Is lunacy of this type common in other countries or is it exclusively an American phenomena?
Donald Trump, the real estate mogul who is worth $3.1 billion according to Forbes, is suing Bill Maher for $5 million for likening him to a monkey.
Trump called into “Fox & Friends” Monday to say that he’s suing the HBO host for going on Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show” last month and joking that Trump must be “the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.”
Maher was mocking Trump’s offer to give $5 million to the charity of Barack Obama’s choice if the president released his college paperwork. Maher said he would do the same if Trump proved he didn’t descend from an ape.
Trump filed suit in LA on Monday which guarantees that his name remains in the news for another week or so. Mission accomplished. We’ve become accustomed to Trump the publicity hound doing whatever it takes to keep the spotlight on himself. His months-long charade last year where he “contemplated” running in the Republican primary and his birther nonsense were all engineered to keep the Trump name in the news.
And now the clown is suing Maher for a joke the comedian made comparing Trump to an orangutan. Dumb…but that’s how it is with sociopaths like Trump. People like him (Palin, Beck and Limbaugh, to name a few, fit into the same category) are capable of saying or doing just about anything because they are incapable of feeling shame or being embarrassed. They are driven by one or more of the following – money, power, fame and vengeance.
This is what allows a Donald Trump to keep a straight face when he makes comments like this:
“He [Maher] said it with venom. I don’t think it was a joke.”
He doesn’t think it was a joke?
Yeah, that’s right, you ignorant buffoon. Maher was serious. He really believes your mother screwed an orangutan in a fit of drunken passion.
Tell you what…I’m starting to believe it too.
