Trump Supporter White Power Hand Symbol at Rally??

NOT OK
C-SPAN

President Trump's got himself a costar at his latest rally in Florida -- one of his supporters who can't stop flashing what looks like the white power hand symbol in clear view of cameras.

Look closely at the video from Trump's Friday rally at The Villages in Central FL ... the man seated in the crowd over the President's left shoulder repeatedly made the 'ok' symbol ... commonly associated now with the white power movement.

What's more ... the guy flashing it is also wearing a black hat with yellow print, which some folks are claiming matches the logo for the Proud Boys.

STAND BY
FOX News

As you know ... Trump refused to condemn white supremacy during the first Presidential debate, and instead told the alt-right group Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by."

The guy positioned behind the President certainly wasn't shy about using the hand symbol as he raised it almost every time there was an ovation. POTUS never acknowledged him, and it's possible he never saw the gesture being made.

Still, 11 days before Election Day ... it's an ominous sight.

Arnold Schwarzenegger I Had Another Heart Surgery ... And I'm Already BACK!!!

Arnold Schwarzenegger might really be a Terminator -- he just had another piece of his heart replaced, and yet he says he's feeling good enough to take his new parts out for a stroll.

Arnold just made the surprise revelation about the surgery -- coming after the procedure he had 2 years ago. He said he now has a "new aortic valve to go along with my new pulmonary valve from my last surgery."

He got it done at the renowned Cleveland Clinic, and posted some pics from his hospital bed. He didn't say exactly when the procedure was done, but added ... he's been out and about, feeling "fantastic" on the streets of the Land.

Arnold thanked everyone at the hospital who worked on him, and it sounds like they deserve it. The 73-year-old guy's checking out statues around the city like a tourist, instead of heart surgery patient.

We broke the story ... the former California governor had emergency heart surgery in March 2018, and he later revealed it left him fighting for his life.

He recounted the experience in an awesome commencement speech earlier this year in a message to graduates encouraging them to have a vision with their lives.

It's worth another watch if you've got the time.

Antonio Brown 'Very Close' to Signing with Bucs ... Reuniting w/ Tom Brady

Breaking News

AB to TB ... with TB.

OMFG.

Yeah, Antonio Brown is flying to Tampa Bay tonight -- where he's expected to sign with the Bucs and reunite with Tom Brady.

That's the plan according to NFL Network's Ian Rapaport who says the Bucs have been "quietly working on a deal with WR Antonio Brown and it’s now 'very close.'"

Rap adds, "Tom Brady has been pushing for this for some time. Now looks to be happening. Brown is on his way to TB."

As we previously reported, AB is still serving his 8-game suspension stemming from some major off-the-field issues ... including an arrest for allegedly attacking a moving truck driver.

He was also investigated over allegations he raped his former trainer -- and sent menacing text messages to another woman after she had publicly accused him of sexual misconduct.

Brown will be eligible to play starting Week 9 -- and it seems the Bucs are ready to pull the trigger.

Rapoport says when he touches down in Tampa tonight, it will start Day 1 of the COVID protocol. He's expected to sign his deal by the beginning of next week, which would allow him to play Week 9.

Rap also says Tom Brady has been a major force in bringing AB to TB -- remember, they got along pretty well during Brown's short stint in New England last season.

As for the contract, Rap says, "Brown is a two-month rental and the belief is it’s a 1-year deal with significant upside for Brown."

Brown has burned major bridges with several NFL teams including the Raiders, Steelers and Patriots.

Will he be able to keep his nose clean in Tampa Bay?

Seems the Bucs are willing to roll the dice ...

The Seattle Seahawks had expressed interest -- and Russell Wilson publicly supported AB -- but it seems Brown would rather play with TB12.

Dr. Anthony Fauci My Access to Trump is Nil These Days ... Despite His Claim We're Still Friendly

TRUMP'S AWOL
MSNBC

President Trump's talking like he and Dr. Anthony Fauci are still on friendly terms -- despite each jabbing the other lately -- but that's news to Fauci, who says he has zero access to the Oval Office.

Dr. Fauci essentially said he's been bumped, telling NBC's Chuck Todd he no longer has the President's ear -- even though the coronavirus pandemic is ramping up again over most of the country.

The good doc says Trump is now listening more to Scott Atlas, the neuroradiologist and conservative think tank member the President added to the task force this summer.

Unlike what we've heard in recent weeks, Fauci did NOT take a shot at Trump for the shift -- watch, he says it more matter-of-factly -- but instead, he's still sharing his knowledge with Vice President Mike Pence and the rest of the Coronavirus Task Force.

He added, Pence relays information to Trump, who hasn't attended a task force meeting in several months. Worth noting ... the country reported at least 75,049 new COVID cases Thursday, the second-highest daily total since the pandemic started.

Great time for a game of telephone.

Sacha Baron Cohen 'Borat' Daughter Got into White House!!! Also Got Close to Trumps at Fundraiser

White House security is looking pretty lax in new video showing Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Borat' costar easily gaining access and coming within feet of President Trump.

The footage is of Maria Bakalova -- who plays Borat's daughter in the newly released sequel -- and shows her getting a tour of the White House press briefing room by OANN reporter Chanel Rion. It appears Rion, a regular member of the WH Press Corps, and her outlet were duped last month into getting Maria onto the White House grounds somehow.

There's also footage of Maria within feet of POTUS at a reception for Trump supporters back in February in Phoenix -- and there she's seen shaking Donald Trump Jr.'s hand. She was blonde at that time.

PRETTY CLEAR TO US
ABC

BTW ... Maria gaining access into the White House is NOT in the newly-released film, but it calls into serious question the security measures in place at 1600 Penn. Sacha claims Maria wasn't checked for a credential, nor did she have a COVID-19 test.

Her White House visit came 2 months after her infamous encounter with Rudy Giuliani, who was filmed/entrapped in a hotel room scene ... which is in the movie.

Jennifer Aniston Don't Vote Kanye ... Not Funny Or Responsible!!!

Jennifer Aniston isn't laughing with the folks voting for Kanye West ... she says a vote for Yeezy is flat out irresponsible.

The actress says she just dropped her ballot off and her early vote is for the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris ticket ... adding there's nothing cool about voting for Kanye.

Jen explains her vote like this ... "a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science... too many people have died."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

She's urging voters to consider the implications in the election ... suggesting if Donald Trump wins re-election, it will hurt our nation's daughters, minority groups, elderly folks with illnesses and on and on.

Jen says the future of our country and the world is on the ballot and the election is all about voting for equal human rights, love and decency.

Lots of folks consider a vote for Kanye a vote for Trump, and Jen says ... "It's not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible 🙏🏼"

Kim Jong-un Wife's Been M.I.A. for 9 Months ... It's a Mystery!!!

Breaking News

Sure, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is alive and well, but the same can't be said right now for his wife ... who hasn't been seen in public since January.

Ri Sol-ju was last with Kim for a public event at the Samjiyon Theatre in Pyongyang during a Lunar New Year celebration, but after she missed a military parade she usually attends on October 10 ... speculation's swirling about why, and where in the hell she is now.

Along with the darkest guess that immediately comes to mind, there are 3 main theories that are less disturbing -- but also maybe less believable.

One is that she's taking care of Kim's aunt who is ill. Another, from experts in South Korea, is that she's afraid of getting sick herself amid the COVID-19 pandemic due to lack of social distancing and masks at events.

And finally, there are reports she stepped out of the public eye to take care of her daughter, who's believed to have been born in 2013.

It should be noted -- about a year ago there was similar concern for Ri after she wasn't seen in public for 4 months, but then she was ... and people speculated she may have given birth.

Of course, it's hard to know what to believe when it comes to North Korea ... as we learned this past summer about her husband.

JetBlue Bans Passenger Who Repeatedly Hurled N-Words

RUNWAY RACIST
@KING__MEKA Twitter/Junior Campbell Facebook

2:11 PM PT -- A spokesperson for JetBlue tells TMZ ... the airline has banned the passenger following his racist tirade. The spokesperson said, "We have zero tolerance for racism or harassment, and after reviewing this customer’s abhorrent racist behavior, we have determined he is no longer welcome to fly JetBlue."

JetBlue also thanked the crew members for taking swift action.

A JetBlue flight got turbulent before it even took off, as a man went on a racist tirade -- while wearing a Burger King crown -- and then got tossed off the flight.

The wild scene played out earlier this week in Jamaica, as the flight was preparing to depart from Kingston to JFK Airport. According to reports ... the man initially got aggravated when he was told there was no more overhead space for his bag, and began cussing loudly as he walked to his seat.

Then he got into it with a nearby female passenger over seating assignments and then ... total bedlam. In the video, he's loudly accusing the woman of assaulting him, but he's repeatedly hurling the n-word and expletives while he does it.

The disgusting rant went on so long, other passengers got enraged ... and it escalated to violence. While he was being held back by several flight attendants, a male passenger charges and throws a punch. He wasn't alone, as other passengers took physical shots at him during the chaos.

Eventually, Kingston police officers escorted the guy off the plane in handcuffs. It's unclear if he, or any other passenger, was charged with a crime.

We've reached out to JetBlue and Kingston PD, but no word back yet.

Colin Kaepernick Tapped for Univ. of Nevada Hall of Fame ... Class of 2020

Breaking News

Colin Kaepernick has been selected for the University of Nevada Athletics Hall of Fame, the school announced.

Kaepernick played for the Wolf Pack from 2006 to 2010 -- racking up more than 10,000 passing yards and 4,000 rushing yards during his college career.

He was also named was Offensive Player of the Year TWICE -- once in 2008 and again in 2010.

Kaepernick famously led the Wolf Pack to a 13-1 season in 2010 -- winning a WAC conference championship. The team also won the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl and finished as the #11 ranked team in the country on the AP poll.

Kaepernick will be inducted with 2 of his teammates -- running back Vai Taua and defensive end Dontay Moch.

"The 2020 Hall of Fame class represents some of the best of the best in Wolf Pack history," Nevada AD Doug Knuth said.

"This is an incredible collection of accomplished student-athletes and we can't wait for the opportunity to welcome them back to campus and celebrate their careers."

There's just one snag ... the school says there will be no official induction dinner held in the fall due to COVID-19.

School officials are hopeful to hold a celebration to honor Kap and company in the future.

Congrats!

Murder Hornets Nest Found In Washington ... Invading United States

THEY'RE HERE
WSDA

Asian murder hornets have made their way to Washington State ... authorities just found a nest, the first one discovered in the U.S., and now humans wanna kill the deadly insects ASAP!!!

The Washington State Dept. of Agriculture says they've located an Asian giant hornet nest on a private property in Blaine ... and as you can see, the murder hornets set up shop inside a tree.

The WSDA says they're gonna try and destroy the nest Saturday, after plans to wipe it out Friday were dashed due to inclement weather. It's 2020, did you really think murder hornets would go out that easy?!?

Entomologists from the WSDA found the nest after a trapper caught two live murder hornets Wednesday using a new type of trap. Two more hornets, also living, were found in another trap Thursday and entomologists attached radio trackers to the big buggers, which led them to the nest.

It's pretty scary ... the nest is inside a tree near an area cleared for a residential home, and authorities counted dozens of hornets entering and exiting the tree. These murder hornets usually nest in the ground, but sometimes they pick a dead tree for their home base.

As we've reported ... the WSDA has been on the hunt for murder hornet nests since the first insect was caught earlier this year, and authorities had to navigate a ton of false reports.

The hope here -- eradicating murder hornets before they decimate our bee population, not to mention any human casualties along the way.

Kinda makes ya wonder ... how many undiscovered nests are out there?!?

Zachery Ty Bryan APPEARS IN COURT Hit With 2 Felonies In Alleged Attack on GF

Exclusive
APPEARING IN COURT
KEZI

10:58 AM PT -- Zachery just went before a judge and his lawyer waived his formal arraignment.

The judge set future court dates for Nov. 20 and Nov. 30, telling Zachery he can appear remotely on the latter.

In the video, Zachery starts to ask the judge about the remote court hearings but the judge cuts him off and tells him to talk to his lawyer.

Seems Zachery's looking forward to the World Series matchup tonight, he came to court with his Los Angeles Dodgers cap.

Zachery Ty Bryan beat the hell out of his girlfriend over missing phone charging cables ... at least according to her, and prosecutors heard enough to charge him with felonies.

The 'Home Improvement' star was charged with strangulation and coercion -- both felonies -- plus 6 misdemeanors, for the alleged violence that went down last weekend in Eugene, Oregon. We now know her version of events and it is harrowing.

Zachery's girlfriend told cops he woke her up, pulled her out of bed by her hair and started beating her, all while shouting obscenities about missing cell phone chargers ... according to police documents.

She told cops Zachery had become physically abusive toward her in the last month, and it reached a head last Friday when he allegedly punched and slapped her in the head and face multiple times. She also claims he choked her to the point she thought she was going to suffocate, and put his knee into the back of her neck.

According to cops, the woman said she broke free and dialed 911, but he disconnected the line. She claims he was standing next to her when dispatchers called back.

When police arrived, an officer said he noticed blood, swelling and bruising on the alleged victim ... and the cop claims Zachery was evasive about what happened, other than accusing her of trying to take him down because he was breaking up with her.

As we reported ... Zachery's been released on bail, and he's barred from all contact with the alleged victim.

Wild Porsche Crash Driver Wrecks Taycan at 118 MPH ... Speed Test Gone Wrong!!!

PEDAL TO THE METAL

Divert your eyes, Porsche lovers -- this crash during a speed test of the new electric model is gonna hurt.

A man in Turkey got behind the wheel this month of a Porsche Taycan Turbo S -- it's an all-electric whip, so it's fast as hell, and he seemed so giddy about it he had a camera rolling. The speed test starts off just fine ... topping out around 120 mph ... but it had an ugly, dangerous ending.

Less than 20 seconds after hitting the throttle ... BOOM!!!

For some reason, the guy went hurtling into a roundabout and lost control. He was lucky enough to survive ... the Taycan was not as lucky. You can see significant damage to his ride and the concrete.

BTW, the Taycan starts around $185,000. Hope it was worth it, pal!!!

Melania to President Trump Let. Go. Of. My. Hand. She Seems Ticked in Post-Debate Vid

ALL HANDS OFF DECK
C-SPAN

Melania Trump apparently wasn't in the mood to get handsy with President Trump after the debate -- and the new debate is about whether she dissed him on camera.

The moment, as they walked off the stage Thursday night, was hardly subtle -- the candidates' spouses had joined them for the ol' smile and wave photo op. When the Prez and First Lady turned to walk away they were holding hands, but after a couple steps ... it looks like Melania yanked her left hand away from Trump.

POTUS had to settle for giving Melania a friendly pat on the back as she sped away from the scene. You might recall after the first debate ... Melania barely embraced her husband as Joe Biden got a warm hug from Dr. Jill.

It should also be noted ... Melania's known for putting POTUS in a no hand-holding zone, like back in 2017 after touching down in Israel. There was also that one time she tried avoiding holding his hand at a White House event in 2018 ... but she relented.

Hand-holding. It's not for every couple.

NYPD, LAPD Bracing For Election Day Protests, Riots

Exclusive

Cops in New York City and Los Angeles are worried about Election Day protests devolving into chaos ... even though police brass are saying the opposite.

Here's the deal ... NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan and John Miller, the head of intelligence and counterterrorism, are publicly stating there's no specific credible threats for Election Day, but they both say officers will be standing by and fully prepared to protect voters from any funny business.

However, we've learned cops are busy behind-the-scenes preparing for chaos ... in other words, violence and even riots.

A senior NYPD official with direct knowledge of the plan tells TMZ ... hundreds of cops from the reserve force will be primed and ready for possible riots and demonstrations.

We're told the NYPD is especially worried about the areas around Manhattan's Union Square and Flatiron District ... two places that saw riots and looting earlier this year, as well as Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza and Barclays Center.

If Donald Trump wins re-election, we're told the feeling among NYPD's rank and file is riots could occur because lots of folks hate Trump in NYC, his hometown.

We're also told rank and file cops fear Trump protests could start peacefully but spiral out of control when darkness falls, when riots usually pick up. We're told cops are preparing for such chaos with reserve forces.

If Joe Biden wins, we're told cops also think there could be trouble ... but not as bad as a Trump win. The big worry -- protests if Trump contests election results.

Police are preparing for similar scenarios across the country in Los Angeles.

LAPD sources tell TMZ ... cops are anticipating lots of Election Day demonstrations and they're afraid things could take a violent turn if Trump jumps to an early lead at the polls.

If Biden wins, we're told LAPD believes there could be issues but they're more worried about a Trump victory, which could bring more agitation and conflict among protestors.

Our sources tell us they're worried about a similar scene playing out to what we saw after the Lakers won the NBA title -- a peaceful gathering careening off the rails. As we reported ... there were 76 arrests outside Staples Center after the Lakers' clinch. It got ugly.

While we're told some cops are concerned about unrest on Election Day, our sources say LAPD will take swift action to thwart violence and lawlessness.

Sources say there will be a heavy police presence in L.A. a few days leading up to Election Day and about a week after ... reason being -- cops just don't know what's going to happen.

Par for the course in 2020.

LeBron James Klutch Dinner In Malibu With Anthony Davis & Rich Paul

Breaking News

LeBron James was back at Nobu in Malibu on Thursday night for a fancy dinner with Anthony Davis and their agent Rich Paul.

Normally, not that big of a deal for 2 teammates to dine with their agent -- but it seems like they're making a statement in the wake of some criticism about their professional relationship.

Earlier Thursday, an anonymous NBA agent went after LeBron and Rich Paul to The Athletic -- essentially saying that Paul is just a puppet for LeBron.

The agent essentially claims LeBron is running the show at the Klutch Sports Group and Paul is just doing his bidding -- which, if true, would be illegal in California since a player is not also allowed to represent talent.

Here's a quote from the article ...

"The worst thing that LeBron is doing is forcing this power with Rich Paul and what that is, in terms of, he’s a player, but he has prowess in the media space. His company Spring Hill, that’s awesome. Doing the movies and all of the projects. That’s so commendable. I love that. But now that they’ve jumped into the agent game, which the reality is, it’s illegal for a player, particularly if you’re in the state of California, to be licensed to represent talent."

The agent suggests several young players have been "seduced" by LeBron to sign with Klutch because they idolized him growing up ... only to end up signing bad deals.

But, neither Bron nor Anthony Davis or Paul seemed to be bothered by the criticism Thursday night -- rolling up to Nobu in fancy cars and enjoying a night at one of the hottest restaurants in town.

Nobu has been the go-to spot for the Lakers since they've been out of the bubble -- the team had a victory dinner there together last week to celebrate their championship.

Sacha Baron Cohen If Giuliani Thinks That's Okay ... What's He Doing with Other Reporters?!?

PRETTY CLEAR TO US
ABC

Sacha Baron Cohen says it's pretty clear to him what was on Rudy Giuliani's mind during his notorious scene in the 'Borat' sequel ... but urges everyone to judge for themselves.

Borat himself, along with Maria Bakalova -- who plays his daughter, Tutar, in "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" -- addressed Rudy's compromising appearance in the movie ... in which he puts a hand in his pants after being duped into a fake interview by Bakalova's character.

Giuliani denies any inappropriate behavior and claims he was simply tucking in his shirt after taking off recording equipment ... but Cohen calls BS.

The actor tells "Good Morning America" ... "If the president’s lawyer found what he did there appropriate behavior then heaven knows what he’s done with other female journalists in hotel rooms."

The movie was released Thursday night, so everyone can judge for themselves.

Bakalova says she's thankful Cohen busted in to save her when things started getting dicey, and he claims he was "quite concerned" during the scene ... and felt the need to protect her.
