'The Bible' creators, History Channel deny show's Satan resembles President Obama
 
The creators of the miniseries "The Bible" and the network that airs it are denying reports that the character Satan intentionally resembles President Barack Obama.
The couple behind the show, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, dismissed what they called “foolish” reports that their show’s villain looked like the President.

“This is utter nonsense. The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouzaani, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor,” they said in a statement sent to FOX 411. “He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics– including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”
Downey added: "Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our President, who is a fellow Christian. False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of The Bible.”
The History Channel set out to put an end to the rumors, saying the show aims to feature “a diverse cast of respected actors.”
“History channel has the highest respect for President Obama,” the network said in a statement. “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.”
After Sunday night’s episode, scores of viewers took to Twitter to note a resemblance between the show’s Satan character and President Barack Obama.
“That guy playing Satan in ‘the Bible’… does resemble the president,” one user wrote. “I would hope it wasn't intentional, but who knows.”
Another quipped: “Did anyone else notice that Satan spoke like Nacho Libre and looked just like Obama? #thebible”

... other then that wart by his nose being on the actor's chin, the Obamster does kinda' look like that devil.

If the shoe fits ... what I really want to hear is the Nacho Libre audio, :lol:.

I thought they were atheists? No God means no Satan thus Obama looks like no one ...

Unless of course liberals want a bill passed that Satan can not look like Obama linking church and state?

I find the resemblence a bit disturbing in light of the fact the actor is Moroccan and the 'birther' controversy ... for a guy supposedly born in Canada/Hawaii, the Obamster sure looks Moroccan. Has anyone notified Donald Trump about this?

I was watching The Bible Sunday when that scene with Jesus and Satan came on. I just about fell out of my chair. I saw the resemblance immediately. I couldn't believe it.

Just so we are on the same page, is Obama Moroccan, or are we saying Hades is located in Morocco?

What? That he's a Christian or that they have nothing but respect and love for him?

Maybe both, but definitely the part about him being Christian.
