Trump Demands $5 Million From Bill Maher Following His 'Sex With Orangutan' Comment

Donald Trump sent a letter to Bill Maher Tuesday demanding $5 million in regards to an Maher made recently on air. On Monday's "Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Maher said he would donate $5 million to the charity of Trump's choice (Maher suggested Hair Club for Men) if the "Celebrity Apprentice" host and real estate mogul could prove he is not the "spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan."

Donald Trump sent a letter to Bill Maher Tuesday demanding $5 million in regards to a request Maher made recently on air that Trump complied with.

On Monday's "Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Maher said he would donate $5 million to the charity of Trump's choice (Maher suggested Hair Club for Men) if the "Celebrity Apprentice" host and real estate mogul could prove he is not the "spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan." The comment, which Maher said jokingly, was a nod to Trump's publicized announcement in October that he would donate $5 million to charity if President Barack Obama would release his college records.

On Tuesday, Trump's lawyer sent the letter to Maher at CBS studios with the birth certificate attached, asking the "Real Time" host keep his word. Yahoo! News obtained the letter and accompanied birth certificate:

"I write on his behalf to accept your offer (made during the Jay Leno Show on January 7, 2013) that Mr. Trump prove he is not the 'spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.' "

Attached hereto is a copy of Mr. Trump's birth certificate, demonstrating that he is the son of Fred Trump, not an orangutan. Please remit the $5 million to Mr. Trump immediately and he will ensure that the money be donated to the following five charities in equal amounts: Hurricane Sandy Victims, The Police Athletic League, The American Cancer Society, The March of Dimes, and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute."

In October 2012, Trump announced he had "something very,very big concerning the president of the United States" to announce, something that could "possibly" change the election. In a YouTube video, Trump offered a check of $5 million to a charity of Obama's choice if he would only give up his college records and applications, and his passport applications and records. Obama did not turn over the asked papers.
