When Maher was on with Leno, he made a trumped-up demand from The Donald, saying he would donate $5 million to the charity of Trump’s choice, if he proved that he was not the “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” This referring to Trump’s promise to donate $5 million to charity, if President Barack Obama would provide his passport applications, birth certificate and college records, to prove that he was a naturally born American citizen.
The Celebrity Apprentice host had his attorney send a letter to the comedian along with a copy of Trump’s birth certificate, demanding that the $5 million be distributed evenly between five charities: Hurricane Sandy Victims, The Police Athletic League, The American Cancer Society, The March of Dimes, and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
“He promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “Well, I provided the information, he didn’t pay. So today I sue Bill Maher for $5 million for charity.”
Trump gave Maher until noon today to make good on his pledge. No word yet, if Maher came through.
“I don’t think he was joking,” Trump added. “He said it with venom. That was venom. That wasn’t a joke. In fact he was nervous when he said it. It was a pathetic delivery, but he said, ‘I will give’ and I said I will accept, so let’s see what happens.”
