Donald Trump I'm Buyin' Something New To Keep 'Keep America Great!'

1/23/2017 9:44 AM PST

0123-donald-trump-tmzDonald Trump is ever the businessman, trying to own the slogan that got him elected, with a few changes.

Trump filed legal docs 2 days before he was inaugurated president, asking to trademark the phrase, "Keep America Great!"

The application seeks to corner the market on bumper stickers, shirts, posters, buttons and, of course, caps and hats ... all bearing the slogan.

Trump announced last week "Keep America Great" will be his slogan for the 2020 re-election campaign.

Trump actually bought the slogan "Make America Great Again" back in 2015 from a DJ who owned the trademark.

'Hollyweed' Sign Guy Hits Golden Gate ... Claims Trump Protest Banner

1/23/2017 11:13 AM PST

0123-impeach-trump-bridge-sign-hollyweed-prankster-TMZ-02The "Hollyweed" sign prankster struck again -- this time on San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge with a huge anti-Trump sign. 

Zach Fernandez, aka "Jesushands," is claiming responsibility for climbing the iconic bridge late Saturday night and hanging a 40 foot banner that read "Impeach." Hard to see, but there was also a smaller "You're Fired" at the bottom of it.

In case you're wondering ... the Golden Gate bridge is 220 feet above the Bay.

Zach's rep, Eli Graham, tells us Zach hopped a railing, and crept along an exterior walkway to fly the banner. It was pulled down Sunday and California Highway Patrol is investigating.

Zach was arrested for misdemeanor trespassing after turning himself in for the "Hollyweed" prank. He could be facing another misdemeanor for the Bridge stunt.

We spoke with several parents whose kids attend the school, and they said they too were unaware the school was closed. One parent told us he got his kids dressed for school today, only to find out the doors were closed.

Liam Payne Close Call at Club ... Shots Fired

1/23/2017 7:00 AM PST

0123-Liam-Payne-akmLiam Payne dodged a bullet this weekend when shots rang out at a club popular among celebs.

Liam was at The Peppermint Club in WeHo Saturday night when a guy showed up and tried to get in with a fake ID. He got into it with security, made his way to the parking lot and fired shots in the air just outside the club. The guy escaped and is still on the loose.

We're told clubgoers inside heard the shots and freaked out. They stayed put and began tweeting like crazy. One woman tweeted, "Shooting @ the peppermint club. I'm f***ing shaking right now."

Cops found multiple shell casings when they arrived. As for Liam, we're told he left about half an hour after the shots rang out. Probably not his best night ever.

Kim Kardashian I've Got A Plan ... My Kimojis Are Gonna Take Over The Retail World

1/23/2017 12:50 AM PST

1120_kimoji_store_compositeKim Kardashian wants to bring her Kimoji gear to stores ... and pretty soon we could see shops all across the world. 

Kim's company filed docs asking to expand her famous Kimoji brand to include retail stores that would sell apparel, makeup bags, stickers, jewelry, accessories and a slew of other items. 

Sources close to Kim tell us plans are in the early stages, but there's a good chance Kim's plan will include global pop-up shops to hawk the gear ... just like hubby Kanye did for his Yeezy clothing line and little sis Kylie has for her makeup line.

The Kimoji brand has been insanely successful, but the gear has only been limited to online sales ... so Kim's looking to take on the retail world too.

Blank has a history of dancing after big wins -- he cut a rug in the locker room after the team beat the Seahawks last week. 

Wonder what he's got in store if they beat the Pats?!

'A Dog's Purpose' Picketed by PETA We Will Shame the Audience

1/23/2017 1:00 AM PST

0123-dogs-purpose-peta-protests-TMZ-GETTY-01People who want to see "A Dog's Purpose" will be greeted by animal rights activists and taunted if they buy tickets and enter the theater.

PETA organizers tell TMZ they have plans to hit theaters across the country ... protesting the treatment of the animal actors in the flick. As you know, the controversy erupted after TMZ posted video of a German Shepherd in distress when a handler tried to pull the canine into the water.

The studio says the dog was treated humanely throughout the filming and the 40 second incident was harmless ... the dog was willing to go in the water but got freaked out because producers changed the point of entry.

We're told the picketers will be reminiscent of striking union workers, protesting scabs who attempt to cross the picket line.

The studio already canceled the Hollywood premiere and press junkets for fear of violence by animal rights groups.

The movie opens Friday.
