Even mentioning Deez Nuts will get you discounts on airfare.

This Nuts supporter gave Chris Christie an earful when he asked GOP candidate and New Jersey governor Chris Christie if he was intimidated by Deez Nuts.

Despite his popularity, Mr. Nuts has already abdicated his campaign for the nomination and endorsed two candidates who probably have a little more experience than him. For the Democratic nomination Nuts has endorsed Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and for the Republican nomination he has endorsed Ohio governor John Kasich.
However once you gain such acclaim that Deez Nuts has achieved, people are bound to try to take you down a peg. There is already an attack ad scratching at Deez Nuts.
Deez Nuts is actually 15-year-old Brady Olson from Iowa who registered with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for a White House run back in July. It would be great to dissect Nuts’ candidacy because you’ll halve a ball, but he’s too young to be President of the United States. So for now we’ll just have to be entertained by Donald Trump.
