While Donald Trump is best known for his “You’re Fired” shtick on Celebrity Apprentice, he’s also known for some pretty crazy bets-not only did he bet Obama $5 million to charity in trade for college documents, but also was on the receiving end of a bet-that may be paying off! Keep reading for the details!
Donald Trump is quickly gaining notoriety for the bets he’s taken part in. From the Obama bet disaster, to a bet with Mark Cuban over his hair. Most recently, however, was Bill Maher. Bill Maher bet Donald Trump that if Trump could prove he wasn’t related to orangutans, Bill would fork over $5 million dollars. On The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Bill Maher spoke about the challenge with Leno. “You and Trump have some kind of beef going,” said Leno. Bill replied that he would cough up the cash if Trump could prove he was “not the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan. I will offer $5 million to Donald Trump.” That $5 million would go to a charity of Trump’s choice. “He can donate to a charity of his choice. Hair Club for Men; the Institute for Incorrigible Douchebaggery. Whatever charity.”
Trump quickly issued his birth certificate, and uploaded a video to YouTube demanding the cash. “A check, immediately for five million dollars.” Many believe that Maher’s offer was made in jest; however, Donald is taking it seriously. In an interview with Fox News, Trump said, “That was venom. That wasn’t a joke.” And to show how serious he is, Donald has sued Bill Maher for the money. Donald says that the money will go to quite a few deserving charities: The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, American Cancer Society, Hurricane Sandy Victims, March of Dimes and the Police Athletic League. Trump said he felt ‘obligated’ to file the lawsuit and that the ball is now in Maher’s court.
