You may or may not have heard, but a fly landed on Mike Pence’s head during last night’s Vice Presidential Debate…
As soon as the pesky insect took its spot on Pence’s silver head of hair, #FlyGate was quick to start trending on Twitter.
And now, the internet is simply awash with puns and jokes surrounding the unfortunate mishap.
Many have already been discussing who should portray the fly for Saturday Night Live, a show whose sketches are known for their humorous and cynical take on American politics.
Everyone has the same man in mind.
Last night, Vice President Pence went head-to-head with his Democratic challenger, Kamala Harris, in the year’s first and only vice presidential debate.
In the 90-minute live debate at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Harris accused Pence and the president of deliberately misleading Americans about the lethality of coronavirus.
“They knew, and they covered it up.”
Referring to a blunder that ended Biden’s 1987 run for the presidency when he plagiarized a speech.
In which Harris responded by stating firmly that she “would not take a jab touted by Mr. Trump without the say-so of medical professionals.”
“The fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in a vaccine if the vaccine emerges during the Trump administration I think is unconscionable.”
Racism in America being one of them.
Harris slammed Trump’s track record with racism, and reminded viewers that “we are talking about an election in twenty-seven-days where last week, the President of the United States, in front of 70 million Americans, refused to condemn white supremacists.”
When discussing the highly-publicized murder of Breonna Taylor, Pence stated that he “trusts our justice system”, and blamed the grand jury for the injustice surrounding the case.
There was one slightly more ridiculous occasion that has stuck in people’s minds.
And viewers were transfixed.
As Pence, clearly oblivious to his visitor, continued with the debate.
And I have to admit, the reactions and memes have been pretty funny.
I love the internet, sometimes.
People have actually started discussing who they would like to portray the infamous fly in the next Saturday Night Live sketch.
Now, SNL has become reknown for its political comedy sketches…
And this year, they stirred up a lot of controversy with their take on the first presidential election, with Alec Baldwin portraying Trump and Jim Carrey taking on the role of Biden.
And everyone has the same idea in mind when it comes to the casting of the now-famous insect.
Yep, for some reason unbeknown to me, everyone has been calling for the iconic Jurassic Park actor to take on the role of the pesky fly.
As the actor is yet to even address the requests. But we can only hope, right?
