The Donald doesn’t like a challenge, particularly if it concerns his birth certificate.
Maher, 56, announced on Monday night he would donate $5 million to the charity of Trump’s choice if he was able to prove that he is not the ‘spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.’
Some people would have taken the high road, ignoring the obvious insult. Not Trump though. On Tuesday, Scott S. Balber, a lawyer for Trump, 66, sent the HBO’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher‘ host a letter with Trump’s birth certificate attached.
To underline the gotcha, the letter asked Maher, said to be worth $40 million, to come up with the promised cash.
The birth certificate demonstrated that Trump ‘is the son of Fred Trump, not an orangutan,’ the letter said.
Maher had earlier suggested Trump would likely donate the cash to the ‘Hair Club for Men’ or ‘The Institute for Incorrigible Douchebaggery’ but Trump’s letter indicated he wants to give $1 million each to charities for the Hurricane Sandy Victims, The Police Athletic League, The American Cancer Society, The March of Dimes and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Maher’s birth certificate malarky was a pointed send up of Trump’s notorious announcement in October that he would donate $5 million to charity if President Obama would release his college records.
At the time Trump declared he was sitting on ‘something very, very, big concerning the president of the United States’ that could ‘possibly’ change the election.
But the public was unimpressed with the big reveal, however, when it turned out to be just more birtherism, which many commentators decry as blatant racism – since its suggests that Obama is not ‘one of us.’
Obama later made fun of Trump on the ‘Tonight Show,’ suggesting that the bad blood between himself and Trump stems back to an argument the pair had ‘when we were growing up together in Kenya.’
According to the Daily Mail a representative for Maher did not immediately return a request for comment. ‘I’m not looking for a feud with Donald Trump,’ said Maher on the Tonight Show.
Bill Maher, ‘If the Mittmobile does roll into Washington it will be towing behind it the whole anti-intellectual anti-science freak show.’
America, before you get in bed with Mitt Romney, remember he may seem like a nice fella from what we know about his core beliefs. Nothing. His tax plan. Nothing. His faith. Off limits, and his donors, anonymous. Now when I talk about getting into bed with Mitt Romney, I don’t mean that literally. Please, Mitt Romney doesn’t even know what a blow job is. He thinks it’s something the Pep Boys do to clean out your carburetor. No, what I’m trying to do is make an analogy to that old public service announcement about how when you go to bed with one person, you’re not just sleeping with them. Well, it’s like that with Mitt.
When you elect Mitt, you’re not just electing him. You’re electing every right wing nut he’s pandered to in the last ten years. If the Mittmobile does roll into Washington it will be towing behind it the whole anti-intellectual anti-science freak show. The abstinence obsessives, the flat earthers, home schoolers, the holy warriors, the anti-women social neanderthals, the closeted homosexuals, and every endtimer who sees the Virgin Mary in the grass over the septic tank.
