Donald Trump Demands $5 Million From Bill Maher

January 09, 2013 03:30 PM by Donna W. Martin

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
CBS Studios
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.

    I wish I had time to do this kind of crap, I am too busy working so the government can take my money and give it away to people who don’t want to work

    I believe Bill Maher was joking when he made the offer, as I’m sure Mr. Trump would if he didn’t take himself so seriously!

    Donald, instead of paying your lawyers to assist you in getting Bill Maher to pay 5 millions.
    Why don’t you put your own money where your mouth is and call his bluff, by MATCHING his 5 million. You know, you can spare 5 million a lot easier then Maher can. So instead of those 5 awesome charities getting one million each why not make it 2 million each!!! Call his BLUFF by matching the 5 million!!! Now that would be a real blessing to so many hurting souls… Thanks Pasco

    Trump says Oama’s birth certificate proves nothing, so what is good for the orangutang is good for the chimpanzee…this birth certificate from Balber is irrelevant

    Bill Maher offer was a spoof. Unlike Trumps offer to Obama (Obama took the high road and choose not to respond)
    Trump is not of character to take the high road. He’s just a wealthy male bimbo much like the Kardasian women……who have nothing better to do with there lives than be arrogant with their wealth. They need to role model after the real winners in life like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet!

    Is Mr. Trump connected to the Mosaic holiday donations in Apollo Beach, FLORIDA?

    ps I sent a copy of my original birth certificate to a New York Newspaper.

    So it is a joke to claim anyone’s mother had sex with an orangutan? I think not.
    Maher will not live up to his end of the deal. Typical progressive (aka thief).
