Former President Barack Obama’s half-brother Malik Obama is again lobbing insults at his sibling, calling him ‘cold and ruthless’ in a recent interview.
Malik, 62, spoke to the New York Post via Skype from his home in the Kenyan village of Nyang’oma Kogelo for an interview published on Saturday to promote his new book, Big Bad Brother From Kenya.
‘He got rich and became a snob,’ Malik said. ‘What I saw was he was the kind of person that wants people to worship him. He needs to be worshiped and I don’t do that. I am his older brother so I don’t do that.’
Unsurprisingly, Malik is supporting President Donald Trump re-election in November, after gaining fame in 2016 for siding with Trump against Hillary Clinton.
‘[I’m] 110% still with Trump,’ he said. ‘He’s not fake. He tells us the way he sees it. He’s bold and fearless and he’s tough.’
He also mocked the Democratic nominee Joe Biden as too old and feeble to win.
‘I don’t think he’s going to make it. His teeth are falling off,’ Malik laughed. ‘He looks like he’s going to drop dead.’
Malik claimed that he had spent the past 22 years writing his new book, which is 435 pages long and debuted quietly on Amazon on July 11.
Malik and Barack Obama share the same father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., a Kenyan economist who died in a car accident in 1982.
The two half-brothers first met in 1985, when Barack was 24, and they had a close relationship for years.
But the relationship soured after Barack was elected to the presidency, and disputes erupted over which Kenyan relatives would be invited to the inauguration, among other things.
