Donald Trump Bizarre Lawsuit Over a Joke

There are many adjectives that are appropriate when describing Donald Trump… Stale, crusty, insufferable—these will all do just fine. But funny? Nah. Sorry, kids. That one won’t cut it.

The balding billionaire recently made headlines because he is suing comedian Bill Maher for $5 million dollars.

Maher, who hosts the series “Real Time With Bill Maher” on HBO, made an offer to Trump related to a Twitter-feud during an appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” that he would pay $5 million to charity if Trump could prove that he wasn’t the “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” Yes, the Asian ape…

It was meant to be a light-hearted moment, jabbing at Trump's previous offer to Obama. The problem was “The Apprentice” personality has no sense of humor and took the offer 100 percent literally.

Cut to Monday night when Trump called in to an episode of “FOX & Friends,” where he informed viewers that he did provide the docs and wasn’t given his cash.

“He promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information,” Toad Trump croaked during a phone-in to the show. “Well, I provided the information. He didn’t pay. So today I sue Bill Maher for $5 million for charity.”

And, just like that, FOX News somehow became a little more pathetic…

Maher has since responded with this on Twitter: “What?? Really? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha”
