I need a phrase here to indicate an exasperated huff. Seriously the people who are comparing the figure of Satan in the television mini series The Bible to the President of the United States are just nuts.
One, I’ve watched the show. The actor cannot change the fact that he bears some facial similarities to the President, many people have the same facial features and it is fine to point that out, but are there no other people in the entire world who might look slightly like the president? Two, he was painted silver…silver people not brown, this was not make the devil look like the President it was make the devil look sinister; the hood, unnatural color, gauntness, etc were all there to heighten the unnatural feel of the Devil. Three, he was there to tempt Jesus, at no point did Satan offer anyone universal health care or promise to fix the economy if only they would worship him. Clearly he only resembled the President and was not a model for him. Maybe had they hired Reggie Brown, the number one presidential impersonator right now, you could make a case for something along the lines people are spouting, but they didn’t. They hired a Moroccan actor.
You cannot fault the actor for having facial features that are similar. Well, I suppose you can but is isn’t going to work, now you’re just trying to be divisive…or it is a really slow news day for the usual fluff so instead of covering some hard news you just make up some more fluff to distract the people from the real important issues of the day.
