stormy Daniels was rolling deep with security for her appearance in West Hollywood -- and as they say ... there's strength -- and apparently jerk-offs -- in numbers.

We got Trump's alleged one-time mistress hitting up The Abbey in WeHo Wednesday night right on the heels of celebrating Stormy Daniels Day and receiving a key to the city.

She had quite the entourage around her -- some security ... and one rando who got into it with paps on the way in. The same dude who flipped off the cameras resurfaced on the way out, but it was one of Stormy's bodyguards who had the last shove ... and alleged theft.

There hasn't been a camera Stormy and co. have met that they didn't like ... until now. 

Rep. Al Green to President Trump One More Racial Slur & I'm Coming For You!!!

5/24/2018 7:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump has officially been put on notice by a Democratic lawmaker hell-bent on impeaching 45 ... and it's got nothing to do with the Russians.

We got Congressman Al Green at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday and wanted him to clarify the statements he made last week ... saying there's a likelihood impeachment articles would be filed if Democrats regain control of both branches in Congress.

Green's adamant Trump's committed impeachable offenses, but his beef has nothing to do with Robert Mueller's investigation into whether Russians meddled in the 2016 elections. Green argues there's bigotry emanating from the presidency, and he's out to put an end to Trump's act.

Donald Trump Players Who Don't Stand Don't Belong In America!

5/24/2018 5:56 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump fully supports the new NFL policy on the national anthem -- he says players who don't stand should maybe "not be in the country."

The President spoke with "FOX & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade -- saying, "You have to stand proudly for the national anthem or you shouldn't be playing. You shouldn't be there."

He added. "Maybe you shouldn't be in the country."

There's one part of the new policy Trump didn't like -- the option players have to stay in the locker room.

"I don't think people should be staying in locker rooms. But still I think it's good."

Of course, Trump has been railing for a while against players who demonstrate during the anthem -- and wanted NFL owners to fire Colin Kaepernick for starting the movement

By the way, Donald Trump has bragged how much he opposed the Vietnam War -- the method of protest back then was burning the flag. 

Tomi Lahren No Charges for Water Thrower

5/24/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who threw a glass of water at Tomi Lahren will not face criminal charges, and she actually has Tomi to thank for that ... partly.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the act of tossing water at Tomi is not harmful enough for cops to bring charges or open an investigation on their own. We're told Tomi herself -- or her mom, who was also hit with water -- would need to file a police report.

Sources close to Tomi tell us that's not going to happen ... so no charges will be coming.

As we reported ... the conservative Fox News contributor was having brunch with her mother at a Minneapolis bar last weekend when a woman chucked the water at her unprovoked.

The incident led President Trump to tweet out vocal support for Tomi, saying everybody is with her.

We're guessing this doesn't apply to the water thrower ... even if Lahren is letting her off the hook.

Georgia Surgeon Accused of Dancing During Operations

5/23/2018 3:11 PM PDT

A plastic surgeon in Georgia is now being put under a microscope after allegedly putting patients under the knife with music blaring ... and her body groovin'.

Dr. Windell Davis Boutte has reportedly been sued multiple times over the last few months  -- and in some cases, reportedly settled -- for alleged malpractice after being accused of dancing during her surgeries ... and posting the clips online. 

A lot of the videos were reportedly used as evidence in the malpractice suits -- and it sure looks like Dr. Boutte was getting her boogie on while cutting patients open. One malpractice case allegedly left one woman, Icilma Cornelius, with permanent brain damage.

According to reports of the lawsuit the woman's son filed against Boutte, the doc allegedly had to call an ambulance after Cornelius suffered heart failure during a tummy tuck surgery since she didn't have the proper equipment to deal with the emergency at her practice.

Before paramedics could rush her away, Boutte is accused of needing to stitch Cornelius' skin back together to avoid the infecting the wounds, delaying transport. Not only that, but the son claims her office's elevator couldn't fit the stretcher, and his mom had to be carried down.

Once at the hospital, her son says she was diagnosed with permanent brain damage, leaving her requiring lifelong care. The case was reportedly settled ... unclear if dancing was alleged.

Michael Rotondo Evicted 30-Yr-Old Says My Parents Are Not Good People

5/23/2018 1:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old man whose mom and dad sued to get him booted from their home, claims he'll gladly leave ... eventually ... but he definitely won't forgive his folks.

Rotondo was on "TMZ Live" talking about the court case he lost. The judge sided with his parents and told the grown-ass man -- who doesn't pay rent -- he needed to heed his parents' eviction notice. He says he plans to appeal and, for now, he's still living with them.

He told us nothing's changed in the house, as far as his relationship with his parents -- icy cold as ever. But he really unloaded on them when we asked if he thinks his parents are good people.

As for getting the hell outta Dodge, getting a j-o-b, and getting his own place? Rotondo says he's got a game plan ... although we doubt his parents will like his timeline.

BTW, his Skype signal crapped out right in the middle of our interview, so we finished up by phone. Insert your own "cost of wifi" joke here.

Breaking News

Ex-MLB star Lenny Dykstra was arrested early Wednesday morning in New Jersey after allegedly pulling a gun on an Uber driver and threatening to kill him.

Oh, and cops say he also had cocaine and ecstasy on him at the time of the arrest.

Officials say the 55-year-old was busted outside Linden, NJ police headquarters after a terrified Uber driver told authorities Dykstra pulled a gun, put it to his head, and threatened to kill him. 

So, what set Dykstra off?

The driver claims Lenny had asked to change destinations during the ride -- but the driver refused ... and Lenny flipped out.

Cops say the Uber driver furiously began honking the horn in the hopes of signaling police -- and then finally ran from  the car and alerted police.

When cops got to Dykstra, they did NOT find a gun ... however, they did find cocaine, marijuana, and MDMA (ecstasy).

Dykstra was arrested for making terroristic threats, and numerous drug possession offenses.

He was taken to Union County Jail ... where he was later released.

Dykstra hit up Twitter this afternoon to address the arrest ... quoting Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" ... "But I keep cruising, can't stop, won't stop moving, It's like I got this music in my mind, sayin' gonna be alright."

Marlon Wayans Outraged Over Houston's Arrests ... 'One Day it Will Be Your Ass'

5/23/2018 7:07 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Wayans is outraged over the arrest of 3 women at a Houston's restaurant in Atlanta, saying you don't have to be black to rise up, because if you don't it's only a matter of time before it happens to you.

We got Marlon Tuesday leaving Equinox in WeHo ... and he delivered a fiery parking lot sermon ... saying just because the curly fries and steaks are delicious is no excuse to turn a blind eye to what he believes is a human rights violation.

As we reported, the 3 women were arrested after a security guard dragged them out of the women's restroom.

Marlon doesn't think this is a black issue ... it's an issue of human decency and if people don't rise up and be counted they will eventually find themselves on the chopping block. 

Steve Aoki Kendrick Was Right N-Word Is Off-Limits to White Fans

5/23/2018 7:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The n-word is off-limits period if you're white, and Kendrick Lamar handled the uncomfortable moment onstage when a white fan rapped the word like a pro ... according to Steve Aoki

Steve told us just that Tuesday as he meandered around Times Square in NYC ... adding Kendrick was super polite in schooling his fan.

Kung Fu Kenny picked a white fan from the crowd at a festival in Alabama to rap onstage with him, but had to stop the song when she repeatedly dropped the n-word in the lyrics.

Aoki says Kendrick did the right thing by giving her another shot but says the schooling was necessary because of the current racial climate in America, which he uses the perfect words to describe.

Ex-Prez Vicente Fox Forget Netflix Money Grab, Obama ... The World Needs You!!!

5/23/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Barack and Michelle Obama are making a huge mistake with their Netflix deal ... according to Vicente Fox, who says they should focus on helping people, instead of making money.

We got the ex-Mexican Prez Tuesday in D.C. and asked him about the Obamas locking up a production deal to make films, series and documentaries for Netflix. He's not on board.

In fact, he fully challenged the former first couple.

Fox says their jump into entertainment comes at the worst time, because their leadership's desperately needed in other arenas.

Vicente's no fan of President Trump, and doesn't call him by name, but watch -- he urges Obama to help the Democrats win in November.

Translation: take down Trump's Republicans now ... make your showbiz bucks later.

Houston's Arrests We Got NO Warning Before Assault ... Says Asia'h Epperson

5/22/2018 2:39 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the 3 women busted at Houston's says the restaurant's flat-out lying with its claim the women ignored warnings to leave before a security guard dragged them out.

Asia'h Epperson -- an actress and former "American idol" contestant -- told us she was shocked the police arrested her and her friends, instead of the guard. She's the one who shot the video of the alleged assault ... which now has T.I. on the warpath.

She says a Houston's staffer gladly let them use the restroom, and never asked them to leave prior to the violent incident.

Asia'h already has a lawyer, and it sounds like a lawsuit's in the offing. She also reacted to T.I. saying he's going Malcolm X on Houston's, and wants to shut down the whole chain.

As she put it ... he's battled the restaurant before and won.

Tomi Lahren Gets a Drink Thrown on Her ... At Minneapolis Bar

5/22/2018 12:45 PM PDT

Tomi Lahren made a splash in Minneapolis this week -- or rather, a splash was rendered to her. 

The conservative FOX News contributor was grabbing brunch with her mother and some family this past weekend when, on the way out, an anonymous woman chucked a full glass of water at her. Sources close to Tomi say the hurling was completely unprovoked.

In the clip, you can see Tomi come back to confront the woman and what appears to be the group she was with. A staff member seems to break it up and escort Tomi out. BTW ... we're told some of the water got on Tomi's mom as well.

Tomi is known as a lightning rod of controversy, having commented on hot button issues recently like gun control (or a lack thereof), Trump and Stormy, alleged animal abuse ... and even racist lawyer Aaron Schlossberg (whom she denounced, for the record).

Still, it seems she can't avoid the ire of the general public at times. Case in point ... this.
