Even for Donald Trump standards, this latest feud is a little ridiculous. Trump is suing comedian Bill Maher for $5 million all over the fact that Trump proved he wasn’t the spawn of an orangutan.
Confused? Let’s start from the beginning of this feud… Maher previously appeared on Jay Leno challenging Trump to show his birth certificate to prove that his father wasn’t an orangutan and he would give him $5 million to donate to charities of his choice.
Well The Donald took Maher up on his offer and showed his birth certificate to prove he was not the son of an orangutan, but Maher hasn’t paid up the $5 million. Trump has now filed a lawsuit against Maher, which he plans to see through to the end unless Maher pays the amount.
To prove he was serious, Trump even appeared on TMZ Live Tuesday to talk about the feud, saying he won’t back down unless Maher pays the amount he agreed to in the beginning.
“What he said about my father is disgraceful … and what he said about my mother, who’s deceased, was in a certain way, even more disgraceful,” Trump said on TMZ. “I would say I’ve never heard anything like that said about my parents, who were truly great people.”
Trump filed the lawsuit at Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, but many analysts say that Donald’s claim doesn’t stand a chance in court.
