On Friday, Malik Obama, the estranged half-brother of former president Barack Obama, went to Twitter to ask his followers if he should run against Ilhan Omar for Congress.

It is not clear if this is a serious question, or if Malik Obama is actually considering a run for Congress in Minnesota. He is a naturalized U.S. citizen and a resident of Kenya, where, according to the Washington Post, he has between 3 and 12 wives. It seems unlikely that Malik Obama would relocate to Minnesota’s 5th District to run for Congress. PJ Media has reached out to him for comment, but we did not receive a response by publishing time.
While his intentions aren’t yet clear, his followers have a wide range of opinions on the issue.
Or better yet against AOC .

Do it and I will move to MN so I can vote for you and will volunteer 8 hours a week to your campaign

Malik Obama has been publicly critical of his famous half-brother. He endorsed Donald Trump in 2016, “because he speaks from the heart.” In May, Malik Obama appeared on “The Hidden Truth Show with Jim Breslo,” revealing new details about Barack Obama, and how their relationship deteriorated over the years.
