- I’ll Malik Obama has been working to keep his name in this election cycle, for better or for worse.
When it comes to the family of former President Barack Obama, there are seemingly no secrets to be kept. Everyone knows about Michelle, Malia and Sasha being the model of grace and class. We know about Michelle’s mom, who the former first lady credited with teaching her how to be an effective parent.
But one family member who hasn’t been heard from in a while is the first Black president’s older half-brother, Malik Obama, who has been on his grind lately making sure people remember his name in this election cycle, for better or for worse.
And after making himself available to right-wing sympathizing media in recent months, that grind has seemingly culminated in a single tweet that left nothing up to chance when it came to his political affiliations and who the 61-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen would like to see in the White House next year.
Malik Obama tweeted a photo of a $20 bill on Wednesday with the word “Trump” written on the back of a $20 bill and between two arrows that each pointed the 20 on the bottom corners. The only text that accompanied the tweet was the number, “2020.” Malia is in college and has a boyfriend. We know Sasha is all grown up now, too.
