Unorthodox candidate challenges Biden, Trump

AFP – “Literally, nice to meet you,” said the one presidential hopeful who many voters might feel sums up their feelings about United States politics this election year.

“My name is ‘Literally Anybody Else’, and I’m running for president of the United States,” explained the 35-year-old teacher from Texas.

The wannabe politician formerly known as Dustin Ebey has legally changed his name to express his frustration over the 2024 White House rematch between elderly foes Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

It is an eye-catching stunt that presents a lot of bureaucratic challenges, but he does have serious issues to raise – explaining that he and his wife can’t afford to buy a home on their teacher’s salaries.

“As it stands right now, my generation and younger, we struggle with finding housing. We struggle with these basic things that 20, 30 years ago weren’t really a concern,” he told AFP while on the campaign trial.
