Donald Trump has placed himself in the middle of another controversy involving a birth certificate—this time his own.
In a letter obtained by Yahoo News, the real estate mogul and de facto leader of last year’s “birther” movement against President Barack Obama sent a copy of his New York City birth certificate to comedian Bill Maher, who earlier this week made a Trump-like demand to see it.
We hate to see charity being used as a tool for vengeance in a personal rivalry, but worse things could certainly happen than $5 million being donated to help those in need. Anybody else wishing Bill Maher hadn’t given Donald Trump an excuse to stick around in the spotlight?

Talk show host Stephen Colbert is South Carolina voters’ preferred candidate to replace Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), according to a new poll by the Democratic Public Policy Polling.
The Comedy Central host, who’s openly lobbied for the seat, leads a field where the rest of the names are Republicans: 20 percent of voters want South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) to appoint him to DeMint’s seat when the senator resigns from Congress.
Some of the other names that Colbert was up against include Rep. Trey Gowdy (14%), former South Carolina First Lady Jenny Sanford (11%), former South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster (8%) and former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (8%). Don’t get us wrong. We know that Stephen has a snowball’s chance in hell of actually being tapped by Gov. Haley. This certainly won’t do anything to end rumors that the comedian is considering a run for the Senate seat in 2014 though.
