Senator Wants Justin Bieber Deported

Sen. Mark Warner is not a Belieber. 

Although the whitehouse.gov petition to deport Canadian pop star Justin Bieber has already surpassed the 100,000-signature threshold that triggers a White House response, the Democrat from Virginia told FM 99 he wants to add his name. "As a dad with three daughters, is there some place I can sign?"

 

Then Warner followed up with this gem of a tweet:

Wanting to kick Bieber out of the country is a safe move for any politician running for reelection in 2014, as Warner is, given how much voting-age Americans don't like the guy. Check out the 2013, pre-DUI survey results from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling: 54 percent of Americans said they had an unfavorable view of Bieber. Not only that, but his unpopularity was universal across party lines. Hating on Justin Bieber may be the bridge that unites this divided country.
