It seems that Bill Maher appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno recently and attempted to spoof the offer that Donald Trump made to President Obama by offering $5 million in his “Trump Obama Announcement.” What Maher offered, specifically, was $5 million to a charity of Trump’s choice if Trump could prove that he wasn’t the “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.”
Apparently anxious to comply and get $5 million for some of his favorite charities, Trump got his lawyers right on it. Bill Maher received the following letter from one of Donald Trump’s attorneys.

Mr. Bill Maher
Real Time with Bill Maher
7800 Beverly Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Dear Mr. Maher:
I represent Mr. Donald J. Trump. 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.
Scott S. Balber
Now that Donald Trump has upheld his end of the deal, he expects Bill Maher to uphold his. Do you think Maher will actually pay $5 million to Donald Trump or was it just a joke? Will Maher give up the $5 million for charity's sake?
Sometimes you have to be careful what you ask for, especially on national television.
