One of my favorite things to do is catch up on the "weird news" column on Canoe.ca
They collect strange news stories from around the world, and this is one of the weirdest I've seen in a long time.
Donald Trump maintains lawsuit against Bill Maher for his bet - Weird News - Canoe.ca
It seems Bill Maher made some joke about offering 5 Million dollars to the charity of Donald Trumps choice if he would provide a copy of his birth certificate proving that his father was not an ape. The Don apparently decided to take this seriously, and provided his birth certificate, but is upset because Maher refuses to pay up.
He filed a lawsuit in California last month and Trump says it will be up to the courts to decide whether or not it was a joke.
How can someone supposedly so smart be so dumb?
Does he mean to tell me that he thinks Bill Maher was actually convinced that Donald Trump's father was an ape? Are we to believe that he doesn't know full well that this was a satirical comment meant to poke fun at the request Trump made to see Obama's birth certificate?
It seems to me that this is a bully's attempt at silencing free speech. I, for one, love Bill Maher, and I sure hope he wins this case, because I will be seriously discouraged if he doesn't!
What do you think?
