A supposed resemblance between President Barack Obama and an actor who plays the Devil on HISTORY's new series The Bible is causing controversy.

Conservative commentator Glenn Beck was among the first to take to Twitter to note similarities between Obama and Mohamen Mehdi Ouzaani:

  • The Bible Devil
  • Prez Obama

A slew of tweets, Facebook posts, commentaries and other responses soon followed, many from Obama supporters who weren't pleased by the comparison.

Beck, among others, say that Satan from The Bible miniseries - a monster hit for HISTORY with over 10 million viewers - resembles an older version of Obama.

Executive produced by Survivor and Apprentice creator Mark Burnett, the show and its reps had no comment on the matter, nor has the network.

What do you think? Do you see a resemblance? If so, do you think it was intentionally done by the producers? And regardless, does it even matter?

UPDATE: HISTORY and the show's executive producers have issued a statement:

Michelle Obama has been hacked in an alarming breach of security by unknown cyber-assailants who have disclosed the First Lady's financial information.

The hackers also obtained and published financial info on Beyonce, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian and other celebrities.

Unhappy FLOTUS

A website run by the hackers has posted Michelle's credit report, social security number, phone numbers, banking and mortgage info and credit card details.

The website also hacked V.P. Joe Biden's history, but the info they were able to obtain was extremely limited in his case (unlike Michelle Obama's).

The motives of the hacker(s) could be more than sporting.

Eccentric NBA legend Dennis Rodman is already planning his next trip to North Korea, according to reports, with his sights set on much more than basketball.

The star wants to broker a peace deal between the United States and the (erroneously named) Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Seriously.

Obama, Rodman, Kim

Rodman's rep says that despite a storied career - Basketball Hall of Fame, five titles, records, awards - a U.S./N.K. peace deal would be his "greatest achievement."

Whoa whoa. Slow down. Guy is the career rebounds per game leader in the NBA since 1973. He once averaged 18 per game in a season! Insane.

President Barack Obama had a big day Monday, being sworn in, delivering a speech before 800,000 strong and probably getting some from Michelle Obama.

Not everyone descended on D.C. to celebrate the man, however.

Westboro Baptist Church braved the weather and the pro-Obama crowds to protest the event, and the administration, for its tolerance of homosexuality.

What's the crux of their argument? What's their prognosis for a second Obama term? How do they differ from thousands of others of churches out there?

Here's what one interviewer learned about WBC at the event:

President Barack Obama has been named Time's 2012 Person of the Year.

The publication said, in announcing its choice for the annual cover story:

2012 Person of the Year

"We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Barack Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America."

"In 2012, he found and forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union."

A visibly distraught U.S. President Barack Obama fought back tears as he addressed the media following this morning's Connecticut school shooting tragedy.

“The majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old,” Obama said during a national TV address.

After pausing to compose himself for five whole seconds, he added, “They had their entire lives ahead of them: birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.”

Then the president wiped the corner of his eye.

The massacre allegedly carried out by Adam Lanza (not his brother, Ryan Lanza, as was first reported) is enough to make anyone sick, but especially parents of young kids.

President Barack Obama is a kind of a big deal in Kenya.

He was, after all, born there ... if you ask Ted Nugent.

In all seriousness, the recently reelected, Hawaiian-born Obama is half-Kenyan, as his father, the late Barack Obama Sr., was born and buried in East Africa.

His ties run deep, and Tuesday, Millicent Awuor was so inspired that she named her newborn son Barack Obama ... and his twin, born minutes later, Mitt Romney.

Obama, Romney Twins

"I named the first twin Barack and the second one Mitt," Awuor says of her bipartisan approach.

Still, she "stayed up all night and danced with joy" when she learned the 2012 election results.

Barack Obama: Natural-born U.S. citizen?

In 2000, Al Gore earned 500,000 more votes than George W. Bush, yet lost the presidency.

In 2004, Bush won by 3 million, but 60,000 more Ohio votes would've elected John Kerry.

In 2012, a close election could easily result in a winner who receives fewer votes ... again.

The Electoral College system, everybody!

Final Pre-Election Map

America's complex way of choosing a president confuses many voters. It's easy to see why:

In the wake of unprecedented damage to various areas of New York, President Barack Obama has ordered federal aid for the region in order to help quell the tragic mess of Hurricane Sandy.

As of 6 a.m. EST, here is the latest update to the storm:

  • There has been an explosion (above) at a Con Edison Plant at East 14th and FDR Drive.
  • Subways remain out of order in NYC.
  • There have been 83 total deaths.
  • Over 50 homes burned to the ground in a single six-alarm fire in Queens.
  • Over 7.5 million people are without power around the country.

Downgraded from a hurricane to an "extratropical cycle," Sandy is now moving westward across Pennsylvania.

Please be safe out there, everyone. This is a big deal, Lindsay Lohan.

A news agency in Iran has published a report claiming that white, rural Americans would rather vote for its own head of state, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, than U.S. President Barack Obama.

Slight problem: The report was by the Onion.

Onion Obama Story

Quoting The Onion, Iranian news agency Fars (more like FARCE, are we right?!) cites a fake poll that says 77 percent would rather have a drink or watch sports with Ahmadinejad.

A made-up West Virginia resident is quoted as saying: "I like him better."
