Of course it isn’t really Barack Hussein Obama, but the actor playing the role is a spitting image of him. Type casting? Freudian slip?
Perhaps not so coincidental is the actor playing Satan. His name is Mehdi Ouazzani and he’s from Morocco, a Muslim (just like Obama) most likely.
In CYA mode, the HISTORY Channel was quick to react:
“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.”
