Michelle Obama weighted on about what she’d do if her son were I troubled international singing star, say, Justin Bieber.

“I would pull him close. You know, I don’t know if it would be advice as much as action,” Obama said in a recent interview with Univision Radio host Enrique Santos. “I would be very present in his life right now. And I would be probably with him a good chunk of the time, just there to talk, to figure out what’s going on in his head, to figure out who’s in his life and who’s not, you know.”

And Obama is not the only one at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. being asked to weigh in on Bieber’s case.

A petition created on the White House’s “We the People” site calling for the government to deport Bieber and revoke his green card has garnered more than 250,000 signatures – far exceeding the 100,000 signature threshold to require an official response.

“That response will come I’m sure relatively soon,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said last week.
