"Anyone else think the Devil in 'The Bible' Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?" Beck tweeted Saturday along with a photo of Mehdi Ouzaani is an undeniably Obama-like pose.

Two days earlier, Beck was even more direct.

"Does satan look EXACTLY like Obama?" he tweeted. "Yes!"

Not surprisingly, Beck also praised on the series.

"Best episode yet this Sunday. One of the most important shows in decades," Beck wrote.

But twitter user Jeff Grub isn't buying it.

"This is a joke, right?" he wrote in response to Beck's tweet. "It's really hard to tell, but you have to be joking."

"You mean, like...black?" asked Rus McLaughlin.

User Sauerkraut raised a different issue.

"With a little makeup, the satan on the history channel program looks very much like @glennbeck just a little thinner.

"No, Glenn. No one thinks that. At all," tweeted Je m'amusebarf in response to Beck's Saturday Mehdi Ouzaani photo post.

The tweet prompted the first positive Beck received for the comparison, after over a dozen responses on Twitter.

"I do," wrote Suzanne Grable.

Twitter user @hal2012 seconded Grable's thoughts on the Mehdi Ouzaani and President Obama resemblance controversy.

"Yes French moron, everyone with a brain can see that," he wrote. "Now go f.o. somewhere."
