Former President Obama’s half brother, Malik Obama, ripped his brother Tuesday via Twitter for his “complete hypocrisy” over DACA.
Malik tweeted: “Barack Obama calls President Trumps decision on ending DACA ‘cruel’. Complete Hypocrisy!Why didn’t he lift a single finger to help his Aunt?”

Zeituni Onyango was the Aunt Malik tweeted about.
According to USA Today, Onyango passed away in 2014. Obama distanced himself so far away from her because of her being in the country illegally, he even returned a $260 campaign contribution she made to him.
USA Today reports:
Attorney Margaret Wong, who represented the president’s aunt in her immigration case, said Zeituni Onyango died Tuesday in a Boston rehabilitation center.
Wong said that Onyango, 61, who was the half sister of the president’s father, was being treated for cancer and respiratory problems.
Onyango moved to the U.S. from Kenya in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. But she remained in the country illegally, living in Boston public housing.
Her immigration case made headlines before Obama’s election in 2008.
Wong, who referred to Onyango as “Auntie,” recalled her as “a fine, tall, elegant woman who was very good with computers,”
“After her vilification by the press during the President’s campaign, she fought hard for her legal status,” Wong said in a statement. “She loved to travel, mostly by train, and enjoyed taking pictures everywhere she went.”
She was eventually granted asylum in 2010 by a judge who said she could be in danger if she returned to Kenya because of her relationship with Obama.
Onyango visited the president’s family in Chicago on a tourist visa at Obama’s invitation in the late 1990s.
She made about $260 in contributions to the president’s 2008 presidential run, but the campaign returned the money after they learned she was living in the U.S. illegally.
The New York Times reported the former President skipped his Aunt’s funeral, opting for a round of golf instead.
The New York Times reports:
After Zeituni Onyango, the woman President Obama once called Auntie, died in a South Boston nursing home this month, her closest relatives gathered her belongings at her nearby apartment. There, framed photographs of her with the president covered the wall.
Weeping before a polished wood coffin at her wake this past Saturday, they described Ms. Onyango, the half sister of the president’s father, as “the spirit of the Obama family” and talked about raising money to send her body back to Kenya. Mr. Obama helped pay funeral expenses and sent a condolence note, Ms. Onyango’s family members said, but the president did not attend, as he was golfing.
Watch Obama argue against executive amnesty 22 times, said it was unconstitutional and illegal, but did it anyway.
Obama can break the law for people he doesn’t know, but distanced himself far away from his own aunt and would not help her gain asylum?
It sounds like he only does what is politically in his favor at the time and really doesn’t care since he couldn’t help his own Aunt because he was afraid it would negatively impact his campaign at the time.
