Actress Mia Farrow likened Obama to Jesus Christ by calling former CIA director Leon Panetta “another Judas” for his recent criticism of the president.
Farrow has since deleted her comment on Twitter after multiple people pointed out she was portraying Obama as Jesus in her attack on Panetta last night.

“Judas? As in you think of Obama as Jesus Christ?” Twitter user makeyourmove33 asked the actress.
She then attempted to cover her tracks by suggesting that Panetta was a “Benedict Arnold” instead, but by then it was too late.
Panetta, who served as the CIA Director from 2009 to 2011, recently said Obama had “given up” on his presidency.
“In order for presidents to succeed, they cannot just, when they run into problems, step back and give up,” he said on MSNBC.
Of course, this comment would enrage Obama supporters such as Farrow who have elevated Obama to a “messiah” status and are thus committed to a cult-like defense of the president.
“First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama,” Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx told attendees at BET’s Soul Train Awards back in 2012.
Similarly, a few years earlier, when Obama began his presidency, other celebrities such as actor Jason Bateman and rapper Sean P. “Diddy” Combs pledged their servitude to the president.
“The Presidential Pledge is a platform for people across the nation and throughout the world to make a first person commitment of service to our new President, articulating a specific intent or action to become an agent of positive change,” Ashton Kutcher said.
Unfortunately, these celebrities have influenced many others to also worship Obama.
“Barack Obama, thank you for doing everything and all the kind stuff… Thank you for all the stuff you helped us with,” a child named Steven said in a prayer to Obama. “You are good, Barack Obama.”
“You are great and when you get older you will be able to do great things. Love, Steven.”
And school teachers in Las Vegas, Nev., forced students to pledge allegiance to a huge, projected image of the president.
One father, whose wife does volunteer work for his son’s teacher, said his wife was “taken aback” by the students pledging to the image of Obama which stared straight at them with no facial expressions.
“What is worse is she said that all of the kids in each class faced Obama instead of the flag that hangs in the corner,” he wrote.
Obama doesn’t seem to have any problem with any of this, however, because earlier this year he implicitly compared himself to Jesus.
