In an NBC “Tonight Show” appearance in January, Mr. Maher said he would give $5 million to a charity of Mr. Trump’s choice if the businessman released a birth certificate proving he wasn’t the “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan,” Politico recounted, explaining that the statements was a thinly veiled mocking of the Obama birth certificate controversy.
“He promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information,” Mr. Trump said on Monday’s Fox and Friends morning show. “Well, I provided that information. He didn’t pay. So today I sue Bill Maher for $5 million for charity.”
