Trump: Maher “made an absolute offer. I made an absolute acceptance.”

January 10th, 2013

Bill Maher said he would give Donald Trump $5 million if Trump provided his birth certificate to prove he is not the “spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” Trump obliged, and sent Maher a copy of his birth certificate. In this post, I wondered whether a valid contract was formed.

Well, it looks like The Donald may in fact sue Bill Maher if Maher does not give him $5 Million.

Perhaps in a preemptive move, Trump used the megaphone that is “Extra” to issue a warning to Maher. “He made an absolute offer. I made an absolute acceptance. I showed him documentation, and he owes me $5 million, which I’m going to give to charities,” Trump said. “Let’s see what happens, and if he doesn’t give me the money, we’ll probably sue him.”

Offer and acceptance = contract.
