Donald Trump sues Bill Maher

Source: Washington Post

Publicity stunts for Donald Trump are nothing new — but this one is just weird. Trump says he’s suing Bill Maher, claiming the acerbic comic failed to make good on a public bet. Last month, Maher told Jay Leno he’d give $5 million to Trump’s charity of choice if the businessman could prove he’s not “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” Trump sent his birth certificate listing Fred Trump as his father — and now wants Maher to pay up. “He promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information,” Trump told “Fox & Friends” Monday. “Well, I provided the information.

and hair follicle dna. That means the little animal that sits upon his head will have to climb down so we can be sure we are getting a bit of what might actually be left of da Trump hair. (I'll bet there is very real hair left in that prize winning comb over)

2. The birth certificate is not dispositive of the question

So, the orangutan was named Fred Trump.

But, in all seriousness, no reasonable person would have considered this to be an objectively enforcible offer. Bill Maher is a comedian.

11. "Meeting of the minds" is a limited concept

In the case of public offers or rewards, a unilateral promise is capable of binding acceptance.

For example, if you post "lost cat, $50 reward", then whoever shows up with the cat is entitled to the $50 you promised. No "meeting of minds" required.

And maybe his mother too. But how do we know she was really his mother? Couldn't he just as easily been the love child of Ayn Rand and a baboon? Maybe he's trying to throw us off the trail with this. Looks like Ayn is going to have to come up too. And we will need newspaper clippings too. I think we need to push on for years until we get to the purple assed bottom of this.

Especially since he's naturally so funny, beginning with his hair. I like to believe there's a parallel universe in which Donald Trump is a comedian, or some kind of comedic public figure, rather than a mere asshole. Sorta like what he actually was before he allied himself so heavily with the baggers, actually.
