Trump Rips Bill Maher

How Dare You

Insult My Parents!

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.

THE ONLY LAWSUIT THAT SHOULD BE FILED AGAINST BILL MAHER ...
IS FOR THE DEFAMATION OF ALL ORANGUTANS .
A SPECIES VASTLY SMARTER and with BETTER LOOKING HAIR THAN TRUMP COULD EVER HOPE FOR.

Trump is proving beyond a doubt he is a schoolboy bully. He is unable to take any criticism. He insults everyone who makes any negative comment about him. This issue is a joke!! I hope no lawyers are making money on this Bed and tie selling idiot. He must embarass his children

Donald "The Liar Trump" could not even tell the truth in his court filings he claimed that he was a serious candidate for the 2012 Presidential Election, that was a Bold face lie, that Harvey was afraid to Confront The Liar on.

Bill Maher is a disgusting, spineless piece of sh*t. Maher is lucky Trump is only sueing him. If he said that about my parents he would be going to the hospital instead of court.

The Donald insulted? The insulter insulted? Ah sweet karma! It's nice to see karma in action.
Oh and Donald? The mothership left a mesage, it's not picking you up. Play nice with the earthlings now, don't piss them off like you pissed us off.

Bill Maher isn't funny, his jokes were always aimed at tittilating the stupid, He tries to sell everyone on the laughable idea he's a ladies man, and his ideas are simple minded and hate filled at best. Did I say he's not funny?...he isn't.

So it's ok for Trump to go around asking to see the president's birth certificate for 4 years but it's not ok to insult his parents? OK
