Malik Obama, the half brother of former President Barack Obama, threw out a wild idea of running against Ilhan Omar in Minnesota and Twitter is buzzing.

If you’re not familiar with Malik, he’s quite the opposite of President Obama and is a vocal critic of his brother’s politics and policies.
A rising tide lifts all boats but not in @BarackObama's case. Buys a $15 million home and tells me to my face that he's broke. Slick as shit folks.

He also supports President Trump and voted for him in 2016.
Logistics MIGHT be an issue for Obama, if he’s serious. While he is a naturalized American citizen, his primary residence is in Kenya, so he’d have quite the move if he decided to run against Omar.
The buzz is real on the internet though.
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

As a Trump supporter, I would like to see you run and succeed. Do it. Good luck.
