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.

For a guy who is quick to hold a big press conference just to insult someone you'd think he would have thicker skin. He just proves what I've thought for a long time; Donal Trump is an irrevalant bag of hot air that wouldn't know class if it crawled onto his head and mimed for him

Hey Trump,

When people call you a son of a bitch, they don't mean your mother is a dog either. Idiot.

The way I see it, they're both idiots, but hey, if the end result is $5 million to charity then I hope Trump wins.

Trump is an ass and since November's Republican fiasco, I honestly think he's getting worse. He's just beating up on Bill because Rosie O'Donell isn't around for hin to kick in the head anymore.

Hey Trump, ask Obama for his baptismal record. If he was baptized, he had one, ipso facto. Every baptized Christian has one. Or, his Chicago thugs can invent it, and the Blue Hoard will believe it.
