Social media atwitter: History channel’s Satan looks like Obama

- The Washington Times - Monday, March 18, 2013

Sunday night's showing of "The Bible" on the History channel has set social media sites on fire, as bloggers and tweeters can't help but notice: The actor who's portraying Satan bears a striking resemblance to President Obama.

Glenn Beck was one of the first to notice the similarities during a preview of the show a few weeks ago, The Blaze reported. But after Sunday's showing, plenty more took notice — and took to social media sites to voice their opinion.

"Oh my word ... watching The History Channel's The Bible," tweeted one. "Does Satan look familiar to anyone else?"

And another: "Just caught 5 minutes of #TheBible on History Channel. ... Satan looks like Obama – say what?!"

And one more: "Oh my! Watching the Bible on history channel. Satan looks like Obama. Whoever played Satan looks like Obama ... Creepy."

Some may see this as a tit for tat in television politics.

HBO took fire more than a year ago when it was caught using a theatrical head of President George W. Bush in its "Game of Thrones" series. The scene? A lineup of heads planted on spikes.
