Well, This Is Awkward: Obama’s Half Brother to Be Trump’s Guest at Wednesday’s Debate

Malik Obama and the president have the same father but different mothers. Malik Obama voiced his support for Donald Trump in July and will be one of the GOP presidential nominee’s guests during the final debate.

First it was Bill Clinton’s accusers; now Donald Trump is bringing President Barack Obama’s half brother, Malik, to the final presidential debate Wednesday.

It’s unclear what Trump hopes to accomplish by bringing Obama’s brother, who has dual citizenship and spends most of his time in Kenya and some time in Washington D.C., to the debate, the New York Post reports.

But we all know how the Donald loves his tricks.

Before the last debate, Trump hosted a Facebook Live with several women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct.

For this debate, Trump will also be bringing Patricia Smith, the mother of Benghazi, Libya, attack victim Sean Smith, who has accused Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton of “murdering” her son.

Hillary Clinton doesn’t plan to be upstaged by Trump; she has invited two true billionaires, an obvious knock at the Donald’s net worth, to be her guests during Wednesday’s third and final presidential debate. Joining Clinton will be Meg Whitman, the Hewlett-Packard CEO and former Republican California gubernatorial candidate; and Mark Cuban, the outspoken billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, who has been critical of Trump on social media.

Whitman, a longtime Republican, endorsed Clinton earlier this year, and Cuban has called Trump “[bats–t] crazy.”

“Trump scares me,” Cuban said after speaking at an event. “Donald, initially, I really hoped he would be something different, that as a businessperson, I thought there was an opportunity there. But then he went off the reservation and went [bats–t] crazy.”

Back in July, Malik Obama voiced his support for Trump, noting that he couldn’t wait to meet the Republican nominee.

“I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik,” Trump said Wednesday, CNN reports. “He gets it far better than his brother.”

Malik Obama has the same father as the president but a different mother, CNN reports.

This should be interesting.
