Malik provides a stunning take on the film, Dreams from My Real Father, stating “Frank Marshall Davis and Barack look alike” and adds that Barack does not look like his father. Malik says he would like a DNA test so the truth can come come out. Malik also states that Barack is “deceptive” and “has not been an honest man.” In the interview, Malik displays an early manuscript he helped edit of Barack’s book Dreams from My Father with a different title.
