Trump Sues Maher for $5 Mil

Donald Trump
's mother is no orangutan-banger ... so says the Donald himself in a new, actually-filed lawsuit obtained by TMZ. Seriously, Trump actually filed this.

The Donald just sued Bill Maher for $5 MILLION ... claiming the HBO talk show host is skipping out on his promise to donate $5 mil to charity if Trump could prove he isn't the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.

According to Trump, Maher made the offer during an appearance on "Leno" ... after Trump had made a $5 million challenge to President Obama regarding POTUS' birth certificate.

In his suit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Trump says he formally responded to Maher's challenge with a copy of his birth certificate, proving he is, in fact, the "son of Fred Trump" ... who is not a member of the Great Ape family.


Trump claims 5 "worthy charities" have now been deprived of millions of dollars in donations ... and it's all Maher's fault.

Anyone in the mood for a banana?

Trump is a waste of skin. What Bill Maher said was clearly tongue-in-cheek due to Trump's request of Obama.

Don't make an offer if you are not prepared to back it up.

I didn't believe it, so I actually read the do***ent. The Part-Orangutan allegation is mentioned in item 24 (skip the rest - it's boring).

At one time, I admired Trump. Thanks to reality TV, and the media, I've come to realize he's just another Narcissistic Fame Whore. He's not doing this for charity - he needs to see himself in the news. He is just making a fool of himself - again!

Trump never has and never will deliver on the presidents birth certificate so the deal is pointless. Also Maher made the deal on Leno as a joke because he knew just how ridiculous the offer made by Trump was.

Trump is an uber-mega-super-douche, the case is ridiculous and will get thrown out of court.. Bill knew going in that would never stand up, he is making a mockery of a modern day P.T. Barnum..

Democrats are evil    

This is what Maher gets for slandering people on National Television. He can dish it out but as a Typical Liberal, he gets offended when he has to take it in return. Maher is a Douche bag.

Just in, the Orangutans have filed suit against Maher for devolving them to the lower class biped known as Trump.

We're taking about a factual claim that needs proof to say otherwise. In this claim no facts are needed as this isn't even possible. He has no base for a lawsuit. Trump is a sick man in need of mental

The Ghost of John Lennon    

The idea that the Northern states were against slavery is a complete falsehood. The newspapers are filled with ads buying and selling African people. The only reason that slavery was more widespread in the South was not because Northern Whites loved Black people, but because the warmer climate and flatter terrain in the South allowed for more varieties of produce to be grown in a much larger area. Simply put: the farther South one goes, the higher the concentration of Black slaves.
The early Massachusetts legislature was the first to officially welcome the African slave trade; in fact, many “proper Bostonians” built their fortunes upon that despicable enterprise. Massachusetts became America’s leading slave-ship builder and sent one expedition after another into Africa to rape, pillage, and plunder her Black humanity. Gangs of chained Africans were landed on the docks of Boston and Salem by white Massachusetts merchants and auctioned alongside hogs, lumber, and casks of cheese, destined for a life of hopeless bondage.
Slaveholders in the North were exceedingly brutal and in New York “inappropriate and disruptive kindness” was actually against the law. Any master “forgiving, making up, or compromising” with slaves was severely fined in New York. Wall Street (which has now enslaved ALL of America) was notorious in the 160...0's for its African and Indian slave auctions.

Donald is smart. He knows that a birth certificate doesn't prove paternity. It just states what the mother puts on it. We need DNA!

He doesn't need a court to settle this - the TMZ commenters have already found a bunch of issues with the suit. It will be thrown out for sure. Good job everyone!
