Is Satan Supposed To Look Exactly Like Obama On History’s ‘The Bible?’

Obama as The Devil?

If you were watching The Bible on the History Channel the other day, you may have noticed that the actor playing Satan looks an awful lot like our commander in chief. If so, you’re definitely not the only one.

Created by Roma Downey and her husband, reality TV demigod Mark Burnett, The Bible adapts Christianity’s holy book from Genesis to Revelation in “one grand narrative” within five two-hour parts.

In an op-ed for The Huffington Post, the couple wrote of their intentions, “we wanted to show how the Old Testament connects seamlessly to the New Testament. How they are one sweeping story with one grand, overriding message: God loves each one of us as if we were the only person in all the world to love.”

But is the idea that President Barack Obama is the Devil sort of a bonus message?

Satan, a.k.a. The Bible‘s “Big Bad,” showed up on Sunday night, with hundreds of viewers on Twitter noting the actor’s resemblance to President Obama. Actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni looks pretty much exactly like Obama, albeit a slightly older version, so his casting as the Devil seemed like a political statement to some viewers.

It’s not like TV shows are opposed to doing such a thing. Remember Game of Thrones? The now-infamous impalement of George W. Bush’s head on a spike?

What do you think? Is Satan supposed to look exactly like Obama on History’s The Bible? Sound off below our gallery of famous depictions of The Devil:

    I don't really see the resemblance.

    Not all black men look alike.

    Satan tried to bribe Jesus when Jesus was at a weak point and hungry with bread. Obama said "people are hungry for change" at a point America was at a weak point. Satan always uses the same tricks. Obama is doing the devils work by leading people to disobey Jesus with his bribes and putting sin on a pedestal. Wake up people…Gods trying to open your eyes. if you don't understand why Jesus said "man doesn't live on bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God" you will be led astray by the bread of deceit. Satan means opposite. Obama is leading people in opposition to Jesus. Charity isn't mandated as Obamas fair share message is extortion in Gods book. As one of the commandments teaches "thou shall not covet" Obamas exploiting peoples covetous nature.
    John 8:44
    You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

    Alexander you are looking like an ignorant redneck with you statement. Jesus wanted the poor to have food and medicine, just like the President. Instead you twist everything to look like people are being greedy and jealous to want a good job, food and medicine for your family.
