Does President Obama make an unexpected cameo in History's 'The Bible' series?

American presidents just cannot catch a break on television series these days.

A year or so ago, Game of Thrones came under some fire when it was revealed that a head on a spike in an episode resembled that of former President George W. Bush. Sales of the first season of the show on home video were actually halted for some time so that the offending face could be altered.

While some Democrats likely found that funny, they probably are not laughing today. On History Channel's new 10-part miniseries The Bible, a character on the show strikes an uncanny resemblance to current President Barack Obama. Oh, did I forget to mention that the character, played by actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, is Satan?

Here is a picture. Do you see it?

The resemblance was pointed out on Twitter by Glenn Beck (I know, you are stunned). Beck called the series "one of the most important shows in decades."

The series is a collaboration between Mark Burnett and his wife Roma Downey. Burnett has donated to Obama in the past, but also has worked with Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. Downey does not identify with a party and instead talks about her devout Catholic faith.

I cannot imagine this is on purpose, but somebody probably should have caught this, I think.
