Deez Nuts Will Have to Pull Out of Presidential Race

After becoming a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, the independent candidate has been identified as ineligible to run

Sadly, Deez Nuts will have to pull out of the U.S. presidential race prematurely.

The independent candidate from Iowa who’s currently polling at 9 percent in North Carolina has been found. But according to The Daily Beast, he’s a 15-year-old high school student named Brady Olson.

The teenager was apparently inspired to declare his candidacy when he learned of a Louisiana cat that had joined the race. “When I heard about the Limberbutt McCubbins story, I realized I could,” Olson told The Daily Beast.

Olson filed his official paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on July 26 as Deez Nuts. According to a Public Policy Polling survey released Wednesday, one in 10 North Carolina voters would pick for him in a race between Nuts, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton.

After he started polling at 8 percent in Iowa and  9 percent in North Carolina, Deez Nuts began to trend worldwide on Twitter.

But according to the U.S. Constitution, the presidency and vice presidency are restricted to native-born U.S. citizens at least 35 years of age.

Despite the constitutional obstacles, Olson insisted that he is not giving up on his dream to become the first 15-year-old POTUS.

“The next step is to get some party nominations, like the Minnesota Independence Party or the Modern Whig Party,” Olson said. “It would also be great to find a VP, preferably McCubbins because the Nuts/McCubbins ticket sounds amazing.”
