Bill Maher responds to Donald Trump’s absurd lawsuit
Donald Trump’s ridiculous lawsuit over a Bill Maher joke gave Maher the opportunity to further ridicule The Celebrity Apprentice star, who has crossed the line into absurdity that some of his Apprentice decisions now seem rational by contrast.
The background: Maher joked on The Tonight Show that he’d give $5 million to charity if Donald Trump proved he wasn’t “spawn of his mother having sex with orangutan,” which was Maher’s way of mocking Trump’s similarly idiotic offer during the presidential election.
In his response Friday on HBO’s Real Time, Maher said, in part, that “Donald Trump must learn two things: what a joke is and what a contract is,” and added later, “The legal system in this country—it’s not a joke. It’s not a toy for rich idiots to play with.”
