WATCH: Larry Wilmore Catches a Little Deez Nuts Fever
Larry Wilmore, like the rest of America, is caught up in Deez Nutz fever. The third party candidate, who is said to actually a 15-year-old in Iowa running as a joke, is polling at 9 percent in North Carolina and 7 percent in Iowa and garnering more support than also-rans like Lindsey Graham.
"Deez Nuts is officially in the race", Wilmore announced. "Or should I say Deez Nuts are in the race?"
Nightly Show contributor Mike Yard was so caught up in the moment he left his current gig to join Deez Nuts' 2016 campaign in Iowa.
"Sometimes you just got to follow your heart," Yard said. "And in this case I just got to follow DEEZ NUTS!"
In a truly depressing commentary on the current state of the race, Wilmore noted that Deez Nuts garnered upwards of 9% of the vote whereas Senator Lindsey Graham, in one poll, managed to get "literally no support".
Being beaten is one thing, but being beaten by Deez Nuts must hurt a lot.
