Obama siblings exchange on twitter

The rivalry between the Obama siblings seems to be widening. Malik Obama is now accusing his brother, the former US President Barrack Obama of being fake.

Through social media, the eldest Obama has posted a birth certificate alleging it belongs to the former president.

According to the birth certificate, Barrack was born in Kenya in 1961 at the Coast General hospital in Mombasa, an allegation that would make the 44th POTUS ineligible for that seat.

As per Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution, for one to be eligible to run for the presidential seat of the United States, one must be a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, be above age of thirty five years and been resident within the United States for fourteen Years.

In 2011, Donald J. Trump began to question President Obama’s birthplace aloud in television interviews bringing a rise to the term “Bitherism” but five years later he put a rest to the conspiracy and finally accepted that Barrack was born in the US.

According to The Atlantic an American publisher, “bitherism” is the baseless belief that the 44th president of the United States was born abroad and was therefore ineligible for the presidency and also was a secret Muslim planning to undermine America from within.

The matter surfaced in the 2008 Democratic primary that was allegedly circulated by frustrated Hillary Clinton supporters.

The same year, Orly Taitz, a Moldovan-American political conspiracy theorist, released a purported Kenyan birth certificate which she said belonged to Barrack but was later fact checked and found to be fake.

A decade later, Malik Obama has now resurfaced with another birth certificate and one of his reasons is Barrack did not support him.

“We loved him with all our hearts but he turned his back on us and poured humiliation upon humiliation on us… When he had nothing and came to Kenya we welcomed him with open arms and shared with him...”

But his sister Auma Obama, has clapped back and now wants the eldest brother to get his act together.

“So blindly consumed by #jealousy and #bitterness that you will go to any length to slander your younger brother’s name - literally! Just because he has outshone you in EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of his life. Seek relevance elsewhere big brother!”

She further added; “Long before he even knew he would be president my little brother visited his fatherland and was embraced by all!!! Malik you took center stage in welcoming him!!!”
According to the scanned live birth certificate that was released by Barracks’ presidential campaign team to counter the “bitherism” theorists, it states that he was born on August 4, in Honolulu, Hawaii at 7:24pm to an American mother of European descent and an African father.
The fierce battle has attracted the embattled former presidential hopeful Miguna Miguna who now wants Malik to let his brother be.

“Chief: Let your brother live in peace. Stop helping @realDonaldTrump- a white supremacist - smear your brother in the mud.”
