Donald Trump to sue Bill Maher after bet feud
Politico ^ | February 4, 2014 | Kevin Cirilli

Posted on 02/04/2013 7:48:56 AM PST by Zakeet

Donald Trump said Monday that he’s suing liberal comic Bill Maher for $5 million for charity because Maher did not follow through on a public bet he made on “The Tonight Show.”

“He promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information,” Trump said Monday on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” “Well I provided the information. He didn’t pay. So today I sue Bill Maher for $5 million for charity.”

Last month, Maher said on NBC to Jay Leno that he would pay $5 million to Trump’s charity of choice if he provided a birth certificate proving that he’s not “spawn of his mother having sex with orangutan.” It was similar to an offer Trump made to President Barack Obama during the presidential campaign season, in which Trump wanted Obama to release his college records.

“[Maher] made me an offer. I accepted the offer immediately, and he didn’t come through with the $5 million,” Trump said on Fox News.

I love it, and hoped he would sue. And I hope that dip$shit Maher loses on an parody claim or the like.

Our country would be a better place if both of these people just shut the heck up.

It must be a miserable man who has to stoop to such antics to get attention.

I wouldn’t want Trump’s money if I had to take his demons to go with it.

I have to respectfully disagree with you. Maher is scum and he needs to learn that his vulgar and stupid insults are not comedy. Maybe if he spends some time and money on lawyers he’ll be more circumspect in the future.

“spawn of his mother having sex with orangutan.”

As with the typical liberal, insults take the place of arguments. Socrates once said “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser”. Slander is all the left has ever used.

It’ll be thrown out as frivolous and Trump will have to pay expenses if he goes through with it. Trump would probably appeal to the highest court. LOL.

I’d rather he spent his time and money on bone specialists. And possibly a prosthetic nose.

Effective way to obliquely keep the illegitimacy of little barry bastard boy in the public mind. P.T. Barnum would be proud of The Donald.

Well, for one thing, he won’t be suing MAher, he will be suing the company Maher works for. So in essence the Lawyers will win. Any settlements will be between Maher’s company and Trump. Having said that, I wouldn’t be so quick to say that this is a frivolous law suit.

It's called anal intercourse ... and it's been an almost limitless source of lawyers, politicians and libtards for decades!

I searched for this question and now i won’t have to ask it. I notice no answers.
I find it hard to believe its enforceable.

After Trump makes the socialist fraud Maher pay for putting his foot in his mouth. I think as part of the settlement Maher should have to prove he is not a lizard dressed up in a suit.

Okay. Nice play on Trump’s part.

However, a name on a birth certificate doesn’t prove who “spawned” The Donald. I wonder if Maher has the brass ones to respond so.

The courts are forcing states to put the names of two homosexual individuals on birth certificates when it is impossible for the child to be the result of a union between said couple.

If Maher said the same of Obama, the Liberals wouldn’t be laughing, now would they?

Court Jesters never make fun of the King.

Oral agreements are binding, at least in some jurisdictions. I don’t know about NY where presumably Trump would sue the pig. In this case, Maher made his bargain (with its very gross implication) on national TV. Trump surely has his witnesses to the oral agreement.

I doubt Trump would hire a lawyer who didn’t know precisely what he could and could not do. He wouldn’t want to file a suit only to have it dismissed on motion.

IF Trump proceeds and wins, I hope it’s the charity of HIS choice and not Maher’s.

"... I wouldn’t be so quick to say that this is a frivolous law suit."

Slander? Interfering, by slander, his profession?

HA, HA, HA! I'd like to know. Lawyering is my hobby!

Happy Housewifery is my profession.

TIA!

They used to be. It's called being a man of your word.
