Ellen Page Gay Debate with Preacher ... Amid D.C. Protests

1/20/2017 10:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ellen Page got into a heated debate with a preacher over homosexuality ... and it all went down as chaos was building around them on the streets of Washington, D.C.

Ellen's in town for some inaugural events -- including the Women's March on Saturday -- but Friday outside the National Press Building she ended up going toe-to-toe, verbally, with a man of the cloth.

He labeled homosexuality "demonic," but Ellen kept her cool. She, at least, is there for peaceful debate.

Well played, Ellen.

Donald Trump Obama Watches Speech in Near Anguish

1/20/2017 9:26 AM PST

President Obama could not hide his disdain and President Donald Trump made his position clear ... the Obama administration did no favors to America.

Obama winces and arguably scoffs as Trump says the course of our nation will change from weakness to greatness.

After the speech, you see Obama perfunctorily tell Trump, "Good job," but Michelle cannot hide her contempt.

Prez Trump and Melania We're @POTUS and @FLOTUS Now

Twitter's official POTUS and FLOTUS handles have changed profile images to President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump

Twitter made the switch almost immediately after Trump was sworn in as the 45th Prez. Meanwhile, the Obamas are now @POTUS44 and @FLOTUS44.

This appears to be the first time in history Twitter's done this. Tweeting wasn't nearly as widespread in 2009, and @POTUS wasn't created until 2015.

Peaceful transition ... on social media. Just as the forefathers wanted it.

Donald Trump Takes the Oath ... Becomes 45th POTUS

1/20/2017 7:15 AM PST

Donald Trump was sworn in Friday as the 45th President of the United States at the U.S. Capitol.

The oath itself went off without a hitch ... however, Prez Trump's speech -- filled with images of an America in ruins -- seemed to rub the Obamas the wrong way. It was written all over their faces.

As for 16-year-old Jackie Evancho's 'Star Spangled Banner' -- flawless.  

Attendance wasn't quite the record-setter the new POTUS hoped it would be. Looks like Barack gets to hold on to his 2009 record ... which was estimated to be about 2 million.

EXCLUSIVE

Anti-Trump protests are already getting violent -- we got this crazy video of a fight breaking out on a Washington, D.C. street, and a woman was assaulted ... just one block from the inauguration.

It's unclear what sparked the conflict, but it appears some Trump protesters pissed off a group of men walking past them ... then all hell broke loose. Radio host Alex Jones was nearby and shouted for cops as one of the men hit a female protester.

Officers responded quickly, but it's obvious it's going to be a tense day in Washington. We're already seeing roving groups of masked people destroying property.

Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner Rabbi Gave Us a Shabbat Pass for Inauguration Friday Night

1/20/2017 9:45 AM PST

0120-ivanka-trump-Jared-Kushner-tmz-gettyIvanka Trump and hubby Jared Kushner got special permission from a rabbi to break from Orthodox Jewish laws that ban use of technology -- like cars -- on the very night they're celebrating Donald Trump's inauguration.

As you might know, the day of rest for Jews -- or the Sabbath -- begins at sundown Friday until sundown Saturday. During that time traveling by car is not allowed for followers of Orthodox doctrine.

But Ivanka and Jared got a pass for their own safety, as the rule of pikuach nefesh overrides other commandments in the Torah.

Ivanka, who converted, and Jared would obviously need a car to get around for her father's festivities around D.C. scheduled to go late into the night -- not just for convenience, but safety.

Century Plaza Hotel Insane Hollywood Themed Video Display

1/20/2017 11:16 AM PST

The city of Los Angeles got a sneak peek of the $2.5 billion Century Plaza Thursday night -- and it certainly made an impression -- with a video show that lit up the entire side of a building.

Josh Duhamel, Ellen Pompeo and Darren Criss -- to name a few -- showed up for the unveiling. Industry sources say the presentation alone hovered right around $1 million to put on ... the hotel, brought together by visionary real estate developer Michael Rosenfeld, is set to open in 2018.

As for those rumors former Pussy Cat Doll Nicole Scherzinger will take Fergie's place in The Black Eyed Peas? We asked Josh ... but somethin' tells us he just doesn't care.

Donald Trump & Melania First Dance 'My Way' Sung By Trio

1/20/2017 7:13 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The song for Donald Trump's first dance as President of the United States will be to "My Way" ... and since Sinatra is no longer available, it will take 3 to fill his shoes.

Trump and Melania will dance to the song, performed by Erin Boheme, Nickie Conley and Jason Eskridge ... all singers out of Nashville.

As TMZ reported, Paul Anka, who wrote the song for Frank Sinatra was also asked to perform the epic tune over Inaugural weekend but had to back out because of a custody trial and medical issues.

Anka actually changed the lyrics and stylized the song for Trump years ago and sang it 3 times during events at Mar-a-Lago. But Erin tells us she and the other 2 will do the OG Sinatra version.

Melania's powder blue dress was in the same family as the coat Jackie Kennedy wore 56 years ago to the day.
