Torrey Smith makes presidential endorsement

Torrey Smith's pick for president? #DeezNuts.

Torrey Smith has taken a stance on the 2016 presidential race.

But it's not Hillary, Donald or Jeb he wants to see in office. Smith's candidate of choice? "Deez Nutz."

The ex-Ravens receiver tweeted "Deez Nutz > Donald Trump" Wednesday, referring to the Independent candidate/professional teen troll. Deez Nuts (Smith took some liberties with the spelling of the last name) captured the Internet's collective attention when a Public Policy Polling poll released Wednesday showed that Nuts would garner 9 percent support in North Carolina in a presidential race with Clinton and Trump.

Unfortunately, The Daily Beast reports, Nuts is actually 15-year-old Brady Olsen from Wallingford, Iowa. He filed to run for President with the Federal Election Commission on July 26 under the assumed name.
