Donald Trump

Drops $5 Mil Monkey Suit Against Bill Maher

(For Now)

Donald Trump
is done beating his chest ... at least for now ... TMZ has learned The Donald has withdrawn the $5 million lawsuit he filed against Bill Maher for calling him monkey spawn.

Trump sued Maher in February, claiming Maher skipped out on a promise to donate $5 mil to charity if Trump could prove he wasn't part orangutan. Maher made the offer during an appearance on "Leno" ... after Trump made his $5 million challenge to President Obama regarding the POTUS' birth certificate.

In his suit, Trump said he formally responded to Maher's challenge with a copy of his birth certificate, proving he's the "son of Fred Trump" ... who is, in fact, not a monkey ... and Bill should have to pony up.

Maher scoffed at Trump, calling the whole situation a joke.

Now, we've learned Trump filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court on March 29 to dismiss the case ... but a rep for "The Apprentice" star says it doesn't mean the war is over.

"The lawsuit was temporarily withdrawn to be amended and refiled at a later date," says Michael Cohen (Trump's Executive Vice President and Special Counsel).

As for when Trump plans to refile the suit ... that question is still unanswered.

Gee who saw THAT coming?? Trump is such a bully. Groundless lawsuits that are dropped months later are standard Trump tactics.

Bill Maher, if you incurred any legal expenses in this matter I hope you countersue the orange-haired, thin-skinned, pompous blowhard.

Ahhh, whyyyy? This was kinda' funny. To me they both sort of look like they could be related to the apes. I wanna see 'em have it out in court over this. See the look on the judges face when he sees the subject of the lawsuit in front of him. Plus what charity can't use 5 mill? Hmmm?

It was interesting that Trump announced the lawsuit very close to the time the new season of Celebrity Apprentice was about to start.
