Donald Trump to Bill Maher: Cough Up the $5 Million You Owe Me or I’ll Sue You

Donald Trump Threatens to Sue Bill Maher if He Doesnt Honor $5 Million Offer

NEW YORK, NY – JANUARY 09: Donald Trump Credit: Getty Images

Donald Trump wants the $5 million that HBO host Bill Maher promised to pay him if he could prove he was not the “spawn” of his mother having sexual relations with an orangutan. And if Maher doesn’t pay up, Trump said he will “probably sue him.”

Earlier this week Maher jokingly made the $5 million offer on “The Tonight Show,” saying he would give the money to a charity of Trump’s choice if he could prove he did not come from an orangutan. It was a knock on Trump’s previous offer to President Obama, in which he offered the president $5 million to a charity of his choice if he released his college and passport records.

And one day later, Trump released his birth certificate and called on Maher to honor the offer. The fact that Maher was obviously joking doesn’t seem to matter to the real estate tycoon.

“He made an absolute offer, I made an absolute acceptance. I sent him documentation and he owes me $5 million, which I’m going to give to charity. Let’s see what happens, and if he doesn’t pay the money we will probably sue him.” Trump told Extra’s A.J. Calloway.

“You are going to sue him?” Calloway asked.

“I think so. I mean, he made an offer, we accepted the offer. I’d probably sue him,” Trump replied.

Watch the video via Extra/Mediaite below:

During Thursday’s “Kelly’s Court” segment on Fox News, a legal panel debated whether Maher is legally obligated to pay Trump. Watch the segment below:

He didn't prove what Maher said.  A birth certificate isn't how you prove you don't have orangutan DNA.

I wonder if he'll go to the trouble of having his DNA analysed.

If he wants to sue he will have to.

My guess is Maher will claim satire, which is protected speech, and since he's a comedian will not be too worried.

ROFL that you think so. If he sues I hope the judge laughs his ass out of the courtroom.
