Donald Trump targets Bill Maher for $5 million over birth certificate challenge

Donald Trump wants the $5 million that HBO host Bill Maher promised to pay him if he could prove he was not the “spawn” of his mother having sexual relations with an orangutan. And if Maher doesn’t pay up, Trump said he will “probably sue him.”

Donald Trump goes after Bill Maher after a $5 million birth certificate challenge

Earlier this week Maher jokingly made the $5 million offer on “The Tonight Show,” saying he would give the money to a charity of Trump’s choice if he could prove he did not come from an orangutan. It was a knock on Trump’s previous offer to President Obama, in which he offered the president $5 million to a charity of his choice if he released his college and passport records.

And one day later, Trump released his birth certificate and called on Maher to honor the offer.

“He made an absolute offer, I made an absolute acceptance. I sent him documentation and he owes me $5 million, which I’m going to give to charity. Let’s see what happens, and if he doesn’t pay the money we will probably sue him.” Trump told Extra’s A.J. Calloway.

“You are going to sue him?” Calloway asked.

“I think so. I mean, he made an offer, we accepted the offer. I’d probably sue him,” Trump replied.
