MSNBC's Michael Eric Dyson Assures Viewers Obama is Not the Devil (Video)

| by Michael Allen

MSNBC guest host Michael Eric Dyson assured viewers last night that President Obama is not Satan after conservatives such as Glenn Beck compared the president to the devil from the History Channel's 'Bible' miniseries (video below).

On his Twitter account Sunday, Beck wrote that the Satan character "looks exactly" like President Obama.

“By this morning, ‘ObamaSatan’ was trending on Twitter,” Dyson said. “The History Channel released a statement calling it ‘unfortunate that anyone made this connection,’ but that hasn’t stopped right wing conspiracy sites from turning out delusional posts further comparing our President to the devil.”

“Let me get this straight, the devil is a man who fought to reform healthcare so people with preexisting conditions can’t be denied coverage, a man who’s set to end a decade of war, a man who’s fighting to raise [the] minimum wage to help America’s struggling workers, a man who puts the interests of the middle class ahead of the interests of the privileged? Sounds to me like some people need to get off the Internet and brush up on the good book.”
