Barack Obama’s half-brother Malik Obama is stealing the headlines from the Democratic National Convention as he spoke candidly to reporters. Malik was the best man for his brother’s wedding to Michelle, and the Kenyan-born man is speaking out about Barack’s presidency. Registered to vote in Maryland, Malik just revealed who he is supporting in the presidential election, and it’s making many politicians freak out.
Barack Obama’s older brother Malik will vote for Donald Trump. Malik and Barack share a father, but they have different mothers.
[Malik] Obama, 58, a longtime Democrat, said his “deep disappointment” in his brother Barack’s administration has led him to recently switch allegiance to “the party of Lincoln.” The last straw, he said, came earlier this month when FBI Director James Comey recommended not prosecuting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of a private e-mail servers while secretary of state.

What is ironic is that Malik Obama was best buddies with Gaddafi, who was ultimately killed after the Arab Spring revolt spread to Libya. Malik blames Barack and Hillary Clinton for his death and the mess in the Middle East.
“I still feel that getting rid of Gaddafi, didn’t make things any better in Libya,” he said. “My brother and the secretary of state disappointed me in that regard.” As Donald Trump pointed out, Hillary’s handling of the Middle East has led not only to the Islamic State but also a complete destabilization of the whole region.
Malik also says he changed from a Democrat to Republican because of same-sex marriage. “I feel like a Republican now because they don’t stand for same-sex marriage, and that appeals to me,” he said.
Malik was under fire from the press in 2011 when he wed his third wife who was only in her teens. After that marriage, Barack distanced himself from his brother because he didn’t want any bad press.
When Malik Obama tried to bring prosperity to the Kenyan village where their father grew up by starting the Barack H. Obama Foundation, named after their father, Barack turned his back and would not lift a finger to help the African village.
“My brother didn’t help me at all,” said Malik. “He wanted me to shut it down when I set it up. He hasn’t supported me at all.”
When it comes to Donald Trump, Malik is voting for him because he believes he is by far the best choice for his adopted country. “I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart,” he said. “Make America Great Again is a great slogan. I would like to meet him.”
Malik Obama proudly wears the “Make America Great Again” hat and seems to be ready to stick it to Barack and Hillary in any way he can. There is nothing like a family feud, and Malik is making it known that his brother did a terrible job as president and that Hillary is a criminal. He is one Obama that is telling the truth, and that is a huge change from the Obama we have in the White House.
