Canadian troublemaker Justin Bieber ought to be thankful Sen. Mark Warner doesn’t have the final word on foreign relations.
Bieber has attracted a lot of heat lately thanks to a string of rather unsavory encounters, including physical altercations, a scrap with a neighbor and, most recently, a high-profile arrest involving driving under the influence in Miami.
When asked Tuesday by the hosts of WNOR’s “Rumble in the Morning” about the status of a populist petition to have the pot-smoking pop star deported (nearly a quarter of a million signatures and counting), the Virginia Democrat hinted that he’d gladly endorse the immigration crackdown.
“As a dad with three daughters, is there someplace I can sign?” Warner quipped.
Warner then doubled down on the deportation stance on social media.
“It’s true: I’m not a #Belieber,” he confessed to the twitterverse.
This marks the second time a local radio show has exposed a rift between the once-vanilla singer and Senate Democrats. The first beef was entirely of the Biebs’ creation, given that the one-time YouTube star threw shade at Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota for her pushback against the illegal streaming of copyrighted material online.
Bieber’s continuing antics have helped cement the case against him that non-fans have made to the administration.
“We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth,” more than 245,000 signatories have asserted via the “We the People” portal.
Of course, he may choose to leave on his own. TMZ insists his substance abuse problems have earned Bieber a top spot on a Homeland Security watch list.
