The 2016 Presidential Race might come down between Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and…Deez Nuts? The unknown ‘Deez’ became a viral hit after scoring high in a North Carolina poll. So, who is Deez Nuts? Here is all the info on the candidate and the political mastermind behind him.
Better watch out, Donald Trump, 69, Scott Walker, 47, and Mike Huckabee, 59, because Deez Nuts wants to be the next President of the United States. America went crazy for Deez Nuts, the newest and hottest candidate in the 2016 Presidential election. But, who is behind this rising political star? The answer probably won’t surprise you.
Deez Nuts entered the political stage on Aug. 19, when a Public Policy Poll revealed that Deez had a 6% favorability rating with North Carolina voters. Deez had similar numbers in both Minnesota and Iowa. In fact, 9% of North Carolina voters said they would vote for Deez instead of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump if those were the only three options. Unfortunately, Deez won’t be appearing at any debate anytime soon.
Sure, Deez Nuts might be the most popular Independent candidate since Jimmy McMillan of The Rent Is Too Damn High party, but sadly, he’s not real. Deez is the creation of Brady Olson, a 15-year-old boy from Iowa, reports the Daily Beast.
Brady filed the appropriate Federal Election Commission form to start Candidate Nuts’s 2016 Campaign on July 26. “When I heard about the Limberbutt McCubbins story, I realized I could,” Brady said. Candidate McCubbins, by the way, is a cat from Louisville, Kentucky, who’s running for the “demo-cat” nomination, reports NPR. Brady starting Deez’s campaign was “half trying to break the two party system” and “half [expressing] frustration with the front runners,” according to his interview with RollingStone.
“I really didn’t want to see Clinton, Bush or Trump in the White House, so, I guess I’m trying to put up a fight,” Brady said. The high school sophomore also pointed out a glaring problem in American politics. “The fact that if I can fill out a form so vague that it doesn’t include your age, or the fact that all get accepted even if they’re only partially filled, anyone can run [for president,]” said Brady.
While Deez is Independent, Brady identifies as a Libertarian. He would either vote for Bernie Sanders or Libertarian Gary Johnson, if he were legally eligible to vote. As for Deez, the candidate has some stiff competition. Other independents running in the 2016 election include Sydneys Voluptuous Buttocks, Buddy The Cat and HRM Caesar St Augustine De Buonaparte.
Would you vote for Candidate Deez Nuts in the 2016 election, HollywoodLifers? Who do you want to see as the next President?
