Viral photo shows Obama with multiple ‘devil horns’ during speech on ISIS

HornsrnsA somewhat bizarre photo posted Thursday at the Drudge Report shows President Obama with what appears to be multiple “devil horns” coming out of his head during Wednesday night’s speech on ISIS. The effect is the result of Obama standing in front of curtains during the speech, but a number of websites commented on it.

Breitbart’s Debra Heine noted that for at least a couple of years into his presidency, Obama was pictured with his head framed in halos. The phenomenon, she added, was resurrected for the 2012 re-election campaign.

“These not so subtle attempts to deify the ‘Chicago Jesus’ began with photos of his campaign logo framing his head like a halo,” she added. “As soon as he was elected, he would be photographed with the presidential seal surrounding his head like a halo. Sometimes the lighting was such that Obama appeared to be glowing like some God-like, supernatural presence.”

The attempt to deify Obama wasn’t limited to special photographic effects. As we noted in 2010, a Newsweek magazine cover dubbed him “god of all things.” Others also portrayed Obama in godlike terms in an effort to advance the notion of some type of immortal presidency.

Writing at PJ Media, Myra Adams said she would not turn the picture into a caption contest. The reason? The picture, she explained, “scares the heck out of me, that’s why.”

Other conservative bloggers took note of the horns. Barry Secrest wondered if the picture was “[m]ere accident or cryptic message from beyond?”

A post at the American Thinker called it a case of Obama losing his “mojo.” Thomas Lifson said the staff that once placed Obama in front of Styrofoam columns “managed to pull a Gingrich on him,” referring to a Time magazine cover depicting the former House Speaker as Scrooge.

It’s not the first time Obama has been portrayed with devil-like horns. As we reported last September, Egyptian media portrayed Obama as Satan. That picture, however, was deliberate and not the result of curtains being draped in just the right place.
