President Trump Gets Boos, 'Vote Him Out' Chants ... As He Visits RBG's Casket

THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN

President Trump is getting blatantly, and loudly, disrespected for his attempt to pay his respects to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ... and the chants he heard have a familiar ring.

First Lady Melania Trump and the President -- who was actually wearing a face mask -- went to the Supreme Court Thursday morning during the public viewing of flag-draped RBG's casket. Moments after the crowd of mourners saw him, a chorus of boos rained down on Trump.

Then came the repeated chant of "Vote him out!!!" In what Trump's opponents would call poetic justice ... the chant was done to the same cadence of the "lock her up" chants Trump himself has encouraged for years about Hillary Clinton.

The president didn't visibly react to the crowd's vitriol ... but there's no doubt he heard it, and he couldn't be too shocked.

Remember, POTUS has claimed RBG's reported dying wish -- to have her successor picked by whoever wins the presidential election -- was not real, and just propaganda created by the Democrats. BTW, Trump's said he'll nominate RBG's successor on Saturday.

So, yeah ... he had to know the boos would be coming.

Breonna Taylor Protests Truck Plows Through Crowd ... Cops Shot and Attacked

Protests are erupting after the grand jury's decision not to charge the cops who fatally shot Breonna Taylor, and while most were peaceful ... there were also violent and disturbing incidents in several cities.

A pickup truck accelerated and plowed through a group of protesters marching in Buffalo Wednesday night, injuring at least one person who was on a bicycle. Officials reported that person was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and the truck driver is reportedly in custody.

Elsewhere in Seattle, 13 people were arrested as protests turned violent ... and one cop was brutally struck with a baseball bat in the back of his head.

STRUCK FROM BEHIND

The officer was on a bike when he lost balance and fell, and after someone threw a cone at him ... he shot pepper spray to keep the crowd at bay. That's when someone ambushed him from behind and cracked his helmet with a full swing of a metal bat.

Seattle police say the cop was one of multiple officers injured in the chaos, and they're still searching for the bat-wielding suspect.

SHOTS FIRED
Louisville Metro Police Department

Finally, in Louisville, 2 officers were shot and wounded amid the Breonna protests. The Interim Police Chief says a suspect's in custody and both officers are expected to recover ... though one had to undergo surgery.

As we reported ... only one of the cops involved in the raid that led to Breonna Taylor's killing -- fired officer Brett Hankison -- is being charged for the incident. He's facing 3 counts of wanton endangerment for shooting into the apartment next to Taylor’s. No one is charged for shooting and killing Breonna.

Marriage Proposal Fail Brooklyn Bridge is a Hit ... For Cyclist & Photog!!!

INCOMING!!!
@danamaiaa/Instagram

A romantic proposal on the Brooklyn Bridge turned into a slapstick rom-com scene when the guy photographing the moment got CREAMED by an out-of-control biker!!!

Chris Vigo from the Bronx got on bended knee to pop the question to Angelica Rivera ... and enlisted his pal, Josh, to snap some photos of the special moment.

As Chris gets his bearings you see bicycles whiz by. There are more bikes than ever in NYC, because lots of people are scared to ride the subway because of rona.

As Josh gets in position to capture the "will you" and the [hopefully] "yes, yes I will!!" ... a shirtless cyclist careens into him as both guys go down hard.

Everyone was okay, and props to Chris for not even letting go of his lady's hand. He says not to worry -- they'll edit the crash out of the video -- but, hey, that's what makes it special and over time they will love it, right?

BTW -- Chris' lady is now his fiancee ... so yes, she said yes.

Kodak Black Please Trump, Let Me Outta Prison!!!

Exclusive

Kodak Black is turning to Donald Trump for help ... he's begging the President to commute his prison sentence.

The rapper's attorneys, Bradford Cohen and Jonathan Schwartz, sent a petition to Trump, obtained by TMZ, asking the Prez to cut Kodak a break.

Kodak's camp has lots of reasons why Trump should commute his sentence ... Cohen points out Kodak was sentenced to 46 months behind bars in his federal gun case, and claims the average sentence for the same crime is 18 months.

As you know, Kodak's locked up in a maximum-security federal prison in Kentucky, but Cohen says it's not warranted ... he claims the Bureau of Prisons "erroneously" viewed Kodak as level 4 criminal history, paving the way for Kodak to be housed in a maximum-security facility. Cohen claims the judge only put Kodak at a level 2, which means he could be housed at a lower security prison.

Kodak's attorney's also argue he's being unfairly punished for assaulting a prison guard in Miami ... repeating their earlier claim that Kodak was set up and possibly drugged.

KB's legal team also claims he was punished twice for the incident with the guard in Miami ... Cohen says Kodak was only supposed to get a 6-month sentence, but instead ended up with year-long punishment, which has kept him in total lockdown since last September, resulting in no phone calls or visits from anyone but his attorneys.

Trump's also being asked to consider abuse Kodak's allegedly suffering in prison -- beatings at the hands of guards, religious suppression and mental abuse.

As we first told you ... Kodak's suing the Federal Bureau of Prisons for alleged torture and denial of access to a rabbi, which his attorney's claim is a violation of his constitutional rights.

Kodak's also hoping his good deeds go a long way toward swaying Trump ... Cohen cites the hundreds of thousands of dollars he's donated to charities over the years, including playing Santa, gift cards at Christmas, donations to underprivileged youth, helping folks in his neighborhood and paying for children's education.

It seems like a long shot, but there's this ... Cohen may have an in with Trump.

Kodak's attorney was a contestant on "The Apprentice" way back in 2005 and got fired. He also represented Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, in his 2016 case.

Maskless Woman Tased, Busted at Football Game ... Cops Say Arrest is NOT About Mask

8:46 AM PT -- According to Logan PD, a cop was assigned to the game to ensure the safety of fans … including the enforcement of CDC and state rules and guidelines mandating fans wear masks while on school property.

But, when the cop approached the woman and told her she needed to wear her mask, cops say she told the cop she had asthma and continually refused to wear her mask.

The cop told the woman she would have to leave and wait outside the stadium but she refused … leading to being tased once and her arrest for criminal trespassing. The woman’s been identified as Alicia Kitts. She was charged with criminal trespassing and released at the scene. Additional charges are pending on Kitts and another female subject involved in the incident.

Cops want to make it crystal clear — she was NOT arrested for failing to wear a mask. She was asked to leave the premises for violating school policy … and once she refused to leave she was placed under arrest for criminal trespassing. They add Kitts resisting arrest led to the use of force. The incident remains under investigation.

A woman who refused to wear a mask at an 8th-grade football game refused to go quietly -- she fought off a cop, got tased and ultimately ... arrested.

The incident went down at a middle school in Logan, Ohio where fans in the stands, including one who was recording, were shocked as a police officer tried for minutes to arrest the anti-masker. You can hear the woman yelling, "This is bulls***" and "You're not arresting me for nothing. I ain't doing nothing wrong."

Check out the video ... when the woman -- who appeared to have a mask in her back pocket -- kept resisting, the cop tased her in the back ... and finally got handcuffs on her to haul her away.

Some of the other fans were pissed, and voiced their disapproval for the arrest "over not wearing a damn mask." The issue, legally speaking, is ... Ohio has a statewide mask mandate, and that's one of the rules that's allowed organized sports to resume there.

The school's athletic director told the Marietta Times the school hosted 300 fans for the game Wednesday and the only individuals having issues with compliance were the woman who got arrested and her mother.

Delonte West Disturbing Photo Surfaces NBA, Doc Rivers Trying To Help

Exclusive

The NBA, Doc Rivers, Jameer Nelson and the Players Association have actively been trying to get Delonte West help ... this after a new photo surfaced showing the former star hooper in rough shape.

The viral photo -- reportedly taken recently in Dallas -- appears to show the 37-year-old former guard begging for money on the street.

The question has been ... why haven't former players and coaches stepped in and helped West?

As it turns out, TMZ Sports has learned, they've been trying for months.

Multiple sources tell us that the league, NBPA, and Delonte's former coach, Doc Rivers, and former St. Joe's college teammate, Jameer Nelson, and others have attempted to get DW much needed assistance.

FYI, West was the 24th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. He played 8 NBA seasons for the SuperSonics, Mavs, Cavs and Celtics ... where he played for Rivers.

West's struggles have been well-documented ... and this isn't the first time photo or video has surfaced that has caused serious concern about West's well-being.

Back in 2016, a fan spotted Delonte outside a Jack In The Box ... and asked him if he was the former NBA star.

West responded ... "I'm not about that life anymore."

Most recently in January 2020, Delonte was captured on video involved in a street fight.

The bottom line is there are people who are desperate to help Delonte ... but he's gotta be willing to accept it.

It wasn't until an appearance on Jimmy Fallon when Hadid finally fessed up.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Plane Crash Photos ... Show NASCAR Legend Truly Lucky To Be Alive

Federal investigators have released close-up photos of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s plane after it crashed in 2019 ... and it's clear as day, the NASCAR legend is fortunate to be alive.

Dale's jet smashed down on an Elizabethton, TN. airport runway on Aug. 15, 2019 ... and it skidded off through some fencing and came to rest along a local highway.

Junior, his wife, daughter, dog and the two pilots on board were all able to escape the wreckage relatively unscathed ... but in photos of the crash, released by the NTSB on Wednesday, you can see that's miraculous.

The pics show the plane ended up being burnt to ashes ... and in one of the photos, you can see just how far it skidded from its initial landing point to its final resting stop.

Other photos show how parts broke off the plane as it slammed to the ground ... with some wheels and other pieces yards away from the main body.

The NTSB says in its final report the cause of the crash was pilot error ... with investigators writing they believe the plane was coming in too fast to land safely.

In the report, officials say the pilots also didn't brake properly given how fast the plane was traveling into the runway ... and that all led to the violent crash.

Dale Jr. says he suffered a bruised back in the landing ... but otherwise, he and his family had no issues post-wreck.

Lucky, man.

'Cheer' Star Jerry Harris No More Mat Talks ... Cameo Page On Pause

Exclusive

Jerry Harris is no longer giving mat talks to paying customers ... his extremely popular Cameo page has been put on pause following his arrest for child pornography.

The star of Netflix's uber-popular cheerleading show "Cheer" used to charge folks up to $150-a-pop for personalized videos, usually in the form of the mat talks that made him a fan favorite on the show, but now one of his cash cows is out to pasture.

Instead of being able to pay for messages from Jerry, his Cameo page is now just his bio and a button that says, "Notify me when Jerry Harris is available."

As you know, Jerry's got serious legal issues at the moment ... he was arrested last week in Illinois and hit with a charge of production of child pornography. He's also being sued for sex abuse of minors.

It's unclear if and when Jerry's Cameo page will return, or if it will be deleted from the site ... we reached out to Cameo, but the company would not offer comment.

For now, it's a huge blow for Jerry and Cameo's bottom lines ... when his page first launched, the first month he was reportedly fulfilling tens of thousands of requests.

Al Sharpton Show Disgust Over Breonna's Case ... At the Polls, Not with Violence!!!

Exclusive
fight smart
TMZ.com

Rev. Al Sharpton is disgusted like many over the grand jury indictment in Breonna Taylor's case ... but he wants people to take their rage out by voting instead of turning violent.

We got Sharpton Wednesday in NYC, and he was still fuming after the grand jury did NOT indict any of the officers for shooting and killing Breonna. He's not giving up the fight to get justice for Breonna, though, and explains why he thinks a Joe Biden victory over President Trump could help.

Watch the video ... Reverend Al lays out a theory involving Attorney General William Barr, and the Justice Department's investigation into Breonna's killing. He suggests there's only one way to get a thorough investigation.

As a result, Sharpton's imploring people to hit the polls instead of resorting to violence in the streets. Louisville declared a State of Emergency ahead of the indictment announcement, bracing for potential rioting. Sharpton says rioting won't get the message across to leaders like the President, Kentucky's Senator Mitch McConnell and its AG Daniel Cameron ... only poll results will.

As we reported, now-fired cop Brett Hankison was the only officer charged -- with wanton endangerment -- but he was NOT charged for shooting Breonna. Instead, he was charged with shooting into Breonna's neighbor's apartment. The other 2 officers who did fire shots in Breonna's apartment, killing her, were NOT charged.

When Kentucky's Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced the grand jury indictment, Sharpton says he was disgusted ... but sadly not surprised.

Austin Mahone Wants to Join Kanye's Fight ... Help Artists Get Their Masters

Exclusive
THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH

Kanye West's on a noble crusade to help musicians gain control of their livelihood ... according to Austin Mahone, who has experience with the process and wants to lend a helping hand.

The singer's backstory seems the perfect example of what Kanye's been tweeting about for more than a week now ... he says he can attest to the importance of what Ye's doing to keep others from getting screwed.

Austin tells us ... he's one of the countless musicians who signed with a record label when he was breaking into the industry, and in turn, signed over the rights to his masters.

The singer signed with Birdman's Cash Money Records when he was 15, but we're told after he had a convo with his manager, Michael Blumstein, and his mentor, Pitbull, a few years later ... he realized it was so important to own his work.

Of course, it wasn't that simple, but he was one of the lucky ones ... thanks to a million-dollar loan from Pitbull and Birdman. We're told Austin's catalog has now earned him more than $5 mil, and as he says himself ... owning his masters will allow him to make cash for life.

As we've reported ... this is what Kanye is very publicly demanding for himself and his peers in the industry -- even Taylor Swift -- and has vowed to go to war with Universal and Sony to make it happen.

Sources close to Austin tell us ... he's reached out to Kanye and his team and wants in on the movement. We're told he wants to offer his story as a testimonial of the benefits of going independent and be involved in helping others with the whole process.

Our sources say he hasn't heard back yet ... but he's motivated and ready to do a master-ful battle with Kanye.

President Trump Sexist Dig at Meghan Markle ... Wishes Harry Good Luck

NOT A FAN

President Trump resorted to one of his favorite pastimes -- insulting women -- making a sexist comment about Meghan Markle ... all because she dared to encourage Americans to vote.

Meghan and Prince Harry have not officially endorsed any political candidates ... but the couple recently entered the convo by urging folks to cast their vote in November, which the Duchess of Sussex calls ... "the most important election of our lifetime."

Trump was asked about this at his Wednesday press briefing by a reporter who framed it as Meghan's words being an endorsement of Joe Biden ... and he did not respond kindly.

The Prez said, "I'm not a fan of hers," adding, "I wish a lot of luck to Harry, 'cause he's gonna need it."

By the way, if you're wondering why most people presume the Duke and Duchess are anti-Trump, Harry said ... "As we approach this November, it's vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity."
