Donald Trump in LA for Fundraiser and 2028 Olympics Talks

Published

on

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — President Trump might be going to bat for Bernie Sanders in public — but behind closed doors in L.A. … he mocked the Vermont Senator as a “crazy” socialist he can easily beat.

DT was in the City of Angels for what’s been reported as a series of fundraisers and talks about the 2028 Olympics, which are set to take place in L.A. After arriving in town, Trump held a private dinner for donors at the Montage hotel in Beverly Hills.

Eyewitnesses tell us about 300 people attended — folks like Lindsey Graham , Steve Wynn , Jared Kushner and other GOP bigwigs — and some of the food served included steak, fish, chicken, salad and dessert.

Anyway, we’re told by some present … the Prez took a decent amount of time to call out Sen. Sanders by name, calling him “Crazy Bernie” and even openly saying he hopes he wins the Democratic nomination, ’cause Trump professed he could beat in a general election.

What Mini Mike is doing is nothing less than a large scale illegal campaign contribution. He is “spreading” money all over the place, only to have recipients of his cash payments, many former opponents, happily joining or supporting his campaign. Isn’t that called a payoff? …..

…..Mini is illegally buying the Democrat Nomination. They are taking it away from Bernie again. Mini Mike, Major Party Nominations are not for sale! Good luck in the debate tomorrow night and remember, no standing on boxes!

That’s interesting, of course, because 45 has been tweeting about Bernie a lot lately — suggesting the DNC is trying to “steal” the nomination from him like in 2016. Turns out, it appears it’s because Trump really, REALLY thinks Bernie’s a tire fire candidate.

We’re told he kept the topic going, joking Bernie wants to give free education and stuff to everyone … wondering if a Harvard education and Rolls-Royce cars were in store for “illegals” under his vision. Funny enough, Bernie was asked about Trump’s support the same night.

“That’s not how I would interpret it,” Sen. Sanders says, rejecting the idea that Trump tweets about him so frequently because the President wants to face him in November. “I think Trump understands that we have something that other candidates don’t.”

BTW, Hillary and Mike Bloomberg were also mentioned during this get-together. Go figure.

On the HC front, Trump just said he’d only spent about 25% of what she did in 2016, and still beat her. For Mike — whom he’s been mercilessly mocking on Twitter — DT didn’t spend a lot of time on him … just mentioning the guy’s wealth and how much he’s spending to try to beat him.

Bloomberg has already spent hundreds of millions on ads — the guy’s worth upwards of $60 billion. Other topics covered at the dinner — terrorism, anecdotes from 2016, etc.

BTW, some reports say some of the top-ticket fundraising items at these fundraisers Trump’s got scheduled this week are going for anywhere from $100k to $250k for photo-ops and rounds of golf with the President. Unclear how much he might’ve hauled in on Tuesday.

Bethenny Frankel to Deliver Half-a-Million Masks in Wake of Coronavirus

Published

By

(TMZ) — Bethenny Frankel is about to deliver half-a-million masks to doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who are at high risk for contracting coronavirus, and the decks have just been cleared to deliver them quickly.

FEMA has told hospital workers they can get masks outside normal channels and get reimbursement because the supply is so critically lacking.

Bethenny tells TMZ, she’s getting thousands of messages a day from medical professionals — many in New York but also other areas of the country — begging for help.

Bethenny is working with manufacturers from all over the world to make masks, and the number she’s making has ballooned from 10,000 to 500,000 N-95 masks and counting.

She says the masks will be available in a few and they will go directly to the people who need it, because the red tape is being eliminated.

Katy Perry Shows Baby Bump During Grocery Run with Orlando Bloom

Published

By

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are on the hunt for supermarket supplies — just like most of us adjusting to life in a pandemic — but the expectant parents look super comfy doing it.

Orlando and his pregnant, pop singer fiancee hit up a Whole Foods in L.A. along with Katy’s sister, Angela, and another male friend.

It looks like all 4 remained pretty chill amid the coronavirus panic-shopping many are still doing — and they walked out fresh produce, frozen veggies, boxes of bottled water and a plant-based protein powder called Vega.

One thing not visible in their haul — toilet paper. Let’s hope they’ve already stocked up.

We’re told Katy and co. shopped for about 30 minutes and practiced good social distancing. She went to the car about 10 minutes before Orlando. Of course, KP — whose baby bump is more prevalent these days — could’ve just needed to get off her feet.

As we reported … Katy revealed her pregnancy earlier this month in her new “Never Worn White” music video, referring to it as the hardest secret she’s had to keep.

She and Orlando recently returned to the U.S. just before the new reality of self-isolating at home to limit the COVID-19 outbreak really set in. They’re reportedly postponing their summer wedding in Japan due to the global crisis.

At least they’ve got plenty of water and protein to get through.
