In 2014, photos of President Obama’s half-brother Malik dressed in pro-Hamas garb were published in the Daily Mail — photos which are now going viral on Twitter thanks to Donald Trump’s plan to have Malik Obama attend the third and final debate tonight in Las Vegas:

CNN’s Brian Stelter just happened to be on the same airplane as Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon with Bannon promising additional surprise guests at tonight’s event. We trust there won’t be more Hamas supporters, right?

Malik came out as a Trump supporter in July, prompting this tweet from the GOP nominee:
Wow, President Obama's brother, Malik, just announced that he is voting for me. Was probably treated badly by president-like everybody else!

We’ll have to see now if Malik actually makes it to the debate or not. We’re guessing not.
