Shocking News! Donald Trump Can’t Take Criticism

Absurdity 2

Indulge me while I take a brief moment to talk about part-time real estate tycoon and full-time jackass (hmm, that sounds eerily familiar), Donald Trump.

Trump is apparently suing comedian Bill Maher due to a joke. I say “apparently” because Trump says many things that exist outside the realm of logical and rational thought.

In January Bill Maher said on The Tonight Show that if Trump could provide a birth certificate proving he’s not “spawn of his mother having sex with orangutan,” that he would give Trump $5 million for the charity of his choice. Regardless of whether you think it was a good or bad joke, or if you even think Maher is being plain mean, he is a comedian, it was a joke. — But not according to Trump, who isn’t satisfied unless he’s spewing criticism, but cannot take criticism himself.

Donald Trump to sue Bill Maher after bet feud:

POLITICO — “[Maher] made me an offer. I accepted the offer immediately, and he didn’t come through with the $5 million,” Trump said on Fox News.

Trump’s attorney Scott S. Balber released a letter following Maher’s comments and attached a copy of Trump’s birth certificate.

“Attached hereto is a copy of Mr. Trump’s birth certificate, demonstrating that he is the son of Fred Trump, not an orangutan,” Balber wrote in the letter.

But wasn’t Maher just kidding?

“I don’t think he was joking. He said it with venom. That was venom. That wasn’t a joke. In fact, he was nervous when he said it. It was a pathetic delivery,” Trump said on Fox News.

Trump tweeted the following after his Fox News appearance:

What a buffoon.

    A birth certificate means nothing. For all we know “Fred” was an orangutan.

    The closest way Trump could prove it is with DNA testing.

    Short of exhuming his fathers remains (if available) his DNA is probably a higher match than the average human DNA which would put him at 98% orangutan.

    Go ahead Donald, for 2% proof have your DNA compared with an orangutan, better proof than a piece of paper.

      I’d push for this if not for my compassion for the orangutans of the world. :)
