Obama’s Half-Brother Goes Full MAGA – Announces Endorsement for GOP Candidate

Published on

Doug Mastriano, the Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, has gained the support of Barack Obama’s half-brother.

Malik Obama offered his support for Mastriano in a tweet on Sunday.

Former President Donald Trump has endorsed Mastriano in one of the most competitive contests for governor in November’s midterm elections.

During his 2020 campaign for Pennsylvania Attorney General, Mastriano’s Democratic opponent Josh Shapiro praised Barack Obama’s support in an advertisement.

According to the New York Post, Malik Obama is the son of Barack Obama Sr., the 44th president’s father.

This is not the first time Malik and his half-brother have had political differences.

Malik declared a surprising public endorsement of Donald Trump for president in 2016, noting several policy differences with his brother.

According to The Guardian, in his endorsement, the dual Kenyan-American citizen opposed Democratic support for homosexual marriage.

Malik also attacked his brother for his role in the 2011 regime change operation that ousted Muammar Gaddafi from office in Libya.

In a 2016 interview with Sean Hannity, the older Obama discussed his political differences with his younger half-brother. After becoming president in 2009, according to Malik, Barack grew distant from his extended family.
