Ted Cruz Compares Himself to Justin Bieber

What do Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Justin Bieber have in common? You no longer have to rely on late night comedians for the answer to that question. Cruz himself made a self-deprecating Bieber joke during a speech to conservatives Thursday.

Cruz remarked that when he was called a “celebrity” during his introduction he worried that a Justin Bieber comparison was coming. Since that didn’t happen, he decided to do it himself. “I would note that Justin Bieber and I were both born in Canada,” he said. “And again, there are more than a few of my colleagues who wish the both of us would self-deport.”

The prospect of either Cruz or Bieber self-deporting back to Canada seems unlikely, but the senator is likely right that many people would like to see both of them gone. But what if you had to chose one? Take the poll below and let us know who you would choose.
