We knew it all Along, Barack Obama is the Devil and the destroyer! LOL Seems the History Channel conforms our suspicions. So the obvious headline is – If Satan had a Son would he look like Barack Obama? #TheBible
Right-wing commentator and radio-host Glenn Beck first pointed out the eerie similarity on Saturday, tweeting, ‘Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?’
Others were simply struck by the clear physical match.
What the Hell? Satanic-looking Obama has many questioning eerie resemblance in History Channel broadcast
Twitter user @LeahMChristie also tweeted: “Oh my word…watching The History Channel’s The Bible..does Satan look familiar to anyone else?”
The show, produced by Mark Burnett, is a retelling of the stories from the scriptures in a scripted format, from Genesis to Revelation.
It airs on the History Channel in two-hour chunks on Sunday nights, with its finale scheduled for March 31, Easter Sunday.
Burnett has so far not commented on the controversy.

The History Channel Responds:
“HISTORY channel has the highest respect for President Obama. The series was produced with an international and diverse cast of respected actors. It’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection. HISTORY’s The Bible’ is meant to enlighten people on its rich stories and deep history.”
‘The Bible’ team says Obama-Satan similarity ‘utter nonsense’
The producers said, “This is utter nonsense. The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouzaani, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics — including Satanic characters — long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”
