Malik Obama is Barack Obama’s older half-brother. He used to live in Maryland and is registered to vote there, though he currently resides in Africa. He is the kind of immigrant Donald Trump likes — because as Malik told The New York Post he plans to travel back to Maryland in November to cast his U.S. ballot for Donald Trump.
Malik Obama claims to have been a very good friend of deposed Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi and he finds same-sex marriage abhorrent. Since the U.S. supported Gaddafi’s demise and the Democrats champion LGBT equality, it’s a hard platform for Malik, a former Democrat, to support. His own political ambitions haven’t panned out — in 2013 he lost a race for governor of Siaya, a Kenyan county. “Honestly, I’ll be happy when my brother is out of office,” he told the Post, “and I will finally be out of the limelight and be able to live like a human being.” Obama for Trump is the predictable Post headline. Malik Obama reportedly skipped all his classes in Staying Out of the Limelight 101.

Wow, President Obama’s brother, Malik, just announced that he is voting for me. Was probably treated badly by president-like everybody else!
