In yet another move to further cement his position as the number one douchebag in the United States, Donald Trump is suing Bill Maher for something the comedian said on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno one month ago.
Playing off Trump’s then-recent announcement that he would donate $5 million to the charity or charities of Barack Obama’s choice (if the president provided proof he was a proper American citizen), Maher told Leno that he, in turn, would donate the same amount to the billionaire’s favorite charities if Trump provided proof that he is not “the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.”
Clearly, Maher – a comedian on a late-night comedy show – was joking. Maher’s comments filtered through the eyes of a humorless, narcissistic sociopath, however, doesn’t translate the way it does for normal humans. “He said it with venom. I don’t think it was a joke,” he told the three idiots who host Fox & Friends.
Since he gave his birth certificate to Maher (or to Maher’s handlers, I’m guessing) and didn’t get a response, Trump filed a lawsuit against Maher on Monday, claiming breach of contract. Trump says he wants to give the money to charity and Maher is denying those charities the funds.
If I know anything about Maher, here’s what’s going to happen: Maher will give $5 million in Trump’s name to the gayest, most liberal non-profit organization he can think of. So far, Maher’s only response comes from his Twitter feed: “What?? Really? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.”
