Donald Trump: I’m Suing Bill Maher For Not Paying Up After $5 Million Bet
Donald Trump phoned in to Fox & Friends as he does on Mondays, chatting this about the Super Bowl, President Obama, and… Bill Maher. Whom Trump said he is suing following their $5 million bet.
The bet/feud between the two, you may recall, stemmed from Maher’s appearance on Jay Leno‘s show, when he said he would give Trump $5 million to give to a charity of his choice if Trump proved he was not the “spawn” of an orangutan. This, of course, was a spoof pegged off Trump’s $5 million offer to Obama.
Well, Trump released his birth certificate (literally noting he is not the son of an orangutan), demanding Maher pay up — later threatening to sue. On Monday morning, he told Fox & Friends that he does plan to sue Maher, around noon today.
“He promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information,” Trump said. “Well I provided the information. He didn’t pay. So today I sue Bill Maher for $5 million for charity.”
