The History Channel on Monday denied that the resemblance between President Obama and an actor playing Satan in the channel's miniseries "The Bible" was intentional.
"HISTORY channel has the highest respect for President Obama," the network said in a press release. "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."
