Donald Trump has called Bill Maher’s bluff and sent the outspoken comic a copy of his birth certificate to prove he’s not the "spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan," Yahoo! News reports.

The real-estate mogul mailed off the document after Maher crowed he would donate $5 million to Trump’s favorite charities if he could definitely show he was not the product of bestiality.

In a letter obtained by Yahoo! News’ Dylan Stableford, Trump’s lawyer Scott Balber writes to Maher: “Attached hereto is a copy of Mr. Trump's birth certificate, demonstrating that he is the son of Fred Trump, not an orangutan."

“Please remit the $5 million to Mr. Trump immediately and he will ensure that the money be donated to the following five charities in equal amounts: Hurricane Sandy Victims, The Police Athletic League, The American Cancer Society, The March of Dimes, and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.’’

Editor's Note: Should Kerry and Hagel Be Confirmed?

Maher made his dare on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,’’ in response to Trump’s controversial “birther’’ campaign against President Barack Obama last year.

Trump charged that the commander-in-chief was not born in Hawaii and offered him a $5 million check to any charity of his choice in exchange for produce his college records.

Obama laughed off the challenge on his own “Tonight Show’’ appearance, telling Leno that his disagreements with Trump dated “back to when we were growing up together in Kenya."
