Because rest assured, there are parallels.

After waxing poetic about Justin's silky smooth chest ("You just wanna wrap it around yourself like a kimono!"), Stewart dropped the details on Bieber, who has been accused of causing $20,000 in damage to a neighbor's home. He asked the question we've all been wondering:

In reference to Bieber's pal Lil Za getting arrested for drug possession, Stewart quipped, "Boy, isn't that the American system of justice? Wow, how about that. White guy breaks some shit. Cops come and take the black guy away."

Stewart then turned focus to Congress' proposed sanctions bill against Iran, which threatens to derail proposed diplomatic relations with the Middle Eastern country.

"[For] the first time in decades, we would have diplomatic relations with Iran and a means of ensuring that they would not obtain a nuclear weapon. Just so long as nobody comes in and figuratively throws eggs at the entire thing," Stewart noted.

"And there you have it, that is how these two stories are related. Congress is the Justin Bieber of our government. Throwing away, for no reason whatsoever, throwing away a tremendous opportunity because of immaturity and a lack of self-control," he quipped.


In other Justin news, he recently broke his Twitter silence by reminding his fans of where his career began:
There have also been rumors that he faces deportation if convicted of felony vandalism, but that's completely untrue. It's more likely that he's damaging his reputation with fans than his immigration status.
