In an election season that has taken yet another bizarre turn—possibly one of the most bizarre yet—Republican Candidate Donald Trump says he is bringing President Obama’s half brother, Malik Obama, to the third and final debate in Las Vegas tonight.
Malik Obama, who said in July to the BBC that he would vote for Trump because he “comes across as a straightforward guy,” recently told the outlet, “I’m excited to be at the debate. Trump can make America great again.”

Malik Obama is an American citizen who has lived in Washington, D.C. since the mid-’80s. A Trump campaign aide confirmed to CNN that Malik will be at the debate.
CNN reports that Trump is also bringing Patricia Smith tonight. Smith is the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith, and has vocally blamed Hillary Clinton for the death of her son.
On the other side of the debate party, Clinton is bringing Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban—two billionaires supportive of her campaign.
At the second to last debate, Trump’s guests included three women who accused former President Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton’s husband, of sexual assault.
And the question still remains—what does President Obama’s brother have to do with Hillary Clinton?
