You may find yourself frustrated with Canada's political system, but Deez Nuts loves it.
In a rare on-camera interview with an Iowa TV station, the young man behind Deez Nuts professed his appreciation for Canada's multi-party politics.
He said his independent candidacy will "hopefully pave the way for more than a two-party system."
"Canada, they had a debate for their prime minister elections and they had a four-party debate."
As a high school sophomore, Deez Nuts is not actually legally allowed to become president. But let's not let the ~rules~ ruin this.
“Joke or not, Deez Nuts takes his campaign seriously," said KTIV's Sam Curtis. He's launched a website with his platform and t-shirts featuring a delightful slogan.
About to start the new school year, Deez Nuts said he "doesn't want this to be a distraction."
"It begs the question, is there a first lady?" asked host Robert Lowe, even if it absolutely does not.
"At this time he says no," replied Curtis.
