This presidential election season has really brought out the claws.

Although we realize that both candidates have went for the jugular (and we secretly enjoy it), Donald Trump just may be the captain of #TeamPetty.

It is being reported that the Republican presidential candidate is planning to bring out President Obama’s half brother, Malik Obama, at the third debate in Las Vegas.

We don’t know much about Malik, but we do know that he is a Kenyan-born American citizen who lives in DC when not in his native country. Shockingly, he is in full support of Donald Trump. He tells the NY post:

“I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart. ‘Make America Great Again’ is a great slogan. I would like to meet him.”

Overall we get a sense that Malik disagrees entirely with the political views of his brother, mentioning his disappointment with the killing of Libyan leader, Moammar Khadafy, under the Obama administration and his disagreement with the support of same-sex marriage.

Sibling rivalry, much? Either way, the levels of pettiness displayed here are astronomical and we can’t wait to tune in to see how this all unfolds. We have footage of Malik’s support if you’re in the mood for more pettiness:
