Bill Maher on Trump (the Orangutan joke) - The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
“I don’t think he was joking. He said it with venom. That was venom. That wasn’t a joke” - Donald Trump
Guess what? The Donald is suing Bill Maher for NOT giving money to charity
Here’s a great article by David Berry (@pleasuremotors), linked below, worth quoting at length:
So, remember back in October, when Donald Trump dropped his “bombshell” that he would give US$5-million to charity if Barack Obama would release his college records and passport applications, as part of Trump’s unending quest to prove that Barack Obama is not actually a real American, like the country wouldn’t have some kind of safeguard against that, and the response was generally like, “Donald, you unbelievable asshole, why are you holding charities hostage?” and he was all like, “WATCH CELEBRITY APPRENTICE!” except that he wasn’t, because it turns out Donald Trump is not only a vicious shill for his brand, he is a vicious shill who has trouble forming thoughts based on things that he has read, or is maybe just really confused about the status of black Americans and whether or not they are legally recognized as people.
Anyway, a lot of people were making jokes about the Donald’s “bombshell,” one of whom was Bill Maher, who you might know as an ignorant generally unfunny blowhard, except that he’s left-leaning so he’s somehow better than all the ones who do the same thing he does, but on Fox.
Bill Maher went ahead and made the very funny joke that HE would donate US$5-million to charity if Donald Trump proved he wasn’t related to an orangutan, because he has funny fake hair, and an orangutan has funny hair, and ha ha, someone made a hair joke about Donald Trump, oh Bill Maher will your antics never cease.
Now, that might seem ridiculous, but keep in mind this is the guy who openly called for revolution after President Obama was democratically re-elected. So, obviously he has no idea what a joke even is. Donald Trump sits in a room and a guy says to him, “Hey, what do you call the baby when you mate an elephant with a rhino?” and Donald Trump says, “I don’t know, but it couldn’t be president of the United States!” and then everyone kind of gets quiet and goes back to discussing quarterly earnings and silently thinking that Donald Trump is walking proof that capitalism might not really be all that it’s cracked up to be.
UPDATE: Bill Maher seems to have gotten wind of the lawsuit:
