Here we go again with more drama from Celebrity Apprentice star, Donald Trump. This time, Trump demands that comedian Bill Maher cough up $5 million. What’s up with that? Take the jump for more details.
According to Yahoo News, Maher made a Trump-like demand earlier this week when he appeared on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno. As it turns out, Maher mocked Trump’s birther movement and the outlandish demands he made on President Obama in October with his “Trump Obama Announcement.” Maher said he would pay $5 million a charity of Trump’s choice if he could prove he wasn’t the “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.”
Trump was anxious to clear up any questions regarding his birth and on Tuesday, his attorney released the following letter to Maher along with a copy of Trump’s birth certificate:
January 8, 2013
Mr. Bill Maher
Real Time with Bill Maher
7800 Beverly Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Dear Mr. Maher:
I represent Mr. Donald J. Trump. I write on his behalf to accept your offer (made during the Jay Leno Show on January 7, 2013) that Mr. Trump prove he is not the “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.”
Attached hereto is a copy of Mr. Trump’s birth certificate, demonstrating that he is the son of Fred Trump, not an orangutan. Please remit the $5 million to Mr. Trump immediately and he will ensure that the money be donated to the following five charities in equal amounts: Hurricane Sandy Victims, The Police Athletic League, The American Cancer Society, The March of Dimes, and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Scott S. Balber
Now that Trump has fulfilled his end of the deal, he expects Maher to make good on his promise and pay up.
What do you think of the latest Trump drama? Do you think Maher was serious or just being funny when he challenged Trump? What do you think will happen now? Will Maher pay up? Post a comment and let us know.
