Apparently 'Deez Nuts' was accepted on the Iowa and North Carolina ballot because literally anyone can submit a declaration of candidacy, and no one checks to see if it's authentic.

As everything burns, you begin to realize that all the whimsy and friendship of before was all along just an act to placate those who needed protecting from the terrible truth. Nothing is, will be, or ever has been, fine.
