Donald Trump Inauguration T-Shirt Slinging, Joint Passing Could Fly ... Cops Have Bigger Fish To Fry

1/19/2017 11:03 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0119-trump-inauguration-weed-t-shirts-no-cops-fun-art-GETTY-TMZ-03People looking to make a quick buck hawking Donald Trump t-shirts or even those smoking weed at Friday's inauguration can rest easy, because there's a good chance D.C. cops will look past them.

Law enforcement sources tell us they have so many concerns before, during and after the inauguration -- primarily security and crowd control -- they are not going to sweat the small stuff.

We're told cops in the nation's Capital generally do crack down on people who hawk merchandise on the street without a permit and they will also usually cite weed smokers.  

The stakes for smoking weed in public are pretty high ... worst case scenario 2 months in jail. 

So, smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Breaking News

0119_Woody-Johnson_jets_uk_getty-2The guy who signed off on paying Ryan Fitzpatrick $12 MILLION to throw 17 interceptions will be named official U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom.

Officials say Donald Trump will announce NY Jets owner Woody Johnson will take the position. 

Johnson was also the vice chairman of the Trump Victory Committee and hosted a huge fundraiser for him in the Hamptons.

The Senate will have to confirm Johnson before the move is official ... but it's more of a formality at this point.

Woody's reportedly handing over day-to-day operations to his brother.

A$AP Ferg Remembering Yams ... With 65 Carats

1/19/2017 11:54 AM PST
Exclusive Details

A$AP Yams was immortalized this week in concert by the hip-hop community -- but he also lives on around the neck of A$AP Ferg ... diamond-studded and all.

Ferg was presented with a custom 14k white gold chain and piece featuring a new moniker for the late producer: Yamborghini. The piece is also laced with 65 carat diamonds ... meaning it'll burn your eyes out with its sparkle and shine.

The chain and piece was designed by jewelry company IF & Co., and took 1 month to design and make. We're told jeweler Ben Baller was personally responsible for overseeing its creation and transfer to Ferg for Wednesday night's Yams Day 2017 concert. 

Yams died 2 years ago on January 18 due to a drug overdose.

No doubt about it now -- Yams' legacy will never fade ... diamonds are forever, after all.

President Obama Flash Mob To Say Goodbye

1/19/2017 10:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0119-barack-obama-white-house-02A group of Obama supporters are quietly organizing a flash mob to appear at the White House at 3 PM ET and just cheer and applaud as loud as possible.

We're told the president is in the White House and the goal is for him to hear the crowd and somehow acknowledge them.

It's not beyond hope the prez will come out and at least wave to the crowd. Last week, he spontaneously left the West Wing and walked on Pennsylvania Ave. to a meeting.

We'll show you when it happens.

They've got a busy day ahead -- the traditional wreath-laying ceremony and then the Make America Great Again Welcome Concert.

'A Dog's Purpose' Actor, Director Shaken Over Terrified Dog Video

1/19/2017 5:53 AM PST

The actor who voices the German Shepherd shown in the extremely disturbing video posted by TMZ says he's "shaken and sad" ... and the director echoed the sentiment.

Josh Gad, who appears in the upcoming film as the voice of the dog, says he's seen the video, which he describes as "a scared German Shepard being forced to perform a stunt." He says he doesn't have the full context, but adds, "I am shaken and sad to see any animal put in a situation against its will."

Gad is calling for "an explanation," and so is director Lasse Hallstrom, who says "I have been promised that a thorough investigation into this situation is underway and that any wrongdoing will be reported and punished."

Towanda Braxton Nothing Smells Better Than Obama

1/19/2017 8:27 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michelle Obama might want to keep an eye on Towanda Braxton, who proved her love for President Obama goes soooo much deeper than politics -- for her, it's a smell thing. 

We got Towanda at LAX Wednesday and asked her about Obama commuting Chelsea Manning's sentence, which somehow turned into her gushing about the scent of the prez ... and touching herself.

You gotta watch, it's hilarious. For her it was like there's no one else in the room as she lost herself in Eau de Barack.

Breathe deep, Towanda.

Lisa Vanderpump Torn About Promoting 'A Dog's Purpose' ... But Has a Solution

1/19/2017 8:46 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump's excitement about promoting "A Dog's Purpose" was crushed when she saw the disturbing video of a terrified German Shepherd on the movie's set.

We caught Lisa in Bev Hills, hours after TMZ first posted the footage of Hercules ... one of the dogs starring in the upcoming movie. She was clearly heartsick over what she saw -- particularly because of her commercial for the flick, and her extensive work with the Vanderpump Dog Foundation.

Sources close to the network tell TMZ ... Bravo honchos are mulling over whether to pull the ad Lisa shot, but regardless of what they do -- she's made a decision about the payday she got for doing it.

The Weeknd & Bella Hadid Exes Call Truce To Honor A$AP Yams

1/19/2017 7:32 AM PST

It's the awkward moment ya just knew was going to happen -- The Weeknd and Bella Hadid in the same room again.

The former couple hit up Madison Square Garden and both were onstage for Yams Day to honor the late music exec and rapper A$AP Yams ... who died 2 years ago Wednesday.

Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, French Montana, and Kendall Jenner were also there -- and this is really a case of squads colliding. Bella and Kendall are pals with Rocky ... so they were most likely there to support him.

No word if Weeknd and Bella ever came face-to-face, but it seems inevitable.

At least Selena wasn't there.

We got Tyler leaving Catch Wednesday and he said he actually has hope for Trump, but lays everything at DT's doorstep, saying he must change his priorities.

And, since actors and others in entertainment have won top offices in the past, he says he's game too, but only if he shares the ticket with Michelle Obama.

UF Bass Fishing Team EJECTED FROM BOAT ... Crazy, Crazy, Video

1/19/2017 7:27 AM PST

Here's the most incredible video you'll see today ... the University of Florida Bass fishing team (we didn't know either) EJECTED FROM A SPEEDING MOTORBOAT at 57 mph. 

The guys in the boat -- Hunter Bland and Conner Young -- were cruising along as usual when the steering system on their boat malfunctioned ... sending the men flying into the water. 

Fortunately, the guys were wearing life jackets and kill switches -- which stopped the boat dead in its tracks. 

You can see in the video the men are shaken up but not badly injured. One guy says, "I just need to breathe for a second."

We've reached out to the guys for more on this ... it's a fisherman's story actually worth hearing.
