Trump claims that Maher broke his word concerning an deal the two had, reports The New York Daily News. Trump says they agreed in writing that Maher would make a donation to a charity if Trump could prove that his father was not an orangutan.
Maher made the joke on Jay Leno’s show after Trump tried to entice President Obama into releasing his college transcripts with an offer of $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choosing. After Maher made the joke, Trump produced a birth certificate showing that he’s the son of Fred Trump, a human being.
As Maher has not paid up, Trump is suing for breach of contract. Trump filed the suit in Los Angeles Monday and announced it on Fox News. In response to the filing, Maher tweeted, “What?? Really? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.”
