Donald Trump Mysterious Inauguration Misstep By Soldiers

1/20/2017 2:54 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump's inaugural speech did not go off without a hitch -- there was a clear fumble by the military -- but everyone's clammed up.

Trump began speaking and a minute and a half later, 8 men in uniform walk the steps and flank the prez from behind.

You see in the video, they stand motionless for 40 seconds when another man in uniform appears, clearly whispers something to the effect of, "We gotta get outta here STAT," and they quickly leave.

We've made a ton of calls to the military and no one's giving us an answer. Several of the people we spoke with say it was clearly a misstep for the guys to come out, but they won't say how it happened.

One of the last people we spoke with simply said, "No one's saying anything."

0120-emily-ratajkowski-modeling-shirtless-puppy-photos-launch-2Emily Ratajkowski stripped down to almost nothing and took her puppies out for a chilly winter stroll. A cute little dog was there too. 

The model/actress hit Manhattan streets in her boots and undies Friday to shoot a DKNY commercial. Temps were in the 40s, so you gotta admire her commitment.

Among other things.

The Obamas Their Last Presidential-ish Flight

1/20/2017 2:50 PM PST

0120-barack-michelle-obama-final-flight-palm-springs-INSTAGRAM-01Barack and Michelle Obama had good friends waiting to join them for their last ride in the lap of Air Force One-ish luxury.

Obama's ambassador to Spain, James Costos, posted a pic from inside the jet, watching the now former prez and First Lady walking the red carpet to climb aboard. Looks like they snacked on grapes.

Giving Costos a ride is the least they could do. As we first reported ... the Obamas are heading to the Palm Springs home of Costos and his husband, Michael Smith, who's been the White House decorator.

0120-obama-palm-springs-home-vacation-SPLASH-02FUN FACT: Obama's ride is no longer designated Air Force One -- not since Trump took the oath, anyway. It's official call letters are SAM (Special Air Mission) 28000.

Same perks, different name.

Jackie Evancho I'll Sing for a Lot More Presidents

1/20/2017 2:22 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jackie Evancho had plenty of butterflies right before she sang the national anthem at Donald Trump's inauguration, but walked away so pumped ... she's ready for several encores.

We talked to Jackie moments after she NAILED "The Star Spangled Banner" and she explained her range of emotions through the experience. She got a thumbs up from the new prez.

That's just the beginning for the 16-year-old who says she'd lock down inaugurations as her thing.

Donald Trump Inauguration Protesters Won't Go Hungry Behind Bars

1/20/2017 1:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-prisoner-dinner-in-jail-tmz-gettyProtests are raging on in Washington D.C. where, so far, more than 90 people have been arrested ... but when it comes to meals, they might wish they protested in a different city.

We got the menu for several jails in the major U.S. cities where protests are either underway or scheduled to begin later Friday. Here's what the jailbirds will get: 

Washington D.C.:
Lunch: Bologna and cheese sandwich
Dinner: Cod fish, sweet potatoes, mixed veggies, biscuits and fudge brownies

NYC:
Lunch: Ground turkey, fried rice, green beans, carrots and celery, whole wheat bread, fresh fruit and lemonade fruit drink
Dinner: Bake battered fish, tartar sauce, lyonnaise potatoes, mixed vegetables, whole wheat bread, margarine, apple fruit drink and hot tea

L.A.:
Lunch: Bologna sandwich and an apple
Dinner: Salisbury steak and steamed veggies

Obviously, all jail kitchens aren't created equal.

Rioting. It works up an appetite. And don't forget ... protesters can also get free legal advice once they get out.

Donald Trump Inaugural Parade

1/20/2017 11:52 AM PST

0120-trump-parade-launch

Donald Trump made the almost 2 mile-long trek down Pennsylvania Avenue for his inaugural parade, as protests were breaking out just blocks away.

The Prez and First Lady remained in their limo for much of the Inaugural Parade -- from the Capitol to the White House -- but did opt to walk a few blocks of the route ... flanked by Secret Service.

Once outside their new home, they kicked back to view the rest of the show. Considering the violence that went on in Washington, D.C. today ... the parade was pretty damn smooth.

Donald Trump Autographed Baseball Prices Skyrocket

1/20/2017 12:04 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-donald-trump-signed-baseball-tmz-sportsForget Bryce Harper and Mike Trout ... one of the most valuable autographs you can get on a baseball right now is Donald Trump

We spoke with multiple sports memorabilia experts who tell us the value of a Trump signed baseball used to be around $100 ($200 tops) ... now, it's worth around $1,000 depending on the quality of the signature. 

Both Brandon Steiner of Steiner Sports and Joe Coppola of Sports Integrity say the fact Trump is now president makes his autograph much more collectible ... and therefore valuable. 

"There's a big market for presidential collectibles," Steiner tells us. 

So, where does Trump's autograph rank among other presidents?

A Barack Obama ball sold for $1,485 in 2013 ... according to GoldinAuctions

They also sold a George H.W. Bush ball for $800. 

George W. Bush went for $787. 

Jimmy Carter fetched $674. 

Bill Clinton's ball went for $500. 

A Ronald Reagan ball got $3,300. 

And get this ... GoldinAuctions tells us a Hillary Clinton signed ball went for $3,062 back in August.

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

0120-new-potus-flotus-twitter

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.

Trump Protesters Clash Street Fight, Violence Breaking Out Near Inauguration

1/20/2017 8:02 AM PST
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.
