Another 'Birther' Controversy: Donald Trump Demands $5 Million From Bill Maher Yahoo
"Celebrity Apprentice" host Donald Trump is demanding $5 million from comedian Bill Maher, holding Maher's feet to the fire after a television appearance by Maher mocking Trump’s “birther” demands, Yahoo News reports.
In an appearance Monday on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Maher offered to donate $5 million to a charity of Trump's choice if Trump could prove he's not the "spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan," according to the story. Maher's comment mocked Trump's announcement back in October that he would donate $5 million if President Obama released his college records.
Trump's attorney on Tuesday sent a letter to Maher with the birth certificate attached, asking him to donate the money to several charities, including Hurricane Sandy Victims, The Police Athletic League, The American Cancer Society, The March of Dimes, and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
A representative for Maher didn't immediately return a request for comment, Yahoo News reports.
