Bill Maher strikes again. It turns out that Donald Trump is suing Bill Maher. He is suing for $5 million for an orangutan sex joke.

So why is this joke so offensive that it deserves a suit? Bill Maher said in jest that he would donate $5 million to a charity if Trump could prove he wasn't the "the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan."

It was evident Bill Maher got the idea from Trump making the same offer for President Obama’s transcripts. Well lo and behold, Trump sent Bill Maher some sort of certificate of birth.

What is very amusing is that Bill Maher turned the table on Trump. Trump would not accept the short form certificate of birth from President Obama. To this day he continues to cast doubt on the President’s certificate’s authenticity.


Bill Maher is now casting doubt on the authenticity of Trump’s birth certificate since it was similar to the one he refused  to accept as authentic from the President. One would think that the vocal Trump would have his attorney provide documents that would prevent him from falling right into his own hilarious trap.

Aren’t Republicans always harping about frivolous lawsuits? The hypocrisy continues. Trump is using the taxpayer paid justice system to garner free publicity. He should be made to pay for the court’s inconvenience.

Donald Trump should be ashamed of this lawsuit. He should stay within the private domain and engage with Bill Maher. After all, if his billions are not just a figment of his imagination he should be able to afford to. Then again, a real wealthy guy would not be doing silly reality TV shows and engaging in childish demagoguery. It is hard to believe he was once in the lead during the Republican contentious primaries in 2012.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
