Dabo Swinney and the Clemson gang are at 1600 Penn to celebrate their win over Alabama in the national championship … and we’ll be streaming the whole thing.
It’s the Tigers’ second trip to the White House in 3 years … but this time around, they’ll be served with the finest (and quickest) cuisine around!!
Donald Trump said earlier Monday he’s planning a smorgasbord of fast food for the champs … saying “I think we’re going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King with some pizza.”
BTW — the buffet looks to be shaping up well … and they’ve even included some healthy salad options!
Sarah Sanders explained the move for fast food, saying, “much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed, so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods.”
Check back when the stream kicks off at 3:30 PM PT.
President Trumpis congratulating the Clemson Tigers for winning the national championship … because he’s just announced that Dabo Swinney‘s football team will visit the White House next week, and it’s a big win for the Prez.
POTUS announced Friday he’s hosting the Tigers in our nation’s capital Monday, the second time in three years Clemson will visit 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Dabo’s squad also shook hands with Trump in June 2017 after winning it all.
I look forward to hosting, right out of the great State of South Carolina, the 2019 NCAA Football Champion Clemson Tigers at the White House on Monday, January 14th. What a game, what a coach, what a team!
Getting Clemson to the White House is huge for Trump. It’s no longer an automatic for major sports champions to visit the President.
Remember, team visits to the White House became routine in the 1980s … until the NBA champion Golden State Warriors started a trend last summer by making clear they wouldn’t visit Trump.
The Philadelphia Eagles threatened to boycott the White House after winning last year’s Super Bowl, and they never showed.
The Villanova Wildcats didn’t visit the White House after winning last year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Ditto for the NHL’s Washington Capitals.
Like Clemson, the World Series champion Boston Red Sox accepted Trump’s invitation, and pitcher Heath Hembree famously told us he f*cks with Trump. The Sox will visit sometime during the upcoming MLB season.
Justin and Hailey Bieberare still looking to become L.A. homeowners … because they just checked out a massive property that’s definitely large enough to start their new family.
The newlyweds were seen leaving this Encino mansion Tuesday afternoon, and it doesn’t look like a second straight day of house hunting is stressing them out.
Justin and Hailey checked out a sprawling estate in the Royal Oaks section of Encino … and the deets are pretty wild. It’s 12,500 square feet of luxury sitting at the end of a cul-de-sac, and the 10-bedroom, 11-bathroom home is being listed for a cool $ 13 million!
Yeah, that’s a hefty price tag … but JB is already renting a place in the valley for $ 100k/month, so he can definitely afford it.
Sounds like this new place has plenty of space for their furry new family addition to roam around.
The superstar couple looked over the moon Friday on their new balcony, as Kanye took a break from producing beats with Timbaland and Weezy to lock lips with wifey.
Our sources say Kanye and Kim plan to split their time between L.A. and Miami. The new South Beach pad is in a super exclusive building dubbed “Billionaire Beach Bunker” — so, that should effectively remove any potential sting from coast-to-coast travel.
Ilhan Omar — one of two Muslim women ever elected to Congress — made history Thursday when she wore her hijab on the House floor.
The Congresswoman from Minnesota was all smiles as she was sworn in on Capitol Hill … where she was surrounded by a throng of supporters, many of whom were also wearing hijabs. Omar’s no stranger to politics — she served in the state legislature before making her historic run for Congress.
Omar — the first Somali-American in Congress — has also never shied away from her religion in public. In fact, during her victory speech on Election night, she dropped the Arabic phrase, “alhamdulillah” … which means “all praise to God.”
The 37-year-old — who came from a refugee camp in Kenya some 23 years ago — ran on very progressive platforms … such as hiking the minimum wage, universal healthcare and free college tuition.
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib from Michigan — the other Muslim woman elected to Congress — got quite the reception Thursday on the steps to the Capitol.
Sandra Bullock‘s latest hit movie is racking up record-setting Netflix views, sparking tons of memes … and also turning a small California suburb into a tourist attraction.
Small spoiler alert … there’s a house in “Bird Box” where the film’s stars take refuge from an evil force. The exterior shots of the property — including the stone stairway entrance — were not shot on a studio back lot, but at a real home in Monrovia … about 20 miles Northeast of L.A.
The owner tells TMZ … a handful of visitors have been showing up to take photos at the house every day — including Christmas Day — since the movie was released on December 13.
We’re told everyone who’s stopped by to snap a pic of the “Bird Box” house has been very polite, and some have even knocked on the door to ask for permission.
The owner says she got $ 12k for the exterior shots — and despite her house’s central role in the movie … she has no plans to watch “Bird Box.” She doesn’t have Netflix.
The Hollywood thing’s kinda old hat for her because she says her home’s been featured in at least 3 other films in the past 20 years, although she couldn’t remember specific titles.
We’re trying to research which ones but, honestly, some of us still have on blindfolds after watching the movie. We scare easy.
Danielle Staub‘s estranged husband Marty Caffrey is calling BS on her claims she was blindsided when he put their mansion up for sale … because he says he told her their home was hitting the market weeks in advance.
We got Marty out Friday in New York, and he’s pouring water all over Danielle’s claims she found out from a friend when he listed their NJ home for over $ 2 million.
As Marty puts it, there’s no sense in secretly listing their home when they’re still living there, because there’s no way he could hide that fact forever.
Marty and Danielle are in the middle of a messy divorce — only months after tying the knot back in May — and it’s interesting to hear Marty explain why their relationship started falling apart when Danielle began filming Season 9 of “Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
