Screengrab

What's in a name?

For news anchors around the country, Republican presidential contender Deez Nuts has proven to be a tough one to get through.

The candidate is actually a 15-year-old Iowa boy who filled out the proper forms to declare his candidacy using a crank name. Deadspin put together a supercut of news anchors being forced to say the name, which sounds like something Bart Simpson would use to call in to Moe's Tavern.

Deez Nuts, whose real name is Brady Olson, is polling at 9 percent in North Carolina against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

“The next step is to get some party nominations, like the Minnesota Independence Party or the Modern Whig Party,” Olson told The Daily Beast. “It would also be great to find a vp, preferably [cat Limberbutt] McCubbins because the Nuts/McCubbins ticket sounds amazing.”
