Trump Rips Bill Maher

How Dare You

Insult My Parents!

EXCLUSIVE

020513_tmzlive_trump_launch
Donald Trump has made it clear ... his legal war with Bill Maher isn't just about the money ... it's personal -- telling TMZ the comic CROSSED THE LINE when he suggested Trump's mom banged an orangutan.

Trump just appeared on "TMZ Live" and explained why he's confident he'll emerge victorious in his $5 million lawsuit against Maher ... claiming he doesn't believe Bill was joking when he appeared on Leno earlier this year and challenged Trump to prove he isn't the "spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan."

Donald says he vows to defend his parents' honor -- telling us, "What he said about my father is disgraceful ... and what he said about my mother, who's deceased, was in a certain way, even more disgraceful."

"I've never heard anything like that said about my parents ... who were truly great people."

Trump says he's willing to see his lawsuit through to the end -- unless Maher ponies up the money to the charities of Trump's choice immediately.

Lame, unfunny, offensive parody of a public figure is still parody, and a protected first amendment right. It's already been done before and litigated all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States.

No reasonable person could believe Maher's statements were anything but parody of a public figure, not a serious offer. And anyone who can't see that, or is so blinded by their hatred for Maher they think this suit has legs is an idiot! lols

God Bless you Larry, you devious uncouth douche bag for being on the bleeding edge of defending all of our first amendment rights! :)

Bill Maher is constantly insulting someone and usually not funny. Trump obviously has thin skin and should know better. This lawsuit will go nowhere and will probably be dismissed for lack of "a cause of action". Trump is a "public figure" which makes it difficult to be slandered and what are Trump's damages? Can't stand either of these guys but at one time I did like Trump. He has lost me now.

Well after all the terrible things he has said about other people they should start suing him. Rosie Odonnel should be first in line. He called her a pig, I think she can prove her parents were human, she should sue him for 5 million dollars for every time he said it.

There was a song in the 80's about something like this;
..
I am a man who will fight for your honor. I'll be the hero that you're dreaming of. Gonna live forever knowing together. That we did it all for the glory of honor ...

Anyone on Trump's side shouldn't breed at all and probably wishes Bieber to perform at the next Super Bowl instead or an awesome rock band.

He will cause a lot of wasted legal fees and can be sued by Maher for filing a frivolous lawsuit. 1) It's technically impossible for a human and ape to mate. Therefore, the presumption is that he would know it's a joke. 2) Bill Maher is a comedian and provides commentary on public figures routinely, protected under law. 3) Trump would need to show that the comments harmed him somehow, primarily in business; he will be unable to show this since it didn't happen.
