The fly that landed on Mike Pence's head during last night's vice-presidential debate has been stealing all the thunder and now, it has it's own Twitter account.
It's probably the most hilarious thing you'll see today...
Last night, Democratic challenger, Kamala Harris, and Trump’s Vice-president, Mike Pence, went head-to-head in the year's first and only vice presidential debate.
via: GettyFollowing the explosive debut presidential debate nearly 2 weeks ago, it is now time for the vice nominees to have their say.
It was a ferocious debate, to say the least...
via: GettyBut there was one thing that caught everyone's attention.
People just can't stop laughing...
via: GettyBecause a fly decided to land on Pence's head halfway through the debate and this has turned the vice-president into a complete laughing stock online.
So much so...
via: GettyThat the fly in question now has it's own Twitter account.
But before we get into that...
via: GettyLet's firstly meet our candidates and see what went down last night.
Standing for the Republicans, we have the current Vice President, Mike Pence.
via: GettyPence, a socially conservative Christian from the midwest, has been rehearsing for the debate with Pam Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida, playing the role of the Democratic candidate, the Axios website reported.
And, for the Democrats, we have Kamala Harris.
via: GettyHarris, a former criminal prosecutor and progressive Californian, is widely considered to be a formidable debater.
Harris won rave reviews for her performance in an early Democratic debate when she criticized Biden for his record on race...
via: GettySo people were expecting a real show.
Well, a show is what people got!
via: GettyOf course, the pandemic became the main talking point of the event and 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."
However, Pence shot back by accusing the Biden-Harris campaign of copying the White House's pandemic strategy...
via: GettyReferring to a blunder that ended Biden’s 1987 run for the presidency when he plagiarized a speech.
Susan Page, who moderated the event, then quizzed Harris on whether she would be taking any government-approved vaccine in the run-up to the election...
via: GettyIn which Harris responded by stating firmly that she "would not take a jab touted by Mr. Trump without the say-so of medical professionals."
Of course, this didn't sit well with Pence, who heads the White House coronavirus task force.
via: GettyHe retorted: "The fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in a vaccine if the vaccine emerges during the Trump administration I think is unconscionable."
It was all very sour...
via: GettyBut aside the vicious comments and hot-headed debating, there was one thing that people just couldn't help but notice.
And that was a fly that decided to land on Pence's head during the debate!
via: GettyIt was honestly the funniest thing to witness, and the internet has been going wild for it!
