Fly Lepaks On Mike Pence’s Hair During US Debate, Biden Camp Now Selling Swatters

Fly Lepaks On Mike Pence’s Head During US Vice-Presidential Debate

While it’s less clear who the winner of the debate was, an unexpected star stole the show.

As Mr Pence was giving a speech about minority rights in the US, a fly casually landed on the US Vice-President’s hair and remained there for a good 2 minutes.

Social media soon became ablaze with memes, gifs, and clips to celebrate the 6-legged star.

It then lepak-ed there for slightly more than 2 minutes until roughly 1:29:40.

Though the fly wasn’t the largest of its kind, it provided a great contrast to Pence’s white hair.

However, the 6-legged creature left as quickly as it came, buzzing off as Pence shakes his head in disapproval of Harris’ claims.

Several Twitter accounts claiming to be the fly in question also started popping up, with one amassing over 83,000 followers within hours.

The Biden Victory Fund later started selling a blue swatter with the words “TRUTH over FLIES” printed on it.

Hopefully brought more attention to the US Elections

While the fly appears to be nothing more than an uninvited guest to the debate, it hopefully brought more attention to policies that the 2 Vice-Presidential candidates discussed.

With the US Presidential elections mere weeks away, this might perhaps be the unintended push to encourage US voters to be more familiar with the leaders they’re voting for.
