Donald Trump sues Bill Maher for $5 million after half-orangutan joke

LOS ANGELES - Donald Trump announced he plans to sue HBO's Real Time host Bill Maher for $5 million-- because Trump wasn't paid after proving he wasn't half orangutan.

In January, Maher poked fun at the fact that Trump questions President Obama's birthplace and said he believed Trump came from a union between a human and an orangutan, according to The Wrap.

Maher told Tonight Show host Leno that he'd pay Trump $5 million for charity if Trump could prove he was all human.

Trump shared a copy of his birth certificate with Yahoo News and asked that Maher pay up, but he says Maher never did.

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Monday.
