If you ask us, this whole story is bananas.

According to The Wrap, Donald Trump is threatening to sue Bill Maher after proving he's not related to, ahem, an orangutan. 

In January, Bill Maher made fun of the host of Celebrity Apprentice for scrutinizing President Obama's birth certificate by joking that The Donald was the result of sex between a person and an orangutan. We take it this wasn't meant as a compliment.

Bill went so far as to tell Jay Leno that he would donate $5 million to charity if Donald could prove he wasn't actually related to a great ape.

Well, Donald quickly produced his birth certificate and told Bill to write a check, but to no avail.

Now, almost a month later, Donald tells Fox & Friends on February 4 that he is suing Bill to force him to pay the $5 million to charity. 

"I provided the information," Donald says of his birth certificate. "He didn’t pay. So today I sue Bill Maher for $5 million for charity."

But wasn't Bill just, y'know, joking? "I don't think he was joking," Donald claims. "He said it with venom."

The one thing we know for sure is that if Donald sees a way to get himself into the spotlight, he'll take it.
