On Thursday's episode of the "The Nightly Show," Larry Wilmore finally addressed the political sensation sweeping the GOP primary: 15 year old Iowa farm boy "Deez Nuts."

"Deez Nuts is officially in the race -- or should I say, Deez Nuts are officially in the race," Larry Wilmore said.

According to Public Policy Polling, Deez Nuts is/are currently polling at 9% among North Carolina voters. In Minnesota and Iowa, Deez Nuts is polling at 8 and 7 percent, respectively.

Wilmore couldn't help but make a jab at Lindsey Graham who, according to that same poll, has "literally no supporters."

"Good grief. Teenagers are heading overseas to join ISIS and you don't have a single supporter," Wilmore quipped.

The "Nightly Show" host decided to check in with the Deez Nuts campaign director at the HQ, as one does.
