Donald Trump suing Bill Maher for $5 million after proving he wasn’t spawned by an orangutan

DONALD TRUMP: I have some interesting news today, because you know Bill Maher promised me $5 million – this is unrelated – $5 million. You have breaking news. Big story. But he promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information. Well I provided the information. He didn’t pay. So today I sue Bill Maher for $5 million for charity…I’ll sue him about 12:00 today, for $5 million all going to charity. He said, “If you do this,” he made me an offer, I accepted the offer immediately, and he didn’t come through with the $5 million. He made me a $5 million offer on Jay Leno’s show.

So today I’m suing him on behalf of charities. I’m suing him for $5 million. I have no idea how that’s going to turn out to be honest, but I felt I had an obligation to do on behalf of charities.

STEVE DOOCY, CO-HOST: I read that on your Twitter last week or two weeks ago. But you know what his attorney’s going to say? He’s going to say, “Look, he was only joking.”

TRUMP: Well, he may, and let’s see what happens. I don’t think he was joking. He said it with venom. That was venom. That wasn’t a joke. In fact he was nervous when he said it. It was like really, it was a pathetic delivery. But he said, “I will give,” and I said, “I will accept.” So, let’s see what happens. I had an obligation to the charities.
