Kudos to Justin Bieber for doing what Monica Lewinsky and an entire Republican legislature couldn’t: completely deep-sixing America’s remaining respect for Bill Clinton. As per this tweet, Clinton not only deigned to respond to Bieber’s spraying a picture of him in the face and telling him to go fuck himself—the former leader of the free world also FORGAVE HIM AND OFFERED SOME FATHERLY ADVICE. What a #greatguy.

Specifically, as per Extra: “Clinton accepted Justin’s apology and told the pop star to be conscious of the friends he keeps and to focus on the good work he is doing.” We’re still trying to process the fact that Bill freaking Clinton opted to give a kid who drunkenly pissed in a mop bucket the time of day, so we won’t even attempt to understand what he meant by Bieber’s “good work.” Popularizing the term “swaggy”?

Oh, and apparently the restaurant kitchen from the video was Artichoke Basille’s Pizza. A humble suggestion for Bieber: The guy who had to clean up your urine deserves a public apology. The dude who’s too busy running a multimillion dollar foundation to give a crap about some hammered 19-year-old, no matter how famous he is? Not so much. A lot of people have said worse.
