If this election has taught us anything, it's that Donald Trump isn't afraid of a fight. If you call him out, he's going to step up and answer, something Bill Maher obviously wasn't counting on back in 2013.
On Tuesday, a lawyer for Trump sent the letter to Maher with the birth certificate attached, asking the “Real Time” host to make good on his late-night offer:
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.
In October, Trump announced he had “something very, very big concerning the president of the United States”—something he said could “possibly” change the election—leading to speculation that the 66-year-old might have unearthed scandalous information about Obama.
“Barack Obama is the least transparent president in the history of this country,” Trump said in a video shot from his New York office and uploaded to YouTube. “I'm very honored to have gotten him to release his long-form birth certificate or whatever it may be.
“I have a deal for the president,” Trump continued. “If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications and if he gives his passport applications and records, I will give to a charity of his choice—inner-city children in Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS research, anything he wants—a check immediately for $5 million.”
This is what politics have become, cowards judging people from their high horses, treating government like it's a form of entertainment. Following the re-election of President Obama, Trump took to social media to say, “Well, back to the drawing board.” It looks like we now know what he meant.
